What Are Zirconium Crowns?
Today, among the different types of crowns in modern dentistry, zirconia crowns are the most favoured. In this material you can learn about the main characteristics of zirconium.
Thanks to their high light transmission, zirconia crowns provide an aesthetic and natural appearance to the teeth.
Zirconium does not contain metal, which is why the gums do not turn grey as they do with metal crowns.
Zirconia crowns do not cause allergic reactions, are very good at adhering to the gums, and are also very resistant to bacteria.
A zirconia crown can be a good alternative for patients who are allergic to metallic elements such as nickel and titanium.
Zirconium crowns do not stain or yellow.
Also, one of the features of this type of material is strength and durability. Because of this, zirconium crowns and bridges can withstand heavy chewing loads.
Zirconium crowns are also preferred as a maintenance treatment for filling teeth that have lost their functionality.
