Dr.Kavaz Explains: Dental Crowns

Dental Crown treatment is of one the most popular cosmetic dentistry services in Turkey. We can explain dental crowns as coverings. They fit over an existing tooth. 


The word "coverings" may make you think they are the same as dental veneers, but there is a difference. While veneers cover only the front side, crowns cover the entire tooth. 


Your dentist may prefer using dental crown treatment if you have weak, broken, or decayed teeth. Also, you should consider your dentist will have to remove a small amount of enamel from your tooth before bonding your new crown.

What we learned from our previous experiences when designing a dental crown treatment is to create a natural-looking smile. We will discuss all of these with you and will reach the best result. 


In Turkey, what types of dental crowns are used?

We use 5 different types of teeth crowns in Turkey as you see below;

  • Ceramic Crowns
  • Porcelain Crowns
  • Zirconia Crowns
  • Metal Crowns
  • Composite Resin Crowns

Ceramic Crowns: An all-ceramic crown consists entirely of porcelain or another type of ceramic. The crown sits over a filed-down tooth in order to restore its appearance, shape, or structure.


Porcelain Crowns: Porcelain crowns restore the natural appearance of your teeth. Porcelain crowns are designed to match your existing teeth, which is important if you need one on your front teeth. They're more aesthetic than metal crowns.

Zirconia Crowns: Zirconia is one of the newer materials used for dental restorative treatments. A zirconium oxide is a type of ceramic that is stronger than porcelain and some metal alloys. It encounters fewer sharp edges due to normal wear and tear.


Metal Crowns: Dental crowns are made from several metals by dental technicians. It is rare for metal crowns to chip or break. As far as wear is concerned, they last the longest, and they only require a small amount of enamel removal. Additionally, they can withstand biting and chewing.


Composite Resin Crowns: A resin composite is a material that replaces lost tooth tissue, regulates the colour and contour of a tooth, and improves facial aesthetics as a result. It is possible to apply resin composites for a wide range of purposes on the market.

Who is a good candidate for dental crowns? 

Dental crown candidates usually suffer from the following problems:

  • Teeth that are broken, cracked, or fractured

  • The walls of the teeth are vulnerable to breaking when large dental fillings are placed

  • Dental decay that is severe

  • Extraction or falling out of a tooth can result in a missing tooth

  • Teeth that are undersized or badly eroded

How do veneers and crowns differ?

Veneers and crowns differ from the following problems:

  • A veneer covers only the front surface of a tooth. Crowns replace the entire biting surface of a tooth.

  • Veneers must be applied to natural teeth. A dental crown can replace a natural tooth on a dental implant.

  • Crowns and veneers are typically reserved for molars and premolars when applied to natural teeth.

  • Costs for veneers are lower than crowns.

  • Veneers and crowns can be made from some of the same materials, but crowns are put under a lot more force when chewed.

  • Crowns are primarily a restorative treatment that restores appearance, while veneers are mostly cosmetic.
