The Benefits of Zirconia Dental Crowns
- Jul 18, 2018 -
When a permanent tooth is lost or decayed, all of your other teeth are affected. Teeth can begin to shift, or the gums can become infected. By restoring your teeth with dental crowns, the dental labs can protect your teeth and preserve your oral health. When you receive a dental crown , you can receive a Zirconia-porcelain crown. These crowns provide the same natural appearance as all-porcelain crowns, but Zirconia is the hardest material used in dental restorations. This means you will receive a beautiful dental crown that will last for years!
A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. The crown is custom made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal; porcelain crowns are popular because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth.
Your smile may benefit from a crown if a tooth is damaged or decayed to the point that a dental filling will not provide a successful restoration. Crowns can also be used for a number of other restorative and aesthetic purposes, including:
To protect a tooth following root canal treatment
To anchor and attach a dental bridge
To cover and complete a dental implant
To enhance the beauty of your smile
To improve a misshapen tooth
To strengthen a tooth that is fractured or weakened
To support a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains
