A GUIDE THROUGH ZIRCONIA
WHAT ARE ZIRCONIA CROWNS?
Zirconia crowns are presently the best tooth restorations, fully replacing all the materials used in dental prosthetics so far. Due to this fact we have found Zirconium Center, specialized in providing premium zirconia crown dental treatments.
WHO ARE THEY INTENDED FOR?
Owing to their excellent aesthetic qualities and strength, zirconia crowns are the crowns of choice in the aesthetic and lateral dental region. They are intended for all those who want a perfect smile and immaculate mastication.
WHAT ARE THEIR ADVANTAGES AS COMPARED TO OTHER TYPES OF CROWNS?
The advantage of zirconia crowns is that they perfectly imitate natural teeth. They are long-lasting and resistant to mechanical force generated during chewing. Unlike metal ceramic crowns, for which it is necessary to remove a lot of tooth substance, zirconia crowns require only a small quantity of tooth substance to be removed. Metal ceramic crowns comprise two layers and two materials, whereas zirconia crowns consist of one layer, which enables maximum protection of your teeth.
WHEN ARE THEY RECOMMENDED?
Zirconia crowns are widely used. They are used for solo crowns and bridges, as well as for complex implant restorations.
WHY SHOULD I OPT FOR ZIRCONIA?
If you do not want to sacrifice a large portion of your teeth for a nice smile, if you want crowns which are strong and long-lasting, if you want your teeth to look natural, zirconia is the right choice.
AESTHETICALLY SPEAKING, IS A ZIRCONIA TOOTH DIFFERENT FROM A NATURAL ONE IN TERMS OF COLOUR?
No, there is no difference at all! Zirconia fits in perfectly, not only in terms of colour, but also in terms of other qualities of natural teeth.
CAN ZIRCONIA CROWN CAUSE ANY ALLERGIC REACTION?
Zirconium is totally bicompatible material. No allergic reactions or tissue irritation.
HOW LONG DO ZIRCONIA CROWNS LAST?
Zirconia crowns are long-lasting restorations, with no expiry date. If you have regular dental check-ups, they may even last a lifetime.
WHAT DOES THE PROCEDURE OF MANUFACTURING CROWNS LOOK LIKE?
At Zirconium Center, the crown manufacturing procedure is pain-free, fast and simple. At the beginning, teeth are prepared for crowns- in other words, 0.5 - 1mm of enamel is removed from all tooth surfaces. Our aim is to protect your teeth to the maximum, at the same time improving your smile. Zirconia crowns are made completely digitally, with the assistance of computer design and machines processing zirconia itself. Therefore, there is almost no possibility of making a mistake. When this crown manufacturing method is combined with digital technologies applied in our dental studio, the result is a perfectly precise crown or bridge of high aesthetic value.
HOW MANY VISITS I SHOULD MAKE FOR A ZIRCONIA CROWN TREATMENT?
Owing to the latest dental scanning technologies and computer-aided crown manufacturing, the time spent in the dental studio is significantly shorter - only two or three visits for a perfect smile.
HOW EXPERIENCED ARE YOU IN WORKING WITH ZIRCONIA?
Zirconia is a material we have been using for more than 10 years. The qualities of this material and its manufacturing technology have been significantly improved in the last several years, and at this point, it is the best thing that you can offer yourself.
