When considering Dental Crowns in Budapest the main considerations are:


Your Dentist in Budapest

The most important part of the process is to choose the right Dentist for your needs. The best dentist is the one that advises correctly and has the right attitude towards you (the patient) and your dental problem. Good communication skills, compassion and the desire to provide the best treatment possible is a recipe for success.

It goes without saying that if you use one of our dentists in Budapest then we will have a long history with this dentist and we will know that you are in safe hands.


How well the Dental Crowns are made

The success of the Dental Crown is a mixture of several important factors:

  • The patients overall experience must be positive with effective pain management.
  • The expectations of the patient must have been met
  • The crowns must be the correct size and in proportion to the other teeth
  • The shape of the new crown must be perfect and natural looking and exactly how the patient wants.
  • The Colour or Shade of the Dental Crown must be right for the patient.
  • The fitting of the Dental Crown must be good and function must be just right.


The materials used when making your new crowns

The main materials used for dental tourists visiting Budapest when making new dental crowns are:

  • Porcelain fused to metal
  • Porcelain fused to Zirconium
  • Porcelain fused to a Gold Alloy

Porcelain Fused to Metal

This type of crown material is the most common type in the world and is often referred to as a PFM Crown. Whilst this may be the least expensive material available the quality is outstanding from our dentists and dental technicians. Firstly, the crown is a full jacket porcelain crown. This means that the porcelain covers the front, sides and back of the tooth. Some dentists offer cheaper versions where the porcelain only cover the front of the tooth – Not with us!

The crown comprises of a high quality dental porcelain fused to a metal alloy approved for dental use. The porcelain gives the tooth that natural look and the metal gives the tooth strength.

Many patients who come to us have had a bad experience where a black line can be seen at the top of the crown where it meets the gum. Our dental crowns are made in such a way that the porcelain is shouldered over the edge of the metal so no black line can be seen. This amounts to a professionally made dental crown which will last many years.

As with all of our crowns the function will be perfect as well as them being the correct size, shape, colour, shade and will look natural.

Porcelain fused to Zirconium (metal free)

This type of crown is a metal free option and one that is attractive to people who want a slightly higher aesthetic quality from the crowns.

The porcelain is fused to a structure made from zirconia which gives the crown strength. The zirconia is white in colour so a white coloured porcelain fused to a white coloured structure is always going to be good for aesthetics.

Zirconia does cost a little more than PFM crowns. If aesthetics is really important you can discuss the advantages of zirconium crowns and also other types such as Empress or EMAX.

Porcelain fused to Gold

The is the same principle as PFM crown except that the metal is substituted for a Gold Alloy rather than a non-precious metal alloy.
