In which cases can zirconium crowns be done? in Turkey, Istanbul

When to use zirconia crowns?

Zirconium crown is applied when both strength, durability, and aesthetic tooth appearance are desired. We can list them as follows;

  • Revision and repair of broken teeth,
  • Correction of slightly crooked and crooked teeth,

  • In the healing of old filling teeth that have lost their color and deformed,
  • In the completion of missing teeth in the mouth,
  • Correction of teeth whose aesthetic appearance has been lost due to gingival diseases and gingival recession,
  • In smile design procedures.

The Advantages of Zirconium Crowns

Zirconium crowns can be applied to lower and upper jaw teeth. It is widely used in terms of strength in the posterior teeth and in terms of aesthetic appearance in the anterior teeth. The advantages of these crowns can be listed as follows;

  • Zirconium, highly compatible with the gingiva, helps maintain gingival health. This structure protects the gingival color and prevents the dark purple color formation and irritations in gingival diseases.
  • Thanks to its high degree of biocompatibility with the oral structure, it does not have any effects such as allergic reactions.
  • Zirconium crowns are extremely resistant and durable against cracking, breakage, and corrosion. Thanks to these features, it can be used safely on both front and back teeth, and there is no problem in case of any biting or chewing process.
  • Zirconium crowns have a light-permeable feature, like the enamel layer in natural teeth. Thanks to this feature, a white appearance closest to the natural tooth is obtained. Thus, more aesthetic and natural teeth are obtained.
  • Since zirconium crowns do not contain a metal structure like other crowns, they do not cause a metallic taste sensation in the mouth.
  • Since the heat transmission properties of zirconium crowns are low, hot and cold sensitivity does not occur on the teeth.
  • Since the surface of zirconium crowns is smooth and shiny, it reduces the possibility of bacterial plaque formation on the crown.
  • It can be used for many years as it is extremely robust and durable.
  • Since a natural tooth appearance is provided, it is not understood that the tooth is a crown when viewed from the outside.
  • The discoloration of natural teeth is much less common in zirconium crowns.
  • Zirconium crowns give teeth an aesthetic appearance as well as durability.

The Disadvantages of Zirconium Crowns

Most of the disadvantages experienced in the first period of zirconium crown have been eliminated with the advancement of technology. Today, the disadvantage or damage of zirconium crown is negligible. Zirconium crowns have two disadvantages. These;

  • Zirconium crowns have a more fragile structure because they are resistant to breakage but not flexible. For this reason, it is not possible to use very long zirconia crown bridges to be made to remove long tooth gaps consisting of 4-5 adjacent teeth due to the possibility of breakage.
  • Compared to porcelain crowns, high zirconium crown prices are also a significant disadvantage.
