What are crowns?

A dental crown is a restoration material that covers the full back, front and sides of the natural tooth. Crowns are a great affordable option to restore a tooth from fractures, cavities, discolouration and shape. As well as being a great option to repair damage and other medical issues; they can be used to enhance a patient’s smile. Crowns have an opaqueness that gives a natural appearance similar to our own enamel. Monolithic zirconia is the most popular material because of the gradual translucency effect.

What is full mouth crowns treatment?

Full mouth crowns is a smile makeover treatment that gives the patient a new designer smile. Each tooth is crowned individually or in sets depending on alignment and tooth health and condition.

Full smile makeover treatment involves crowning all available teeth including dental bridges. People consider full mouth crowns as a dental restoration treatment for a number of reasons, ultimately they aren’t happy with their current smile and what it does to their confidence. Tooth alignment issues, tooth deviation, uneven smile line, uneven gum line, missing teeth, cracked, fractured, broken and decayed teeth are issues that full mouth crowns are able to fix. A perfect smile consists of white, straight, aligned teeth with an even gum and smile line consistent to the whole jaw.

How to prepare for dental crowns treatment?

  • Before Dental Crowns – What Can I Expect Before Dental Crowns?

The doctor will assess the candidacy of the tooth and your medical history. If the tooth is damaged, or experiences consistent sensitivity, a root treatment will be required before fixing the crown. If there are any cavities, then they will be treated and filled, then crowned. If there is an abscess underneath or to the side of a tooth, extraction may be required and so the tooth is not appropriate to crown. A dental bridge or implant would then be an appropriate treatment.

  • During Dental Crowns- What Happens During Dental Crowns Treatment?

The natural tooth is prepared by the doctor using a specialised drill bur to file down the tooth to a base shape. Local anaesthesia is provided for a comfortable experience. A dental putty is used to collect an impression of the prepared teeth. The impression is then used by the laboratory technicians to start building your crowns. Patient’s will have temporary dentares fitted on the first day to protect the teeth. After a few rehearsals to ensure the right shape, colour and bite closure is perfect, the crowns are then glued in place using a specialised dental cementation glue.

  • After Dental Crowns- What Can I Expect After Dental Crowns Treatment?

The patient has finished the crowning process and can now enjoy their new smile makeover. Patients will have to unlearn habits of hiding their smile or laugh. A new confidence is born and they don’t need to have a subconscious focus on their appearance. Crowns will correct minor bit closure issues and jaw muscles will now be working differently. So not only is there a new sensation to get used to but also the crowns, glue, and teeth need time to heal and settle. For this reason, sensitivity is expected for the first week and can last up to a month.

How do they do crowns on teeth?

Teeth are prepared by the dentist using a diamond-tungsten bur, shaving the natural tooth to a base shape. More preparation may be required for broken, misaligned or misshapen teeth. An impression of the jaw is taken using a slow-harding dental putty so a crown is able to be properly shaped and sized by laboratory technicians. A temporary crown is prepared on the first day to wear while the crown is being made to protect the natural tooth. 2 to 3 rehearsals are required to make minor adjustments to ensure the crown fits comfortably within the bite closure for functionality. Shape is inspired by the surrounding teeth for the most natural aesthetic. When a patient has a full mouth crown treatment, there are multiple smile designs to choose from.

How many teeth do you put crowns on?

This is decided by the patient actually. Of course if there is any medical reason to place crowns then all medically concerned teeth should be crowned.

Or we can fit full mouth crowns for perfect bite closure and aesthetics.

How many crowns are in a full set?

Some people develop 32 teeth, some develop 24 teeth. It really depends on the patient. In terms of the all-on-4 smile makeover patients will have fixed zirconia dentures made with 12 teeth each jaw. all-on-6 patients can have 26 to 28 crowns.

When can I start to eat after Dental crown treatment?

After the preparation treatment, patients should wait at least 30 minutes to an hour before eating. After the crowns have been cemented in place using specialised dental glue, the patient should wait at least 2 hours before eating. It’s important to allow the glue to harden and bond between the tooth and crown. Eating before the recommended time can eventually lead to crowns falling out during the week or months later. In this case, we would need to readminister the cementation process. The problem about this is that there could be gaps between the glue and the tooth in the meantime which bacteria can enter and cause problems.

Additionally, patients should start with a soft food diet gradually introducing harder foods over the next month as they begin to adapt to the new sensation of crowns. Foods such as apples and nuts should be consumed after a month with caution.

Dental Crowns Benefits

The benefits of having dental crowns is being able to choose from a natural look or a designer style. Your choice of long lasting stain-resistant colour for a confident smile. Restoring your teeth also reduces hot and cold sensitivity. And because the material is non-porous like our natural enamel, the crown doesn’t house bacteria as much as our natural teeth. Crowns close unsightly gaps reducing the space for food particles and bacteria to get lodged in.

Dental Crowns Risks

The risks of having dental crowns is largely impacted by tooth condition before treatment, too much tooth preparation and improper fitting. There are a few things that people can do to mitigate these risks. Having an in-depth intraoral and x-ray examination in consultation with a Doctor will identify higher-risk teeth that may require minor treatments or repairs before crown preparation. These could include cavity fillings, root treatments and root posts. The x-ray will reveal any abscesses of concern that may have a long-term effect on pain and sensitivity. These must first be removed.

Selecting a reputable clinic with experienced doctors that know the precise amount of filing required on each tooth. And a doctor that prioritises the functionality of the bite, not just the look. The upper jaw and the lower jaw need to fit together in synchronicity just like a jigsaw puzzle. If it doesn’t, then it will lead to uneven bite forces resulting in cracks and fractures.

What are different types of crowns?

Modern crowns have a selection of 3 different materials. Metal-based porcelain (PFM), monolithic zirconia, and Emax ceramic glass. Each has their own attributes and cost effectiveness.

ZIRCONIA CROWNS

Zirconia crowns are CAD/CAM designed from Zirconia blocks imported directly from Germany. The material started being adopted into dentistry in 2010 for its extreme durability, biocompatibility and aesthetic appearance. Zirconia crowns are a very popular restoration and aesthetic option for patients wishing for a natural or designer smile. Teeth are prepared by 1mm to a base shape and a zirconia crown is placed on top to cover the visible surface of the tooth. Crowns are a great option to restore teeth from damage like cracks, fractures, discolouration, cavities, previous amalgam fillings, previous gold crowns, and even minor misalignment issues.

How much does a zirconia crown cost in Turkey?

Zirconia Crowns vary in price depending on location in Turkey, reputation of the clinic, and the quality of zirconia material used. Istanbul has dental clinics available but this major city has developed a reputation for other medical tourism such as hair transplants and breast augmentation. Antalya City is at the heart of dental tourism for reputable clinics. There are other cities where people could find clinics with regionally cheaper prices. But when you decide to choose quality, it pays to choose a clinic with a reputation. So how can you know if a clinic has a good reputation? Google reviews with over a 4.7 star rating are considered reputable, but be sure the clinic has been in business for a number of years.

A Clinic offering a 2+ year guarantee of their crowns and feeling as though you can trust that if anything happens to them, the clinic will take care of you. Have you heard about this clinic through friends or family? Word of mouth is still the most reliable source of information. You can ask them about their experience. In fact, you can visit our youtube channel for real patient interviews about their experience with Dentares.

How much are zirconia crowns in Turkey?

Zirconia crowns are a very popular dental restoration for dental tourism in Antalya. The important thing to note is that there are a few things that vary the zirconia crown price in Turkey. Consider the reputation of the clinic and the quality of the zirconia they use. Always check a clinic’s google reviews page, and follow them on social media to see if you feel a sense of professionalism and identity. Ask the clinic if they have a laboratory.

Dental clinics and their laboratories are legally required to be kept separate. Clinics that often deliver poor quality crowns tend to outsource crown manufacturing which can be inconsistent and prone to breaking. These labs will use Turkish or Chinese zirconia which is lower quality.

Dentares owns a private laboratory that crafts each zirconia crown from monolithic zirconia blocks imported from Germany by our supplier, Dental Direkt. German zirconia is well known for its quality resulting in happier, longer-lasting smiles. For this reason, quality comes at a higher than market price. As all patients have unique dental needs, prices vary. If you want to get an online consultation and a quoted treatment plan, please get in touch with us today.

How long do crowns from Turkey last?

Depending on the material used, dental crowns have an expected lifetime of 8 to 15 years. Dentares imports from Germany, the highest grade zirconia oxide material to use in creating our dental crowns.

How long will a zirconia crown last?

Zirconia as a dental crown material was brought into dentistry in 2010. So there is not yet enough long term data to suggest that they currently last longer than 10-12 years. Patients may consider changing their zirconia crowns after 10-15 years

What are the advantages of zirconia crowns?

There are many advantages to having zirconia crowns in turkey. Zirconia is a cost effective, durable material that protects the natural tooth for at least a decade. The colour and shape is long-lasting making this restoration material a favourite of patients and dentists alike. A full list of advantages are as follows:

  • CAD (Computer-aided design) gives the laboratory the ability for accurate and beautiful design
  • Zirconia has greater hot and cold sensitivity resistance than traditional porcelain or emax crowns
  • Zirconia is dense and strong material so crowns can be made thinner. This means less teeth preparation is required compared to other materials.
  • Chipping and fractures are very uncommon if quality zirconia is used. Beware of clinics that use Turkish or Chinese zirconia. These are prone to chipping and fractures. That’s why we only used quality zirconia imported from Germany.
  • Zirconia is metal-free and so allergen-free
  • Zirconia has a high biocompatibility with soft oral tissue.
  • Zirconia is suitable for patients with bruxism in combination with masseter botox control to protect the crowns and prevent future oral complications.
  • Colour grading is simple to accurately match neighbouring teeth
  • Soft tissue like gum have a better biocompatibility than PFM crowns which reduces the risk of gum receding from crowns, previously exposing the natural tooth or the metal base of PFM.

What are the disadvantages of zirconia crowns?

The list of zirconia crowns is quite low because of the cost effectiveness and modern technology continues to innovate and improve every year. The main disadvantage to zirconia as a material has to be the translucency. However, as the material is incredibly strong, only a thin amount is required, increasing translucency. Disadvantages are further explained below.

  • Zirconia, although it has a low to medium translucency, emax has much better translucency for natural smile results.
  • When cheap materials are used to make crowns, chipping and fractures can be common within the first year after treatment.
  • Although colour match can be simple, due to the difference in translucency of zirconia vs natural tooth enamel. Zirconia can very slightly be distinguished between natural teeth. Emax are a better option in this case
  • Zirconia is more expensive than the ceramic or PFM dental crown materials.

Which is better: zirconia or porcelain crown?

Aesthetically, zirconia is better in the long term because after about 2 years, greying of the porcelain crown can occur. The titanium metal-base influences the grey undertone of the crown because of the higher translucency of porcelain. Zirconia doesn’t have this greying issue because it is metal-free. The colour remains stain resistant and colour-lasting.

Which is better: zirconia or emax crown?

Zirconia has key functional and aesthetic differences so it depends on the goal the patient wishes to achieve. Zirconia has many benefits and can be very natural looking. The strength of zirconia is unmatched by other materials and so durable and longer-lasting. Emax is a ceramic-glass, so it doesn’t have the durability of zirconia. However, Emax has the closest translucency to our natural enamel. Emax is unrivalled when it comes to designing the most aesthetic and natural looking smile.

What are the differences between Zİrconia Crowns and Emax Crowns?

Zirconia is a material made from zirconium oxide whereas Emax is Lithium Disilicate ceramic or ceramic-glass. Patients often come to Dentares hoping to achieve a healthy white smile they can be proud of. There are some limitations to emax that would make zirconia a more appropriate solution. For example, dental bridges cannot be made of emax. It would be much more wise to use a strong material like zirconia to cover missing areas.

Zirconia can be placed on every tooth, anterior and posterior (front and back). Unfortunately the Emax material does not have comparable compressive strength (bite force) to the zirconia and should only be placed on the front teeth. When eating, we place the most force on grinding and chewing our foods with our posterior teeth.

Generally speaking, Zirconia can be thought to have the best medical attributes of crown materials with great aesthetic function. Emax can be considered for those who wish to beautify their smile while fixing small oral health concerns and misalignment issues. Zirconia or emax crowns’ suitability varies patient to patient, if you want to get an online consultation and a treatment plan, please get in touch with us.

EMAX CROWNS

Emax dental crowns are the very best in aesthetic design in modern dentistry. Premium lithium disilicate ceramic or ceramic glass is CAD/CAM crafted in our very own laboratory. Emax is a premium material because of the translucency that best imitates natural tooth enamel. An Emax crown is indistinguishable from your normal teeth. Their strength is better than porcelain giving a lifetime of around 10 years. There’s no metal alloys so emax is allergen-free and non-corrosive. Emax is a durable material but is best applied to front incisor teeth for maximum aesthetic results.

Emax crowns only prepare up to 1mm of the natural tooth to a base shape and the CAD/CAM design software prepares the perfect shape and fit. Patients can easily request certain smile designs with the doctor for their dream smile.

How much are EMAX crowns in Turkey?

Emax material offers the most aesthetic option and for this reason is the most expensive of all material crown types. When considering where to have emax crowns treatments, consider the doctor’s artistic skills and experience with emax material. The reputation of the doctor is important if you want the best quality emax and best quality smile.

Emax crowns are designed by the doctor using CAD/CAM computer technology so the design is symmetrical, and all edges are smoothed and aesthetic. An even smile line (the imaginary line drawn to the ends of the teeth) is achieved for a straight white smile. Even facial features like the curvature and fullness of your lips, nose and chin are taken into account to find the right curvature to the top and bottom of crowns to match your face. Because the doctor takes into account all this data of facial features, even gum and skin colour to enhance the shape, colour and style of your designer smile is why Emax crowns attract an expensive price tag.

How much does an Emax crown cost in Turkey?

Emax crowns are the best restoration option in aesthetic dentistry for patients with minor cracks. breaks, bite issues and discolouration. The translucency highlights the natural colouration of the tooth but can also be enhanced with bleach white colour. This is a great option for patients trying to obtain whiter teeth. Tourists from around the globe visit Antalya for the well-known dental tourism. Prices in Turkey can be exceptionally cheaper than western Europe, USA and UK. Dentares use the same quality materials as these countries but due to economic factors, Turkey is able to provide these services much cheaper.

The quality of crowns can be greatly affected by the emax materials used. Some clinics in Turkey will use Chinese-made emax blocks which are low quality. So it’s important to use a reputable clinic that uses a private laboratory with quality emax materials.

Dentares uses only the highest quality emax materials to design happier and longer-lasting smiles. We are able to control the quality and consistency of emax crowns. Which is why quality comes at a high market price. Patients will always be treated with a personalised approach. If you want to get an online consultation and a quoted treatment plan, please get in touch with us today.

How long will an Emax crown last?

Provided that patients look after their emax dental restorations, crowns can last 10 years or even more. There are a few things that patients can do to keep their emax crowns healthy, strong and protected. Brush away from the gum line using a soft-bristled brush, brush 3 times a day, floss regularly in a week and use a non-alcoholic mouthwash. Visit your local dental hygienist for a deep clean twice a year. Avoid eating hard foods like seeds, nuts, popcorn, ice and candies.

Dentares will ensure a perfect bite closure, everytime. But people seeking emax crown treatment in a non-reputable clinic should be aware and work with the dentist to ensure you are happy with the bite closure before the final fitting. Having an uneven or misaligned bite can result in biting and chewing in uncomfortable ways that may lead to chipping and fracturing your crowns.

If you have bruxism (a stress condition causing teeth grinding) or start to develop bruxism. It’s best to see your dentist right away for a masseter botox injection. Bruxism strengthens our jaw muscles and over time we can wear down, chip, fracture or break our emax crowns. Masseter botox injection works immediately to relax this jaw muscle responsible for bruxism, for up to a year. You can work and sleep peacefully knowing that you’re protecting your crowns. It is recommended to either resolve the issue causing constant stress or find a positive outlet to release this tension.

What are the advantages of Emax crowns?

The best advantage that emax crowns have is the enamel-like translucency. Emax works well with your gums and teeth to give you a radiant, confident smile. The non-porous, smooth surface of the emax doesn’t allow for bacteria, food particles and staining foods and beverages to affect colouration. Zirconia is a denser material and would reflect light. Emax on the other hand absorbs light and so it’s possible to see through the material when held up in front of sunshine or lights.

With the combination of translucency and CAD/CAM technology, the emax dental crown is designed to look like a natural tooth. In restoration work of any kind, it’s so important to restore goods to their original, natural beauty. And that’s exactly what Dentares strives to do.

The concern with using PFM is the titanium alloy unfortunately giving a grey line to the gums underneath. Additionally when the porcelain gets older, greying behind the crown begins to appear. Because Emax is a non-metal alloy material, crowns will not experience this issue.

While PFM may cause metal allergies, emax is a ceramic glass and will not cause any metal allergy reactions.

The ceramic glass is quite durable making it easier to refine and polish during the fitting and rehearsal stages of the treatment without cracking or breaking.

Once the technician has prepared the crown design, with collaboration of the patient; the CAD/CAM milling process is reasonably fast on monolithic emax blocks. Patients can expect results for the laboratory within 24 hours.

The durability of this product allows for minimal tooth preparation. Preserving more of your tooth than PFM crown preparation would require. It’s important to preserve as much natural tooth as possible for stability and strength.

Emax also has the capacity to be produced in other dental restorations such as: veneers, laminate veneers and lumineers.

Less plaque build will occur due to the smooth, non-porous surface and gum junction of the crown. This biocompatibility of soft and bone tissues, reduces bad breath and less risk for other dental hygiene problems.

Modern dental glue is resistant to acids in our saliva so the chance of crowns falling out is extremely rare.

The aesthetic features are second-to-none and protected by abrasion resistance.

What are the disadvantages of Emax crowns?

Compared to PFM, other ceramic materials and even zirconia, Emax is, with good reason, the most expensive dental restoration material. However durable, emax cannot support whole bridges like zirconia can. Emax can break if we don’t look after them and expose them to abrasive objects, or treating them to bad habits like nail biting or chewing on pens, or eating an apple. Since emax is not recommended for aesthetic purposes, the anterior teeth benefit much more from emax than posterior teeth would. Emax is not always suitable for all patients.

Who is not suitable/ eligible for Emax Crowns?

The least suitable dental issues to fix using emax dental crowns are patients that present these varying bite issues: a deep bite, class 3 bite, crossbite, and straight bite (when bottom and top teeth meet at the tip of the teeth). With these bite issues, the crowns are likely to clash resulting in a high risk of breakages and fractures.

Patients that present with damaged teeth include: too many fillings or decay on front teeth, a dead tooth, and root treated tooth. Having these types of damaged teeth are not fixable by emax because the translucency will not hide the colour differences on the natural tooth. If the patient took tetracycline medications as a child, emax will also not fix these colour disparages.

Patients with missing teeth are also not suitable because emax cannot be used in dental bridge treatments.

Patients may seek orthodontic treatments to fix bite issues which could dramatically change their candidacy for emax crowns. Dentares has an accomplished orthodontist to seek advice and treatment with to fix your bite issues. For more information, head to our orthodontics page

Who is suitable for Emax Crowns?

Patients that present with open bite and class 1 & 2 bite are suitable for emax crowns and have a lower risk of breakages and fractures compared to other bite issues presented above. That is the deep bite, class 3 bite, crossbite, and straight bite. Additionally, all bite issues may be fixed with orthodontic treatment before patients wish to have emax crowns.

Emax is a very good option for patients with diastema (abnormally larger gaps between teeth), patients who are unable to improve the whiteness of their natural teeth. Slight teeth alignment deviation issues, uneven smile line, the resizing of small lateral incisors and fractured or cracked teeth.
