Why Do I Need a Dental Crown?


Dental crowns have a variety of uses in dental care.

Crowns are also used to replace missing teeth, for instance as part of a bridge, or in conjunction with a dental implant.

Why Get A Dental Crown in Istanbul?


Istanbul is a unique city with one side in Europe and the other in Asia. Historically—and at times unfortunately—it has been a much-coveted location. Five empires that have made the city their capital are testament to that. Istanbul is well-preserved with incredible architecture that has stood for centuries, notably the impressive Hagia Sophia dating from 537. You will find so much to explore in Istanbul, from the narrow, cobbled streets of the old town on the European (west) side, to the Bosphorus Strait and its promenades separating the east and west sides. The Asian east side that isn’t as touristy as the west, and offers visitors artsy neighbourhoods, great shopping and an eclectic, trendy nightlife.

While Istanbul is a fantastic location for a holiday, it’s also noted for high-quality dental work. You will be comforted to discover an established dental tourism scene here. The clinics treating international clients are generally ultra-modern and well-equipped, and pay particular attention to delivering good-quality at value-for-money prices. Dentists in Turkey are well-trained and the best clinics have state-of-the-art technologies at their disposal, such as CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture), allowing dental in-house labs to make your new crown on-site, while you wait.

Do Crowns in Istanbul Differ from Those at Home?

Not at all. Just because you are paying lower prices does not mean the quality or materials is inferior. In fact, at the best clinics, exactly the same materials for dental crowns are available in Istanbul as in your home country, and the choice of material is your own preference. All materials have pros and cons, which your dentist will discuss with you so you can make a decision that is right for your circumstances. This may be from a cost point of view, or it could be down to the suitability of a particular material for the type of tooth (e.g. whether your dentist is treating a molar or incisor).

The types of material used for dental crowns include:

  • Metal: Metals include platinum, gold and alloys. The benefit of metal crowns it they withstand chewing and biting forces extremely well and because they don’t wear down are long-lasting. They can be placed on any teeth, although not everyone wants a lump of metal inside their mouth, even if placed on the back teeth.
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM): The underlying structure of the crown is metal, but overlaid with porcelain that is colour-matched to your own teeth. While these crowns are fairly strong too, they are generally more expensive than metal crowns. However, porcelain can break off, or chip, and while porcelain is a natural-looking material the underlying metal can sometimes show through the porcelain, casting a grey tinge.
  • Resin: This is the cheapest material available for crowns. The resin is colour-matched to teeth, but wears down quicker than metal and PFM crowns.
  • Ceramic or Porcelain Crowns: These crowns provide a natural colour match to your own teeth. They are strong and can be used on both front and back teeth but they are more expensive than most other crown materials. Porcelain crowns may chip, and the hard-wearing nature of the material may wear down adjacent teeth.
  • Zirconia: Zirconia is hard-wearing and provides the most natural-looking material for a crown. It is colour-matched to your own teeth and biocompatible, but it is also the most expensive option.

Is Getting a Dental Crown in Istanbul a Good Dental Tourism Option?


Absolutely. If you want to save some money on general dental care and combine it with a city break or a holiday then getting a dental crown abroad is something to consider. You will be following in the footsteps of millions of patients who now cross borders every year dental care.

Istanbul is a fantastic destination in terms of culture, things to do and things to see. The procedure for a dental crown won’t impinge too much on your holiday time—particularly if your dentist offers CAD/CAM where you can get your new crown in one visit while you wait. With crowns, you will usually experience no recovery downtime afterward.
