Dental crowns are used to preserve and rebuild the natural crown of the tooth. The material that covers the area around and on the teeth is made of metal, resin, ceramic or ceramic that is attached to metal.

Sometimes a large amount of the crown is lost due to factors such as the development of tooth decay or fracture due to impact. In such cases, chewing, beauty and quality of life are affected. To treat this, depending on the condition of the teeth, extensive restorations and dental crowns can be used.

Dentistry, like any other dental treatment, requires a great deal of knowledge, skill and experience. Improper treatments can lead to problems such as damage to adjacent teeth, gum disease, tooth breakage and even tooth loss. Therefore, the knowledge and ability of the dentist plays an important role in the longevity, beauty and health of your teeth and gums.

Dental Crowns are often used to overcome a number of problems. Some of these are:

Extensive caries on teeth
When tooth decay progresses, a large amount of tooth crown is lost. In this case, it is better to use veneer after tooth restoration.

Excessive restoration on the tooth 
If there is extensive restoration on the tooth, the veneer will put less pressure on the rest of the tooth; This prevents the teeth from breaking due to chewing. The veneer also covers the restored part and the tooth, thus preventing the restorative material from being pulled out and broken.

Root canalled tooth 
When tooth decay progresses too much, it sometimes reaches a stage where restorative treatments alone are not the answer. In this case, the tooth must be denervated. In most cases, denervated teeth are best covered because they lose a lot of tooth tissue.

Extensive tooth fracture 
In some cases, the crown of the tooth cracks or breaks upon sudden impact. In many cases, crown fractures are small and can be treated with restorative treatments. In some cases, the fracture is large and the tooth may have to be covered.

Implant veneer 
When a tooth is extracted for whatever reason, the space is left empty. This causes difficulty in chewing and negatively affects beauty. Implants can be used to replace this tooth.

Anterior veneers 
If the anterior teeth are discolored, broken, worn, deformed, treatments such as composite veneers and porcelain veneers can be used to ensure the beauty of these teeth. In these treatments, a layer of composite or ceramic covers only the upper surface of the tooth. But if the deformity, wear and discoloration of the teeth is excessive, these treatments are no longer responsive and artificial dental crowns veneers should be used.

What is a Dental Crown?


Every tooth is made of two parts, the crown and the root. The root is the part of the tooth that is located inside the jawbone and under the gums. The crown of the tooth is placed above the gums and that is the part we see in the mouth. Sometimes a large part of the crown is lost due to decay or fracture. In such cases, the damage is such that restorative treatments with composite veneers will not be strong enough. This may even lead to reduced lifespan of the teeth. In these cases, dental crowns are used.

The dental crown is like a crown made of resin, metal, ceramic or ceramic fused to metal, which covers the tooth crown and restorative material around the natural crown. Therefore, dental crowns increase the integrity, adhesion, strength and longevity of the teeth. The durability of the crown depends on various factors such as the type of crown, the dentist’s ability, the amount of oral hygiene and the person’s personal habits such as gnashing teeth and chewing hard materials. However, the lifespan of artificial dental crowns are estimated to be between 5 and 15 years.

Types of Dental Crown in Iran

All Metal Crowns

In this type of crown, a layer of metals such as platinum or alloys such as cobalt, chromium or nickel-chromium covers the tooth. They are used in special cases, such as when the distance between the tooth and the opposite tooth is short. Gold dental crowns also fall into this category. The color of this type of crown is different from the color of the teeth, so it is mostly used in the back of the mouth, which is not usually seen while talking and laughing.

Ceramic Crown Fused to Metal

This type of coating is more common nowadays. In this coating, a layer of ceramic or porcelain covers the metal. The ceramic has the same color and shine as the individual’s own teeth. In this way, in addition to the strength of the coating, its beauty is also preserved.

Ceramic Crowns

This type of coating is made only of ceramic or porcelain. Ceramic veneers usually do not have the strength of the previous two types of veneers and break under high pressure when chewing. This type of coating looks much better though and that is why it is usually used on frontal teeth, where beauty is more important and less pressure is applied to the teeth while chewing.

Zirconia Crowns

Zirconia is also a ceramic made of zirconium oxide or ZrO2; But it often falls into separate categories. Zirconia crowns are opaque and have an abnormal appearance. Therefore, it is mostly used in posterior teeth. To use it in areas where beauty is of more concern, a layer of porcelain is placed on it.

Today, another type of zirconia crown is made with high transparency and strength. They are more beautiful than the solid type and are exactly like natural teeth. To make this type of coating, newer and more advanced technology is usually used instead of molding. In this method, the shape and dimensions of the tooth are measured accurately using a scanner, and based on these, a suitable dental veneer is made.

Resin Crown

This type of crown is made of resin. Resin has less strength than metal and porcelain. It also wears out over time due to the forces of chewing.

Advantages of Dental Crown in Iran

Losing a large amount of tooth crown can make it difficult to eat. Also, if there are caries or fractures in the front teeth, the beauty of the person is endangered. In addition to the problems caused by not treating these teeth, incorrect and unscientific treatment not only does not solve the problem, but in some cases may create newer problems such as tooth loss. To avoid all the above problems, artificial dental crowns are recommended.

Iranian dentists have gained a great deal of knowledge and skills in installing dental crowns by studying in the best universities. Also, laboratories use the best materials available to make dental crowns in Iran, in accordance with modern science. However, the cost of installing dental crowns in Iran is much lower than in the rest of the world. This has led countless people to travel to Iran to receive dental treatments every year.

Who is It Not For?

  • Those whose teeth have very little crown left and have shorter roots than necessary.
  • Those whose teeth have little decay and can simply be repaired.

Preoperative Preparations

  • At the first visit to the dentist’s office, the dentist will present your treatment plan. This treatment plan is based on the tissue of your gums, mouth and teeth.
  • Be sure to inform your dentist if you have a specific illness, your hospitalization history, allergies, and any specific medications you take. Also, inform him if you are pregnant.
  • If the caries or fracture is deep, root canal treatment or denervation may be necessary prior to installing dental crowns.
  • If there are caries in your teeth, it should be removed before the treatment.
  • If the tooth you want to install crown on has undergone endodontic treatment or denervation, the dentist will first evaluate the quality of the endodontic treatment. If the quality of the root canal treatment is poor, you may need to redo this treatment again.
  • If the amount of remaining crown is insufficient, other treatment may be needed to increase the length of the crown. Crown lengthening is done with orthodontic or surgical instruments.
  • In most cases, a radiograph of your tooth is required before the denture can be applied.
  • If the amount of tissue lost from the tooth is large and the tooth root is short, installing a dental crown may not be possible. In these cases, according to the dentist’s discretion and the individual’s own opinion, treatments such as repairing or removing the tooth and replacing it with implants should be performed.

How Dental Crown Installation Is Done in Iran


Teeth are first machined and the mold is prepared from the teeth. The artificial dental crown is then made accordingly. Metal fused porcelain crowns are commonly used nowadays. The installation process is discussed in details below.

  • To make this type of crown, your dentist first anesthetizes your tooth through local injection.
  • He will then machine your teeth. The machine work varies depending on the type of crown your dentist is going to install, but it is often the case that the dentist cuts around the surface of your tooth.
  • Once machining is done, the dentist will take a mold from the teeth of both your jaws and send the molds to the lab to make metal crowns for the machined tooth.
  • After ensuring that the crown made for your teeth fits perfectly, the ceramic laboratory places the veneer on the metal and makes it smooth and radiant.
  • In the next session, the dentist installs the crown to the tooth with cement, which is a special adhesive for dentistry.

It should be noted that after the tooth is machined, the dentist will make a temporary crown for your teeth which is placed on your teeth after each session. The material and color of the temporary crown is different from the material and color of the permanent one and it is less strong. The temporary cover is used to:

  • Maintain the beauty of the teeth;
  • Reduce sensitivity of teeth and gums;
  • Prevent the machined tooth from moving out of place.

Medpaltrip is by your side through every step of the way.

Postoperative Care

Temporary Crown

  • Do not eat for half an hour after the installation;
  • Avoid eating hard, sticky foods;
  • Contact your dentist if the temporary crown breaks or comes off;
  • It is important to maintain good hygiene of the temporary crowns. Use a toothbrush and floss to clean it
  • The cement used to glue the temporary crown does not have much adhesion. Floss gently around the temporary crown to remove the temporary veneer.

Permanent Crown

  • Do not eat for two hours after the installation is done.
  • Avoid sticky foods and eat with the other side of your mouth for 24 hours. It is also best to avoid hard foods during this time and use soft foods such as soups and liquids.
  • If the hygiene is not maintained, the border between the veneer and the tooth may rot. That is why it is very important to use a toothbrush and floss after veneering.
  • See your dentist regularly, every six months. At these visits, the dentist examines the teeth and the crown. In this way, any problems and decay will be identified and eliminated in the early stages.
  • If your teeth have not undergone root canal treatment, they may be sensitive to hot and cold materials for several weeks after installing the crown. This sensitivity usually goes away after a few weeks. Contact your dentist if the allergy does not go away or the toothache gets worse.
  • Although porcelain is very strong, there is still the possibility of cracking due to sudden temperature changes and high pressure on the teeth. Try to avoid these as much as possible.
