Zirconium Crown

WHAT ARE ZIRCONIUM CROWN TREATMENTS?

Zirconium crowns are dental crowns that are made of a material called zirconia, which is a type of ceramic. They are known for their durability, strength, and natural appearance. In restorative dentistry, Zirconium dental is often used to repair damaged or decayed teeth.

Zirconium crown treatments are custom-made to fit the shape and size of a patient’s tooth. Unlike metal crowns, zirconia crowns are designed to blend in with the surrounding natural teeth. They are also known for their transparency, meaning they reflect light in a way that mimics the appearance of natural teeth. Zirconia is a biocompatible material resistant to corrosion, so it is an ideal choice for dental crowns and dental treatments.

Zirconium crowns are often used when a patient requires a more durable or long-lasting restoration than a traditional porcelain crown. Zirconia crowns are also a good option for patients allergic to metals, as zirconia is non-metallic and non-reactive.

ADVANTAGES OF ZIRCONIUM CROWN TREATMENTS

There are several advantages to using zirconia crowns in Turkey, including:

  • Durability: Zirconium is a solid and durable material that can withstand the wear and tear of daily use in the mouth. Making it an ideal choice for dental crowns and bridges.
  • Natural appearance: Zirconium crowns are designed to look and feel like natural teeth. So they can blend in seamlessly with the surrounding teeth.
  • Biocompatibility: Zirconia is a biocompatible material well-tolerated by the body, making it a safe choice for dental restorations.
  • Corrosion resistance: Zirconia is resistant to corrosion and does not rust or corrode. Making it a long-lasting material for dental crowns.
  • Minimal tooth reduction: Zirconium crowns can be made with minimal tooth reduction. That means less natural tooth structure must be removed to fit the crown.
  • Allergy-free: Zirconia is a non-metallic material that does not contain metal alloys. It is also not metal support, making it an ideal choice for patients with metal allergies.
  • Precise fit: Zirconium crowns are custom-made to fit the shape and size of the patient’s tooth. Which ensures an exact fit and reduces the risk of complications.

Everything is to assure you that you are in safe hands…

ZIRCONIUM CROWN PROCEDURE

The stages of getting zirconium crowns are similar to other dental PFM crowns, but some specific stages are unique. Here are the stages distinct only to zirconium crowns:

  • Digital impressions: Zirconium crowns require precise measurements and a perfect fit. Therefore, digital prints are taken using a special scanner to create a 3D image of the teeth. That eliminates the need for traditional dental prints, which can be messy and uncomfortable.
  • Computer aided design (CAD): The digital print is used to create a computer generated zirconium crown design. The design is based on the specific size and shape of the tooth and considers the patient’s bite and other factors.
  • Computer aided manufacturing (CAM): Once the CAD design is complete, the zirconia crown is manufactured. A special milling machine uses the CAD design to create a precise and accurate crown. This process can take several hours to complete.

  • Color matching: Zirconium crowns can be color-matched to the patient’s natural teeth. Which involves selecting the appropriate shade and clarity to blend in seamlessly with the surrounding teeth.
  • Final fitting: Once the zirconium crown is manufactured. It is carefully fitted and adjusted to ensure a perfect fit and comfortable bite. The crown is then permanently bonded to the tooth using special dental cement.

The stages involved in getting zirconium crowns are similar to other types of dental crowns in dental clinics. However, digital impressions, computer aided design and manufacturing, and color matching are newer materials for zirconium crowns. And they contribute to their precise fit and natural appearance.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ZIRCONIUM CROWNS AND OTHERS?

  • Zirconium crowns are different from other types of dental crowns in several ways, including:
  • Material: Zirconium crowns are made of zirconia, a type of ceramic. Other types of crowns may be made of metals, such as gold or silver, or other materials, such as porcelain or resin.
  • Strength: Zirconia is a solid and durable material. Making zirconia crowns a good choice for people who need a crown that can withstand the forces of chewing and biting. A strength that temporary crowns cannot provide.
  • Aesthetics: Zirconium crowns are known for their natural appearance and can be color-matched to the patient’s natural teeth. In contrast, other types of crowns may be more noticeable or less lifelike in appearance.
  • Biocompatibility: Zirconia is a biocompatible material. It does not cause allergic reactions or other adverse reactions in the body as other materials used in dental crowns.
  • Preparation: Zirconia crowns may require less tooth reduction than other types of crowns. This means that more of the natural tooth structure can be preserved.
  • Manufacturing process: Zirconium crown treatments are typically made using computer aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology. This allows for a precise fit and reduces the likelihood of errors or inaccuracies in the manufacturing process.
  • Color matching: Zirconium crowns can be color-matched to the patient’s natural teeth. Which involves selecting the appropriate shade and clarity to blend in seamlessly with the surrounding teeth.
  • Final fitting: Once the zirconium crown is manufactured. It is carefully fitted and adjusted to ensure a perfect fit and comfortable bite. The crown is then permanently bonded to the tooth using special dental cement.

The stages involved in getting zirconium crowns are similar to other types of dental crowns in dental clinics. However, digital impressions, computer aided design and manufacturing, and color matching are newer materials for zirconium crowns. And they contribute to their precise fit and natural appearance.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF ZIRCONIUM CROWN TREATMENTS?

  • Brush and floss regularly: Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and brush your teeth twice with fluoride toothpaste.  Floss daily to remove plaque and food particles around your zirconium crowns.
  • Avoid hard or sticky foods: Refrain from hard or sticky foods. It can damage your zirconium crowns or pull them off your teeth.
  • Avoid grinding or clenching your teeth: Grinding or clenching your teeth can put extra pressure on your zirconium crowns. This can cause them to crack or break.

  • The location of the dental practice.
  • The dentist’s experience.
  • The number of teeth being restored.
  • The price of zirconium crowns can range from $800 to $2,000 per tooth.

The cost of zirconia crowns may be higher than other dental crowns. It is due to the cost of the materials and the technology required to manufacture them. 

However, zirconia crowns offer several advantages over other types, including their durability, strength, and natural appearance. Making them a good investment in your smile’s long-term health and aesthetics.
