What Is a Dental Crown? 

Dental crowns are also called ‘caps’ as they fit over your teeth. They can be used to add strength to damaged or weak teeth, hide ugly teeth or help replace missing teeth as part of a dental implant or dental bridge .

What Are Dental Crowns Made From?

Dental crowns can be made from a number of materials —each with their own pros and cons. Your dentist will discuss the best options for you, which is as much dependent on its position in your mouth as it is your own preferences in terms of the cosmetic result.

Materials for crowns include:

● Metal: This is inexpensive and extremely hard-wearing, although cosmetically it doesn’t give the best result.

● Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM): These have a metal base but are covered in porcelain to match the colour of your other teeth. Although hard-wearing, the metal is sometimes visible through the porcelain; and while porcelain is hard-wearing, it is prone to chipping.

● Porcelain: This is a cosmetically pleasing and hard-wearing option but is prone to wearing down.

● Zirconia: The most expensive option (although a whole lot more affordable in Tunisia) and very natural-looking.

What Does the Procedure for Dental Crowns Entail?

Dental crowns treatment usually requires two visits to the dentist, both of which can be done even during a short trip to Tunisia:

  1. During the first visit, the dentist will check your mouth to ensure that a dental crown is needed. If so, your tooth will be prepared to receive the crown. The dentist will pare it down so that the crown fits comfortably in your mouth. Impressions of your teeth are then taken and sent to the laboratory where your crown is custom-made. The dentist will put a temporary crown in place until our new crown is ready.
  1. At your next appointment, the temporary crown will be removed and the dentist will check that the new crown fits over your tooth. Any minor adjustments are made by the dentist before securing the crown to the tooth with a light-activated adhesive.

CAD/CAM Same-Day Dentistry

If your dentist offers computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture (CAD/CAM) dentistry , it should be possible to be measured up and have your crown fitted on the same day, while you wait. Thus, the two steps as described above are combined together, giving you more time to get on with enjoying your break in Tunisia .
