What is a zirconium crown?

Zircon (zirconium, zirconium oxide) is a type of metal that was discovered in the 18th century. This is used and preferred in many areas, such as from the aerospace industry to the military, because, unlike other metals, it does not corrode. Due to its white color and translucence, it is used in dentistry as the basis for ceramic crowns.

How is it used?

Zirconium ceramic crowns can be used on any patient. Since zircon does not have allergy properties, it has a wide range of applications. There is no age limit for this treatment and it can be an option for any patient. Zircon is not harmful to the body. And is made of texture-friendly material. The zirconium ceramic treatment can be completed within just 5 days.

Zirconium ceramic crowns can be placed on the implants. They show no interaction with titanium, which is the substance of an implant.

What are the benefits?

Zirconium crowns are far superior to other metal-supported crowns. Since zirconia are white and transparent, they are translucent. Since the light transmission is particularly similar to that of natural teeth, they achieve the natural aesthetics of a tooth. This is not the case with metal-supported crowns. Since zircon does not corrode, it does not leave any discoloration or metallic taste in the mouth, whereas metal-supported crowns corrode in the mouth.
