HOW DOES IT WORK?

Crowns involve the placement of a tooth-shaped cap on top of an affected area, cementing it in place. They tend to be prescribed for a wide variety of patients. If patients have worn down their teeth over time, or if a large cavity has developed, then a crown may be the best remedy.

Sometimes, older fillings start to weaken an entire tooth leading to the need for extra strengthening and crowns are often needed following root canal treatment. They can also be applied for purely cosmetic reasons. For instance, they are a popular way to conceal discolouration or misshapen teeth. A crown is also applied on top of the abutment when a patient gets a dental implant procedure.

How is a crown prepared?

At the first appointment, a dentist will shape the tooth to create a shape that suits a crown.

After that, the dentist may make a mould in the shape of the tooth using a special form of dental "putty". Impressions are also taken of the teeth opposite the one being crowned, so that the dentist can ensure that the crown grinds smoothly against the opposing teeth.

In some cases, dentists can also use computer imaging software to take a snapshot of the affected tooth, which is sent to a laboratory which uses specialist software to assemble a crown.

In most instances, labs receive the impression and create hard copies, usually out of plaster. This hard mould is then used to create a metal, resin or ceramic crown, which is sent back to the dentist.

The dentist now cements the crown in place, and may need to trim it slightly to handle any imperfections in the preparation process.

How long does the treatment take?

The duration of the procedure depends on the reason for the treatment. If there is extensive tooth damage, a dentist may need to build up your tooth with an intermediate filling so that it is the correct shape for a crown to be applied.

Generally, you will attend a first appointment where the damaged tooth is ground into the appropriate shape. You will then receive a temporary crown for use while the permanent version is created.

A few weeks after that, you will need to return again for the application. The temporary cap is removed, and the moulded crown is then cemented in place. In both cases, the appointments should last no longer than 1 hour, and can be as quick as 30 minutes, although the whole process can take 3-4 weeks.

However, when traveling abroad to a clinic that accepts international patients, the whole process can be completed in as little as 1 week depending on the number of crowns to be made.

Types of Crowns

Dental crowns come in a range of different materials. Permanent crowns are usually constructed from precious metals like gold or platinum, cobalt or nickel alloys, resin, or ceramics combined with metal.

All-Ceramic Crowns

Ceramics or porcelain is a popular alternative for patients who want their crown to match up perfectly with their natural teeth. Modern porcelain crowns can be precisely coloured to match the patient's teeth. For all-ceramic crowns, the entire thickness is made from 100% ceramic. This allows the crown to have a greater thickness of translucent porcelain, which provides a more natural, glossy and shiny appearance.

Crowns can also be made from other materials:

Zirconia Crowns Zirconia crowns are durable, long lasting and well tolerated by the human body.

All-Metal Crowns All-Metal Crowns are typically used for hidden molar teeth due to their limited aesthetic appeal.

Gold-Ceramic Crowns Gold is often a preferred material for crowns due to its strength and the fact that it rarely irritates gum tissue.

Ceramic-Metal Crowns Ceramic-metal crowns are a popular option for individuals who are looking for a combination of strength and good aesthetics.

Additionally, resin crowns are available at a lower cost than either metals or ceramics. While they can be coloured to give a natural look, they tend to wear away more quickly.

In some cases, crowns cannot be applied, and a middle ground between fillings and crowns is used. Also known as "onlays", these caps are simply placed directly onto the tooth, with no extra mould required.

Dr. Ali is a clear perfectionist and takes great pride in his work which is evident in my new smile.

Dr. Ali was brilliant throughout the whole experience, explaining everything very clearly step by step. All the staff at Dentapoint very helpful and friendly. Hazal was especially helpful in explaining the best places to go for shopping and restaurants. She was also contactable at any time if I had any questions or queries and was quick to respond. The clinic is very clean and acts very professional. Dr. Ali is a clear perfectionist and takes great pride in his work which is evident in my new smile. The hotel is excellent, very clean and modern rooms, located perfectly for all amenities, restaurants, bus, shopping centers etc and only 10 mins in a taxi to the clinic (or a 30min walk).

I have had a huge transformation and would recommend Dentapoint to anyone looking to put that fresh new smile back on their face.

I was recommended off a friend who had been to Dentapoint before. Seeing his results was amazing and I wanted to also have the same. Getting in contact with this company was also so easy as I am from England. But a quick message to Mr. Ali was quickly reported back in the same day to discuss a price and plan. Only a week later I had a plan, a price, and an appointment ready for me. Mr. Ali and all the other members of staff was more than happy to help and answer my questions. Walking into Dentapoint I could see I was going to be well looked after and the rooms and place itself is very clean and tidy. After 6 days at an amazing hotel chosen by Mr. Ali I have had a huge transformation and would recommend Dentapoint to anyone looking to put that fresh new smile back on their face.

Then my first day of treatment I was immediately felt comfortable and then we started treatment straight away after my consultation. My experience with Megan was fantastic from my initial enquiry till the very end.

I was picked up on time everyday and from the airport! Then my first day of treatment I was immediately felt comfortable and then we started treatment straight away after my consultation. I have regular follow ups and continual support throughout. I can’t recommend this enough. My experience with Megan was fantastic from my initial enquiry till the very end. She was always there on the end of the phone when I needed a question answered and even if she was off I would still get an email with anything I needed to know
