Porcelain Crowns: Aesthetic Excellence at formedi clinic, Antalya, Turkey

What are Porcelain Crowns?

Porcelain crowns are custom-made caps designed to cover a damaged or aesthetically displeasing tooth, restoring its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crafted from high-quality ceramic materials, these crowns mimic the translucency and colour of natural teeth, making them an ideal choice for front tooth restoration or any teeth visible when you smile.

How Does the Porcelain Crown Procedure Work?

The procedure for installing a porcelain crown typically involves two visits to Formedi Clinic. During your first visit, our dental specialists prepare the tooth by carefully reshaping it to ensure a perfect fit for the crown. Impressions of your tooth are then taken and sent to a dental lab where your custom crown is crafted. A temporary crown is placed to protect the tooth while your permanent crown is being made. On your second visit, the temporary crown is removed, and the new porcelain crown is securely bonded to your tooth, instantly enhancing your smile and bite.
