The fitting of a dental crown is divided into several phases, the completion time of which may vary depending on the place of manufacture of the dental crown and the additional care required.
The dental crown makes it possible to replace the upper part of the tooth (the visible part). When the dental crown is fixed on a tooth that is still present, it is fixed by cementation directly on the tooth or on a pivot (inlay core, pinlay) when it is too dilapidated. When it is fixed on a dental implant it will be screwed in. The dental crown can be definitive or transient (when care on the gum or pulp is to be carried out and treatment is necessary). The placement of a dental crown can have several objectives, either for the restoration of a damaged tooth or for purely aesthetic reasons.
The tooth is filed down to obtain a stump allowing to receive the future crown. Complementary acts such as caries treatment, devitalization of the tooth or heavy metal decontamination may be necessary. Dentists should try to keep teeth alive and in good condition. It is Anveli's policy, which has carried out several studies on the toxicity of devitalized teeth. An impression is taken either via the old technique (The patient bites into a mold) or by the technology of an intraoral scanner used in Anveli Dental clinics. The use of a scanner allows greater precision and comfort for the patient since the procedure does not last more than one minute. A provisional crown is placed in order so that the patient does not feel pain when the teeth are still alive.
Between the two stages, the work begins for the laboratory which manufactures the dental crowns. Crowns can be made by hand or by computer (Anveli Dental®) and a robot that cuts the dental crown.
The second stage of the placement of a dental crown takes place 4 to 5 days after the treatment of the natural tooth (more when the clinic does not have its own laboratory). During the tests, corrections may be performed in the mouth if the latter is minimal or in the laboratory if they are larger. After that, the dental crown is permanently fixed by cementation. The procedure may require several hours when the number of crowns is important. It is necessary to adjust each point contact in order to obtain a perfect occlusion.
Patients with bruxism (teeth grinding) may be required to wear a splint at night to prevent tearing of the natural teeth and the dental crown. Both phases of treatment are completed in one week thanks to the dental prosthesis laboratory at every Anveli Dental clinic.
The price of a dental crown depends largely on the material used, the country in which it is placed, and the place where it is made. A zirconia dental crown in France costs between € 500 and € 1,500. Dentists in France have their crowns manufactured abroad in order to lower the cost of production. The price of a dental crown in Anveli Dental clinics is:

The difference in prices between our different dental clinics is mainly due to the cost of infrastructure and tax rates. All dental crowns offered by Anveli Dental are manufactured on-site with the best quality Swiss materials and allow adjustments and corrections throughout the process.
The dental crown has been reimbursed up to 120 € by social security since January 1, 2020 regardless of the materials used. The share of coverage by the mutual depends on each organization. For more information, ask for your dental quote and send it to your health insurance company. Dental crowns performed in Anveli Dental clinic are reimbursed by social security in France and Belgium as specified in decree n ° 2005/386 of 19 April 2005 relating to the coverage of care received in a European Union country.

The materials used for a dental crown depend on the available budget, the function, and the tooth on which the crown is placed. For front teeth, Press Emax (all ceramic) will be recommended while for molars and premolars zirconia will be the best solution. Ceramic metal is the cheapest variant but has many disadvantages. (Discoloration of the gum, electrically conductive, weight, aesthetic ...) Resin or acrylic are used for temporary or temporary dental crowns.
For cosmetic dental care, the question often arises between the installation of dental veneers or crowns. The price of the two procedures being substantially identical, the question can be decided after a precise diagnosis concerning in particular the occlusion. If the chewing forces on the front teeth are too pronounced, it will be advisable to place crowns that will cover the entire tooth. If the teeth are not sufficiently well aligned, the dental crown may also be preferred. The dental veneer will be preferred when the teeth are sufficiently well aligned and the occlusion allows it.
Anveli Dental has its own AnveLab laboratory. It is located within the clinic itself. The crowns are made in front of the patients since the laboratory is located in front of the waiting room behind a bay window. This is the concept of Anveli Dental transparency.
The fitting of a dental crown is an act without major risk however it requires a good realization in order to guarantee the durability of the tooth in the future. Indeed, in the event of bad fixation or bad realization of the dental crown, the tooth can be permanently damaged. For this reason, Anveli has a laboratory within the dental clinic where the patient can perform the tests and measurements necessary for a perfect realization of a dental crown. Anveli Dental also has 3D equipment in order to produce dental crowns without metal or allergenic materials.
The manufacturing of dental crowns has evolved a lot in recent years. It is even the field of activity of dentistry that has evolved the most. Whether it is dental prostheses in implantology or for the treatment of natural teeth, the work of a technician is now more akin to that of a computer scientist. Although there are still laboratories where dental crowns are made by hand, the use of scanners and CAD-CAM (3D printing system) has made it possible to obtain precision levels of the order of a micron. Anveli Dental works with the most modern robotic systems for several types of materials. The E-max ceramic press for the ceramic crown, the CAD-CAM for the zircon and the ceramic bi-composite, and the 3D printer for the provisional teeth.
