Last fact-checked: 11 February 2020

Dental crowns in Denpasar fix various issues, such as cracks and chips. If you need to restore cracked or broken teeth, undergoing this type of dental restoration in Bali’s capital can save you a fortune compared to prices back home.

Denpasar is the capital of Bali, Indonesia, which is one of Southeast Asia's most-visited holiday destinations, particularly with Aussies and Kiwis.

Tourists around the globe flock to this paradise thanks to its stunning beaches, majestic volcanic scenery, ancient temples and cheap cost of living —with many backpackers and budget travelers finding it possible to spend a whole month exploring the island for as much as a week's holiday elsewhere. 

The tropical weather is perfect for sunbathing and water activities. Aside from the beaches nearby, Denpasar is the best place to shop in Bali. Local shops display a wide array of Balinese handicrafts, including artwork, textiles, and pottery so you can make the most of your trip while having that long-overdue crown for a discounted price. 

What Are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a dental restoration used to cover a damaged tooth. A crown is also used to:

  • Protect a weak or decayed tooth
  • Restore broken or worn down teeth
  • Cover a discolored or misshapen tooth
  • Support or cover a dental filling
  • Hold a dental bridge
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Protect a child’s tooth from tooth decay

Crowns are made from various materials, such as stainless steel, metal, porcelain fused to metal, all resin, all-porcelain/ceramic, and zirconia or milled crown.

Stainless steel is commonly used for children’s teeth as a temporary measure due to the fact that it’s cheaper and requires minimal trips to the clinic.

However, for adults, your dentist will discuss the merits of each material available for the crown and make recommendations based on your individual needs. 

What Is the Process Involved in the Treatment?

In brief, the process involves an examination, impressions, preparation of the tooth and then finally the placement of the crown.

On your initial visit, the dentist will examine your teeth, including the surrounding bone. Depending on the extent of damage, the dentist may recommend a root canal treatment to restore the teeth before placing a crown.

The dentist will begin the process by numbing the tooth and gum tissue using local anesthesia. The tooth surface is trimmed to make room for your crown. Then your dentist will make impressions of your teeth and forward this to the laboratory for processing. On your next visit, the crown will be fitted and placed over the tooth. Same-day crowns are available if your clinic has an on-site lab using the latest CAD/CAM technologies.
