Dental porcelain crowns are sculpted to closely replicate the look of natural tooth enamel and replace the entire external portion of the tooth down to the gum level. Crowns are not simply limited to replacing the original tooth but can be used as dental bridges for a single or multiple missing teeth, to support large fillings or to protect weak teeth from fracturing.
To fit a porcelain crown, one to two millimeter all around the tooth, as well as the top is removed, while the remaining natural tooth structure is preserved. With the proper care porcelain crowns will last long into the future as they have a very strong structure and look and feel like your own tooth.
Porcelain crowns can be used for the restoration of a single tooth as well as a dental bridge in case of a missing tooth or teeth.
Unlike veneers, porcelain crowns cover all surfaces of the tooth and are used only when the tooth is fractured or very broken down. The porcelain used is the same as that used for veneers so they are strong and also offer an aesthetic natural look. Porcelain Crowns are made to improve your overall smile or to blend in with your own teeth.
Porcelain Crowns are also used to support a large filling when there isn't enough of the tooth remaining, attach a bridge, protect weak teeth from fracturing, restore fractured teeth, or cover badly shaped or discolored teeth. Sometimes an underlying metal shell is used under the porcelain if additional strength is needed.
General Definition: A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant and is typically bonded to the tooth using dental cement. Crowns can be made from many materials, which are usually fabricated using out-of-mouth methods. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. Full-porcelain (ceramic) dental materials include porcelain, ceramic or glasslike fillings and crowns (a.k.a jacket crown, as a metal free option).
Right after your new crown is cemented, you may experience some sensitivity to cold. This is normal because the tooth and the surrounding area might be slightly irritated during the procedure. You might also feel that your bite is off in the first couple of days. If the “off” feeling still persists after that, it might require a slight adjustment.
It is very important that you maintain excellent oral hygiene with your new crown or bridge. A crowned tooth might give you the wrong impression that it won’t decay like your natural teeth, but it is still susceptible to decay near the gumline. You should continue to brush and floss as normal.
Porcelain crowns are strong and durable but they still have potential to fracture the same as a natural tooth. Avoid doing anything with a crown or bridge that could damage a natural tooth. Do not chew ice as extreme temperature change increases the fracture of crowns and natural teeth.
I am so happy with the end result
I am so happy with the end result. I was so nervous even though i had done alot of research into mydental treatment and was really happy with what i read up about tourmedical and all the previous patients reviews. From the minute i walked in the door, i felt id make the right decision, the clinic is beautiful, like walking into a spa, the staff who greeted me were so friendly and welcoming.Then i met the Cosmetic dentist who is really nice and explained everything to me, she took an xray of my teeth to ensure they were ok to have treatment and then we agreed and the processbegan. The whole experience was pain free and my treatment started on Tuesday and finished on Saturday with only short visits and one day off in the week. Im amazed at my new look and nearly find it hard to believe that i now have a beautiful natural smile, with no crooked teeth. I can hightly recommend Tourmedical, the clinic the treatment and the service is A1. All my needs were taken care off.
The atmosphere in the clinic was amazing
I came to Turkey with my son for his dental treatment as he was starting college and i knew his teeth were effecting his confidence. We both had a consultation on the 1st day and i was thrilled to think that we both could have our teeth done, for a fraction of the price, it would cost us at home in dublin. I was very nervous but the dentist had a really calming and re-assuring effect on me, i also had my treatment, i had 12 crowns and also needed root canal treatment. The whole procedure was virtually pain free. The atmosphere in the clinic was amazing and everyone was so helpful. We were collected
The Dentist is a perfectionist
Thank you very much, I am so happy with my treatment, I could not fault a thing, I am home now and am so proud that I can smile again. Everyone was so helpful and friendly, the dentist is a perfectionist,really from start to finish it was an excellent experience.
I can't stop smiling
I am now back in the UK after completing my treatment and am so happy. There is a new me!! I cant stop smiling. The treatment was perfect from beginning to end. I feel im starting my life over again
The treatment was 1st class
I did alot of research on the internet and when i found tourmedical, I knew after my 1st point of contact, it was the place to go for me. I was very nervous when i was waiting for them to collect me from the hotel, but once i was met by their representative, i felt more at ease, they were so friendly and re-assuring. The treatment was 1st class and I am really happy with the results, the whole procedure was much better than i expected. The dentist was very caring and friendly as were all the assistants. The clinic is very modern and attractive. It is extremely clean and the atmosphere very relaxed. The pick up service was brillant, always on time and they were very friendly. Some of my family have had treatment also and more plan to come on holidays also next year.
