What is Zirconium?
Zirconium is a powerful type of crystal with numerous positive properties. Crystal is known to be long-lasting and indestructible. Zirconium is no different. Besides its durability, zirconium is also compatible with the human body which makes it very popular in the medical field.
What are the Advantages of Zirconium Teeth?
Dental crowns are often used with implants to replace missing or decayed teeth. They can also be used as anchors for dental bridges and partial dentures.
Porcelain and gold have long been crowning traditional materials. Porcelain crowns can give a more natural look, but are more prone to chip formation. Gold crowns are the cheapest but have an unsightly appearance and can cause negative allergic reactions.
Crowns can also be made of zirconium. Zirconium crowns give a wonderful, natural look and do not cause uncomfortable side effects.
The Main Advantages of Zirconium are;
Biocompatibility: Since the body will not reject zirconium, the likelihood of infection, complications, pain, discomfort, and allergic reactions will be less.
To hide the tooth damage: Zirconium is preferred instead of porcelain to cover and hide tooth damage caused by staining or fractures.
Durability: Made of crystal, zirconium is almost not easily destroyed, withstanding the toughest chewing and biting activities. Zirconium crowns are processed in an almost indestructible way. They are also resistant to extreme hot and cold temperatures, which reduces the frequency of tooth hypersensitivity that may be common with other crown types.
Long lasting :
Zirconium crowns last longer than porcelain crowns. This is because zirconium is more resistant to chipping and cracking.
Can be easily modified, reshaped and colored:
Despite their strong structure, it is thought that the malleable nature of zirconium crowns may produce crowns that are better shaped than the original crown it replaces. The ability to create the perfect shape, size and color produces a much better, more natural look for the patient.
Aesthetically pleasing appearance:
Zirconium crowns are made from clear crystal. The clear, translucent appearance of zirconium enables the perfect tooth shade that best matches the patient's natural tooth color, better than gold or porcelain crowns.
No metal substructure required:
Unlike gold or porcelain crowns, zirconium crowns do not have to fuse with a metal base, which makes traditional crowns more eye-catching.
Zirconium crowns give the comfort, safety, feeling, durability and appearance of natural teeth.
