Zirconium crowns are one of the most important and most recommended types of crowns recently. Those who want aesthetic artificial teeth prefer zirconium crowns. Patients are often curious about the composition or materials used in the production of zirconium crowns.
Zirconium crowns are composed of zirconium oxide or zirconium. Zirconium is a white metal that is radiopaque in X-rays. Also, tooth color is whiter than other treatment options. There is no anesthetic gray line visibility compared to that of traditional metal-based ceramic crowns.
It is known that zirconium crowns give a natural appearance. Often times, zirconium crowns are difficult to distinguish from natural teeth. When using metal-based crowns, it is recommended to attach zirconium crowns to the teeth to give the related teeth a more natural appearance, as the gum line tends to darken.
Tissues in the mouth happily accept zirconium crowns. Zirconium crowns start to work really well in the days after the zirconium crown treatment is completed. Zirconium crowns have equal lifespan compared to regular crowns.
Most dental crowns are corroded by patients with years of regular use. Various liquids and foods consumed over the years cause corrosion of dental crowns. Zirconium crowns do not corrode like other types of dental crowns, which greatly contributes to their longevity.
