What is a Dental Crown ?
A dental crown is a type of dental veneer. Where veneers cover only the visible surface of a tooth, a dental crown covers the whole tooth. In addition to restoring the natural looks of damaged teeth and restoring smiles, dental crowns can also make teeth stronger and increase their ability to function as normal. If you have teeth that are physically damaged due to cavities, chippings, or other issues, dental crowns may be beneficial to you. Premium Dental Turkey offers high-end, branded dental crowns at low-end prices.
Advantages of Dental Crowns
A dental crown is like a cap. It covers the top section of a partially damaged tooth, thus restoring its full functionality as well as appearance. Dental crowns offer many advantages to those who need it. The crowns are most commonly used to restore broken teeth. Many people have teeth that are physically damaged or worn down. If you are suffering from damaged teeth, a dental crown can individually return functionality to these teeth.
Dental crowns are also used to protect teeth at risk of severe damage. For example, if a tooth is at risk of serious decay, a dental crown can stall the damage and protect the rest of the tooth. If you are at risk of losing a tooth, a crown can be used to protect it. Dentists recommend dental crows for teeth with large fillings. If most of the enamel has been worn away and only a stub is remaining, you can use a dental crown without removing the tooth. A crown can certainly restore the appearance of worn down tooth nubs, particularly at the front of your mouth.
Some patients could use dental crowns to disguise severe tooth discoloration or make naturally misshapen teeth look more norl. Dental crowns can be used to hold dental bridges in place if you have been prescribed one by a dentist. If you have dental implants replacing missing teeth, a dental crown will convert the implant to a prosthetic tooth.
Dental Crowns for Children
Dental crowns are not only for adults. Dentists may recommend crowns for children with oral health problems. Baby teeth are commonly susceptible to decay. In some cases, the decay can become too severe for a filling and a dentist may recommend a crown. Kids, after all, don’t always brush their teeth as they are told to. Some children might not be able to take care of their teeth on a daily basis because of diseases, age, or behavioral problems. Dental crowns can be used by these children to protect baby teeth.
If your child’s paediatrician has recommended dental crowns, you can obtain the crowns at Premium Dental Turkey at rates lower than usual. Our products are wholly authentic and are of branded quality. But we don’t charge as much for operational costs, offering our patients the opportunity to keep overall costs low.
Types of Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are broadly categorized into two groups—permanent and temporary. Temporary crowns are recommended for short-term wear until the permanent crown is ready for application. There is one notable difference between temporary and permanent crowns: temporary crowns are made in the clinic by our expert technicians. Permanent dental crowns are made in a laboratory. Permanent dental crowns are made to last and cost more than temporary crowns.
Dental crowns are made from different types of material, which can determine the quality and cost of the product. Here’s a list of the most common material dental crowns are made of:
Temporary dental crowns are most commonly made of stainless steel. These crowns are typically used to protect fillings or stall decay. Stainless steel crowns are recommended for children because the crown naturally comes out when baby teeth fall out. Stainless steel crowns are also rather cheap compared to other material. You can also have these crowns placed in a single visit to the clinic.
Some types of dental crowns are made from metal alloys like platinum or gold. Most modern versions choose alloys with high concentrations of cobalt, chromium, or nickel. Metal crowns are durable and can withstand the shock of bites. The biggest drawback is, of course, the metallic colour, which may give you the look of a pirate.
Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM)
PFM crowns match colour to your natural teeth with a mixture of porcelain and a metal alloy. These crowns can restore smiles and add strength to the existing metal base. However, over time, if your gums recede, the metal line could become visible.
Ceramic or Porcelain
Dental crowns made from either all ceramic or all porcelain are prevalently used for restoring natural smiles. The ceramic or porcelain crowns do not look much different from natural teeth, and can thus be used to restore damaged teeth. These crowns can be used if the patient is allergic to a particular type of metal.
Dental Crown Brands
Here is a list of premium-grade dental crown brands our patients can benefit from:
Cubic Zirconia ( Zirconium Dental Crowns )
Cubic Zirconia dental crowns are made from porcelain and zirconium, a sturdy mineral. Zirconia has a famous reputation as a material that can stimulate the toughness of diamonds. Zirconia dental crowns consist of a white zirconium core and a porcelain exterior. The porcelain makes the crown appear just like natural teeth, while the metal insides protect the crown from impact damage. Unlike the typical metal crowns, Zirconia dental crowns never show a dark metal line even if your gums recede as you age. The metal is also white, so there’s no distinguishable difference. You can benefit from the sturdiness of metal crowns and the attractiveness of porcelain crowns with this unique brand. Premium Dental Turkey recommends Zirconia dental crowns for replacing front teeth on the upper or lower arch. This brand is particularly useful for restoring damaged smiles. All Zirconia dental crowns offered by our clinic will be designed at grade-A laboratories in Europe. We assure top quality, high levels of accuracy, and excellent looks for this brand of dental crown should you choose it.
CEREC DENTAL CROWNS
CEREC dental crowns are made from ceramic and are completely free of metals. We highly recommend CEREC dental crowns to our patients who are allergic to metals. There are multiple advantages of choosing a CEREC dental crown. The ceramic material the crowns are made of successfully emulate natural enamel. You can obtain prosthetic teeth that look and feel just like natural teeth with CEREC crowns. Additionally, the unique CEREC technology makes it possible to design a crown in a single day. You can obtain a CEREC dental crown with a single visit to a Premium Dental Turkey clinic. CEREC dental crowns are sturdy, highly attractive, and offer a perfect fit when custom-designed. You will feel little to no discomfort with this material. There’s also no risk of a metal line showing with age, as it happens with porcelain-infused crowns. Premium Dental Turkey offers the best-quality CEREC dental crowns available anywhere.
E.MAX DENTAL CROWNS
E.Max dental crowns are branded all ceramic products. E.Max crowns are made from a top-grade material known as lithium disilicate ceramic. The advantage of this material is that it is supremely tough, long-lasting, and opaque. E.Max dental crowns have a translucent white appearance very similar to real teeth. These crowns are known for their strength and attractive appearance. If you are seeking dental crowns for restoring smiles, then E.Max crowns are worth considering. E.Max is a world-renowned brand when it comes to dental crowns. You can be assured of naturally shaped and coloured teeth that will not be distinguishable from your normal teeth. These crowns also contain zero metal alloys. E.Max crowns are highly unlikely to fracture or crack. E.Max dental crowns are also fabulously expensive.

You won’t be burdened with sky-high operational costs so that you can afford the brand.
