Zirconia tooth crowns and zirconia dental bridges are quickly becoming the most popular choice amongst dentists today. Zirconia is made from a form of crystal, it is imperishable and extremely long lasting material which is why it’s perfect for creating the best zirconia crowns and bridges.
At our dental laboratory, the zirconia structure is designed with 3D scans of the patient, impression, or model. The core is then milled from a block of zirconia in a soft pre-sintered state. Once milled, the zirconia is sintered where it reaches its full strength of 1200MPa. They are typically five times stronger than porcelain fused to metal crowns.
Aesthetically, a zirconia crown is pleasing to the eye as not only does it look like a real tooth, zirconia tooth crown also has the ability to reflect light in the same way. This is especially important to those patients who might require a crown positioned near the front of their mouth. They are more streamlined and less bulky than some porcelain veneers, making them a common choice.
