A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” used to replace and cover a damaged tooth. The crown improves a tooth’s appearance and restores its size, shape and strength. The purpose of crowns is to:
● Protect a weakened tooth from decay or breakage
● Restore the strength of a damaged tooth
● Cover a large filling
● Hide discoloration
● Cover an implant or hold a bridge
Crowns are made from various kinds of materials: stainless steel, metal, all-resin, all-ceramic/all-ceramic, and Zirconia or milled crowns.
Your dentist will determine which type of material is best for you. Discuss your concerns and you’ll be presented with a customized treatment plan based on your goals and budget.
The process for dental crowns normally involves two or three visits (except for Zirconia or milled crown, which can be processed in one day). Examination and preparation of the teeth are carried out during the first visit, followed by the placement of the crowns.
During the first visit, your dentist will perform a complete examination, take x-rays and commence the procedure by numbing the tooth and gums. Then, the tooth will be prepared to make room for your crown. Impressions of your teeth are taken and processed in the lab. You’ll be given a temporary crown while waiting for the permanent one. On your next visit, the new crown will be placed over your tooth and your treatment is complete!
The cost of your crowns all depends on the type of material you choose, as well as the technology used and several other factors. If you book in with one of our verified clinics in Bali, an estimate is US $328.75 (CAD $417.51; AUD $423.51; NZD $474.70; UK £229) - representing significant savings compared to countries like Australia, New Zealand and the US.
