The dental crown is a popular and effective solution for replacing an injured or missing tooth. The most important requirement for the insertion of dental crowns is the presence of a tooth root. This tooth root can be from the original tooth or it can be implemented as an artificial tooth root. A crown is usually placed on the remaining part of the damaged tooth. Metal crowns and veneer crowns are mostly attached with a medical cement. In contrast, a plastic adhesive is used for ceramic crowns. In the case of very badly damaged teeth, a pin tooth can also be used. The post is taken when the tooth stump is so damaged that it no longer offers enough support for the crown. The pen itself is usually made of metal or fiberglass and is then attached with a special plastic.

The first appointment:

taking the impression

In order for the new tooth crown to fit seamlessly into the patient's teeth, an impression of the teeth must be taken with an impression material (usually silicone-containing). When the impression material has hardened, the dental technician uses it as the basis for shaping a custom-made tooth crown. With the help of a true-to-original model of the dentition, the precise interaction of the upper and lower jaw on the crown can be ensured. This is very important because the smallest irregularities on the bite surfaces are extremely annoying and can hinder chewing.

As additional information, the dentist determines the individual shade of white of the neighboring teeth so that the finished tooth crown adapts to the immediate surroundings as inconspicuously as possible. During the manufacturing period, the patient is given a temporary plastic crown to protect the tooth stump.


The second appointment:

Insert and glue

The insertion and bonding of the tooth crown is then carried out under local anesthesia at a follow-up appointment at the dentist. After the temporary restoration has been removed, the dentist thoroughly cleans the remaining tooth stump. The new tooth crown is fitted and fixed. If necessary, small readjustments can be made to the dentures afterwards. The dentist can also use this opportunity to determine whether the crown is causing pressure or pain. A routine check-up usually takes place a few weeks after the crown has been inserted.

Which material is the right one?


When deciding which material to make the crown of, the advice of the dentist is of vital importance. Because every tooth is exposed to different loads and therefore a certain material is recommended in each case. The presence of an allergy also plays an important role in the choice of material. For aesthetic reasons, surfaces that stand out from the tooth color should not be used for visible teeth. Last but not least, the choice of material is also a question of cost. Because there are considerable differences in the amount of the necessary additional payment.


The fully cast metal crown is very durable, relatively inexpensive and particularly resilient. Because of its striking color, it is usually used for the less visible area of ​​the molars. Due to the relatively thin walls of the cast crown, a higher proportion of the natural tooth substance can be retained. In the case of sensitive teeth, the high thermal diffusivity may become a problem. Fully cast crowns are available as gold crowns or as crowns made from non-precious alloys , for example with chrome and cobalt.

All-plastic crowns are well tolerated and inexpensive. However, they tend to discolour over time, are pressure-sensitive and do not last long. The all-plastic crown can therefore hardly be considered as a full-fledged denture.

All-ceramic crowns are also well tolerated and insulate sensitive teeth better against cold and heat than, for example, a metal crown. Electrochemical reactions cannot occur in the mouth either. On the other hand, the durability of this tooth crown usually does not quite reach the level of a metal crown. Another strength of the all-ceramic crown is its ability to adapt well to the shade of the natural neighboring teeth. A significant disadvantage is the high cost.

The veneer crown consists of a metal substructure with a tooth-colored veneer either made of plastic or ceramic. Their durability is very good. The aesthetic effect is convincing apart from a small visible metal edge on the gums. However, the additional veneer results in thicker crown walls and thus a higher loss of healthy tooth substance. In the case of plastic veneers, discoloration is possible over time. The cost burden for the patient is in the medium range. Veneer crowns in the visible part of the dentition are part of the standard care provided by health insurance companies.



These are the advantages and disadvantages of dental crowns


A crown can often save severely damaged teeth and protect them from renewed caries formation. But there are also disadvantages. In order to attach the crown, part of the natural tooth substance must first be ground. The tooth nerve can be damaged during this work. Caries formation occurs even more frequently if the crown was not made to fit perfectly. Incidentally, a tooth crown only has a limited shelf life. This means that after a few years it has to be replaced - but then the tooth has to be regrinded again. In the end it can happen that the crown can no longer be properly attached and ultimately the tooth has to be extracted.


Proper care is of course very important for the long life of the crown. The edge of the tooth crown, which hits the gums, is particularly sensitive and needs special care. You can also take good care of the spaces between the teeth with dental floss and an interdental brush. With proper oral hygiene, a tooth crown will last 10 to 15 years.



How long does a crown last?


Dental crowns have an average shelf life of five to fifteen years. However, factors such as regular teeth cleaning and thorough oral hygiene play a significant role here. The special area of ​​application of the respective crown also ensures differences.


The veneered crown is the most common type of artificial crown. Well-maintained veneer crowns can last for more than twenty years. Ceramic veneers are generally more resilient and have a lower tendency to discolour than plastic veneers.


Full cast metal crowns are also extremely durable and long-lasting. This applies to both base metals and gold alloys.


All-ceramic crowns , including mantle or jacket crowns, do not quite reach the service life of a metal crown with or without veneer. Only all-ceramic crowns made of zirconium have a comparable durability.


All-plastic crowns have a poor durability and tend to wear out a lot. They are more suitable as long-term temporary restorations and not as full-fledged dentures.
