Zirconia Crown Cost

The cost of zirconia crowns

Zirconia crowns are excellent solutions for damaged teeth, when the problem cannot be solved with composites or veneers. Zirconia crowns are highly aesthetic as they look just like natural teeth. It is hypoallergenic, and it does not contain any kind of metal, so it is an ideal choice for patients with metal intolerance. The material is strong and durable. Zirconia crowns are made in a special, computerized CAD-CAM system. The process of their preparation is almost completely automatized. At our clinic we only use premium quality materials for the preparation of zirconia crowns.

  • Strong material
  • Durability
  • Natural appearance
  • Excellent fit thanks to the CAD-CAM technology
  • Biocompatible

What does the price depend on?

The cost of zirconia crown depends on the complexity of the treatment and the materials used. Below, you will find three common examples for different types of replacements (single crown, three-unit bridge, complete bridge). The price changes depending the number of teeth being replaced (our estimate does not include other treatments that might be necessary depending on individual needs).

In case just one tooth is missing, the two adjacent teeth can be used as abutment to support the bridge. After the preparation and reduction of the two supporting teeth, an impression is taken, and then, the cast is sent to the laboratory to construct the three-unit bridge. The middle unit of the bridge replaces the missing tooth and the two adjacent units are fixed onto the prepared teeth for stability. The bridge is bonded to the teeth with a special dental cement.

A bridge is a dental restauration made of two or more crowns. They can be used for partial or complete restorations, but in every case, they need to be supported at least on two points to ensure their stability. Bridges are generally supported by natural teeth, but they can also be placed onto implants (artificial roots).

The complete bridge can be an ideal solution if the patient is missing the majority or all their teeth or if their teeth are aesthetically lacking. If the patient has no teeth at all, the bridge needs to be placed onto implants (the cost of implants and abutments are not included in the below estimates.

Zirconia crowns are high-quality, durable and aesthetic restorations. The colour of the crowns match the natural teeth perfectly. Zirconia crowns are biocompatible and a good choice for patients with metal allergies.
