Dental Crowns
A complete guide to 2023

Dental crowns – one of the most effective tools for restoring a tooth. They are made of high-quality materials, perfectly matching your gums and the color of your natural teeth. So, if you want to have a perfect smile, dental crowns are the optimal solution, and next we will explore in detail how they work and what benefits they have.

Do you know how dental crowns came about?

The history of dental crowns began in the 18th century, when the founder of orthodontics in France, Pierre Fauchard, came up with an excellent solution to save teeth affected by caries. Damaged teeth were covered with a gold plate, over which a layer of porcelain was added.

Since then, more than 300 years have passed, and treatment methods have changed a lot, but the concept has remained the same. Now, instead of porcelain, everyone can choose a crown material that suits them.

When do I need dental crowns?

The crowns are made in the Dentus•Dentino dental center laboratory. Having our own laboratory, we can control the quality of materials and production process.

🦷 This allows us to ensure that dental crowns are made to the highest quality standards.

🦷 The production time is reduced, which means that our patients do not have to wait a long time to get the dental crowns.

🦷 We can customize dental crowns for each individual patient. This means that each dental crown is tailored to the patient’s needs and preferences.

If the tooth is more than 50% destroyed for one reason or another, then the dental crown is the solution (the root must be intact and healthy).

Fixation of dental crowns is necessary in the following situations:

◉ Teeth affected by more than 50% caries

◉ Teeth devitalized (without nerve), due to very large caries

◉ Dyschromia (tooth color abnormalities), pigmented teeth due to fluorosis

◉ Dental fractures (broken, cracked, broken tooth)

◉ Interdental gaps, shape defects (abrasion of enamel and dentin)

◉ Dental dwarfism (incomplete tooth development, small teeth)

◉ Defective or abnormal positions of the teeth (malpositions): rotation, inclination, etc.


Among all types of prostheses, dental crowns have a number of advantages for patients:

► Rapid recovery of masticatory function and aesthetic appearance

► Perfectly imitates the shape and structure of natural teeth

► Correct distribution of masticatory load, eliminating the risks of abrasion of adjacent teeth and malocclusion

► Selection of the shade of white, compatible with natural teeth

► Quick adaptation (you won’t feel the difference between crowns and natural teeth)

► Perfectly covers cosmetic defects (spots, cracks, small teeth, etc.).

What is the best dental crown?

Dental crowns are made of a variety of materials, such as ceramic, zirconium or metal-ceramic. Each material has its advantages and disadvantages, and the choice depends on the individual needs of the patient and the recommendations of the dentist.

Zirconia crowns. Zirconium dental crowns. They are made of zirconium, a very hard ceramic material. They are suitable for the back teeth and offer impeccable aesthetics. It is highly valued because it has superior strength and durability compared to other types of dental crowns.

Ceramic crowns. These are the most popular, due to their natural and aesthetic appearance. They are suitable for front teeth and perfectly match the color of natural teeth. They are also durable and resistant. The ceramic material used for the dental crown is biocompatible, which means it does not cause allergic reactions or irritation.

Metal-ceramic crowns. The ceramic applied over the metal base offers a natural and aesthetic appearance, so that the crown fits perfectly with the other teeth and looks as natural as possible. It combines the strength and durability of metal with the aesthetic appeal of ceramic.

There is no dental crown that is considered the best for all patients, as each case is unique and requires an individualized approach.
