Lifelike Zirconia Dental Crowns
The materials used to craft crowns, veneers, bridges, and dentures have advanced significantly throughout dental history. Our team at Lone Star Dental Care knows how important it is to receive the best dental crowns in Frisco and Plano, TX, which is why we offer zirconia dental crowns to our patients. When it comes to dental crowns and other restorations, porcelain has long been used for its ability to mimic a healthy tooth structure. Zirconia is similar to porcelain in that they resemble each other in appearance. However, zirconia is more durable than porcelain in the long-run to reduce the risk you’ll need to get additional dental work done in the future to repair or replace them.
Zirconia crowns have been used in the dental industry since the early 2000s and have become a favorite amongst dentists as the clinical performance has improved, making zirconia crowns a superior solution for many different dental procedures. Dr. Vahadi often recommends them for patients who require an attractive but reliably strong dental crown.
The Difference Zirconia Makes
Zirconia crowns contain a significant amount of zirconium oxide, which offers unparalleled strength, biocompatibility, and resemblance to the color and shine of your natural teeth, so no one will ever notice unless you tell them. In addition to being semi-translucent like natural teeth, zirconia crowns are also transparent in X-rays, so Dr. Vahadi can see the tooth structure underneath it during your routine examinations to ensure all problems are caught in a timely manner and can be fixed before they become, which more serious.
Zirconia is ideal for the back teeth where there is naturally a lot of pressure from things like chewing your food or grinding your teeth because of their high level of durability. Dr. Vahadi uses traditional bonding techniques in order to conventionally cement the crown, making the zirconia crowns suited to last a lifetime.
The Benefits of Zirconia Dental Crowns
Zirconia crowns are one of the strongest dental crown options, and it can also be shaped and sized to fit the needs of individual patients. Zirconia dental crowns offer a variety of advantages compared to other materials, including:
Easily Modified: Zirconia gives the patient a more comfortable fit due to the crown’s precise construction. The dentist can change the shape and alter the color to make sure the crown matches the rest of your smile.
Hypoallergenic Material: Zirconia is a material that’s biocompatible, allowing patients to avoid any allergic reactions or infections. There’s much less of a chance for a patient to develop an allergic reaction, which helps avoid the potential for rejection.
Natural Appearances: With a more natural and realistic esthetic, zirconia blends in well with your natural teeth.
Enhanced Durability: Zirconia is stronger than porcelain, with as much as 5 times the amount of strength. Additionally, zirconia can stand up to exerted pressure from patients, like teeth grinding or nail-biting. The crowns also boast low thermal conductivity, which means that they do not transfer extreme fluctuations of temperatures.
One of the most beneficial aspects of zirconia crowns is a fast turnaround. Patients no longer have to wear a temporary crown as they wait for a permanent one because zirconia dental crowns in Frisco and Plano, TX, can be made in the dentist’s office. This eases the stress of waiting and allows a patient to have same-day treatment, as well as eliminates the need to fit yet another dental appointment into your already busy schedule.
