Dental Crowns Turkey Provide Function and Aesthetics
Today’s dental crowns provide function as well as aesthetics. When a tooth is cracked, fractured, broken, or affected by decay, Cosmetic Dentists Turkey recommend a root canal treatment — a process that is often necessary to ensure that any exposed pulp is untouched by infection. After root canal treatment, our dental team prepares for the placement of a dental crown. Commonly referred to as a cap, a dental crown fits completely over the top portion of a tooth, and can absorb bite impact to protect it from further damage. Dental crowns treatment in Turkey is crafted in a special dental lab, and are made from porcelain, E-Max, metal, zirconia, or a combination of porcelain and metal, depending on each specific case. While a dental crown is designed to cover the entire surface of the tooth, patients can also benefit from dental bridges to replace one or more missing teeth.
Who Benefits from Dental Crowns?
When a tooth becomes damaged or diseased, it cannot rebuild the structure it has lost, and it remains vulnerable to further damage. With restorative dentistry in Turkey, our dentists are able to protect your teeth from additional impairment. Dental crown treatment is an excellent solution for:
- Structural damage: A cracked, fractured, or broken tooth can often be salvaged by placing a dental crown over it. The crown can support the tooth while absorbing the impact of your bite, preventing further damage.
- Extensive tooth decay: Treating tooth decay requires removing the infected tooth tissue. In root canal therapy, where a significant amount of tooth structure is excavated and replaced with a filling, a dental crown is placed as the final step in the procedure to protect the tooth.
- Stubborn cosmetic blemishes: Teeth that exhibit intrinsic (internal) stains don’t respond to traditional teeth-whitening. If the entire tooth is discolored, a dental crown can offer a brand new exterior to restore the beauty of your smile. A crown can also restore a small or misshapen tooth to achieve symmetry in your smile.
- Tooth loss: As a replica of a natural tooth, a dental crown offers the most lifelike tooth replacement when secured to a dental implant. Designed to mimic lost tooth roots, dental implants are placed in the jawbone by an oral surgeon. When the surgical site heals, the prosthetic tooth root can support your dental crown as securely as natural roots.

Porcelain makes for a strong, stable and aesthetically appealing dental crown that’s highly resistant to wear. It provides a high level of biocompatibility due to the absence of metal. Dental porcelain can be designed to closely match the look of natural tooth enamel, while yielding desirable strength and resilience.
Porcelain dental crown can be an ideal choice when restoring the form and function of a damaged tooth, because a crown basically replaces the entire external portion of the tooth down to the gum level.
Full Metal Crowns
Metal crowns are an excellent option for back teeth where the forces of biting and chewing are the greatest. Metal provides durability and strength. A metal crown rarely breaks or chips. Not to mention, it requires minimal removal of tooth structure.
Porcelain Fused to Metal Crown
Porcelain fused to metal—also known as full-cast crowns—has porcelain fused on most or all parts of the tooth. This type of dental crowns features metal interior for strength and a porcelain exterior for a more natural-looking appearance. While this type of crown offers several advantages, there’s one drawback: it requires the removal of more tooth structure than other types of crowns.
