Different materials such as metal, porcelain, full ceramic, full porcelain are used in crown treatment. As a result of metal crown treatment, long-lasting materials are used. Metal crowns are generally preferred for posterior teeth due to their color. Porcelain crown has natural tooth color and is preferred for anterior or posterior teeth. Full ceramic or full porcelain crown veneer, which is one of the methods that gives the best results in tooth color, is the ideal choice for front teeth.

Crown treatment process

Your dentist may refer you to this method as a result of the controls, or after consultation, crown treatment may be your choice. After the controls, the tooth or teeth to be crowned are determined and X-rays can be taken. The mold of the tooth or mouth can also be removed by the doctor.

Your dentist can make a temporary veneer until this situation, which includes the mold suitable for your tooth, is prepared. After the permanent crown preparation is prepared for you, the dentist places this crown in its place.
