What are the benefits of all-ceramic dental crowns?


In the past, dental crowns were made of metal and then covered with ceramic. These crowns were functional; however, over time the porcelain would erode at the bottom of the crowns, exposing a dark line of metal along the gum line. This may not be noticeable in molar crowns at the back of the mouth, but many patients wanted a more aesthetic alternative that also maintained the same strength as metal crowns. More advanced technology has made it possible to create crowns made entirely of pressed porcelain.
These dental crowns are strong and beautiful, and the ceramic material can be matched to the color of the original remaining teeth, which proves excellent aesthetic appearance.

 

What are they ?

ZIRCONIUM CROWNS

Non-metal zirconium ceramic porcelain,(Zirconium oxide or Zircones)

 

Zirconium crowns are one of the most aesthetic crowns available. Zirconium crowns are used because of their very strong ceramic material and also because they are very natural looking .It is therfore very difficult to distinguish Zirconium crowns from ones own natural teeth.

The crowns and bridgework will not corrode and the normal black gum line that might be visible around a porcelain fused metal crown will not occur.This oxide is a powdered material that has been proven to be safe and has the advantage of being white,translucent and metal-free,it is ideal for dental work.Also the hot and cold sensations might not occur because of the lack of  conductivity.

Zirconium oxide crowns and bridges are so strong they can be used anywhere in the mouth.Zircones can with stand the biting pressure of the front teeth as well as back teeth grinding. Therefore they are higly recommended for anterior or posterior single crowns and multi-unit bridges because they are strong,durable and are the most natural looking.


We highly recommend to our patients,after their detailed and thorough consultancy ,a treatment plan suited for your needs and affordability,Zirconium crowns as apposed to Veneer are the preferred choise amoungst our very satisfied patients.

With the benefits of having our own dental lab. we are able to prepare your zirconium crowns within 4-5 working days by our highly educated and experienced team.

 

 


IPS - EMAX

Lithium disilicate (LS2) glass-ceramic is ideally suitable for the fabrication of monolithic single-tooth restorations. This innovative ceramic provides highly esthetic results and, compared to other glass-ceramics, demonstrates a strength that is 2.5 to 3 times higher. Supported with zirconium oxide, it may also be used for bridges in the posterior area.
