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, chipped, misaligned, misshaped 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 affordable 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 the smiles and create full smile transformation including the shape and size of your teeth. Since Dental Crowns cover the whole tooth they enable us to reshape your tooth. 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 or replacing amalgam 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 discolouration or make naturally misshapen teeth look more normal. Dental crowns can be used to create dental bridges in order to replace your missing teeth. If you have dental implants to replace 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 behavioural 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, therefore, you will be able to chew and talk as normal. We provide your temporary crowns free of charge. Permanent dental crowns last 15-20 years according to your oral hygiene.  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:

Stainless steel

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.

Alloy Metals

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 the 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. We do not offer PFM Dental Crowns for your front teeth if you are not on a strict budget.

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.  We assure top quality, high levels of accuracy, and excellent looks for this brand of the dental crown should you choose it.

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. At Premium Dental Turkey, we offer the same branded E.Max dental crowns that you can find elsewhere in Europe but at lower rates. You won’t be burdened with sky-high operational costs so that you can afford the brand. To learn more about choosing a dental crown and how the procedure works, contact Premium Dental Turkey.

Dental Crowns Aftercare

The first step to ensuring that your dental crowns will last is to take care of the crowns precisely the way that you are meant to. This is especially important shortly after the crowns have been implanted in your mouth. To keep them in the best possible condition, here is what you will need to know:

Temporary Crowns

During your initial visit, your dentist will begin prep work on your crowns. This includes taking an impression of your teeth to get a custom one made. It also involves filing down your tooth for an improved fit. Now, until the custom crowns are made, you will be fitted with temporary crowns. It is incredibly vital that you take good care of this temporary crowns. Since the fit isn’t exact, it may be dislodged or broken more easily. Thus, you need to follow your dentist’s instructions perfectly if you want it to remain in place until your permanent crowns are ready.

Choose Foods Carefully

The first thing you will need to do is to be more selective of the food that you eat. It is best to stay away from foods that can be considered chewy or sticky. These can stick to the crowns and then pull them off, requiring you to undergo a new procedure. On a similar note, you should also avoid very hard foods for a while as well. Since temporary crowns aren’t all that durable, there is a possibility that a hard piece of food can damage, break, or dislodge the crown. You may also want to make a conscious effort to chew on the other side of your mouth for a while. At the very least, focus on that side for tougher foods. This, too, will minimize the risk of the crowns getting damaged.

Be Cautious When Flossing

While the temporary crowns are in place, it is important for you to continue brushing your teeth and flossing as normal. Nevertheless, you do need to be a bit more careful in the manner in which you floss. Avoid pulling the floss upwards from the space between your teeth. Instead, gently slide it out of the gum line. This way, there is less chance of the crowns slipping out.

The Permanent Crowns

The good news is that your final crowns will be a lot more durable than your initial ones. What’s more, they will also provide you with a better fit, ensuring that they will not be dislodged as easily. That being said, you must know how to care for it properly.

Immediately After the Procedure

It will take around 24 hours for your crowns to be properly cemented on top of your existing tooth. Until this has happened, there is a risk of the crowns being pulled off by foods or by too much force in the areas of the crown. This is why you must wait at least an hour or two before you can consume any food or drink. After this, it is best to eat soft foods and to stay away from anything that is hard, chewy, or crunchy. You can resume your regular diet once the crowns have been cemented thoroughly. For this period of time, you must also be careful when flossing between your teeth. As with the temporary crowns, you will need to slide the floss upwards rather than tugging it. After 24 hours, you can resume your regular oral care routine.

Continuing Care

There is a chance that you may feel some sensitivity / pain for a month or two it’s very normal and we are expecting that. During this time, your dentist will advise you to use a toothpaste that reduces sensitivity. ( Sensodyne etc.. ) You can also gargle with salt water 3 times a day to help the healing process. The purpose of your dental crowns is to strengthen the area above the gum line. However, your gums and the area between your gums and dental crowns aren’t protected by this prosthetic. Therefore, it is important for you to follow a healthy routine. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing on a regular basis. If you have a history of periodontal disease, your dentist may recommend that you use a fluoride rinse daily as well. This will help to prevent tooth decay. It is also important to keep in mind that despite being durable, crowns still have the chance of being damaged. So, you should try to minimize risky activities as much as possible. Avoid biting down on ice, crack nuts, open a beer cap and other hard foods or materials. Also, protect your teeth well if you are engaging in high-contact sports. If you have a bruxing / grinding habit you must wear your night guards every day while you are sleeping.

When to Contact Your Dentist

It is a good idea to visit your local dentist on schedule. This will allow him or her to carefully examine the crowns and ensure that everything is in good condition. Depending on your case, your dentist may need to see you at least a couple of times a year. If you do notice continued swelling or bleeding around the crowns area, you should call Premium Dental Turkey. We may need to take another look at the crowns to determine if it was fitted properly. There is always a chance that your crown may become loose or dislodged completely. In this instance, it is best to speak to us immediately and depending on the case you may need to visit your local dentist. If the crown does come off, make sure to save it. Any dentist can easily re-cement it back into place. These are the top things that you need to know about dental crowns aftercare. To keep the crown, your gums, and the rest of your teeth in good condition, make sure to follow these guidelines strictly. Also, don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
