Zirconium crowns are one of the most important and highly recommended crown types recently. Individuals who want aesthetic artificial teeth prefer zirconium crowns. Patients often wonder about the composition or materials used in the production of zirconium crowns.
Zirconium crowns consist of zirconium oxide or zirconium. Zirconium is a white metal which displays radiopaque features in X-rays. In addition, the tooth color is whiter than that of other treatment options. Unlike conventional metal-based ceramic crowns no unattractive gray line is visible.
Zirconium crowns are known to have a natural appearance. Zirconium crowns are often difficult to distinguish from natural teeth. When metal-based crowns are used, it is recommended to attach zirconium crowns to the teeth to give a more natural appearance to the teeth because the gum line tends to darken.
Zirconium crowns are happily accepted by the tissues in the mouth. Zirconium crowns work really well after the zirconium crown treatment is completed. Zirconium crowns have an equal lifetime compared to normal crowns.
Most dental crowns are corroded by patients during regular use for years. Various fluids and foods consumed over the years cause dental crowns to corrode. Zirconium crowns are not corroded like other dental crown types, which greatly contributes to their longevity.
The latest dental technologies are used successfully in the production of zirconium crowns. The best part is the protection of a large number of natural teeth, which saves a lot of time in the procedure. The dentist only needs to make minimum preparations to install zirconium crowns on the respective teeth.
These crowns are produced with CAD-CAM (Computer Aided Design – Computer Aided Milling) technology, the latest technology in digital dentistry. Therefore, zirconium crowns are of great benefit to individuals who want to get permanent aesthetic solutions for their damaged teeth. Zirconium crowns are one of the best treatment options in modern times.
