Crowns in Istanbul

Compare 9 clinics

Dental crowns are one of the most popular dental restoration choices in the world today – the crown itself can be used to encircle or cap a natural tooth of the patient or a dental implant. This technique is usually used when a tooth has a very large cavity that threatens to increase in size and ultimately render the tooth unusable.

There are 4 main types of dental crowns with 2 sub-types of dental crowns, according to the materials used:

● Gold dental crowns
● Porcelain crowns
● Porcelain fused to gold crowns
● Zirconia crowns
● Porcelain fused to zirconia crowns
● Composite crowns

Porcelain dental crowns and zirconia dental crowns seem to be the most popular material choice, due to the material’s durability and relatively low maintenance needs.

Crowns Candidates

Crowns are recommended for individuals with large cavities or teeth that require root canal treatment.

Am I Suitable for Crowns?

Some patients have teeth that are too decayed for a dental crown – a dental implant is needed first, before the crown can be applied. Patients without enough bone tissue in the region may also require a dental bone graft before applying a dental implant.

Preparing for Crowns

It’s a good idea to have a dental X ray before going overseas for dental crowns. Patients can request pictures of dental crowns from clinics before going in for treatment.

How is Crowns Performed?

The dental crowns procedure requires 2 separate appointments with the dentist:

In the first appointment, the dentist will remove any decaying parts still within the tooth, clean it and then reshape it so that the crown will bind to it better. This part of the procedure is done under local anaesthesia, in order to eliminate any potential pain or discomfort. Once this part of the process is over, the dentist will proceed to take an impression or mould of the tooth. The mould will then be used to create the dental crown. Before leaving, the dentist will place a temporary dental crown on the tooth – crowns teeth need to be protected until the permanent dental crown is placed.

In the second appointment, the permanent crown’s colour, shape and size is checked on the patient. Any modifications are done at this point. Once both the dentist and patient are satisfied with the crown, a special binding agent is applied and the dental crown is cemented permanently.

Crowns Risks and Complications

Although rare, there are some complications associated with porcelain crowns and zirconia crowns. Potential dental crowns problems include:

● Dental crowns nerve damage – the nerve of the tooth can be damaged during the preparation for a dental crown and this can lead to the need of a root canal treatment and removal of the nerve.
● Dental crowns can increase sensitivity of the tooth – special types of toothpaste can be used to decrease sensitivity.
● Allergic reaction to the materials used – this can be avoided by having an allergy test.
● Dental crown infection – this can happen if the crown itself is not properly sealed or the decayed part of the tooth is not removed entirely during the preparation phase.

Crowns Side Effects

Patients may feel numbness from the local anaesthesia for a few hours after the procedure. Patients can also experience an increase in sensitivity of the tooth, especially when consuming cold or hot food and drinks – this usually lasts about a week after the procedure.

Crowns Success Rates

Dental crowns on teeth are durable and reliable, if properly cared for. A survey based on dental crowns patient reviews sets the success rate at 92%, 6 years after the procedure.

Before and After Crowns

Dental crowns before and after pictures may seem appealing but the patient needs to understand that dental crowns do require some special attention – flossing, brushing and regular checkups are required in order to ensure the health of the dental crown, especially if we are talking about crowns on front teeth, which are the most visible.

Over 11 million tourists visited Istanbul in 2012, making it the fifth most popular tourist destination in the world.

Sights to See

The Blue Mosque
The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, also called the Blue Mosque incorporates Islamic architecture and Byzantine Christian elements in its design. It is considered to be the last great mosque of the classical period. The Mosque got its name from the 20,000 Iznik blue ceramic tiles used to line its interiors. The Blue Mosque is also the final resting place of Sultan Ahmed which commissioned the building in 1609, with work finishing in 1616.

Basilica Cistern
The Basilica Cistern is one of the most popular tourist sites in Istanbul. The Cistern is huge, with a total of 336 columns arranged in 12 rows. It was built in order to store water during the Byzantine time – in the 6th century. Most of the columns feature decorative carvings, as they were re-used from other classical-age structures. Some of the most interesting columns on the site are the Medusa stones, in the north-west corner of the Cistern.

Topkapı Palace
Topkapı Palace is one of the finest examples of Islamic art and architecture. The palace itself was built by Mehmet the Conqueror in the 15th century and has been the residence of Ottoman Sultans for over 400 years. The palace is a vast complex of richly decorated courtyards and rooms. The palace features a Harem, the Imperial Treasury room, the Imperial Council Chamber, the Second Court, the Third Court (the Sultan’s private rooms) and the Palace Kitchens. The palace became an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985 and has been described as “one of the best examples of palaces of the Ottoman period”.

● There are 3 main airports in Istanbul. Hazerfen Airport is a private airport with limited traffic. Atatürk Airport is located on the European side of Istanbul and Sabiha Gökçen Airport is located on the Asian side of Istanbul.

Crowns FAQ

?
Dental Crowns vs Veneers – What to pick?

Depends on the tooth’s health – If the tooth is decayed, a zirconia crown or porcelain crown is the best option. Veneers can only be applied on healthy teeth only.

?
Crowns and bridges – What is the difference?

Dental Crowns are generally used when the tooth has a large cavity or is cracked. Bridges on the other hand can be used for teeth that are simply missing or need to be removed entirely. The bridge will always be placed between two dental crowns.

?
Can I have crowns on front teeth?
