Zirconia is a ceramic used to fabricate dental restorations. Dentists and patients prefer Zirconia because it is the strongest, most long-lasting ceramic available in restorative dentistry. For years, Zirconia has been used to craft metal-free crowns and bridges in place of missing or damaged teeth. Zirconia’s translucent properties give it a natural appearance, and its bio-compatible composition significantly reduces the risk of inflammation or allergic reaction. Nicknamed ‘ceramic steel’, it has even been used for the fabrication of artificial joints.
Why choose Zirconia all-ceramic crowns and bridges?
Restorations made with other materials, such as metal, can result in oxidation and discoloration in the margins surrounding the gums.
Zirconia has years of clinical success and has been used to restore teeth in millions of people around the world.
Zirconia works well with both conventional cementation and adhesive bonding.
Zirconia’s crystallized ceramic properties make it ideal for patients with discolored or misshapen teeth
Zirconia requires minimal tooth preparation, preserving much of the natural tooth structure
