A crown on the tooth or molar
A crown is used as replacement of a tooth or molar. A crown is like a cap which is placed over a tooth. The cap can be made from porcelain, ceramics, metal or gold. The crown is fixed on the tooth or molar. This will restore the tooth or molar as much as possible to its original shape and functionality. A crown treatment is more extensive than a standard filling or veneers for a tooth.
When do you need a dental crown?
• When fillings do not belong to the possibilities anymore, for example in case of tooth decay or a broken molar. There isn’t a lot of tooth or molar left over to place a filling.
• Almost always the dentist will recommend you to have crowns (in the future) after a root canal treatment.
• To cover misshaped or severely discolored teeth
How long does a crown last?
Dental crowns and bridges can last 5 to 10 years or even longer. There are many factors that can affect the longevity of a crown. Good dental hygiene and regular dental visits can extend the longevity of your crowns and bridges, significantly. From which material the crown is made and its quality also play a role in this.

What is a bridge?
A bridge is placed if more teeth or molars are missing. It looks like a connection between the already existing teeth. A bridge at DentalZorg is usually made of porcelain in our own dental laboratory.
A bridge is placed by means of two pillars. Pillars are ground and modified teeth and / or molars which are secured by means of crowns. There is a bridge intermediate section between the pillars. This is also called a dummy. This intermediate section consists of artificial teeth or molars which come in place of the missing teeth and molars.
Which type of bridges are there?
- Traditional bridge.This is the most common bridge where the pillars are located on either side of the open space.
- Cantilever bridge. Both pillars are situated on one side of the bridge.
- Maryland bonded bridges. This is usually possible when the teeth on both sides of the open space are virtually intact. For this construction hardly anything has to be ground from the intact teeth. The Maryland bonded bridge is mainly used to replace one or two teeth. The bridge is glued invisibly to the inside of the teeth by means of metal mounting plates with a special adhesive. A Maryland bonded bridge can usually be removed quite easily if necessary.
Difference between crowns and veneers
There is quite a big difference between crowns and veneers. Crowns completely replace the tooth or molar. In case of veneers, a layer of tooth-colored material is glued on your tooth or molar. Veneers are generally recommended in case of a crack, burst, crooked teeth, broken or chipped teeth or discoloration of the teeth.
Crown or bridge on implants
It is possible that there is no chance that your tooth or molar could be saved. A crown on an implant might be the perfection solution for the replacement of your tooth or molar. Within in DentalZorg there is no need for a dental referral to make an appointment for a dental implant treatment. We have our own dentist-implantologist who is available in Amsterdan Noord and Zaandam.
Do you have your own dentist? But they don’t have the facilities for dental implantological treatments? Then we would like to help you. You can visit us. There is no need for any dental referral.

The rates of a crown on a tooth or molar
It is of course very nice if you know the costs for a crown- or bridge-treatment beforehand. Just like a crown, the costs depend on the type of treatment. The reimbursement depends on your additional health insurer. Generally, the costs for a bridge are higher due to a bridge consisting of more teeth or molars. We would like to help you making these costs more clear for you. Below you can find an overview of the rates.
Is you crown treatment reimbursed?
Based on your dental insurance, we can see whether your crown treatment is reimbursed or even free of costs. This partially depends on your additional dental insurance. Do you have an additional dentist insurance? The more important it is to be well informed. Because crowns are basically not reimbursed within a basic insurance. At the bottom of this page you will find an overview of the costs for crowns and bridge work, determined by the NZa.
