What are dental implants and how do they work
Dental implants are a way of replacing your missing teeth to give your jawbones some solid structure. The implant screw acts like the root of your tooth. Implants screws are made of titanium and they have different healing coatings on them. These coatings alter the healing time and therefore the cost of the implant.
The implant screws implemented into your jawbone and healing time can be anything from 3 to 6-months. 3-months healing is the most common if you do not need any bone grafting. If you have bone grafting then the healing time is at least 6-months. Bone grafting is required if you have bone loss in your jawbone due to not being used in the process of chewing food.
What is the difference between Zirconium, E-max crowns, and metal fused porcelain crowns?
There are three main crown types when it comes to doing a smile makeover or teeth repairs.
E-max Crowns: These crowns are made of a solid cube of pure porcelain and these crowns are at the top of the price range. These crowns are best for an esthetic look and mostly used for a beautiful white smile such as a Hollywood smile.
Zirconium Crowns: These crowns are made of a white metal core layered with porcelain. These crowns are in the middle of the price range. These crowns are also very good for an aesthetic look and mostly used for a beautiful white smile as well.
Porcelain Fused Metal Crowns: These crowns are made of a grey metal core layered with porcelain. These crowns are not as esthetic looking as the other two crown types but they are very strong and are mostly used at the rear of the mouth for the purpose of chewing your food.
Dental treatments available in Turkey at affordable prices: There are a number of clinics offering top-class dental treatments in Turkey at about a third of the cost that you would pay in the U.K. or Europe.

How long will my treatment take?
Treatments can take anything from 7-days to 3 to 6-months. Cosmetic dentistry that does not consist of implants and just crowns can be finished within 5-days. As it is mentioned in the [implant blog] this treatment can take 3 to 6-months from start to finish.
