Dental Crowns - Zirconium Crowns, Full Ceramic Crowns, Porcelain Fused To Metal Crowns
A dental crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Although there are several types of crowns, an all-ceramic crown, an all-porcelain crown, or a metal-free crown. Porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular,because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
zirconia dental restorations are made of safe, biocompatible materials. They have an extremely high flexural and tensile strength, and the non-porous design is resistant to chipping, cracking, and staining. The restorations have a smooth exterior, which prevents abrasion to surrounding teeth and gum tissue. In addition, zirconia is multicolored, highly translucent, and natural looking; our technicians use custom coloring techniques for seamless integration into your smile.
Zirconia vs Porcelain Crown
Dental restorations made of natural looking materials At Butterfly Dental Clinic , Our Dental Doctors prefer zirconia dental restorations over those made of any other material, including porcelain. Porcelain restorations cannot match zirconia in terms of strength, durability, longevity, appearance, and patient comfort.
When put through rigorous laboratory testing, zirconia restorations had a 200 percent higher bending strength than porcelain products. zirconia can better withstand the normal wear and tear on teeth from chewing, biting, and speaking. Because of their enhanced durability and strength, zirconia restorations last longer than porcelain.
All-ceramic or all-porcelain dental crowns provide better natural color match than any other crown type and may be more suitable for people with metal allergies. All-ceramic crowns are a good choice for front teeth.
