Zirconium Crown

Zirconium dental crown, with its all-white color and resistance to heat, is the ideal dental treatment for patients who are allergic to metal. Zirconium is optically transparent and allows light to flow through instead of blocking it, which results in a more natural and aesthetic look.

Properties of Zirconium Crown 

For the longest time, the usage and application of metal was vast in the field of dentistry and dental aesthetics. However, metal based products are harmful to the gums to a certain degree and they’re never enough to provide the desired aesthetic look. Zirconium crowns have solved all of these problems permanently by bringing about a new age in teeth and gum health and aesthetics. Reducing the usage of metal inside the mouth, instead preferring the all-white zirconium alloy which provides a 100% natural look, will improve your look immensely- especially on the frontal teeth where the importance of appearance is huge. They aren’t even noticed during smiling or talking because of how naturally white they look.

Zirconium crowns are heat resistant, transparent, all-white and quite an ideal treatment for patients who are allergic to metal. Your teeth will no longer be sensitive to heat or cold in this treatment. Discoloring from smoking, coffee or other substances is brought to a minimum with the zirconium crowns. They will not cause a loss or change in taste, and they will not induce breath odor.

Additionally, being highly transmissive to light means no dark coloring on the gums that occurs when metal crowns are used. With metal crowns, it is inevitable that your gums near your teeth will take on blackish or purplish color, the reason being the material used in the crowns and their low transparency. Zirconium will never cause an opaque or blackish look in your mouth. Zirconium crowns which are used to fix a lot of aesthetic and appearance issues, are also incredibly vital for teeth health. With its perfect blend with the gum and the teeth, the risk of infection or disease is much lower with the zirconium crown than its alternatives. 

Why Prefer Zirconium Crown?

  • One of the main reasons to prefer this treatment is its perfect match with the inner mouth tissue. The longevity that dental treatments and aesthetics seek, is possible with zirconium.

  • Zirconium is highly durable against physical impact and it is almost impossible to break. Numerous durability tests as well as patient experience prove the quality of zirconium.

  • Because it is not metal based, it doesn’t reflect light as metals do. Therefore, it doesn’t cause an opaque or blackish appearance in the mouth.

  • It is highly resilient to heat changes. Cold and hot temperature affects the teeth much less with zirconium than other types of crowns. That means the patient is not restricted in their food and drink choices.

  • It is absolutely allergy-free. In fact, many patients with metal allergy are immediately recommended this treatment.

Applying Zirconium Crowns 

The first step before applying the crowns is to reduce the size of your teeth. Once your gums have regained their healthy look we take some measures. We choose the best suited type of zirconium for you in the lab, based on the color texture of your teeth. Then the zirconium crowns are formed to fit your teeth using special adhesives. Final result is no different than any teeth without crowns.

What are the Advantages of Zirconium Crown?

  • It provides a completely natural look with its light-transmissive property.

  • Metal, which is the classical choice of material in the crowns, causes an opaque look on the teeth. Zirconium prevents that and the appearance is quite lively.

  • It prevents plaque from forming on your teeth thanks to its smooth and glistening surface.

  • Discoloring from substances such as coffee, cigarettes or tea is not observed in the zirconium crown method.
