Crown Veneer

Curon is the process of covering teeth that are severely damaged and in danger of fracture or aesthetically disturbing the individual. In cases where one or more teeth are missing, a crown is made using other teeth. It is used to correct the appearance, shape or alignment of a damaged tooth or teeth. The crown is placed over the implant to provide a tooth-like shape or structure.

Crown Veneer

Crowns, also known as veneers, are mostly used in cases where filling is insufficient for decayed or broken teeth. The damaged part of the tooth is reinforced by wrapping or holding it together. While metal and zirconium can be used in the lower structure, porcelain is used in the upper part. Crowns, which strengthen the damaged parts of the tooth, can be applied to broken or decayed teeth as well as discolored or deformed teeth.

What is the Function of Curons?

Crowns are used to completely cover damaged teeth. In addition to strengthening the damaged tooth, a crown can also be used to improve its appearance, shape or alignment. A crown can also be placed over an implant to provide a tooth-like shape and structure to fulfill its function. 

Porcelain or ceramic crowns can also be produced in the natural color of the tooth. Materials such as gold and metal alloys, acrylic or ceramic can also be used. These alloys are generally stronger than porcelain and are recommended for posterior teeth. Porcelain with a metal base can be used because it is strong and attractive. Situations where Crown veneers may be recommended are as follows:

  • When there is not enough tooth volume for filling, 
  • To prevent cracking in weak teeth,
  • To repair a broken tooth,
  • To build a bridge
  • To cover dental implants
  • To cover yellowed or deformed teeth
  • To close a tooth with root canal treatment

What are the Types of Curon?

Crown types; metal supported porcelain crown, zirconium crown, empress crown, porcelain crown are divided into 4 types.

Empress Crown Veneer

Empress crowns provide a natural appearance without the use of any metal material. This type of coating, which has a very high light transmittance due to being one of the coating types, is prepared by placing glass ceramic on the ceramic piece. In this way, its durability can correspond to much higher rates. We will address all the questions about this dental coating method, which is an ideal option for patients who want an aesthetic and natural tooth appearance. But first, let's consider which patients can benefit from this procedure.

Porcelain Crown Veneer

Porcelain crown veneer, which is a permanent coating type, is applied on the tooth. Teeth with excessive loss of material are protected with porcelain crown treatment. Porcelain crown treatment can also be applied to meet the demands of people who want to change the shape and color of their teeth for aesthetic reasons. Problematic teeth are covered with porcelain-containing materials in the form of teeth. Porcelain veneers vary according to the material inside. Metal-porcelain and all-porcelain crowns are the most common types.

Zirconium Crown Veneer

Zirconium-based porcelains are the most preferred type because they are more aesthetic than other types. This type of coating, which has better light transmittance than other types, is also preferred in terms of smile aesthetics. Zirconium crown is a durable, robust and natural dental coating method that gives effective results in dental aesthetics. With zirconium crown, tooth loss is eliminated and a healthy smile is obtained.

How to Apply Curon

Before the application of crown veneers, the person is examined by a specialist doctor. Then, in order to avoid any problems, if there is any decay or residue on the teeth to be treated, they are cleaned and the teeth are cut and made ready for bonding the veneers. 
To prevent sensitivity during this period, impressions are taken and temporary veneers are applied. The rehearsal of the tooth-colored teeth prepared in the laboratory and selected by the individuals is done in the last examination and the bite of the teeth is checked. With the approval of the individuals, the veneers are permanently bonded.
