The Benefits of Zirconia Dental Crowns

- Jun 20, 2018 -


Why Zirconia?


Zirconia is an exceptionally hard ceramic that has become popular in dental restorations, such as crowns. Zirconia is much stronger than standard all-porcelain or all-ceramic crowns, offering the durability of metal-based restorations, with better cosmetic appeal. Zirconia is less likely to chip or break, compared to other cosmetic restorations, making it ideal for long-term appearance and function.

The Benefits of Zirconia Dental Crowns

Beyond strength and durability, zirconia is also transparent in x-rays. If you have a zirconia dental crown, the technician can take routine exams and verify that the tooth structure under the crown is healthy and decay-free. Zirconia crowns are also:

  • Biocompatible - Zirconia crowns from our Suwanee dental office are comfortable and will not irritate soft tissue on the inside of your mouth.

  • Life-Like - Unlike metal crowns, or other porcelain restorations, Zirconia more closely mimics the appearance of real teeth in the way that it allows light to pass through its surface. 

  • Exquisitely Beautiful - Dental restorations that contain a metal base tend to age poorly and look less natural over time. But zirconia is a cosmetically appealing and luminescent ceramic that allows your smile to look flawlessly restored for years.
