If your smile does not look the way you would like it to be and also requires restoration. If your teeth are already badly damaged, we offer you the best way to keep them healthy with a beautiful aesthetic appearance: dental crown treatment. Today, crowns are made from high-quality materials that provide durability and an attractive appearance that is 100% the same as your teeth.
Crowns are non-removable appliances in the shape of prostheses made especially in the laboratory, which cover the entire visible part of the teeth (unlike fillings or veneers) and allow them to be preserved both aesthetically and functionally.

Types of dental crowns
Experts distinguish between permanent and temporary crowns. Permanent crowns are made in a special laboratory, while temporary crowns can be made with the dentist during the consultation.
Depending on the material used for its manufacture, dental crowns can be:
When do you need to proceed with the placement of dental crowns?
Dental crowns are indicated for the following situations:
- To protect a fragile tooth from a fracture.
- For the restoration of a severely damaged tooth (more than 50%), when the root has not lost the ability to perform its functions;
- For the fabrication of a dental bridge in the absence of teeth.
- To hide teeth with abnormal shape or colour.
- To cover a dental implant
- To improve the aesthetic appearance of the anterior teeth.
Advantages of dental crowns.
- Dental restoration from an aesthetic and functional point of view
This is the most important advantage of dental crowns. After the final fixation of the crowns, the tooth will be able to participate in the chewing process, as well as before destruction. The aesthetic result will depend on the material with which the crown is made.
- Multiple sessions with the dentist are required
These are the prosthetic procedures that take the least time to complete. Depending on the type of crown chosen, the duration of the crown placement on the tooth can vary from 2 to 4 sessions.
- You will quickly get used to dental crowns
Getting used to dental crowns usually takes several days.
Disadvantages of dental crowns.
- Tooth rejuvenation is required
If the procedure is performed on natural teeth, then it is necessary to polish them to fit the crowns. This process leads to the loss of a large amount of healthy dental tissue and sometimes even the devitalization of the teeth.
- Higher cost
Dental crowns (especially the ceramic ones) have a much higher cost compared to classic fillings. This leads to the fact that many patients mistakenly choose a filling, even if the dentist points to a dental crown.
