Besides they are aesthetically appealing, they look like your natural teeth, available at affordable costs and offered as a part of our DMC Tour Dental porcelain crowns services.

What Is a
Porcelain Crown?

Just like all dental crowns, porcelain crowns are used as a prosthetic cap on a damaged tooth to prevent possible health problems, eliminate risks and restore the functionality and look of the teeth. Because of their translucent color, porcelain crowns are among the most preferred crown types all around the world.

Although they can be a solution for the treatment of all teeth, these crowns are widely preferred for front tooth restoration. If you are looking for aesthetic treatment or have large or fractured fillings, fractured, decayed or broken teeth, or treated with a root canal, then you are the perfect candidate for porcelain crowns.

As these crowns can be used in adults, they are perfectly safe for children too. It is also worth noting that there are different types of porcelain crowns such as e-max, and zirconia, and we can provide you with services of any type you prefer.

In What Cases Are the Porcelain Crowns Used?

Porcelain crowns can be preferred because of a wide range of needs. They are great materials especially for restoring the look of patients and are widely preferred for cosmetic purposes. Thanks to their perfect translucent characteristics, they exactly look like your natural teeth.

Moreover, the required color to match your natural teeth can be easily achieved. However, besides cosmetic purposes, porcelain crowns can also be used for a wide range of oral problems.

For example, they are widely preferred to protect the tooth of patients after their root canal treatment. In addition to this, they are used as a replacement for fallen out or loose large fillings. In case you want to reshape your crooked teeth, you can also prefer these crowns.
Additionally, they are widely used to keep dental bridges in place. Most of the time, your dentist will recommend your porcelain crowns when you have any kind of injury in your teeth.

What Are the Porcelain Crown Types?

There is a wide range of porcelain crowns that you can choose between. As a part of our DMC Tour Dental’s porcelain crown services and treatments, we also provide guidance for our patients to make the right choice depending on their preferences and conditions. Here are some of the popular porcelain crown types.
• E-max (Layered)

• Sirona
Today, e-max layered and monolithic crowns are very popular. These crowns are a kind of porcelain crown that offers the highest durability and just like all other porcelains, you can use them for a lifetime. Of course, good dental care is a must to achieve this goal.
Another important porcelain crown type is the Zirconium crown. On the other than, the durability of both crowns will be quite enough for most people.

    What is a Metal-Supported Porcelain Crown?

    When Is It Needed?

    Metal-supported porcelain crowns are one of the widely used solutions in dentistry for many years. These crowns are as durable as full ceramic crowns. The only difference between them and full ceramic crowns is these are metal allow caps, which are coated with a porcelain finish.

    These crowns are designed in labs, especially for patients, and their quality matters. The craftsmanship of these crowns will determine how they will look on your mouth and how perfectly they match your natural teeth.

    In addition to this, metal-supported porcelain crowns can be used for a wide range of purposes. These include replacing large fillings, treating discolored, stained, broken, or crooked teeth, or just cosmetic purposes. In addition to that, they are used on single teeth, and for bridges and implants as well.

    Difference Between Metal-Supported Crowns and Zirconium-Supported Crowns.

    Basically, metal-supported crowns and zirconium-supported crowns serve the same purpose. Zirconium crowns are a relatively new product in dentistry, and they are widely preferred due to their costs, ease of manufacturing, and appealing benefits.

    Zirconium crowns are free from any metal alloy and are made of zirconia, a material available in nature. As a result, the likelihood of your bodily reactions or responses to the treatment is really low. On the other hand, some people may have allergic reactions to certain metal alloys, which metal-supported crowns should trigger. It is important to discuss all your allergic problems with your dentist before any operation or treatment.

    Empress Porcelain

    Empress porcelain is also a widely used porcelain type, although not as much as e-max or zirconium crowns. It is safe to say that empress porcelain is a bit outdated products because of the invention of zirconium and e-max. However, these porcelain crowns offer higher durability and resistance compared to traditional porcelain crowns. What makes these crowns special is they are completely metal-free. They do not have a metal base and are produced by firing a glass ceramic over a crystalline core.

    As a part of DMC Tour Dental’s porcelain crown healthcare tourism packages, we can treat your problems with this crown type too.

    Is Root Canal Treatment Required for Porcelain Crowned Tooth?

    No, there is no such requirement for any of the crowns. However, since porcelain crowns are often preferred after root canal treatment, most patients believe they need to get a root canal treatment. This is just a myth, and anyone can prefer porcelain crowns for various purposes. On the other hand, if you have a root canal treatment, then you need a crown to cover the operation area. This will prevent possible problems in the future for your oral health.

    It is also worth noting that depending on your unique condition, you may have to get a root canal treatment before the placement of your porcelain crown. However, this is not required in all patients, and it depends on your current oral health.

    How Should Porcelain Crown Care Be Made?

    After you get your porcelain crown, you need to pay attention to its care so that you can use it for a lifetime. In this regard, your dentist will share some recommendations and suggestions with you. Most of these care routines have vital importance for your natural teeth as well and you should not neglect them. For example, you will be recommended to avoid hard and sticky food. Although crowns may be quite durable and strong, this does not mean that they cannot be damaged. This is basically the same for your natural teeth.

    In addition to this, patients must brush their teeth at least twice a day and should not neglect to floss. This will keep your crown as well as all your natural teeth healthy. Moreover, if you have some habits that can lead to damage to your teeth, you may need to use a night guard. Of course, the ones that you can stop such as biting your nails, chewing on pencils and other objects should be quitted too. You also need to visit a dentist regularly for regular checkups and dental care.

    Do Problems Arise After the Treatment?

    No problems will arise after the treatment only if it will be practiced by expert and experienced dentists. However, depending on the type of porcelain crown, there may be some risks. For example, porcelain crowns with metal alloys may lead to body reactions and responses.

    This is not the case in metal-free porcelain crowns such as e-max, zirconium, and empress porcelain. Another important thing to note is you should not forget that porcelain crown treatment involves surgery. Thus, risks that are available for all surgeries are also valid for these treatments. On the other hand, as the leading DMC Tour Dental’s porcelain crown treatment clinic, we assure you that you will not need to worry about any of these in our fully equipped clinics.
