    Pros and cons of zirconia crowns

    Pros and cons of zirconia crowns

    Zirconia crowns are generally used to restore or replace decaying, damaged teeth. The advantages of zirconia crowns are their durability, their high quality and their perfectly natural appearance. They can be used after root canal treatments for aesthetic reasons or they can also be placed onto implants to replace missing teeth.

    The advantages of zirconia crowns

    • Strong, durable material
    • Long lasting and reliable restoration
    • The appearance of the crowns is completely natural, they match the patient’s natural teeth perfectly
    • Excellent fit: the computerized CAD-CAM technology guarantees exquisite aesthetic result and fit
    • Biocompatible
    • Safe for patients with metal-allergies

    Zirconia crowns are made in our laboratory with a special, computerized system, using CAD-CAM technology. This makes it possible to fit them perfectly to the abutment amongst other advantages. The crown is produced in a short time in this almost completely automatized process. Our clinic only used high quality materials for the zirconia crowns.

    Zirconia crown vs. porcelain crown

    Zirconia crowns provide a much more aesthetic result than porcelain crowns. Additionally, zirconia crowns are fully biocompatible and contain no metal, therefore they are a safe choice for patients with metal allergies.
