Zirconium Crown

Zirconium Crown

Zirconium crown is one of the most preferred applications for a natural and aesthetic smile. Zirconium is a white, shiny, and durable material, and it is preferred in tooth coating. It can give more natural and aesthetic results than zirconium metal-supported tooth coatings produced using ceramic or porcelain.

Dental surfaces of patients who want white teeth and a confident, aesthetic smile and whose gingiva react to metal can be covered with zirconium. In addition, zirconium tooth coating application can be preferred in the renewal of decayed teeth.

When zirconium tooth coating is applied to anterior and posterior teeth, it becomes a very robust application besides its aesthetic appearance. The possibility of breaking, cracking, oxidation, or abrasion in the zirconium tooth coating is low.

How Does the Zirconium Crown Process Work?

When applying zirconium tooth coating, the size of teeth should be reduced to a certain extent. For this procedure, the patient is given local anesthesia. The most suitable color tone is targeted when combining zirconium and porcelain/ceramic. If the color match is achieved in the temporary veneer and no discomfort occurs. In that case, the zirconium crown is applied to the teeth permanently. Regular medical check-ups are recommended after the process.

Advantages of Zirconium Crown

  • Zirconium tooth coating does not contain metal.
  • It takes shape more easily than metal-supported crown applications.
  • Due to its white color and shine, it can look more aesthetic, especially on the front teeth.
  • It can be used for a long time thanks to its robust structure.
  • The patient is less likely to feel sensitivity to hot and cold foods.
  • It helps to prevent stains caused by smoking.
  • It is unlikely to cause bad breath.
  • It is unlikely to cause darkening of the gingiva or any gingival discomfort.
  • It is unlikely to affect the taste of the mouth.
  • If it is carefully looked after following the doctor's recommendations, yellowing will not occur.
  • In cases where the care is insufficient, re-whitening can be performed if yellowing occurs.
