One of the most chosen materials for dental crowns is Zirconium. Zirconia crowns (or caps) are dental restorations that completely enclose a tooth in order to restore it to its former shape and size. It has several advantages which include:
- Very tough
- Can handle a lot of wear and tear
- Translucent enough to be similar to natural teeth
- Less tooth removal
- No Metal fuse
- Modifiable size, shape and color
- Biocompatible (safe to stay in your mouth a long time)
The aesthetic value of Zirconia crowns is the greatest benefit. It is especially important if the crowns are on the front teeth or near the natural teeth on the front. They also last a very long time and are stronger than porcelain crowns that tend to chip and break.
The capacity of Zirconia crown to be modified according to the set of teeth it will be placed alongside with is very important. The Zirconia crown will not only replace a tooth but it can be shaped so that it will look better than the one it will be replacing with. That’s why you can sport that perfect natural looking smile anytime.
