A person may seek out dental crowns for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common situations include the need to protect a feeble or decaying tooth, to restore a chipped, worn, or broken tooth, or to buttress a tooth with a large filling. Some cosmetic dental procedures may require dental crowns such as the need to cover a dental implant or hold a dental bridge in place.Want Us To Call You? Call Us Now To Book
Oftentimes a multitude of different materials are used to comprise dental crowns, ranging from metals (such as gold alloy or stainless steel) to tooth-colored crowns made from ceramic or porcelain. Zirconium, a flexible, durable, and biocompatible metal, is now becoming one of the top choices in the dental industry when it comes to the fabrication of dental crowns due to its natural-looking appearance, its strength and compatibility with one’s body.
Zirconia crowns also allow a dental professional to remove far less tooth structure, therefore preserving the tooth. They are an excellent dental crown alternative to gold, porcelain, or other metal alloy materials.
