A dental crown, one of the most common dental procedures in Turkey, is a cap in shape of a tooth, placed over a tooth, to restore its shape, size, strength, and to improve appearance.
Dental crowns are cemented into place and they fully encase entire visible part of a tooth above the gum line. Permanent dental crowns are made of stainless steel, gold or metal alloy; they can also be made of porcelain fused to metal, all resin, or all ceramic.
Although dental crowns is not a very difficult cosmetic dentistry treatment, it requires some skills from a dentist so it is very important that an experienced dentist is chosen, as he would also be able to recommend the most suitable type of dental crown for the patient.
To undergo dental crowns treatment, usually two visits are required at the dentist: first one is to examine the patient and to prepare and heal the tooth on which dental crown will be placed; second is the procedure itself. In some cases additional x-ray is required to allow the dentist to observe the condition of the tooth.

Veneers are usually made of porcelain while crowns may be all porcelain or porcelain and metal combination. Veneers are typically thinner and more delicate than crowns. Although they do not cover as much surface as crowns does, veneers are harder to make and take more time to prepare.
Are crowns strong? Would there be a problem while chewing?
Dental crowns are in most cases used to strengthen the teeth and therefore they are strong enough to chew food. They are usually made of porcelain and metal is typically fused, making it a very strong material.
Dental Crowns Procedure in Turkey
The first appointment of dental crowns in Turkey is designated for cleaning and the treatment area. During the first appointment, your dentist will clean out the portions of the tooth that have been damaged, and will also remove a small bit of natural tooth enamel to make space for the dental crown.
Your dentist in Turkey will then make an impression of the tooth for cap customization in the lab. The dental crown will be scrupulously crafted to fit comfortably over your tooth and within the surrounding teeth.
A temporary dental crown will be placed over the tooth for protection and to maintain your teeth’s natural appearance, until your next appointment. After the laboratory has crafted your custom-made crown, you’ll return to the dental clinic for a second appointment.
The temporary crown will be removed, and the permanent crown placed. Our dentists will then tone the crown in order to match the sheen of your surrounding teeth.
Dental crown placement may vary depending on each patient’s particular needs. Also, new technologies in dental clinics Turkey are constantly evolving to enhance the dental crown placement procedure.
