Every person wants to feel beautiful. Whether it is their smile or their eyes, they want everything to be the best it can be. More and more people are opting for cosmetic dentistry to enhance their smile. Nevertheless, all dental procedures are not done for strictly aesthetic purposes. Procedures such as crowning are necessary for the health of the tooth. Crowning is a dental restoration procedure to cap a large cavity to save the health of the tooth. Previously, gold crowns were the only option for dental crowns. Now, doctors are experimenting with a lot of non-metal elements for dental crowns. Porcelain and zirconia crowns are loved by patients for their natural yet strong look.

What is Zirconia?

Zirconia is a very hard ceramic that is used as a base material. It is relatively new in dentistry. It is the hardest known ceramic in the industry. As it is translucent just like natural teeth, it is preferred by patients. The zirconia core is designed by creating a digital model of the patient's mouth. Monolithic zirconia crowns are more opaque than natural teeth so a bit of porcelain is added to it. This makes the crown more natural looking and easy to use on the front teeth. Zirconia crown cementation is one of the strongest in the dentistry industry.

Why choose Zirconia crown cementation?

While the aesthetic effect alone of Zirconia crown cementation is great, the element itself is extremely strong as well. It is quickly becoming one of the most recommended and selected materials for dental crowns. 

Zirconia crown cementation is:

  • Extremely tough

  • Translucent like natural teeth

  • Withstands wear and tear

  • Less tooth removal

  • No Metal fusion

  • Custom size, shape, and color

  • Biocompatible

Zirconia crown cementation gives natural looking crowns. Despite being a restoration procedure, it is important to have natural looking dental crowns. Zirconia crowns can be placed on the front and back teeth. As they are customizable, they can be used to replace the teeth without looking unnatural. Zirconia offers the perfect looking smile that we all seek. More and more manufacturers are creating and designing Zirconia crowns. They are customized according to the patient's teeth and baked at high temperature after being cut from a huge block. The finished crowns are extremely strong and nearly unbreakable.

While porcelain crowns may chip and break, Zirconia crown cementation lasts for a long time. Other crowns require to be fused with a metal base, which is not a problem with Zirconia. Zirconia crown cementation is at least 5 times stronger than porcelain and its metal base.
