Details

The crown is a cover or cap-like material that dentists can place on the tooth. Crown treatment aims to restore the tooth to its normal shape, size and function. A crown can make your tooth stronger or improve its appearance. Crowns are made of various materials including metal alloys, stainless steel, ceramic, porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal or composite resin. In deciding the material of the crown, dentists take into account many factors such as the position and function of the tooth, the position of the gum tissue, the number of teeth visible when smiling, the color of the tooth, and of course the patient's preference. After the crown is produced, the material is colored to fit natural teeth and look natural. The primary goal of dentists in crown treatment is to make a durable crown that looks natural and is indistinguishable from other teeth.


Who Is This For?

  • Individuals who have a large cavity or a discolored, misshaped, cracked, worn down, or weakened tooth
  • Individuals who have had root canal treatment and want to protect the restored tooth
  • Individuals who want to improve their smile 

Treatment Duration

Apart from two weeks for waiting period of the crown, the whole procedure on average requires 1.5 to 2 hours of total time sitting in the dentist's chair.

Potential Risks & Side Effects

How Does it Work?

Dental crown procedure involves placing and cementing a cap on top of a damaged tooth. Simply put, crowns are designed to support and maintain the functionality of a diseased or rather a damaged tooth-teeth. This procedure of placing dental crowns is painless and it can help restore your original tooth-teeth appearance, size, strength and shape. 


What Does a Dental Veneer Procedure Involve?

If you are undergoing the crowns procedure at a local dental clinic, the process may take a few weeks to complete, but if you travel abroad for the treatment, the crowns procedure will be completed in 5 to 10 days.

Once you have you decided to have this procedure, we will make sure that you have a pleasant trip and your dentist will customize the crown according to the correct color and shape and preferences that are comfortable for you. Just to give you an idea of what to expect, here are some of the stages you will go through if your decide to have this procedure:

1.     Consultation with the dentist

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your dentist. He/she will examine your teeth so as to if the crowns are a suitable option for you. During your first which is done online, you will be required to send the pictures of your teeth and to inform the dentist about your dental history. It is during the face-to-face consultation session that you will have to discuss your goals and expectations with your dentist –this is done so that you’re both on the same page before the procedure commences.

2.     Preparation for the crowns

The first visit to the dentist before the placement of the dental crown is intended for the preparation of crowns. The dentist will apply a temporary crown to protect the original tooth during the visit. Your dentist will also take an x-ray of the teeth and jawbone to check signs of decay or other factors that may increase the risk of infection or injury.

If there is any decayed tooth, your dentist will treat it at this stage. In some cases, root canal treatment may be required before the crown is placed. After the root canal treatment is done, the dentist will use the crown. He/she will also take the impression of your bite to ensure that your teeth come together correctly.

3.     Placing the crowns

In your second visit, the dentist will place the permanent crowns on top of your teeth. Nowadays, modern developments are allowing dentists to optical printing. This allows the dentist to send a digital impression to laboratory instead of physical.

The dentist will shape the tooth in order to allow the crown to be placed, the degree of reshaping will depend on the type of crown used. For example, metal-based crowns tend to thin and therefore require less tooth structure to be removed than porcelain crowns.


What Should I Expect from a Crowns Procedure?

After dental crown treatment, you should avoid hard or chewed food such as candy, which has the potential to damage the crown.

If you are grinding your teeth, most dentists will recommend wearing mouth protectors at night. Because over time, repeated grinding causes the crown to wear.

You should remember that standard oral hygiene care, such as consistent and regular brushing and flossing, will protect both the crowned tooth and other teeth from tooth decay and gum disease.


Things You Should Do Before Having Dental Crowns

  • A week before the procedure, you should stop taking Aspirins and any other meds associated with blood thinning.
  • If you are allergic to any drugs, you should inform your dentist as soon as possible.
  • Patients advised to avoid smoking 24 hours before the surgery.
  • Consuming any alcoholic beverages can affect anesthesia. So you should not take in anything alcoholic 24 hours prior surgery.
  • If you are taking meds for chronic or acute diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, you should inform your dentist before the surgery commences.

    I would absolutely recommend this clinic and Dr. Osman. I recently had 20 zirconium crowns placed on my teeth and am so happy with the outcome. At first, I was extremely nervous about the procedure but every step of the way I was able to contact the Flymedi with my questions through WhatsApp. I was provided with transportation to and from each appointment and to the airport even though my flight left very early in the morning. Dr Osman was very patient with me, I am a very nervous patient and the drilling always scares me. He was understanding and patient. My treatment was completed over 3 appointments. Before the procedure started Dr. Osman took the time to explain and answer any of my questions and giving me advice on aesthetics and color of the crowns. During the whole treatment, I was given outstanding service that was above anything I have experienced in the U.S. or U.K. I am so thankful to the team at Umut Antalya Dental Clinic and Flymedi would recommend it to anyone.
