Zirconium crowns

Zirconium crowns are the most aesthetic crowns available. They are used because of their very strong ceramic material and also because of their very natural looking . The look of zirconium crowns and bridges is so close to natural teeth that it is hard to tell the difference and it is this quality which makes it very useable within dental work.

Zirconium is a very strong substance that can endure wear and tear of everyday use. When looking at Zirconium crowns from an aesthetic point it is clear and very similar to a natural tooth and reflects light the same way. This may be important if your new crowns are on the front of your mouth and it is particularly relevant in cases where the crown will be seen next to the natural teeth.

Zirconium is rapidly becoming the material of choice for dental crowns.  More importantly however, it has a translucency that is very similar to a natural tooth. Light is reflected from a Zirconium crown in much the same way.

This means that Zirconium will produce the best aesthetic effect, which is important if your new crowns are to be at the front. It is particularly the case when the crowns will be seen beside natural teeth.

We can now make crowns and bridgework without needed to add metal and so these new crowns are virtually impossible to distinguish from ‘real teeth’ – except of course we can control their size, shape and colour and thereby provide a perfect, yet natural looking smile.

Zirconium dioxide has been used in dentistry for the past 10 – 15 years. Its strength and durability have been proved. Additionally it is fully biocompatible so there are no risks of allergic reactions. It is increasingly being used in general surgery as well as in dentistry.
