In the hands of skilled dentists and dental technicians, zirconia crowns can look like natural teeth. They are based on the metal in the color of natural teeth (zirconium), on which porcelain (ceramics) is then applied.
SAME LOOK AS NATURAL TEETH
ADVANTAGES OF ZIRCONIA CROWNS
The conduction of light through zirconia crowns is better than other crowns. This leads to large differences in aesthetics between zirconia and metal-ceramic crowns where the base is gray metal. The hardness and strength of zirconia crowns is greater than natural teeth.
IMPOSSIBILITY OF THE APPEARANCE OF THE “BLACK EDGE”
The advantage of these crowns is the impossibility of the appearance of the so-called “Black edge” due to the withdrawal of the gums because there is no metal in the construction.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Zirconia crowns are perhaps one of the most popular dental restorations today. In the hands of skilled dentists and dental technicians, they can look almost like natural teeth.
They are based on the metal in the color of natural teeth (zirconium) on which porcelain (ceramics) is then applied. The conduction of light through zirconium-based ceramics is exactly what leads to a big difference in aesthetics between these and metal-ceramic crowns where the base is gray metal.
Zirconium is a high-quality material used to make crowns and bridges. Zirconia-ceramic crowns and bridges are characterized by biocompatibility and precision, and at the same time, the natural aesthetics of the teeth are preserved.
If you are interested in zirconia crowns, we will do an examination to determine if you are a candidate for them. We will see if some preparations are needed on the teeth or surrounding tissues in order for your new smile to last as long as possible. We will then make a detailed therapy plan, explain and answer all your questions. If you decide to place your trust in us and do the zirconia crown in our polyclinic, after preparing your teeth for the zirconia crown, we take impressions and send them to the dental technician.
In it, the dental technician will use a special procedure and a 3D scanner to enter your print into the computer and model the zirconium base, which is then made on a CAD-CAM micro-lathe, which guarantees high precision manufacturing. The base of your zirconia crowns will adhere ideally to your natural tooth (no food decay, easier hygiene, no unpleasant smells).
After that, we will try the base in your mouth and make sure of the precision of its production. If we are satisfied the dental technician will apply the ceramic, and with the help of fine brushes add different shades of colors to make your tooth look natural. If you have wishes regarding the shape and color of your teeth, we will do our best to meet all your demands so that you can leave our polyclinic with a smile on your face.
