What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns, also known as full veneers, are the name given to the application of a hard, tooth-like substance created as a cap for a broken, weak or damaged tooth to return functionality and improve the aesthetics of the tooth. Sometimes known as full veneer crowns can be used to cover teeth that are damaged or worn down. You can use a full crown to transform a smile completely. This type of treatment can be used for both cosmetic or medical purposes. Crowns can also be used to match your existing teeth, fix gaps in the teeth and close the gaps.
In some cases, a whole tooth may be synthesised to be screwed onto a dental implant, securing the new tooth (or teeth in the case of a bridge) to the jawbone itself for strength. Dental crowns are manufactured using several different techniques and from multiple different materials, which we explore in more detail below. Prices for each method and material differ, and all have different properties. Choosing which dental crown material may be entirely down to personal choice, or in other cases, some may be more viable than others, narrowing the field of choice. Our dental partners in Turkey have helped fit thousands of dental crowns over the years for thousands of happy customers, and when you’re ready, we’re more than happy to make an introduction with a free consultation.

What are dental crowns made out of?
Dental crowns materials and manufacturing methods change between dental practices and from client to client depending on the unique challenges presented by their teeth.
However, some main identifiable types of dental crown are simple to discuss:
- Stainless Steel Dental Crowns
Less common than they used to be because of their unnatural appearance, stainless steel dental crowns are usually just a temporary measure to cap off a broken tooth before a more permanent crown can be constructed. While not usually aesthetically pleasing, these crowns serve to protect what is left of the tooth from further decay until the final crown can be applied.
- Other Metal Crowns
Crowns made from Gold, Platinum or cobalt-chromium and nickel-chromium alloys again used to be more commonplace than they are now. While they have a generally unnatural look, they do work well to protect the remainder of the tooth as they naturally do not rust or react to moisture or air. Difficult to damage but not always to everyone’s visual tastes, these crowns are usually only used for molars or on other teeth that are not part of the client’s smile.
- Porcelain and metal fusing
Porcelain (that’s the stuff your plates at home may be made from) is used the world over in dentistry due to its ability to mimic natural teeth right down to the right level of translucency, and it is often used to make crowns.
There are several different types of porcelain used, including stronger and more natural Emax porcelain. By fusing it to metal, crowns made in this way are stronger and more natural in appearance.
- Resin Crowns
Relatively cheap compared to many dental crown materials, the resin is very easy to mould into the right shape, but they also wear down quicker than most and may fracture more easily than porcelain models.
These crowns are again made from porcelain, zirconia or another form of dental-grade silicate. However, they do not feature the metal component. This may be down to allergies to metals.
What process is involved with creating dental crowns?
As with all dental procedures, the first step is a thorough assessment from a dental professional to determine whether a crown is the best option to solve the issues being presented and form a bespoke plan of action moving forward.
It is normal to take x-rays too to ensure that the roots and root canal is healthy and intact – without which, dental implants may be needed.
The tooth itself will then be prepped, often involving the trimming down of broken or damaged sections to make room for the crown and perhaps some filling inserted into any cavities.
A mould of your mouth will likely be created at this point. A 3D computer model of your tooth can then generate using CAD/CAM technology before construction of the crown itself takes place at a dental laboratory.
You may leave your first appointment with a temporary crown to help protect the tooth against decay in the meantime.
After which, a second session will include the actual fitting of the crown itself, made from a material that will have been agreed upon between you and your dentist beforehand. You will probably receive some local anaesthetic to numb the area appropriately before the procedure begins.
Will I need dental implants to get a crown?
Not always. Dental implants are used when the tooth is entirely missing or must be removed in its entirety because of its condition. A damaged tooth may be stripped down in many cases, and a crown added to protect it while keeping the roots in place.
However, this is not always possible either, and if your dentist decides that using a crown as a cap is not viable, you may wish to look at dental implant costs and procedures to find a viable alternative.

Dental Crowns FAQ
Please try to avoid eating sticky foods before your appointment, and if you are attending your second appointment and are currently using a temporary crown then this is even more important.
The risks around the dental crown procedure itself are rare. Most adults are already aware if they have a potential allergic reaction to local anaesthetic and can make staff aware at the consultation phase. Other than that, you will be conscious as the dangers of using a general anaesthetic are negated by using a local.
Please ensure you follow the instructions of your dental staff before, during and after the procedure to minimise your risks.
Any dentist will tell you that strong, natural and healthy teeth are always the best option, and that synthetic replacements will never fully replace that – please look after your teeth!
However, the creation and application of dental crowns is a well-developed field of dentistry, with just a few things to look out for in the long term, many of which differ little from ordinary tooth care:
- Discomfort and/or sensitivity is uncommon but a possibility. After the numbness wears off your tooth will feel strange for a while, but this should pass and all discomfort or sensitivity issues should pass within days or weeks. Your dentist may suggest using toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth which will help alleviate the problem.
- Some issues may cause you to seek a dental professional again, but these are rare. Crowns are not indescribable, and they may still chip, wear or become lose if the cement beneath it is washed away.
- Allergies should not be an issue with most crown materials, however if you know you have a metals allergy you should mention this so the dentist can avoid certain crowns.
This is a surgical procedure, and as such carries some of the normal risks involved with any surgery, such as infection at the implant site and never damage which may cause numbness or in rare cases discomfort in the jaw.
This can be effected by what material your dental crown is constructed from, the condition of the underlying tooth, and the way in which it is treated and cared for, but generally most crowns last for around 15 years.
