Are you unhappy with your smile?

Dental crowns (covers) are an ideal replacement for a natural or damaged tooth. Ceramic dental crowns are the art of today's dental medicine because they most faithfully imitate a natural tooth and are the best solution in terms of gums.

When most of the tooth structure has been destroyed, a ceramic crown is the best choice because it best compensates for all the lost features of the natural tooth and protects the rest from further decay. Crowns are placed on a ground tooth, as part of a bridge (pontic) or on an implant. Depending on the material, we distinguish between zirconin ceramic and metal ceramic crowns.

Who needs dental crowns?

  • Patients with a tooth that has already been treated many times, that is cracked or badly damaged by cavities.
  • Patients who are missing one tooth and want to replace it and at the same time beautify their other natural teeth

Each placement of dental crowns at Dentum begins with detailed planning and preparation of the tooth before starting the prosthetic part.

The patient, the dentist and the dental technician cooperate during the entire process of making dental crowns. During this time, the patient wears temporary crowns, and is never missing a tooth.


Dental crowns are one of the best prosthetic replacements for a natural or damaged tooth.

In addition to the advanced methods and materials we use in our clinic, crowns have rightly earned the epithet “the art of today's dental medicine”.

Problems that we solve by placing dental crowns

  • Broken or worn tooth crowns
  • Adding a superstructure to the dental implant
  • Fixing the bridge abutments
  • Restoring a tooth destroyed by caries

Benefits of dental crowns

  • Zirconia ceramic crowns most faithfully imitate a natural tooth
  • Crowns are relatively permanent and do not need to be removed for cleaning like dentures
  • Strength and durability
  • A long-lasting fixed solution that does not change color or shape over time

“Teeth are prepared for crowns in case of serious tooth destruction caused by caries or treatment, when it is necessary to change the bite height, or when we need to replace an existing worn crown or bridge. With a dental crown, the remaining tooth structure is fully protected.”

Frequently asked questions

How long do dental crowns last?

Dental crowns last on average from 10 to 15 years, but this depends on many factors: the method of placing and the quality of the crown, oral hygiene, regular check-ups, bite pattern, the health of the surrounding teeth, but also on genetics and the condition of the gums and jaw bones. At regular check-ups, you will receive timely information about the need to replace the crown.

How to take care of dental crowns?

Oral hygiene should be improved, and in addition to brushing teeth, it should include flossing and interdental brushes.

What if I experience a tooth pain under the crown?

If the tooth covered by the crown starts to decay, the dentist will proceed with the treatment after the examination and diagnosis. The tooth can be treated very easily through a crown.

When the dentist grinds my teeth, will I be toothless until I get new crowns?

During the making of permanent crowns, all patients receive temporary crowns and are never missing teeth. Temporary crowns are made of hard plastic material and are a temporary solution.

Is the process of grinding painful?

Before starting the tooth enamel grinding, you will receive local anesthesia, which makes the grinding process painless. After finishing the grinding and the anesthesia wears off, you might experience some sensitivity, which lasts for a few days.

How long does it take to make a crown?

The process of making dental crowns usually takes about 5 working days, but it can take a bit longer due to modifications made during fittings.

What are the advantages of zirconia ceramic crown?

Fully ceramic (zirconia ceramic) crowns are the pinnacle of modern dental medicine. They most faithfully imitate a natural tooth and are the best solution in terms of gums. These crowns are completely biocompatible, meaning that the body does not reject them. Aesthetically, they faithfully imitate the teeth color, so it is almost impossible to see the difference between a natural tooth and a dental crown. They are recommended when placing crowns on the front teeth.

What are the advantages of metal ceramic crown?

The main advantages of metal ceramic crowns are the strength and resistance of the metal, so this type of crown is mostly used to cover premolars and molars due to strong masticatory forces.
