Hungary is a great destination for dental tourists. The capital, Budapest, is a beautiful, historic city nestled on the banks of the River Danube, while other areas of the country, including Lake Heviz and its thermal spas are also popular locations to visit. There’s more than enough to see and do throughout the country after you’ve finished your dental care—and as the cost of living is cheap you’ll be able to enjoy it to the full.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps placed over a tooth. They can be made from porcelain, ceramic, metal, zirconia and gold and are suitable for prosthetic reconstructions anywhere in the mouth.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Crowns?

• Dental crowns can protect a damaged tooth weakened by decay, fracture, root canal therapy or large fillings from further damage. Large fillings can sometimes lead to stress fractures of the tooth as the filling tends to flex more. A dental crown provides protection and also seals a tooth from decay.

• They are useful to help preserve the natural function of a tooth, helping to restore and maintain a natural bite, and they can be used to replace missing teeth in a bridge or with a dental implant.

• Dental crowns are beneficial, not just in a functional way, but are used in cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of a tooth, covering irregularities and discoloration, and helping to maintain a happy, natural smile.

• Beautiful and long-lasting, the only problem that you may have with crowns is the cost, which can soon become prohibitive if you require multiple crowns. This is why getting your dental crowns in Hungary with Dental Departures could be one of the best dental decisions you ever make.

Types of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are made from a variety of materials which vary in price, but your dentist in Hungary will discuss the options with you so you can decide what is suitable for your circumstances. The most common dental crowns are porcelain ceramic crowns and porcelain fused to metal (PFM).

Porcelain or ceramic crowns create a very natural-looking appearance as the material is translucent, just like the enamel on your teeth. They are typically used on the front teeth, but they are suitable for use anywhere in the mouth due to the strength of the material. Porcelain crowns are metal-free and made from biocompatible materials, minimizing the risk of allergic reactions.

PFM crowns are a hybrid between all-ceramic and all-metal crowns and are one of the most popular materials. They have the advantage of providing the strength of metal, but with the natural appearance of porcelain. While they are stronger than porcelain crowns they are more prone to fracture than an all-metal crown.
