Zirconium Crowns

What Are Zirconia Crowns?

Zirconia, or Zirconium, is a chemical element of ceramic nature. It is known for its toughness and durability. Hence, crowns are mostly made of zirconia.

Due to its malleability, it needs very few sessions to shape it. Thus, one or two dental appointments is what it takes to fit it in the patient. 

Zirconia crowns match up the colour of the teeth very well. Furthermore, they have long lifespans and surpassing porcelains. The material is also 100% biocompatible since it has no allergies result.

Zirconia Crowns Costs 

Costs for these crowns vary. The experience of your selected physician is also a determinant factor. If travelling for the procedure, factor in transportation and staying costs.

Above all, patients will pay more for zirconia-based crowns as they are the most durable. In most parts of the world, zirconia is the most expensive type of crown available.

Zirconia Crowns Side Effects 

Zirconia is so tough of a material that it has raised some concerns. The material can chip away the neighbouring teeth through sheer friction. Yet, regular check-ups help mitigate the potential impact. 

Once placed, the cap is almost indestructible. The same is not true about the tooth underneath it though. Abrasion by the zirconia crown can affect the tooth in which it is resting. This accelerates its decay by chipping it away. Due to its durability, it will only be noticeable if the zirconia crown is ever removed.
