Crowns in Penang

The Ultimate Guide to Crowns in Penang

Last fact-checked: 14 February 2020

Receive dental crowns in Penang, Malaysia at a quality-checked clinic and pay hundreds less when you book with Dental Departures.

Situated along the northwest coast of Malay Peninsular, the state of Penang is comprised of two main areas (both of which are connected by two bridges and ferry crossings), namely Penang Island and Seberang Perai on the mainland.

The region is known for its dazzling coastlines, scenic attractions, and exciting activities for travelers. The sandy beaches in Batu Ferringhi and Tanjung Bungah attract many visitors while historical sites, museums and art galleries will delight the culture enthusiasts. A growing number of luxurious spas and wellness retreats (mostly found on the island) are also great for some post-treatment relaxation. 

What Are Dental Crowns?

A crown is a tooth-shaped cap (sometimes called a replacement tooth) which is attached on top of the tooth. It restores the size, shape, and strength of a tooth and improves its appearance. The “cap” has a variety of uses, including:

  • Protect a weak tooth from breakage
  • Cover a large filling
  • Restore a broken or damaged tooth
  • Hide a discolored or misshapen tooth
  • Cover a dental implant or hold a bridge
  • Save a decayed tooth or protect a child’s tooth from tooth decay.

Crowns can be made from stainless steel, all-metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all-resin, all-ceramic/all-porcelain or zirconia. Each one has its own pros and cons, which your dentist will discuss with you.

Stainless steel is commonly used for children to protect their teeth from further decay as it can withstand chewing and biting. However, the main drawback is color, which is why they used mostly for molars.

What’s the Process Involved in the Treatment?

An initial consultation with your dentist is the first step to restoring teeth with dental crowns. Diagnostic tests are taken to check your suitability, and upon confirmation, your teeth will be prepared by removing a small portion of enamel to make room for the crown. After cleaning, the dentist will place a temporary crown. Impressions of your teeth will be taken to be sent to the laboratory. On your next visit, which is normally after a few days, the crown that's been sent back from the lab will be fitted and cemented onto your tooth to complete the procedure. 

Take note that if you opt for zirconia, a temporary crown is not needed because it can usually be processed in one day.

How Much Can I Save on Dental Crowns in Penang?

The cost depends on the type of materials you choose. On average, crowns in Penang cost AUD $324 (CAN $323; USD $247; UK £173; EURO €223); the same treatment in Australia can be up to $1,500 (CAN $1,400; USD $1,100; UK £850; EURO €1,015).

Three of our leading partner clinics in Penang where you can receive crowns at these same low prices are linked below:

What Can You Say About the Clinics in Penang?

Many clinics in Penang, as well as throughout the rest of Malaysia, have excellent experience in treating international patients. English is spoken widely as Malaysia was a former British colony and it is still the country's official second language. We ensure that all of the clinics we partner with are up-to-date, adhering to international hygiene and safety standards, with highly-skilled dentists providing exceptional patient care.

Of course, you should always choose with care, and settle on a clinic with a good reputation. This is where Dental Departures comes in. Our listings give details of pre-screened clinics that we have visited ourselves, verified qualifications and professional memberships and collated authentic, verified patient reviews.

Can I Book Online?

Yes. Dental Departures can help you book an appointment with a dentist in Penang for your dental crowns. Browse dentist profiles, photos, compare prices and discover exclusive discounts. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our Customer Care Team via phone, email, or online.
