Benefits Of Zirconia Crown
1. Biological compatibility
Because zirconium is not rejected by the body, there is less chance of infection, complications, pain, discomfort, and allergic reactions to the crown.
2. Covers up dental damage
For concealing and hiding tooth damage caused by staining or fracture, zirconium is preferred over porcelain.
3. Less tooth structure needs to be extracted.
When a crown is required, a layer of the original tooth is usually removed to allow the crown to fit properly. Because of the strength of zirconium, a thinner layer is required for the crown. A thinner crown means that less of the original tooth is removed.
Zirconium, a crystal, is virtually indestructible and can withstand the most strenuous chewing and biting activities. Zirconium is actually five times stronger than porcelain! They are also resistant to extreme hot and cold temperatures, lowering the frequency of tooth irritation associated with other types of crowns.
5. Complements natural teeth
Despite their strength, zirconium crowns can be easily shaped, sized, and colored to match the patient's natural teeth. The ductility of zirconium crowns is thought to allow for the production of better-shaped crowns than the original crowns it replaces. The ability to create the ideal shape, size, and color gives patients a more natural appearance.
Zirconium crowns are more durable than porcelain crowns and last longer. This is primarily due to zirconium's resistance to chipping and cracking.
It is simple to modify, reshape, and color.
Zirconium crowns are made of crystal and are translucent. Superior to gold or porcelain crowns, the clear, translucent appearance of zirconium allows for perfect tooth shading that best matches a patient's natural tooth color.
8. No metal is required.
Zirconium crowns, unlike gold or porcelain crowns, do not need to be fused to a metal base, making traditional crowns even more appealing. Zirconia crowns provide the same level of comfort, security, feel, durability, and appearance as natural teeth.
