Dental crowns, much like implants, have a very heavy price tag at pretty much every Western civilization. In Turkey, we produce the same (if not better) quality for a much more reasonable, affordable price tag. This is due to the currency differences and the Turkeys well developed dentistry. Dental crowns can range from 100 euros per unit to 205 euros per unit. The differences in costs depends on the quality,quantity,dentists reputation and the name of the brand.
The average lifespan of dental crowns are about 12 to 15 years. However, that number can go up or down depending on your level of care. Watch what you eat, use mouth guard if you are into contact sports, don’t bite hard stuff and have a good oral hygiene. All of this helps you to put years to crowns.
You will be under local anesthesia. There will be no pain during or after the procedure. However, a slight discomfort for that day is expected. But all in all, crowns are not painful at all.
Cavities can happen anywhere in your mouth. Crowns are no exception. When this happens, you need to address this immediately. Cavities can become a huge problem in the long run and that’s why you need to take care of them to prevent any tooth loss. Consult with your dentist when this happens.
Bacteria can get under a crown and cause nerve pain. If you have a throbbing tooth pain, infection is the cause of that. that’s why oral hygiene is very important. An infection under a crown can make that crown pretty much useless.
A crown can become loose and fall off. This can happen for several reasons. The crown can be at the low end of spectrum in terms of quality, you might bite a very hard food or object, you might get hit in the mouth or there might be underlying problems at the teeth core. All of these factors can result in a failed crown treatment. But we use the best quality in our crowns and therefore you can only expect perfection from us.
An average lifespan of a zirconium crown is about 12 to 15 years. But as we said before, it all depends on how you take care of them and the external factors. If all things are secured, expect to use them for a good part of your life.
Zirconia crowns are high quality crowns that possess %100 biocompatibility. They have the perfect combination of durability and good looks. Because of that, their prices are a bit higher. A single unit of zirconia crown is about 180 euros.
Zirconia crowns, as the name suggests, are made from zirconium. This is an non-reactive metal with very strong properties. Zirconium is very durable and is very translucent. It also,as far as attributes go, is very close to titanium. This makes it easier to achieve that white color that we all want.
It is very hard to remove zirconia crowns simply for the fact that they bond very well with human body. Only a dentist can remove these crowns with the right tools.
Zirconia crowns hardly ever crack thanks to their durability. But, there are times where a crack or chip may happen because of a very hard hit to the crown area. In this instance, zirconia crowns can be fully repaired with dental tools at the hands of your dentist.

A dental crown should feel and look natural. At first, there might be some weird feeling at the tooth that underwent the crown treatment. But in time, that feeling will go away and you will feel more natural in that tooth day by day.
There are couple of do’s and don’ts for a crowned tooth. You need to pay attention to your oral hygiene; use a floss or antibacterial mouth wash to improve it. You need to eat a balanced diet that has lots of green in it. But you also need to cut down the sugar, avoid hard and chewy foods. don’t use your teeth as a weapon or a can opener.

Yes you do. But this is only a part of the treatment plan. Those impressions help you achieve a natural bite that doesn’t change your typical biting angle. They also helps dentists to find your teeth size and shape. This way, your crown can be a perfect match.
They adjust the crowns based on your tooth size and shape. There are times where a crown might be too big and because of that, there might be some biting problems. When this happens, dentists change the shape of the crown by making it smaller. If a patient is not happy with the crowns size, they should tell this to their dentist immediately. With that, correct adjustments can be made instantly. We listen to our patients and do the changes according to their taste. In a way, you are doing your own crowns with the help of our dentists.
After the procedure, we advise our patients to wait for 1 or 2 hours to eat. After that period, avoid very hot or cold drinks and avoid hard-chewy foods. After 2 hours, you can eat majority of the foods that you want.
