Zirconia crown - an ultra-modern and super effective solution to replace missing teeth, will smile more often and squint the other.

The zirconia crown was first used in the dental clinic of the University of Zurich (Switzerland) in 1998 and has grown in popularity ever since.

Zirconia crown is also called zirconium crown, zirconium oxide crown, zirconia sheath, zirconia teeth.

Material used in the manufacture of zirconium oxide crowns

Because of its name, many patients believe that the target is made entirely in zirconia. But in reality only the inner part is made of this material, but the outer part is made in ceramics. The combination of these materials offers high resistance to the teeth and an aesthetic quality that cannot be compared with other dental crowns.

The crown in zirconia has the following advantages:

A bridge in zirconia ceramic and plaster models. Zirconium crowns are more than a metal ceramic, but up to 50% more durable;

Zirconia oxide teeth are absolutely compatible with the human body. It is not metal and does not cause any allergies;

The white color of zirconium allows the crowns to be worn longer. With these crowns, the metal will never be visible, even if it is removed from the gum or cracked a broken piece of pottery;

Zirconium coating limits the adhesion of dental plaque;

Zirconium oxide is not transparent to light compared to pure porcelain, so gray teeth can also become very aesthetic when coated.

The zirconia crown also has a low thermal conductivity (because it does not contain metal parts), so you can eat hot food or cold without testing the uncomfortable sensations from the temperature.


Disadvantages of zirconia crown:

The only disadvantage of zirconium oxide is its high cost compared to metal-ceramic or pure ceramic (see prices for dental crowns). This is due to the expensive material, very complex and complex manufacturing technology, which requires a high level of dental prosthesis with appropriate skills.

The use of zirconia represents an important stage for the future of aesthetic dentistry. This material is very well accepted by every institution, integrates seamlessly into patients' smiles and has been successfully used in many modern dental clinics to perform zirconia dental crowns, an unrivaled aesthetic.

This technique is becoming increasingly popular in the esthetic dentistry industry at large and will increase in popularity significantly.

Zirconia is a chemical element with atomic number 40 and symbol ZR. It is a very hard metal that is corrosion resistant and very similar to steel. Zircon is mainly used in the coating of nuclear reactors, the chemical industry, jewelry, the manufacture of cutting blades, etc.
