At our Hospital Dental advanced facial cosmetic surgical centers, we believe in crown and bridge treatment with natural-looking crowns. The natural –looking crowns like natural teeth, must transmit light. Ordinary porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crowns can’t do that.
The look of zirconium crown and bridge treatment is so close to natural teeth that it is hard to tell the difference and it is this quality which makes it very useable within dental work. Zirconium crowns can be fixed using traditional dental cements.
The cost of crown and bridge treatment by zirconium dental crowns can be high but it has quickly become the preferred material for dental crowns. Zirconium is a very strong substance that can endure wear and tear of everyday use. Its similarity with that of a natural tooth is beyond doubt and it reflects light the same way. This may be important if your new crowns are on the front of your mouth and it is particularly relevant in cases where the crown will be seen next to the natural teeth.
Porcelain is the conventional material used for the new crowns however; Full porcelain can chip or break. Zirconium dental crown cost is directly proportional to the used metal that gives the strength. While the porcelain gives the appearance of a normal tooth. Zirconium crowns allow light to pass as a normal tooth would and that gives a natural look, unlike other metal cores.
Exclusively for our patients we have started using Zirconia in cosmetic treatment.
