Dental Crown can also be considered a complete Dental Veneer. They cover the entire tooth 360°. Crowns can be used to cover damaged, broken, or worn-down teeth. Crowns can transform smiles in cases where existing teeth are unusually shaped or worn. Crowns allow dentists to completely alter the shape of your teeth, making adjustments that may not be possible with a Laminate Veneer. Crowns can be crafted to match your teeth, close gaps (bridgework), or give you a completely new smile. Crowns have a longer lifespan than other dental treatments like Lumineers. Dental Crown can look like natural teeth and replicate surrounding teeth’ shapes, sizes, and colors.
Crowns can also protect the tooth beneath, preserving your natural tooth and gums over a longer time.You can use dental crowns to create a cosmetic effect that extends beyond the dental area. The results can be seen all over the face, including the lips, cheeks, and mouth. Patients say that it gives the whole face a youthful, refreshed appearance. Dental Crowns can be used greatly for Smile Makeovers or Dental Facelifts.

PFM, or Metal Porcelain Crowns, is a product of a marriage of porcelain and metal Crowns. Although they are durable and aesthetically pleasing, they are not recommended for everyone or every position in the dental area. The crown’s core is typically made of a nickel-based grey metal to create a natural, tooth-like appearance. An overlay of white porcelain is glued to the outside to give it a natural white appearance. Although considered very durable, if your gums recede, you might notice a black line at the top of your smile. To maintain your gum health and teeth, it is recommended to replace Metal Porcelain Crowns every 6-7 years if you have chosen Metal Porcelain Crowns. These crowns are best for use on the back or side teeth and over Dental Implants.
All Metal Porcelain Crowns offered by clinics in Antalya and Fethiye in Istanbul, Marmaris, and Istanbul are made in dental laboratories known for their precision and excellence. Remember that the skills of the Cosmetic Dentist are only part of the treatment. It is vital to consider the quality of the Crowns and the skills of your Dental Technician to achieve a great result.
Cubic Zirconia, a new material that simulates diamonds, was in the news a few years back. It is the same substance that Zirconium Dioxide uses to create Zirconium Crowns. Zirconium Porcelain crowns are extremely tough, durable, and attractive. Zirconium Porcelain crowns are made from a pure white metal core, a permanent white metal. The Porcelain is fused to the outside of the Crown, giving it the appearance of natural teeth. Some Crowns can be made entirely from Zirconium without the use of Porcelain. This Crown has a positive side: you won’t see any black lines if your gums recede. The Crown will always look white around the gum line. Because the Crown is 100% white, the transparency of the tooth is much higher. Zirconium Porcelain crowns are healthier than Metal Porcelain because they do not contain Nickel. Zirconium/ Porcelain crowns look more attractive when you smile. They are recommended for your upper and lower front teeth (8 upper/8 lower) or teeth along your smile line.
All clinic’s Zirconium Porcelain crowns are made from A-grade Zirconium in laboratories known for their dental excellence and accuracy. Remember that the skills of the Cosmetic Dentist are only one part of your treatment. It is vital to consider the quality of the Crowns and the skills of the Dental Technician to achieve a great result. The laboratories only use the best materials from around the world.
We use Dental crowns for prosthetic restorations made to restore a damaged tooth to its original size and shape. They are used on cracked, damaged, or decaying teeth. It makes sense that the restorations are called “crowns.” Although they sometimes extend down onto the root surface, crowns replace the outer aspect of a natural tooth’s “crown” part.
When affixed, the crown fully encases the portion of the damaged tooth that sits above the gum line. For each tooth, crowns are custom-made. They can include ceramics, porcelain, metal, gold, or resin.
Dentists install crowns to perform several essential functions. Crowns restore broken teeth, prevent cracked teeth from breaking further, support teeth that have large fillings and protect weak teeth. Some crowns are also used to hold dental bridges in place. In each case, the crown supports or replaces a structure that no longer works on its own.
Whenever teeth are severely damaged, cracked, broken, or misshapen, crowns are the most effective solution. Crowns correct the alignment of a damaged tooth and improve its appearance. After a crown is cemented in place, it’s usually the only visible part of the tooth. Crowns don’t stand out or look odd inside the mouth. They are made to look like good natural teeth.
Crowns fit on teeth much the same way sewing thimbles fit on fingertips – they fit over the top of a tooth and protect what’s underneath it. They’re cemented in place and, once affixed, act as a new top for the tooth while holding it together and keeping it from breaking apart.
They are constructed of very resilient and durable materials. Crowns are designed to endure the traumas of chewing just as effectively as the rest of your teeth. You can think of a crown-like a cover for the top (visible) portion of your tooth. Crowns essentially become a part of that tooth after the dentist cements the crown to your damaged tooth.
Our dentist will apply anaesthetic to numb the tooth, getting the crown and the surrounding gum tissue firstly. Then, we will use a dental drill and an abrasive bur to remove the outer surface of the tooth on the top and all sides, creating enough room for the crown to be placed. If there’s not enough of the tooth left to support the head, they may first add a crown buildup to create a sound foundation on which the crown would sit. The dentist will then make an impression of the tooth using dental impression paste, putty, or a digital scanner. The impact will be sent to a dental laboratory actually to make the crown.
It usually takes about two to six days to get the crown back from the dental laboratory after the dentist sends them the impression. It’s not suitable for the tooth to leave it uncovered over that time, so our dentist will install a temporary crown during your initial visit. When the permanent crown comes back at the dental office, you’ll have a second appointment with the dentist to install it. The temporary crown will be removed, and the new crown will be adjusted to fit your tooth and bite properly. Then Dentists use a special cement to affix the crown to the tooth. When the cement cures, the crown is firmly attached to the tooth.
They restore the shape, strength, functionality, and appearance of a damaged tooth. After you have one place, you’ll be able to use your tooth to chew again without risking damage to what’s underneath it. Crowns protect the vulnerable part of the tooth by physically holding it together and shielding it from damage.
Crowns are also crucial to restoring and maintaining the structural integrity of your mouth and bite. When a tooth decays or breaks, it leaves a gap. That gap can create further problems when it interferes with your bite or when other teeth migrate into it. Crowns restore your mouth’s proper structure, by filling that gap. Last but not least, crowns also restore the appearance of your mouth, as they are mostly indistinguishable from natural teeth.
Typically, patients travel for seven days when getting dental crowns or full veneers, with five full days dedicated to the treatment (excluding arrival and departure days). You must have three dental appointments during these five days to complete the procedure. However, suppose you opt for Celtra Duo or DCT White® crowns or full veneers that use CAD-CAM technology. The treatment may be completed in less time, and the recommended travel time will be adjusted based on the number of crowns or veneers needed. The clinic will confirm the recommended travel time in all quotations.
A Dental Bridge can be created by Dentists using a set of Dental Crowns/ Full Veneers if you have missing teeth or multiple missing teeth along the same row. It is fixed to the gaps on either side and is very easy to maintain with daily brushing. The gap will close, and the teeth will look like individual teeth. We can provide you with many examples of before and afterward.
VIP Clinics offer over 30 colors per the vita color shade chart, a universal shading system for teeth. Hollywood White, also known as BL1, is the whitest shade. DCT White(r), also known as Hollywood White, is offered by the clinic. It comes in one shade that exceeds BL1, giving you the Hollywood Smile. All shades are available at the clinics, from Hollywood white to natural to yellow to brown. The most common choices for a Smile Makeover or Dental Facelift are Hollywood White and Natural White. The Dental Technicians can match the color of your Crowns/ Full Veneers with the surrounding teeth if you’re planning Cosmetic Dentistry. The Dentists can also perform Professional Teeth Whitening using a laser to brighten your smile before you make your choice.
Some patients prefer the natural look, while others prefer the fake look. All options are discussed during the consultation. You can choose which color you want. The shade you choose should be based on your vision, skin tone, and hair color. The Dental Technicians can shade the interior or exterior porcelain layer to match the crown/full veneer or the surrounding teeth. This will ensure that the tooth color is slightly graduated along the gum line and is similar to a natural tooth. On request, we can provide examples of different tooth colors.
Dental Crowns/Full Veneers are guaranteed five years after the treatment is completed. However, they can last up to 15-20 years if proper oral hygiene is practiced. Patients have visited the clinics to replace Crowns/Full Veneers from over 35 years ago.
Patients who travel abroad for treatment may need to pay attention to the dental guarantee. Many clinics need to disclose the terms and conditions of their guarantee. It is not required for any dental clinic to offer any guarantee. This is why it is important to ask before you book your treatment. Many dental clinics don’t offer any guarantee. The mere fact that a treatment is covered by a 2-year, 5-year, or 3-year guarantee does not explain the actual coverage. Dental Centre Turkey is proud to ensure patients receive treatment at their local clinic. This guarantees transparency and a clear explanation of the terms and conditions.
Turkey’s VIP clinics are classified as “Dental Centers” and are licensed and regulated fully by the Turkish Ministry of Health. The standards of a Dental Centre are higher than those of a regular dental clinic. Although many clinics use the term VIP (or Dental Centre), there are no additional services on-site or registration as a Dental Centre. Legitimate dental centers are permitted to offer a wider range of services than a policlinic or boutique clinic. Patients should verify the registered name of their clinic if they need clarification. Names will include either the term Poliklinik, which is a legal clinic for dental work, or diş sağlığı Merezi, which is a Dental Centre. Most Turkish dental clinics, including those described as boutique clinics or licensed as Polikliniks, cannot legally provide the same services as a Dental Centre. A licensed Dental Centre has the advantage of an on-site clinic lab staffed with highly qualified Dental Technicians. A total of 12 Dental Technicians are currently employed on-site to design and fabricate dental crowns and veneers. A Dental Centre allows the clinic full control over the quality and skill of the products used for dental treatment. It is important to understand that the Dentist is usually only responsible for preparing the teeth for a restoration or cosmetic or restorative dentistry. This is just one aspect of the whole treatment. A highly qualified and skilled Dental Technician is responsible for creating individual restorations tailored to the patient’s requirements and accurate in fit, function, and aesthetics. Although your local Dentist may be familiar with cosmetic dentistry, most of the time, they need to be more experienced to place many crowns/ full veneers each week. VIP clinics place more than thousands of Crowns/ Full Veneers every week. They have also invested heavily in 3D CAD/CAM technology. You have complete control over the final result, including smile design and tooth shape. It is impossible to afford treatment at a local clinic with such advanced skills and technology. Patients favor these clinics for their Cosmetic Dentistry because they have a track record of providing excellent dentistry and optimum results.
Dental Crowns and Full Veneers are cosmetic dental treatments that are not classified as surgical procedures and are generally not too invasive. The use of local anesthetic is common in these treatments to numb the area and prevent any discomfort during the procedure. Therefore, patients should not experience pain during the treatment.
You will have a complete consultation at the clinic at your first appointment. They will also take a Panoramic X-Ray of your teeth to assess the condition. The Dentists will prepare your teeth after your consultation. Temporary teeth are provided to you before you leave the clinic. This allows you to continue your daily activities until you return for a trial fitting. The Dentists will perform a trial fitting for the Dental Crown/ Full Veneer at your next appointment. They will also check if any adjustments are needed before the porcelain is applied to the teeth or final preparations are made. The new Crowns/ Full Veneers are cemented in place at your final appointment. If you or the cosmetic dentist believe that additional adjustments are necessary, can be made within 24 hours.
