Dental crowns

Restoring a natural and attractive smile

Time for a review?

Consultations, examination, cleaning and whitening of teeth.

Dental crowns are fixed prosthetic restorations that restore satisfaction and self-confidence to patients. The role of dental covers is not only aesthetic, but also functional, as they protect weak and damaged teeth or serve as a complete replacement of visible parts of teeth that are placed on dental implants.

The advantage of dental crowns is that they provide patients with a beautiful smile in a short time, and they are a permanent solution to missing teeth.

In a couple of visits, you can have a completely new, perfect smile.

In the Balenović Clinic, two types of dental crowns are made.

Metal-ceramic dental crowns

In the case of tooth covers made of a combination of metal and ceramic, the construction is metal and a ceramic part is added to it, which ensures an aesthetically beautiful appearance of the teeth.

The advantage of metal-ceramic crowns is strength due to the metal construction and they are usually recommended for molars.

Zircon-ceramic dental crowns

In all-ceramic crowns, the most commonly used material is zircon, which best imitates the naturalness of teeth and is the most aesthetically attractive variant of crowns.

The advantage of dental crowns made of zircon-ceramics is the use of top-quality materials that best imitate the natural beauty of teeth, and thanks to the white crown, there is no dark edge when receding the gums.

Are you a candidate for dental crowns?

Dental crowns solve many defects in the teeth. The candidates are all dissatisfied with their teeth because they have lost aesthetics or functionality due to breakage, damage, caries, wear and tear over the years, poor dental treatment or they simply want to improve the color, shape or size of their teeth.

How to prepare for the procedure?

The first step is a preliminary examination at the Balenović Clinic, which is free. After examining and analyzing the patient’s current condition and wishes, the dentist will prepare a therapy proposal that will provide the patient with the best possible smile.

Damaged teeth, teeth damaged by caries, and endodontically treated teeth must be completely examined, repaired and healthy before the procedure, because the tooth on which the crown is placed must be healthy.


What does the procedure look like?

The operation is completely painless because it is performed under local anesthesia. The teeth are prepared by grinding the tooth surfaces in order to reshape the tooth for the cover. A precise impression is taken of the patients, according to which the dental technicians will make dental crowns in the laboratory, which takes 3 to 4 days. The shape and size of the dental crown must match the adjacent teeth in order to fit in completely and look natural.

Dental impressions are taken at the Balenović Clinic with the most modern intraoral scanner, which speeds up and facilitates the entire preparation and fabrication process. Modern digital dentistry facilitates communication with the patient, who can follow every step in the process of creating his future smile. During the scan, the patient sees the current state of his teeth on the screen, but also how the teeth will look at the end. After scanning, the image is sent to the dental laboratory and the dental technician can immediately start working on the design of the dental crowns.

The Balenović Clinic uses the Trios 3 scanner from the company 3Shape, which is currently one of the best scanners on the market and ensures perfect precision of prosthetic works.

Thanks to digitization in dentistry, scanning makes it easier to achieve the high aesthetic and functional requirements of every dental case. The scanner of the latest generation also requires special education and training that all team members who work with the intraoral scanner in the office undergo.


After preparing the teeth by grinding, patients receive temporary crowns until the final dental crowns are ready. Temporary crowns have the role of protecting ground teeth from sensitivity and ensuring a complete smile while the process of making the crowns takes place. After making the final crowns, the dentist places the crowns and checks whether the crowns match the desired appearance. Upon confirmation, the dental crowns are permanently cemented and polished, which completes the dental crown installation procedure.

In case the patient is missing a part of the tooth, it is necessary to make an extension to strengthen and upgrade the tooth so that a dental cover can be placed.

Recovery after the procedure

Dental crowns are a quick and effective solution to missing teeth. After placement, patients immediately return to all their regular activities. In case of discomfort or pain, as possible and normal, patients are recommended to take painkillers. The risks of swelling and bleeding are rare since the installation of dental crowns is a non-invasive and completely painless procedure.

Frequently asked questions

Dental crowns are fixed prosthetic restorations that restore satisfaction and self-confidence to patients. The role of dental crowns is not only aesthetic, but also functional, as they protect weak and damaged teeth or serve as a complete replacement of visible parts of teeth that are placed on dental implants.

Which crowns to choose?

The doctor of dentistry at Ordinacija Balenović creates an individual therapy plan for each patient and recommends which material and technique to use for the best results. Patients can choose the material from which the crowns are made, depending on their wishes and possibilities. Metal-ceramics are affordable and ensure good stability, durability, and aesthetic appearance. Ceramic crowns are the most similar to natural teeth, and due to the high-quality zircon material, they are the best choice for everyone for whom aesthetics is the most important reason for deciding on dental crowns.

What is the lifespan of crowns?

With high-quality dental care, crowns can last forever (which means a period of 10 to 20 years even) because they are made of high-quality materials and the best manufacturing techniques are applied. At the Balenović Practice, every patient receives detailed instructions on how to take care of their teeth, because proper and regular dental hygiene is very important for the durability of dental crowns.

Are zirconia or metal-ceramic crowns better?

Zirconia are always recommended because they are the best, but in cases where this is not possible, metal-ceramic ones are placed, which are extremely strong, durable, and meet the aesthetic requirements for a beautiful smile. Usually, metal-ceramic crowns are recommended to be placed on molars, and zirconia dental crowns are especially recommended for front teeth.

What does maintenance look like?

Dental crowns are maintained just like your own teeth. It is important to regularly and correctly brush your teeth at home, as well as professional cleaning at the dentist twice a year.
