If you have missing teeth, dental bridges may be a more suitable option than removable dentures. Zirconia is a good material for dental crowns, bridges, and veneers.

When choosing a restoration material, consider how it will look and how strong it is. Can it last longer and function better than natural teeth? Is it easy to maintain and not cause gum disease?

Zirconia can make your smile look good and fix damaged teeth practically. More patients are choosing this material for their teeth restorations.

Dental Crown Materials Improvement

Dentists have been using dental crowns for a while to fix damaged teeth. These days, getting those perfect white teeth and adorable smiles you’ve been dreaming of is possible. In the past, strength and dependability were the most important factors in dental restorations. But now, there’s a greater focus on creating excellent restorations that enhance your appearance. With modern dentistry, you can have both a functional and beautiful smile.

In the past, dentists used metal and gold alloys to cap teeth. These materials were strong enough to handle the force of chewing, but they didn’t look like natural teeth. Gold, while expensive, was a popular choice for those who wanted to keep their damaged teeth for a long time. Although not the most aesthetically pleasing, the durability of these materials made them a practical option.

Porcelain Fused to Metal Crown (PFM)

In due course, people began to favor dental crowns and fixed bridges that appeared like natural teeth. So, porcelain materials were introduced and were used to cover the metal base or copping of the dental crown. Porcelain materials have various shades and tint to come close to the real teeth’ color. Still, the metal base underneath affected the translucency effect present in natural teeth. So, it became challenging to hide the metal showing and the greyish-effect near the gum-line, which is an issue on most porcelain fused-to-metal dental crowns and fixed bridges. Another downside of porcelain materials is that they can chip, break or crack over time, especially when the bite is off.

Zirconia material is a much sturdier and more rigid dental material used for dental crowns and fixed bridges with a realistic appearance – closer or even better than the natural teeth. To this day, it becomes the most desired dental restoration and teeth replacement of choice.

Zirconia – Best Choice for Dental Crowns & Fixed Bridges

A Few Slight Issues About Zirconia:

  • Zirconia is a strong and good-looking choice for teeth, even better than metals like gold. It’s not as see-through as natural teeth. Still, skilled technicians can make it look similar by adjusting its core and using special Zircon blocks.

  • When fixing a single tooth in the front, zirconia shines because it can be layered with porcelain and colored just right. It blends in so well that you’ll hardly notice any difference!

  • Your dentist must check your bite correctly before setting the tooth in place. Zirconia is solid, and if it’s not adjusted correctly, it might harm other weaker teeth. But please don’t worry; your dentist will take care of this with great care. We’re here to offer you the best solution, with tangible results that speak for themselves!

Keeping Your Mouth Clean & Healthy for a Lasting Dental Crowns

Any restorations done in your mouth, be it a dental crown, bridges, or fillings, need routine maintenance. Like your natural teeth, over time, they can get damaged or cause problems related to gums and tooth nerves if not maintained or brushed and cleaned the right way. Properly brushing your teeth no less than twice a day helps rid the food debris and bacteria-rich plaque to set off dental decay and gum disease. Using dental floss appropriately to clean teeth and accessible surfaces of any dental restorations (crowns, bridges, veneers) can also be very helpful. Using an antimicrobial mouth rinse and tongue scraper can improve the smell of your breath. Another valuable adjunct is employing a “water pik” or water flosser. Keep your regular professional cleanings with your dentist at least twice a year – to keep your teeth pearly white and bacteria-free and to check your crown’s health.

If your teeth have become worn down, have cracked or chipped – considering the topmost material is a practical choice. When your teeth have become shorter, and the shape becomes irregular and uneven, you could be pondering how to improve them with less hassle. Or if you have missing teeth and want to restore them without the need for surgery (like implants). Considering the best material as an investment to help eat, smile, talk and give your body a treat for a gum-friendly and biocompatible material, Zirconia is the elite choice!
