Procedure of a Dental Crown Treatment in Istanbul, Turkey
The first step for your dental crown treatment in Turkey is to send in pictures of your teeth as well as your medical history. Afterwards, there will be an online consultation, during which you will discuss the procedure and the treatment.
Once you arrive in Istanbul, you will come to the dental clinic for a comprehensive dental exam, during which your treating dentist will check the condition of the teeth that needs treatment, including its stability and vitality.
Typically, the exam also include dental X-rays, 3D-images or before and after pictures, impressions and measurements of your teeth. You will also decide the color and material of the crown. In this way, the dental clinic will be able to prepare the crown according to your needs.
Before the crown can be placed, your tooth must be prepared. This requires grinding off part of the natural tooth. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia, so you will not feel any pain. The final step is to place a temporary crown on the tooth.
Your dental crown is usually ready within the next few days. The insertion of the new crown will be performed under local anesthesia. First, the temporary crown will be removed, and the tooth will be cleaned and prepared. After that, the new crown can be placed and fixed. Your dentist will check if the crown causes any pain or sensation of pressure. If necessary, it will be corrected. Finally, you will be informed about aftercare instructions.
