What is a zirconium crowns?
At Elite Clinic, we offer zirconium crowns as a strong and durable option for our patients. Made from zirconium dioxide, a white
powdered ceramic material, these crowns are milled from a single block, making them a robust dental prosthetic. The strength of zirconium
crowns also allows for thinner crowns than those made with metals.
Zirconium crowns are a type of dental crown that is made from a material called zirconium oxide. This material is strong, durable, and
biocompatible, similar to titanium in its properties.
It is a white, translucent material that can be used to create natural-looking dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, and implant
One of the main advantages of zirconium crowns is their aesthetics. They have a natural-looking appearance, similar to that of a natural
tooth, due to their white color and translucency.
They are also highly resistant to stains and discolorations, making them a popular choice for patients who want a more esthetic solution. The procedure for getting a zirconium crown is similar to that of other types of dental crowns. First, the tooth is prepared by removing any
decay and shaping it to make room for the crown.
An impression of the tooth is taken and sent to a dental lab, where the zirconium crown will be fabricated. A temporary crown is placed on
the tooth to protect it until the permanent crown is ready. On the second appointment, the permanent zirconium crown is cemented over
At Elite Clinic, zirconium crowns are suitable for patients who have a high esthetic demand and want a natural-looking tooth replacement. They are also suitable for people with metal allergies and are a good alternative to PFM (porcelain fused to metal) crowns. However, zirconium crowns can be more expensive than other types of crowns.
It’s important to maintain good oral hygiene and have regular dental checkups to ensure the longevity of the crown. As with all dental
restorations, it’s important to be mindful of biting and chewing habits and to avoid eating hard or sticky foods, which can cause chipping or
At Elite Clinic, we offer zirconium crowns as a popular option for patients who want a natural-looking, durable, and long-lasting tooth
replacement. Made from zirconium oxide, a strong, durable, and biocompatible material, these crowns are highly resistant to stains and
discolorations, making them an esthetic solution for patients.
Additionally, zirconium crowns are highly durable and can withstand the forces of biting and chewing, making them a good option for
patients who have large cavities, weak or damaged teeth, or who have had root canal therapy.
They are also highly resistant to wear and tear and can last for many years with proper care.
Furthermore, zirconium crowns are a good choice for patients who have a metal allergy or who are concerned about the appearance of
metal in their mouths. Unlike traditional metal crowns, zirconium crowns are metal-free and are not visible when the patient smiles or
opens their mouth.
However, it is important to note that not all patients are suitable for zirconium crowns. Our dentists will evaluate each patient’s dental
condition and overall oral health to determine if zirconium crowns are the best option.
Factors such as the location and size of the tooth, the condition of the surrounding teeth and gums, and the patient’s budget and
preferences will all be taken into consideration before making a recommendation.
Overall, zirconium crowns are a great alternative to PFM or metal crowns, especially for those who have metal allergies or are concerned
about the appearance of metal in their mouths. At Elite Clinic, we strive to provide our patients with the best possible treatment options to
meet their individual needs.
