What is a tooth crown?

Crowns are personalized caps that are placed over your teeth. Their purpose is to reconstruct your tooth by restoring its shape and size. It will also strengthen and improve performance. These caps are placed perfectly on your teeth and cemented down, enveloping them for complete protection. Keep reading to determine whether you are a good candidate for this procedure.

Dentists will usually recommend crowns for the following scenarios:

  1. Cracked, brittle, or fragile teeth: A crown will be used to save cracked or fragile teeth. In addition, it will alleviate any pain and provide extra strength for your tooth.
  2. Huge cavities that can’t be filled: Suppose you have a big cavity that can’t be filled. In that case, a cap will be placed around that tooth to protect and prevent further deterioration.
  3. Extra protection after a root canal: A tooth infection can lead to a root canal; once the procedure is done, a dentist will place the cap over your tooth to restore its strength.
  4. Coverings for dental implants: Dental implants replace the root of the missing tooth. The cap is an artificial tooth the dentist will insert into the teeth implants. This is permanent and helps with chewing, alignment, and self-confidence.
  5. Cosmetic dentistry, e.g., tooth discoloration or misshapen teeth: Porcelain or ceramic crowns can improve the appearance of damaged or stained teeth. Fillings that are easily seen can be improved by covering them with a crown.

While these customized caps can treat various issues, it is vital to know all the facts before proceeding.

What are they made of?

There are many different kinds of materials used to make dental caps, which include:

  1. Porcelain
  2. Ceramic
  3. Zirconia
  4. Metal
  5. Composite Resin
  6. A mix of all these materials

One example is a porcelain crown attached to metal instead of an all-porcelain option. Again, it is essential to communicate with your dentist to ensure comfort with your selection when going through these options.

Your dentist would have to consider the following scenarios:

  • The location of the tooth
  • If the tooth is visible when smiling
  • The position of the gum tissue
  • What is the tooth’s function is
  • How much of the original tooth is intact
  • The coloration of the surrounding teeth

Types of Teeth Crowns

1. Temporary

Temporary caps are placed in your mouth for a short time while you wait for the permanent ones to be made. Then, they are glued over your teeth with easily removable adhesive to make the removal quick and painless.

The dentist will take out the temporary crown once your permanent crown is ready, which will occur during your second appointment.

2. One-Day Crown

It is possible to have the crown fitted in one appointment. It is designed from a ceramic block and installed in the office.

3. Onlay or ¾ Caps

Sometimes, your whole tooth does not need to be covered; your dentist will inform you if you only need an inlay or a ¾ cap.

What is the Cost?

According to the “Natural Smiles” website, dental crowns cost £400 and £1,200, while in the USA, the price ranges from $1,000 to $3,500. The price of one tooth crown in Turkey ranges from $175 to $250, depending on the specific person. It will also depend on your dentist and their prices. Some insurance policies will cover the procedure in whole or just a certain amount.

Suppose your dental insurance does not cover the procedure. In that case, there are third-party financers that you can contact to create a payment plan.

Here’s the dental crown procedure explained:

  • First Appointment: Anesthesia is applied, and the tooth is reshaped, often by shaving it down for the crown’s secure fit.
  • Impression: A flexible tray is used to create an impression of the tooth, either traditionally or digitally, for efficiency.
  • Color Matching: The color of the crown is matched to your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless blend.
  • Lab Work: The impression is sent to the lab where the crown is custom-made, usually ready in 2 weeks.
  • Second Appointment: Your dentist numbs the area again, removes the temporary cap, and inserts the permanent crown.
  • Adjustments: The dentist may make several adjustments to ensure the crown blends perfectly.
  • Cementing: The crown is attached with dental cement, and you bite down on gauze to secure it.
  • Finishing Touch: Any excess cement is removed, leaving your new crown in place.

What are the Risks?

Chipped teeth crowns

While dental crowns can be beneficial and solve many problems, some complications can arise:

  1. Sensitive teeth: You can experience discomfort when consuming anything too hot or cold after getting a crown fitted; however, the fit could be off if you feel any pressure when biting down, and you will need to speak to your dentist.
  2. Crowns can Chip: All-porcelain crowns are more susceptible to chipping but can be repaired by a dentist.
  3. Loose or detached crown: Loose or detached caps occurred when the dental cement used was insufficient
  4. Allergic reaction: While this does not happen often, some people react to the metal used in particular crowns
  5. Gum disease: Gum disease or gingivitis can develop after having a crown placed; if you start to experience pain, bleeding, or discomfort in your gums, seek help as soon as possible.


You will pay a pretty penny for this procedure, so you must ensure you take proper care of your crown. Here are some guidelines you should follow:

  • You must brush your teeth twice daily and use sensitive toothpaste if you feel discomfort when ingesting hot or cold foods/beverages.
  • Flossing is critical, and you should ensure you do it daily.
  • There are no hard foods like nuts, candy, ice, raw carrots, and popcorn. However, these foods can crack your crown.
  • If you are a toothgrinder or clincher, you should wear a nightguard when sleeping to protect your crown and surrounding teeth.

Care for Temporary Crowns

Caring for your temporary crown is the same as caring for the permanent one. The only difference is that you must be more gentle when brushing and use caution while flossing to avoid dislodging it.

Are There Any Alternatives to Teeth Crowns?

Porcelain Onlay

Crowns can be expensive, but they are the most effective way to strengthen and protect your teeth. However, there are alternative options:

  1. Porcelain Onlay: This is the most popular alternative to crowns. It is a less evasive approach where more of the original tooth is preserved. The porcelain is sealed to your enamel to avoid any fracturing. Unfortunately, this procedure is time-consuming and requires many experiences, so few dentists offer this service.
  2. Phasing Treatment: Sometimes, people cannot afford crowns. Discuss this with your dentist, and you can get a filling in the meantime.
  3. Provisional Crowns: These are temporary crowns. They can last up to 3-6 months. It is a great option to give you time to get your affairs in order.
