Dental crowns are a type of dental veneer that cover the teeth 360 degrees. They are also known as full veneers. They are not only offered for cosmetic concerns but also can strengthen damaged teeth and restore their functionality. For example, if the tooth has an ongoing decay, a dental crown can protect the rest of the tooth after cleaning the damaged area.
Application of dental crowns is an irreversible procedure. Teeth need to be shaved down 1 to 1.5mm for the application of dental crowns. If you are planning to get dental crowns for a smile makeover, please take your time to decide. It is a lifetime commitment.
Dental crowns last for 15-20 years and your oral hygiene and oral habits directly affect how long would they last.
Types of dental crowns we offer for our patients at Dental Platinum Turkey;
PFM (Porcelain fused to metal) Dental Crowns / Full Veneers:
PFM crowns are a mixture of metal and porcelain. They have a metal core inside with a porcelain exterior to match the colour of your natural teeth, however, we do not recommend them for front teeth since they might cause depigmentation on your gum tissue and black lines between your teeth and gum over time.
Zirconium Dental Crowns / Full Veneers:
Zirconium dental crowns have a white zirconia core inside with a porcelain exterior. They have a famous reputation for their toughness, therefore, we create dental bridges with zirconium dental crowns as well.
E.Max Dental Crowns / Full Veneers:
The main advantage of E.Max dental crowns is the natural-looking end results because of the translucency of the material.
There is a common misbelief that you do not need to brush your teeth after the application of dental crowns however this is completely false. You need to maintain good oral hygiene after the application of dental crowns. You need to floss and brush your teeth twice a day and visit your local dentist for your regular check-ups and for scale&polishing in every six months.
