Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that can be placed on top of a damaged tooth. Dental pain can be incredibly distracting in daily life and feeling self-conscious about the condition of your teeth can also be distressing.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed on top of damaged teeth. This type of dental treatment can provide a long-lasting solution to a variety of reasons including, for old, worn down teeth, for damaged or chipped teeth, or for discolored teeth. While dental crowns can often help to strengthen and prolong the life of a tooth, they can also be applied for purely cosmetic reasons.

What Are the Different Types of Dental Crowns?

When it comes to preparing to get dental crowns, there are a number of different options available. Which one you choose is dependent on the condition of your tooth, the purpose of the crown, and what you hope it will achieve. Below, we’ve outlined the main types of dental crown.

Metal Dental Crowns

Ceramic Dental Crowns

Porcelain Dental Crowns

Temporary Dental Crowns

Which Dental Crown Is Right for Me?

As previously mentioned, there are a number of different types of dental crowns that are specialized for different purposes. Below, we’ve briefly outlined the more specific forms of crowns and who they’re typically suited for.

  • All-ceramic crowns: Ideal for those whose priority is that their dental crowns look as natural as possible.

  • All-metal crowns: Due to their limited aesthetic appeal, these are best for those who need dental crowns fitted on their molar teeth at the back of their mouth.

  • Gold-ceramic crowns: These can be great for those who find that other types of crowns have caused irritation around their gums. Gold rarely causes this and it’s also a strong material that makes crowns fairly durable.

  • Ceramic-metal crowns: These provide a nice balance between aesthetics and durability. The metal makes them strong, while the ceramic gives them a natural look.

  • Zirconia crowns: These are durable, strong, and long-lasting, with zirconia considered to be the strongest material used in dentistry. These can also be layered with porcelain to enhance the shade and shape of the tooth.

  • Resin crowns: These tend to be a cheaper option as the price for the material is lower than either metals or ceramics. While they can be colored to give a natural look, they tend to wear away more quickly than other types.

Dental Crowns: Abroad or at Home?

The rise in the number of patients travelling abroad for dental crowns has made it more common to seek treatment options outside of your home country. There are a few main reasons for this rise in popularity.

  • Some of the most experienced and renowned dentists are based overseas.

  • Dental crown costs can be significantly cheaper abroad compared to in places like the US or UK.

At Qunomedical, we employ a strict vetting process for dentists based around high-quality and affordability. Many of these dentists also offer unique treatment packages for international patients. These packages aim to make your journey as stress-free as possible, with airport transfers, accommodation arrangements, clinic pickups, and aftercare guidance.
