Zirconium Crowns

Zirconium veneer is a dental veneer method that dentists have recently recommended to achieve a more aesthetic appearance and to make mouth-tooth functions more functional. Zirconium Teeth has always manifested itself in the form of porcelain veneer. Porcelain teeth, which are applied in two different ways as “metal-supported tooth coating” and “metal-free tooth coating”, have begun to produce different coating methods due to the increased perception of aesthetics over time.

Zirconia Crowns in Turkey

What is a Zirconia Crown?

A zirconia crown is a type of dental cap predominantly made from zirconium dioxide, a highly durable and strong material. This modern solution in dental restoration is renowned for its robustness, significantly surpassing the strength of traditional porcelain crowns. As a leading choice for restoring damaged teeth, zirconia crowns not only offer exceptional longevity but also provide a natural, tooth-like appearance.

Types of Zirconia Crowns

Zirconia crowns come in various forms, each designed to cater to different dental needs:

  • Monolithic Zirconia Crowns: Known for their extraordinary strength, these crowns are ideal for restoring molars, where the force of chewing is greatest.
  • Layered Zirconia Crowns: These involve a zirconia base layered with porcelain, offering enhanced aesthetic appeal, making them suitable for front teeth restoration.
  • Full-Contour Zirconia Crowns: Combining strength and aesthetics, full-contour crowns are crafted entirely from zirconia and are aesthetically pleasing for visible teeth.

Advantages of Zirconia Crowns

  • Durability: Zirconia’s resistance to cracking and chipping makes these crowns exceptionally long-lasting.
  • Aesthetics: Mimicking the translucency and color of natural teeth, zirconia crowns blend seamlessly into your smile.
  • Biocompatibility: Zirconia is hypoallergenic, making it a safe option for patients with metal allergies or sensitivities.
  • Precision Fit: Advanced CAD/CAM technology used in crafting zirconia crowns ensures a precise, custom fit.

Why Choose Turkey for Your Zirconia Crown?

Quality of Dental Care in Turkey

Turkey, a burgeoning center for medical tourism, is renowned for its exceptional dental care, particularly in the field of advanced dental restorations like zirconia crowns. This reputation stems from a few key factors:

  • Expertise of Dentists: Turkish dental professionals are highly trained and experienced, often with international qualifications and exposure. Their expertise is especially notable in the precise fitting and cementing of zirconia crowns, ensuring optimal results for patients.
  • State-of-the-Art Technology: Turkey’s dental clinics are equipped with the latest in dental technology, including computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) systems. This modern technology is crucial for crafting high-quality zirconia crowns that offer both aesthetic and functional benefits.

Cost-Effectiveness of Zirconia Crowns in Turkey

When it comes to cost, Turkey presents a compelling case for patients seeking zirconia crowns:

  • Affordable Yet High-Quality: The cost of zirconia crowns in Turkey is considerably lower compared to many Western countries. However, this affordability does not come at the expense of quality. Patients can expect high-grade zirconia materials, such as German zirconia, used in their dental procedures.
  • Comparative Analysis: On average, the price of a zirconia crown in Turkey is significantly less than in the USA, UK, or many European countries, making it a financially attractive option for international patients.

Success Stories: Testimonials from International Patients

The success of dental treatments in Turkey is best illustrated through the experiences of international patients. Many have shared their positive experiences, highlighting the professionalism of the dental teams, the seamless process from consultation to aftercare, and their satisfaction with the results of their zirconia crowns.

The Zirconia Crown Procedure

Consultation and Candidate Requirements

The journey towards a zirconia crown begins with an initial consultation, a crucial step in determining candidacy for this dental procedure. Suitable candidates typically exhibit the following criteria:

  • Structural Tooth Damage: Ideal for those with broken, worn, or severely decayed teeth.
  • Dental Aesthetics Improvement: Suitable for patients seeking aesthetic enhancement of their smile.
  • Oral Health Status: Good overall oral health is essential, with no active gum disease.

Step-by-Step Procedure

The procedure for fitting a zirconia crown is meticulous and involves several key steps:

  1. Initial Assessment: A thorough examination of the patient’s dental health, including X-rays if necessary.
  2. Tooth Preparation: Reshaping the affected tooth to accommodate the crown.
  3. Impression Taking: Creating a detailed impression of the prepared tooth and adjacent teeth.
  4. Crown Fabrication: The impression is sent to a lab where the zirconia crown is custom-made using CAD/CAM technology.
  5. Temporary Crown Fitting: A temporary crown is fitted while the permanent zirconia crown is being made.
  6. Permanent Crown Fitting: Once ready, the zirconia crown is carefully fitted, adjusted, and cemented in place.

Preparing for the Procedure

To ensure the best outcomes, patients are advised to:

  • Maintain Oral Hygiene: Keeping teeth and gums healthy prior to the procedure.
  • Discuss Medications: Informing the dentist about any current medications.
  • Arrange for Post-Procedure Care: Planning for rest and recovery after the crown placement.

Risks and Complications

While zirconia crown procedures are generally safe and effective, as with any dental treatment, there are potential risks involved. These may include:

  • Tooth Sensitivity: Some patients may experience sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures following the placement of a zirconia crown.
  • Crown Misfit or Discomfort: Improperly fitted crowns can cause discomfort or issues with bite alignment.
  • Gum Tissue Reaction: In rare cases, gum tissues may react to the new crown, leading to swelling or discomfort.
  • Ceramic Wear or Chipping: Though zirconia is highly durable, the ceramic portion can sometimes chip or wear over time.

Precautionary Measures

To mitigate these risks, clinics, especially those affiliated with Medicoist and Şafak Hospitals Group, adhere to stringent safety protocols:

  • Thorough Consultation and Planning: Detailed pre-procedure consultations are conducted to ensure suitability and minimize the risk of complications.
  • Precision in Crown Fabrication: Utilizing advanced CAD/CAM technology ensures that each zirconia crown is crafted with exact precision, reducing the likelihood of misfit or discomfort.
  • Expert Fitting and Adjustment: Skilled dental professionals meticulously fit and adjust the crown, ensuring optimal comfort and functionality.
  • Post-Procedure Follow-Up: Regular follow-up appointments are recommended to monitor the crown and address any issues promptly.

At Medicoist, in collaboration with Şafak Hospitals Group, we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of safety and quality. Our team of experts uses the best materials and technologies available, such as high-quality German zirconia and cutting-edge CEREC systems, to deliver not just a treatment, but a transformation with the utmost care and precision.

Post-Procedure Care and Recovery

After the placement of a zirconia crown, patients generally experience a smooth and brief recovery period. Key aspects include:

  • Immediate Aftercare: Mild sensitivity or discomfort around the treated area is common but typically subsides within a few days.
  • Follow-Up Visits: Scheduled post-procedure appointments are crucial to ensure the proper fit and function of the crown.

Do’s and Don’ts After Treatment

To ensure optimal healing and longevity of the zirconia crown, patients are advised to adhere to the following guidelines:


  • Maintain Oral Hygiene: Regular brushing and flossing are essential to keep the crown and surrounding teeth healthy.
  • Eat Soft Foods Initially: After the procedure, sticking to softer foods can help in minimizing discomfort.
  • Use a Night Guard if Necessary: For patients who grind their teeth, a night guard can protect the crown from excessive wear.


  • Avoid Hard or Sticky Foods: Biting down on hard items can damage the crown.
  • Refrain from Smoking: Smoking can impede healing and negatively affect the longevity of the crown.
  • Skip Oral Hygiene Routine: Neglecting regular dental care can lead to problems with both natural teeth and the crown.

Alternatives to Zirconia Crowns

Other Dental Crown Materials

While zirconia crowns are a popular choice, there are several other materials available for dental crowns, each with its unique properties. These include:

  • Porcelain Crowns: Known for their natural appearance and excellent color match to adjacent teeth.
  • Ceramic Crowns: Similar to porcelain, offering a high degree of aesthetic appeal.
  • Gold Crowns: Durable and strong, gold crowns are often recommended for back teeth.
  • PFM (Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal) Crowns: Combining the strength of metal with the aesthetics of porcelain.

Comparing Alternatives

Each dental crown material has its advantages and drawbacks:

Porcelain and Ceramic Crowns

  • Pros: Excellent cosmetic appearance, strong, and biocompatible.
  • Cons: May wear down opposing teeth more than metal or resin crowns.

Gold Crowns

  • Pros: High durability, less tooth structure needs to be removed, and better wear on opposing teeth.
  • Cons: Aesthetic limitations due to color.

PFM Crowns

  • Pros: Stronger than all-porcelain crowns, better aesthetic than all-metal crowns.
  • Cons: Porcelain portion can chip or break off, and the metal can show through as a dark line.
