For nearly three decades, dental zirconia has been used for endodontic posts and implants. In 2010, full-zirconia restorations became available to dentists, which completely changed the dental industry for the better. Zirconia creates the strongest dental crowns and, in recent years, manufacturers such as Zotion have greatly enhanced crown translucency to create an enamel-like look. That means that zirconia dental restorations are both natural looking and incredibly durable.
Because these restorations can be made using CAD/CAM technology, advantages such as precision and quicker turnaround times help dentists delight their customers with increased work quality. Zirconia crowns also allow for easy chairside adjustments, and they’re made to, in theory, last a lifetime.
