Zirconium Crowns

                                                                Zirconium Crowns Treatment Overview

Porcelain crowns with a metal alloy foundation have been used for many years, but because they lack the light transmission of real teeth, they give the patient a slightly grey appearance. Metal crowns can cause gums to grey over time and can also trigger allergic responses. Newer, healthier, and more effective materials have been identified in recent years, providing patients with a more acceptable end result.

As a result, zirconium, a tissue-friendly substance, is currently employed in dentistry. Zirconium coatings now have a strength comparable to that of the previously utilized metallic alloy. Because zirconium is translucent, does not cause gum discoloration, is non-allergic, and is corrosion resistant, it has become the material of choice for dental restorations.


Patients who want to improve the color of their teeth for a more attractive smile might consider zirconia crowns and bridges.
This material, on the other hand, is perfect for orthodontic treatment.



When are zirconia crowns recommended?

  •  Zirconia crowns are generally used for aesthetic reasons to create a perfect smile

  •  To cover or replace teeth with severe discolouration resistant to ‘tooth whitening’ procedures

  •  As a treatment for genetic tooth discolouration

  •  To correct for ‘diastema,’ or crooked teeth, as an alternative to orthodontic treatment

  •  To restore teeth with caries or that have been previously filled

  •  To restore a deformed tooth

  •  Can be used as a bridge or veneer for molars

  •  As a front denture fixed to an implant, or implants

How long will a zirconia crown last?

Zirconia crowns can last for many years if the patient commits to regular dental examinations. Natural teeth are living tissues that can distort over time owing to wear and diseases, but zirconia crowns are impervious to alteration. However, changes in the mouth structure later in life may necessitate the adaptation or replacement of the zirconia crown.

Will the replacement of the zirconia crown cause any damage to the natural tooth underneath?
When the crown is removed, the patient will not experience any discomfort, and the normal underlying tooth tissue will not be lost.

What are the aesthetic benefits of zirconia crowns?

The crown will have the same natural appearance as the patient's existing natural teeth due to the zirconia material's light transmittance capabilities. The metallic basis of traditional porcelain crowns creates an opaque, dull, and unnatural aspect to the teeth, whereas light flows through the enamel of healthy teeth; zirconia crowns address these cosmetic concerns.

Can zirconia be used for those who are allergic to metals?

Because there is no metal in a zirconia crown, it does not trigger allergic responses.

Do zirconia crowns cause discoloration in future?
The polished and smooth surface of zirconia crowns prevents plaque buildup and discoloration caused by tea, coffee, and smoking.

Will zirconia affect the sense of taste or cause bad breath?
The use of zirconia will have no negative effects on the patient's mouth.

How is a zirconia crown attached?

The patient's natural tooth's surface is somewhat reduced. The surrounding gums may swell as a result of this. A dental impression is obtained when the swelling has subsided. A zirconia base is created in our in-house laboratory to match the color of the natural teeth. After that, the patient is given an appropriate trial. Final adjustments are made, polishing occurs, and the finished product is firmly bonded in place. The zirconia crown can thereafter be used as if it were a real tooth by the patient.

How much tooth loss is required during the process?

The surface of the native tooth is ground down by around 1-2 mm, similar to the preparation for fitting a porcelain crown with a metal alloy base, with material loss slightly more than when installing a porcelain laminate.

Is the procedure painful?

The procedure is carried out under the influence of a local anesthetic.
To prevent sensitivity to cold or hot, a temporary crown is placed that matches the patient's natural teeth color.
During the operation, a few people may suffer slight tingling, but the procedure is normally finished without complications.

Are there any aesthetic problems experienced during treatment?
For the front teeth, a temporary zirconia crown will be placed in a comparable design to the ultimate permanent zirconia crown.
This temporary crown is constructed of acrylic and is not particularly sturdy; however, the color match and shape will be ideal.

Is it likely that a zirconia crown can break or be dislodged?

In the event of severe or adverse force, zirconia crowns may crack or shatter; nonetheless, the risk of fracturing or cracking is similar to that of a natural tooth. Our clinic can help you with these issues. If the natural tooth underlying the zirconia crown decays, the crown may fall out. In such circumstances, the tooth is treated to the extent possible, and the crown is re-cemented.

Can zirconia crowns be offered to people gingival disease?

After the gingival disease has been adequately treated, there is no reason not to place a zirconia crown.

What is a Dental Crown?

One of the options for dental restoration is a crown, often known as a dental cap. Because it covers or encircles a tooth or dental implant, we call it a "dental cap." It will conceal the yellowed and chipped areas of your teeth. You can have a completely natural-looking tooth with high-quality materials and an expert dentist.

Difference Between Veneers and Dental Crowns

Dental crowns come in a variety of styles, including veneers. Many people believe that both are the same, however this is not the case. They are functionally and structurally distinct.

Because the Veneer just covers the front surface of your teeth, it can be used to treat front tooth problems. Dental crowns, on the other hand, are a little different in that they cover the entire tooth and no one can tell the difference between your natural teeth and the artificial dental crown.

When compared to Veneers, Dental Crowns deliver higher aesthetic outcomes. Their functional qualities are also more precise than Veneer's. Dental crowns will not only conceal yellow stains or cracks in fractured teeth, but they will also provide your teeth more strength and allow you to chew and grind more effectively. Crowns and veneers both work well to improve the aesthetic appearance of teeth.

What is full set of dental crowns?

A complete set of dental crowns comprises of 20-28 crown parts. The number of dental crowns you need is determined by the number of visible teeth you have and your overall oral health. If the patient has missing or diseased teeth, this surgery may require dental implants.

To increase the aesthetic attributes of zirconia crowns, we mill the full-contour zirconia blocks on cad cam devices or veneer a porcelain layer to the front surface of the solid zirconia base. Furthermore, multi-layered full-contour zirconia blocks offer exceptional aesthetics that are nearly identical to real teeth.

Full-contour zirconia crowns and porcelain-veneered zirconia crowns are both quite attractive. Because they have an extra layer linked to them, porcelain-veneered zirconia crowns are slightly less durable than full-contour zirconia crowns.

Zirconia crowns, unlike full porcelain and PFM crowns, can only be made with certain types of 3D milling gear.
The majority of clinics outsource the preparation of these crowns to other labs. As a result, collaborating with dental technicians throughout the creation of the final product is difficult for these clinics.


In our dental laboratory at Rosary Clinic Turkey, our skilled dentists and dental technicians collaborate during the design and milling stage of zirconia crowns.
