What is the dental crown procedure?
In our center, your dental veneers are performed in 2 or 3 sessions. The process is as follows:
In your first examination, your panoramic x-ray and photographs are taken. With X-ray analysis, it is determined whether the teeth to be veneered need filling, root canal treatment and deep cleaning. If these additional treatments are needed, they are completed first. The next step of the procedure is the veneer preparation. Your natural tooth is prepared under local anesthesia to sit on the veneer. Although it is a sensitive procedure, it is not a painful and invasive procedure. The next step is taking an impression of your teeth. Your temporary crowns are put on your teeth to protect them until your next visit. You have to be careful what you eat for a few days.
At your second visit, the temporary veneer is removed. Your new dental veneer is adjusted until your bite is perfect. Once you and your dentist are satisfied, the veneers cemented in place. The whole process takes 5-6 days.
Which is the best dental crown material?

When choosing dental crown material, it is necessary to consider in which region it will be used. Recently, zirconium crowns and e-max crowns have become popular with their superior properties.
- Zirconia Crown
Zirconia-based restorations are frequently applied for anterior and posterior crowns and bridges. Zirconia is a radio-opaque material that does not transmit light, unlike natural teeth. Besides, it has high mechanical strength. For these reasons, they are used in posterior teeth where chewing pressure is important and there is no aesthetic requirement.
- Monolithic Zirconia Crown
Monolithic zirconia crown is produced from zirconia blocks with CAD/CAM technology. It is resistant to breakage and crack formation. but its aesthetic performance is low because it has no light transmittance.
- Layered Zirconia Crown
These crowns are highly aesthetic and have the ability to be used on all types of restorations. They consist of a zirconia substructure and are veneered with porcelain. The strength and accuracy of the substructure cannot be questioned as they are designed and milled on state of the art CAD/CAM systems.For all the benefits of zirconia this restoration is very flexible and offers alternatives for full mouth restorations, crowns, bridges for both anterior and posterior regions of the mouth.
- Emax Crown
They are produced by strengthening the ceramic material used in dental treatments with special methods. With the strengthening process, it has become a material that can withstand wear for a long time. Thanks to its high light transmittance feature, it creates a very natural appearance in coating processes. This natural appearance is especially preferred in procedures where color and form changes are planned in the anterior teeth. Thanks to its sufficient durability, empress veneer treatments can be applied to back teeth and single tooth veneers. However, in treatments where the bite pressure is higher on the prosthesis, such as a dental bridge, it would be more appropriate to apply zirconium dental crown treatments to provide ideal durability.
