A crown is a dental restoration that completely covers or surrounds a tooth or dental implant and it is typically fixed to the tooth using traditional dental cement. Crowns are frequently used to improve strength or appearance of teeth.
Zirconium crown is an ultra-modern and super-efficient solution to restore teeth, it has many advantages. The crown is not completely made of Zirconium, only the inner part is made of this material, the outside is made of ceramic. The combination of these materials provides high resistance teeth and an aesthetic that cannot be compared with other types of dental crowns.
Zirconia has a very aesthetic effect, which may be important if your new crowns are to be at the front of your mouth and is particularly relevant in cases where the crowns will be seen beside natural teeth.
Zirconium crowns won’t corrode and the normal black gum line that you can see around a porcelain fused metal crown, won’t happen because of the strong ceramic material used.
Also the normal too hot/cold sensations you can feel with other crowns does not normally occur because of the lack of electrical conductivity.
Advantages of Zirconium Crowns:
- This type of crowns and bridgeworks do not corrode
- The normal black gum line seen around porcelain fused metal crowns is non-existent.
- Provides non sensitivity to heat due to non-electrical conductivity capability.
- Stronger teeth and natural looking aesthetic appearance.
- No temperature conduction
- Promotes gum tissue regeneration
Why choose Zirconium Crowns?
Zirconium is biocompatible, non-allergic, non-electrical conductive material with the unique specification of letting light pass through so that the crown appears to be a natural tooth the zirconia metal provides the strength whilst the porcelain provides the outward appearance on a normal tooth. Zirconium crowns allow light to pass through as with a normal tooth giving a natural look, unlike other metal cores which block the light.
The zirconium provides strength while porcelain provides beauty, both give an extraordinary appearance of a natural tooth.
