Zirconium Crowns / Veneers

The pursuit of beauty often determines our everyday life: appropriate clothing, a fresh appearance – and an aesthetic smile. This is why zirconium crowns are so popular as dentures.

Zirconia crowns – almost like a real tooth

If tooth damage from caries or other causes is so severe that an inlay or onlay is no longer an option for reasons of stability, but the tooth root is still intact, then a dental prosthesis in the form of a crown is required. A dental achievement that has proven to be the ideal material for high-quality dentures over the past few years is the all-ceramic crown made of zirconium.

The “white gold” – also called ceramic steel – is dentures that meet the highest demands.

What kind of material is zircon (short for zirconium dioxide/zirconia/zirconia)?

Zirconium dioxide is made from zirconium silicate. This silicate sand is washed, cleaned and calcined to produce a 99 percent pure zirconia powder. This powder is sintered (heated under high pressure) to create highly resilient ceramics. The material is characterized by high abrasion resistance and good chemical resistance.

Zirconium oxide is used, among other things, as a prosthetic material – for example for hip joint implants – or in dentistry for the production of tooth-colored crowns, bridges and implants that should not contain any metal.

In the case of telescopic prostheses, primary telescopes can be made of zirconium oxide.

What are the properties of zirconium oxide dentures?

Crowns or bridges made of zirconia are fixed dentures and are 100% metal-free, extremely robust, behave biologically neutral and are extremely compatible with gums and mucous membranes.

Due to their translucency in the mouth, zirconium crowns can hardly be distinguished from real teeth, even for dentists. Since the material conducts heat and cold poorly, discomfort caused by temperatures is virtually impossible, even if the patient already has metal crowns in their mouth. The crowned tooth root and the pulp are thus very well protected against thermal influences.

What are the advantages of zirconia crowns for the patient?

Dental prostheses made of zirconium oxide come closest to the natural tooth substance in terms of shape, color and function and meet the highest aesthetic standards. Its high stability, natural appearance and very good fit make dental crowns, bridges and implants made of high-tech ceramic a high-quality and long-lasting, albeit expensive, restoration.

Questions? You’re covered.

In terms of durability, dental crowns made of zirconium are in no way inferior to metal crowns. However, the durability depends essentially on the accuracy of the impression, the grinding and bonding. With careful care, a zirconium crown can easily last for decades.

Due to its stability, zirconia also harmonises well with the back molars. In addition to its stability, it is translucent and satisfies all aesthetic requirements. They are as stable as crowns with a metal core or bridges. Compared to porcelain, zirconium is more stable.

In terms of durability, both Emax and Zirconium are extremely good choices. However, zirconium is more wear-resistant and much more durable than Emax. Zirconium is a better option to restore an underlying darker tooth as it is not highly translucent.
