Which Dental Crown Is Suitable For Me
Dental crowns are structures attached to envelope a tooth to protect it. Crowns are frequently used to safeguard weak teeth, which are usually the result of extensive decay. Crowns also help to reinforce fractured or badly worn down teeth and restore its original structure, function and appearance. We have also had patients whose teeth were weakened and worn due to bruxism (tooth grinding).
Porcelain, ceramic, metal alloy, or a combination of materials can be used to create a crown. Gold has also been utilised in the past, but few people nowadays like such a flashy look, despite the fact that gold is a very tough substance. Crowns composed of zirconia and resin are the most popular:
Is getting a crown painful?
Having a crown installed is a relatively easy, minor and comfortable procedure. The dentist will prepare your tooth by removing decay, performing a root canal or doing both. He would then take a mould of your tooth to ensure that the crown fits perfectly. The tooth is protected with a temporary restoration until the crown is ready. To keep this temporary cap from cracking, take extra care of it and avoid eating hard or sticky foods. Your dentist will have the crown ready in approximately a week.
Many of our patients have walked out of our clinic with a restored and strengthened tooth, after having a tooth or even several teeth crowned. Visit us a for an obligation-free consultation to determine which crown and its corresponding cost is best suited for you.
Zirconia is a ceramic material that is more durable than porcelain. In compared to composite resins, it is much stronger and more impact resistant. Zirconia is preferred because of its smooth surface, which is kinder on the opposing teeth with which it comes into touch when biting. The cost of a zirconia crown ranges from RM2,000 to RM3,000.
Composite resin crown
Composite resin crowns are made up of several plastic materials. At RM1,000+ each, they are less expensive than zirconia crowns, but they are less durable and do not last as long. Composite resin crowns, on the other hand, are more natural-looking due to the ease with which they can be customised to match the colour of your other teeth, and they are also suitable for those who are allergic to metal.

I had my dental implant surgery done at Beverly Wilshire Dental Clinic with Datin Dr Norma Abd Jalil. I am still astonished at how comfortable the whole procedure was. Not only was it totally painless (honestly!), from start to finish I was given clear information about the procedure and the pricing, all in a very relaxed environment. I cannot recommend the clinic and Datin Dr Norma Abd Jalil highly enough.
While visiting KL, I broke a veneer on my front tooth that required immediate replacement. I found Beverly Wilshire Dental online and scheduled an appointment. They were able to see me the next day and being from North America I was unsure of what to expect. I can gladly report that my experience and the work performed was excellent. My highest compliments to Dr. Tan Ying Yin for her professionalism and for the quality of her work.
I went for a routine scaling and teeth cleaning at this place. I must say, Dr. Tan Ying Yin is very professional and friendly. She explained the entire procedure and was constantly checking if everything was okay throughout the entire procedure. I would definitely recommend this clinic. Thank you Dr. for the excellent and very professional service! 5-stars for sure!
I’m from Vietnam and this is my first time getting my teeth fillings done in Malaysia. I picked Beverly Wilshire Dental and completely satisfied with the service here. Thank you.
Great skill. I had serious teeth alignment issue and my doctor managed to fix it nicely!
Amazing dental centre, amazing people, doctors, and dentists. I took appointment and started my veneer treatment and I was happy with their hygiene standards and I felt so comfortable with the great team there and of course special thanks to Dr Tan and her professional team for answering all my questions and been always present and accommodating.
My treatment was very smooth and I didn’t feel any pain even when they injected me with the needle. it was definitely a great experience and would definitely keep treating my teeth there.
Appointment was right on time, service from the attendants was friendly in total job well done, my teeth shines brighter and I feel better in my mouth.
Very comfortable and friendly. no pain at all for my root canal.
Our 1st visit to the dental centre for my daughter having gum bleeding issue. The appointment arrangement was effortless. I just dropped them a message via Google and they responded quickly in the morning. On the day, the service is cordial. My daughter loves it.
I had a perfect uncomplicated treatment. After another dentist told me that I have to get 6 holes fixed and at least one root treatment done I was looking for another opinion and it was the best decision I've ever made! Had my holes fixed in a short time and happy with the result.
I'm extremely happy with my teeth after having braces done here. Smiling away with confidence. Thanks Beverly Wilshire Dental. Will recommend surely to any searching for dental services. Kudos!!
Easy, considerate staff and doctors. We are international patients and came for a cleaning and 2nd opinion. Our dentist in Hong Kong recommended 2 more crowns, but this dentist saw no issues and only recommended a couple cosmetic options, but did not press for us to get them. Our visit was efficient.
Great team and excellent customer service, I did my teeth whitening using Zoom technology. Very happy with the results and the price was surprisingly very affordable. Keep up the good work guys.
Brought both my kids 2.5year and 7 year for their first appointment. The staff are very nice. Dr was very gentle and understanding. It was a pleasant first experience for them.
