Everything You Need to Know About Dental Crowns


Dental crowns are a common dental procedure that can help restore the function and appearance of damaged teeth. If you have a damaged or decayed tooth, your dentist may recommend a dental crown to protect and strengthen it.


Here is everything you need to know about dental crowns, including what they are, how they work, and why they are important for your oral health.

What Are Dental Crowns?


A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. It is custom-made to fit over your existing tooth and is cemented in place to cover the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gum line. Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, zirconium, metal, or a combination of materials. Your dentist will recommend the best material for your specific needs based on the location of the tooth, the extent of damage, and your budget.

  • Dental crowns are an important dental procedure for several reasons:


    • Protection and Restoration of Damaged Teeth


    Dental crowns are important in dentistry because they protect and fix teeth that are damaged.

    If a tooth is cracked, chipped, or weakened because of decay, a dental crown can help. It stops the damaged tooth from getting worse and makes the tooth strong and functional again.

    • Improved Appearance


    In addition to restoring function and structural integrity to damaged teeth, dental crowns have the added benefit of enhancing the overall appearance of your smile.​

    By closely matching the color and shape of your existing natural teeth, these crowns seamlessly blend in, resulting in a beautifully harmonious and natural looking smile transformation.

    • Long-Term Solution


    Dental crowns, also referred to as tooth caps, are a highly effective and durable treatment method specifically designed for the purpose of restoring damaged or weakened teeth to their optimal functionality and appearance.​

    By encapsulating the entirety of a tooth, from its outer surface to its gum line, dental crowns provide a long-term solution that can effectively address a wide array of dental issues, ranging from cracks and fractures to extensive decay.​

    This remarkable longevity offered by dental crowns, when coupled with the proper care and regular maintenance they require, enables them to retain their exceptional performance and visual appeal for numerous years, thus positioning them as a prudent and financially viable choice for individuals seeking an efficient remedy for their damaged teeth.

    • Protection After Root Canal Treatment


    After undergoing a root canal treatment, which involves the removal of infected pulp from the tooth's root canals, it is highly recommended by dental professionals to have a dental crown placed over the treated tooth.​

    The purpose of this dental crown is to provide an additional layer of protection, shielding the tooth from any potential damage that it may encounter in the future. This crucial step is crucial as the root canal procedure, despite effectively addressing the underlying issue, inevitably weakens the tooth's structure.​

    Consequently, the treated tooth becomes inherently vulnerable to the risk of fractures or breakages. Thus, the placement of a dental crown on the treated tooth serves as an essential preventive measure, ensuring its long-term stability and minimizing the possibility of any further complications or the need for subsequent dental procedures.

    • Support for Dental Bridges


    Dental crowns can also be used to support dental bridges. A dental bridge is a prosthetic tooth that is used to fill in the gap left by a missing tooth.​

    The bridge is anchored to the adjacent teeth with the help of dental crowns, providing a stable and natural-looking replacement for the missing tooth.

  • These crowns are popular for their ability to mimic the natural color and texture of teeth. They are a good choice for front teeth restorations due to their aesthetic appeal. However, they might not be as durable as other types, making them less ideal for back teeth.

  • Known for their exceptional durability and strength, zirconia dental crowns are suitable for both front and back teeth. They can withstand the biting pressure of the molars. These crowns also have a natural appearance, although they might be slightly less translucent than porcelain.

  • Emax crowns are renowned for their excellent aesthetic qualities and durability. They are made from lithium disilicate, a high-strength ceramic material.

    These tooth crowns are especially suitable for front teeth due to their translucency and light-reflecting properties, closely resembling natural tooth enamel.

  • Ceramic crown costs can vary depending on various factors such as the location, the dentist's experience, and the type of crown material used. Here is a general comparison of the average cost per each type of crown in the UK and Turkey.


    In the UK, the average cost of dental crowns can range from £400 to £1,500 per tooth. The cost may vary depending on the material used for the crown:

    • Porcelain crowns are usually more expensive, with an average cost of £800 to £1,500 per tooth.

    • Zirconium crowns are also on the higher end of the price range, with an average cost of £900 to £1,500 per tooth.

    • Emax (Lithium Disilicate) crowns, known for their aesthetic qualities and durability, can cost around £800 to £1,200 per tooth.

    On the other hand, in Turkey, the average cost of dental crowns tends to be more affordable compared to the UK. The cost can range from 500 to 1,000 Turkish Lira (TRY) per tooth.

    • Porcelain crowns in Turkey can cost around £140 per tooth.

    • Zirconium crowns are slightly more expensive, with an average cost of £150-£240 TRY per tooth.

    • Emax (Lithium Disilicate) crowns in Turkey can cost around £220-£280 per tooth.


    It's important to note that these are average cost ranges and the actual cost may vary depending on the specific dental clinic, location, and individual circumstances.

  • Caring for your dental crown is similar to caring for your natural teeth. Here are some tips to help you maintain the health and longevity of your dental crown:

    • Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.

    • Floss daily to remove plaque and food particles from between your teeth and under the crown.

    • Avoid chewing on hard or sticky foods that can damage the crown.

    • Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings.
