What is a dental crown?

The crown is actually a tooth-shaped and colored cover that is placed on the stump of your own tooth. We usually recommend the use of a dental crown if the surface of the original tooth is weakened or damaged due to caries or accidents, so it does not perform its function properly, either aesthetically or functionally. In this case, the tooth is filed down further to protect it, and a crown that matches the other teeth is glued to it, resulting in a perfect tooth from the outside.

When may a crown be needed?

  • In case of severely tooth decay.
  • If the tooth is so weakened as a result of root canal treatment or caries that there is a risk of it cracking or breaking.
  • To restore a broken or severely worn tooth.
  • If a large amount of dental filling is required that there is not enough left of the original dental crown to retain the filling.
  • When restoring irregularly shaped, discolored teeth.
  • As part of other denture solutions, bridges, implants.
  • Aesthetic statisfaction.

Steps for making a crown

  1. The dentist applies local anesthesia around the teeth.
  2. This is followed by filing the teeth to the proper shape.
  3. After filing, the dentist takes an impression of the surrounding teeth.
  4. A temporary plastic crown is placed on the tooth until the final crown is ready.
  5. Within a few days the permanent crown is made by the dental technician, based on the previously made impression.
  6. The dentist fits the permanent crown to the polished tooth with a special dental
    adhesive cement.
E.Max Crowns

Full Ceramic Crown – E.Max Crown

We talk about a crown when the prosthesis completely covers the tooth or the implant. Thanks to the continuous development of technology, one of the most  modern crown types is the completely metal-free, all-ceramic crown, also known as the E-Max crown. This name is the brand name for the ceramic base material of the crown.

What are the benefits of a full ceramic crown?

  • Greatest advantage is that it gives a perfectly aesthetic and natural-looking result.
  • The full ceramic crown and full ceramic veneer look great together in the mouth. Because their material is the same, they look like perfectly identical teeth.
  • As it does not contain metal, the joint is not visible even when the gums retract. Its material is the same color as the tooth itself, or tooth stump.
  • The perfectly realistic look is given by the optical properties of the ceramic, as it is as light-transmitting as a real tooth. Its color does not change, darkens or stains even after a long time.

What are the disadvantages?

  • For highly discolored teeth, or for teeth with a metallic post structure, we recommend the zircon crown, as the dark interior may be translucent and thanks to ıts opaque property patıents cannot choose too White Colour.

Strong and durable enough?

  • The condition of the patient’s teeth should always be assessed in advance, their bite should be checked, and the pressure on the teeth should also be examined. These are primary considerations in determining the material of the E-max crown.
  • For patients with stronger bites or grinding of teeth at night, a cermet or zircon crown is recommended. This is not to say that a full ceramic crown is not strong enough. E-Max crowns have a breaking strength of 1000 MPa (megapascals) while the average bite pressure on the teeth is 35-45 MPa.

What is the difference between Zirconium and Porcelain Crowns?

zirconium crowns
  • Zirconium offers superior strength and durability for dental crowns.
  • It is at least three times stronger than porcelain or PFM restorations.
  • Unlike porcelain, zirconia can withstand wear and tear without chipping, so zirconia restorations tolerate the forces of mastication and bruxism.

How long do Zirconium Crowns last?

Zirconia crowns are incredibly strong and resistant to fracture. With proper oral care and regular visits to the dentist, zirconia crowns can easily last 15 to 20 years. Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns are a popular type of crown that have a base layer of metal covered with a porcelain overlay.

Which is the more natural looking Crown?

Zirconia, like porcelain, produces a better, more natural cosmetic result. Still, it is not as natural looking as porcelain but is a much better option than gold for front teeth. It is also much stronger than porcelain so it is less likely to be damaged which can be cheaper in the long run.
