Zirconia or Zirconium is a well-known material that has transformed the industry of dentistry. It is considered the hardest material when compared to other teeth restoration materials. The Zirconia utilized in dentistry is Zirconium Oxide (ZrO2). The material comes in various shapes and sizes and requires complex computer systems for processing. Dental crowns and dental bridges are manufactured using this robust material. Besides this, another reason that makes Zirconia crown a get-to is its teeth-like color.
They are also polished from a chunk of crystal. And guaranteed to be 5 times stronger than porcelain. The material is almost indistinguishable from your existing tooth and renders perfect support on top of a broken tooth. Not only in dentistry, but it also comes in various medical uses and is 100% biocompatible. Zirconia is also used in several prostheses such as surgeries of the ear, hip finger, etc. Zirconia teeth restorations are widely known because they do not contain any metal inside and turn out to be highly aesthetics.
There are primarily two types of Zirconia. Our highly advanced CAD-CAM technology efficiently designs both models. Zirconia-based prostheses are highly specific because they are processed with computers.
This Zirconia type gives your teeth a natural look. It is translucent, which means no one would be able to tell If you are wearing a dental crown. This one is more apt for anterior teeth. It is superior in appearance and also higher in strength If compared to Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM).

Dentists and satisfied patients believe in Zirconia Crown because of the following benefits:
The procedure of getting a Zirconia crown takes only two visits at the clinic. In the first visit, the dentist will examine the dental impression and oral health of the patient. After that, the patient will be sent to the lab for a customized Zirconia crown. A temporary crown is set until the permanent dental crown is ready. The patient is asked to visit after few days. During the second visit, the permanent Zirconium dental crown is set. The advantage of zirconia dental material is that. It can be shaped according to the real teeth to look natural.
The preparation of Zirconia is carried out from a single block of Zirconium. It is known as monolithic Zirconia. They are exceptionally resistant to tear and wear as well as cracks. Before monolithic, Zirconia was made from Porcelain, and they were not very durable.
