Dental Crowns & Full Veneers Turkey

(Types, Procedure, Cost)

Dental crowns are a type of treatment that is frequently used in smile makeover. Moreover, dental crowns provide correction of your smile line and whiter and brighter smile by masking the fractures, discoloration or cavities on your teeth.

Dental crowns are a type of treatment that we often use to improve the smile and bite of our clients. In addition, dental bridges are produced in our laboratory by combining more than one crown. Moreover, crowns form the upper part of implants that replace missing teeth.


What Is A Dental Crown & Full Veneer?

Dental crowns are a kind of veneers that cover the tooth 360 degrees. Therefore, they are also known as Full Veneers. It is a treatment applied to keep a damaged, worn and weakened tooth in the mouth for many years or even a lifetime. At the same time, dental crowns are a suitable treatment option for patients who do not want to get braces treatment in cases of severe crowding and who want fast results.

Dental Crown Procedure

For dental crown treatment, first of all, we prepare the damaged and weakened tooth. Basically, preparation for the dental crown requires removal of 1.5 mm of enamel from the tooth. (Yes, dental crowns require more shaving than porcelain veneers.) After the preparation, an impression is taken from your tooth and sent to the laboratory. When you come for the second visit, finally we can put the dental crown that made in the laboratory. 

For more information, please read our blog post on What To Expect During The Dental Veneers Treatments.


How Long Do Dental Crowns & Full Veneers Last?

You use your dental crowns for an average of 15 years. It is up to you to extend this period, with proper oral care, you can increase it up to 20 years. Snowdrop Premium Turkey Dental crowns have 5 years guarantee and comes with a free after-care service.

Is A Dental Crown & Full Veneer Worth It?

Yes, definitely. If you have a tooth that needs a dental crown, neglecting it will cost you more in the future. So, if you have a broken or weakened (after root canal treatment) tooth, or has a large cavity, it may even be pulled in the future if you do not get a dental crown. In conclusion, it is always more costly to treat a extracted tooth (dental implant or dental bridge).

The Differences Between Dental Crowns Vs Dental Veneers

The main difference between dental crowns and porcelain veneers is that the veneer only covers the front surface of the tooth but the dental crown covers the entire tooth (360 degrees). For this reason, we can also call dental crowns ‘full veneers‘. In addition, porcelain veneers are thinner than dental crowns.

Do You Really Need A Dental Crown?

The best way to find out if you need a dental crown is to see a dentist. You can get a free consultation by contact us via Whatsapp.

If you have the problems listed below, you probably need a dental crown & full veneer.

  • Tooth With Large Decay And Old Filling; Such a situation weakens your tooth and may cause it to break in the future. Protecting such a tooth by applying a dental crown will allow you to use your tooth for many more years. In addition, if a tooth that has started to decay is left without a dental crown, the decay will spread and the adjacent teeth may also rot.
  • After Root Canal Treatment; During the root canal treatment, we remove the nerves of the tooth and that means; unfortunately, the tooth loses its vitality. A tooth that loses its vitality becomes weaker and more prone to fracture. To prevent the tooth from breaking, it is necessary to make a dental crown after root canal treatment.
  • Broken Or Damaged Tooth; in such cases, not treating the tooth may even lead to tooth extraction in the future. Besides, foods constantly accumulate in the broken and cavities area, which leads to bad breath and the spread of caries. To prevent these and to use your teeth for many years or even a lifetime, dental crowns are required.
  • Misaligned Teeth; Some instances where you are not satisfied with the size, shape, alignment or color of your teeth, if porcelain veneers are not suitable for you, dental crowns and full veneers will be our first choice.
  • Crowding Teeth or Gaps Between Teeth; we sometimes do not want long-term treatments such as orthodontics and where the braces appear. In such cases, a great smile design can be done with dental crowns and you can have your dream smile in a week. But if your crowding is not severe, our first choice will be porcelain veneers.

Types Of Dental Crowns

Today, there are many different types of dental crowns that vary depending on the aesthetics of the material, the cost and the needs of the patient. These are;

  • Full Porcelain Crowns (eMax Ceramic)
  • Zirconia Crowns
  • Gold Crowns
  • Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns (PFM)

Full Porcelain Crowns (eMax Ceramic)

Today, the latest and newest dental crown material produced in dentistry is the full ceramic crown known as eMax. eMax porcelain is one of the most important materials of smile makeover with its light transmittance, translucency, perfect brightness and wide color options. So, eMax crowns are very satisfying for patients who want a natural and attractive smile. In addition, eMax porcelain is available in a wide range of colors, including Hollywood white.

Zirconia Crowns

Zirconia crowns offer the strength of metal and the aesthetics of porcelain together. There is no metal in zirconia crowns. Due to their aesthetic properties, we can easily prefer them in the anterior region. We can also use zirconia crowns in the back area (molar teeth) as they are resistant to chewing forces. Particularly, we recommend crowns for patients who have a habit of clenching their teeth.

Gold Crowns

Gold crowns are popular with their strength and durability. Today, they are also used in smile makeover due to the change in the aesthetic point of view.

Porcelain Fused-to-Metal Crowns

Dentists frequently used the Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns (PFM) crowns when aesthetic options such as zirconia and eMax were not available (15-20 years ago). Today, with the developing technology, much more aesthetic alternatives have been produced (like zirconia and eMax) and the use of metal based porcelain crowns has decreased. These crowns, which are produced by covering a metal substructure with porcelain, are not aesthetically satisfactory. Because there may be metal reflection from the bottom of the porcelain and there will be discoloration (a gray line at the gum line) on the gums due to the use of metal.

How Much Does Full Set of Veneers Cost?

Full veneers are expensive treatments in cosmetic dentistry. The cost of this treatment is determined by the experience of the cosmetic dentist and laboratory, and the conditions of the clinic. We offer you very reasonable prices on dental crowns & full veneers. In our clinic, dental full veneer prices (including laboratory fee and temporary veneers) start from £135 to £185.

America is probably the most expensive country for dental treatments. In the US, having a single dental veneer can cost an average of $2000.

While this figure is 1500 € in European countries, it is 1200 £ in the UK.

Dental Crowns & Veneers are not usually applied to a single tooth. Mostly they are applied to 20 teeth (10 top 10 bottom). Many people may not be able to afford the amount paid when you need more than one full veneer. But thanks to the affordable treatment prices in Snowdrop Premium Dental Turkey, you can easily have full set of veneers.
