When the natural structure of a tooth has been extensively damaged or compromised due to dental decay, damaged fillings, root canals, or habitual clenching or grinding of the teeth, a dental filling may not be adequate for its repair. In such cases, dental crowns, also commonly referred to as caps, are recommended to effectively restore the natural integrity, function, and appearance of the affected tooth.
Out of all the materials that are available today for a full coverage restoration, metal-free crowns, also known as all zirconia crowns, offer the most lifelike and biocompatible results. Strong and durable, zirconia crowns are lighter in weight than dental crowns that incorporate a metal substructure and are also kinder to the surrounding soft tissues. Furthermore, zirconia crowns present no problems for individuals with sensitivities to various metals. Since they are fabricated of the highest grade of dental Ziconia, they most closely approximate the natural translucency of your own teeth.
Custom fabricated for the optimal health and aesthetic of a patient's smile, zirconia crowns can also be indicated for an array of dental treatments, ranging from the cosmetic restoration of discolored teeth, to the coverage of a structurally damaged tooth, dental implant, or as the supporting ends of a dental bridge.
