Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover that is placed over a tooth to encase and restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. Dental crowns are a secure way to fill gaps and help restore your smile if you have missing or damaged teeth or simply want to improve your smile. Since your smile is one of the key features of your face, having an impressive smile can make things easier in life.

Crowns are made from several types of materials. Metal alloys, ceramics, porcelain, composite resin, or combinations of these materials may be used. In the process of making a crown, the material often is coloured to blend in with your natural teeth. Each of the materials has its own set of advantages and disadvantages, so the right crown material for you will depend on which teeth are being capped, how you want them to look aesthetically, and how long you need them to last. Our outstanding dentistry team in Turkey will be helping you decide the best treatment for your case!

A dental crown may be needed to:

  • Protect a weak tooth (for example, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
  • Restore a broken tooth or a severely worn-down tooth
  • Cover and support a tooth with a large filling and not much tooth remaining
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Cover misshaped or severely discoloured teeth
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a tooth treated with a root canal

Once the dental technician or laboratory has created the crown, it is time for the crown to be placed over the tooth. It is important to check that the crown has been made correctly, ensuring that both the fit and the colour of the crown match that of the natural and surrounding teeth before it is cemented in.

Our dentists carry out the fitting process carefully and make sure your crowns fit perfectly, making sure that you will be back to your country with a flawless smile just like you desire!
