What is zirconia crowns?

Posted on 10/11/2021 by Lincoln Smiles
What is zirconia crowns?Zirconia is a white crystalline solid ceramic coating that combines the durability of metal with the visual, molar appeal of porcelain. And zirconium crowns are continuously being improved to increase their effectiveness. The following are some of the advantages of zirconium crowns: They are similar to the hue of teeth. They are long-lasting. They may be formed in the dentist's office and require less preparation than other materials, allowing you to be fitted for your crown and have it put in a single visit. For a more tooth-like appearance, zirconia can be overlaid with porcelain. These crowns can be bonded or cemented to your tooth, providing our dentist with more alternatives for your requirements. Zirconia is biocompatible, which means it will not create any negative responses in your body.

What are disadvantages of zirconia crowns?

Should inform you of the drawbacks of adopting zirconia crowns. It is cloudier than natural teeth and more closely mimics actual tooth than metals. If you need to replace a front indentation, zirconia may be noticeably darker than the rest of your teeth. And, while this is one of the many advantages of zirconia, there are instances when a tooth may be overly strong. For example, if our dentist wants to adjust your crest to level out your bite or file the height because it's impairing a natural tooth, the strength of zirconia may be regarded as a weakness.

How do you practice good oral hygiene with zirconia crowns?

Whatever material you pick for your height, be careful to maintain proper dental hygiene as you would with your other teeth. Brush at least twice a day, floss or clean between your teeth once a day with interdental brushes or water flosses, and consider utilizing additional beneficial items such as antibacterial mouth rinses and tongue scrapers.
