Malaysia is a multicultural country endowed with beautiful landscapes, tropical climate, rich culture, and fascinating tourist attractions. See the tea plantations of Cameron Highlands, the cultural heritage of George Town or the breathtaking scenery of Langkawi beaches—there’s plenty to see and do throughout the country. Unwind in this fascinating country while getting much-needed treatment from one of the dental clinics offering good quality and affordable prices. 

What Is a Dental Crown?


A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover that is placed over the tooth. It improves the appearance and restores its shape, size, and strength. The crown is designed to:

  • Protect a weak tooth from decay or from further damage.
  • Restore a broken or worn-down tooth.
  • Support a tooth with fillings.
  • Hold a dental bridge.
  • Cover an implant.

What Are the Types of Crowns?


The crown or “cap” can be made from stainless steel, all-metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, ceramic, all-resin or Zirconia (milled crowns). Stainless steel is commonly used for children to cover a primary tooth. Metal crowns are more durable but the colour is the main drawback. Porcelain-fused-to-metal matches the colour of your teeth. All-ceramic or all-porcelain mimics the colour of your natural tooth but it’s not as strong as the porcelain-fused to metal. All-resin is more inexpensive but it’s prone to fractures. Zirconia or milled crown is digitally manufactured in the dental office in just one visit.

Why Should I Get Dental Crowns in Malaysia?


Aside from the tourist attractions in Malaysia, a number of dental clinics offer high-quality crowns at a reasonable price. The clinics use top quality materials ranging from metal crowns to Zirconia or milled crowns. Interestingly, the price is less expensive in Malaysia.

The crowns are designed and created by the dental team who completed and trained not only locally but also internationally. The clinics are affiliated with the Malaysian Dental Association and Malaysian Dental Council. Sterilization and safety standards are properly observed in the center.

What Should I Expect from the Crowns Procedure?


The crowns procedure usually requires a couple of visits to the dentist. At the first consultation you will be assessed and if suitable, impressions of your mouth are made and your tooth prepared to receive the crown. The impressions are sent to a laboratory to make the crown and you will return to your dentist shortly afterward to have it fitted once the crown has been received.

If the dental clinic has CAD/CAM technology, then you may be able to get the crown while you wait, in one visit.

How Do I Maintain the Dental Crowns?


Simply observe proper oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly. Don’t forget to visit the dentist regularly for teeth cleaning.

How Much Can I Save on Dental crowns in Malaysia Compared to Other Countries?


The cost of crowns in a Malaysia dental clinic starts at USD$ 247.897 (CAN $323.204; AUD $324.765; £173.890) compared to USD $850.136 in the United States and AUD $1,115 in Australia. That’s big savings, which can help pay for your vacation in Malaysia.
