A crown on a molar or tooth

A crown is intended as a replacement for a tooth or molar. A crown consists of a cap that fits exactly over the tooth, as it were. This cap is made of porcelain, ceramic, metal or gold. The crown is fixed to the tooth or molar. This gives the tooth or molar its original shape and functionality as much as possible. A crown treatment is more extensive than a standard filling or veneers for a tooth.

When can you opt for a crown?

  • When filling is no longer possible, for example in case of tooth decay or a broken molar. There is, as it were, too little tooth or more molar to place a filling.
  • The dentist will almost always advise you to have a crown (in the future) after a root canal treatment.
  • With a completely discolored tooth where veneers are not possible. This may be due to the condition of the tooth.

How long does a crown last?

Dental crowns can basically last 5 to 10 years or more. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits can extend the life of your crowns.

The difference between a crowns and veneers

There is a significant difference between crowns and veneers. Where with a crown the entire tooth or molar is replaced, with a veneer a layer of tooth-colored material will be stuck on your tooth or molar. In general, veneers are more often advised in the event of a crack, fissure, crooked teeth or discoloration of the teeth.

Difference Between Crowns and Bridges

Where a crown is placed as a cap over a single tooth or molar, a bridge is the solution when you want to replace several teeth or molars. A bridge actually consists of several crowns joined together. So both have the same goal. Do you need bridges for multiple teeth or molars in a row? Then you can find more information about installing a bridge here.

Crown on implant

Place a crown on an implant

It is possible that your tooth or molar is beyond salvage. An implant crown is a possible solution for the replacement of your tooth. Within DentalZorg you do not need a referral letter to make an appointment for implantological treatment. We have our own dental implantologist who works in Amsterdam Noord and Zaandam.

Do you have your own dentist but are you unable to go to your own practice for implantological treatment? Then you can also contact us. You do not need to be referred for this.

The costs for a crown on a tooth or molar

It is of course nice if you know in advance what the costs are of a crown treatment. As with a crown, the costs depend on the type of treatment. The reimbursement depends on your (supplementary) dental insurance. We are happy to help you clarify these costs. Here you will find an overview of a crown.

Is your crown treatment reimbursed?

Based on your dental insurance, we can check whether your crown treatment is reimbursed or even free of charge. This partly depends on your additional dental insurance. Do you not have additional dental insurance? Then it is all the more important to be well informed beforehand. A crown is by default not reimbursed from the basic insurance. At the very bottom of this page you will find an overview of the costs for crowns and bridgework, determined by the NZa.
