What are zirconium crowns?
Zirconium crowns are made from a material called Zirconia or Zirconium oxide. It is a white-colored metal that appears in a powdered form and is known to be biocompatible. Meaning, Zirconia doesn’t adversely affect the tissues of the mouth by causing infection or inflammation. Instead, it seamlessly blends in with the teeth and gums and starts functioning without affecting the child’s oral health. They are known to be the best alternative to metal crowns.
Why should you choose Zirconia crowns?
Zirconium crowns offer some of the best features and advantages that their alternatives do not. This puts them ahead of all the options available. Here are some of their advantages:
Aesthetics:Zirconium crowns can be made to perfectly mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Their color, texture, luster, etc. matches the exact features of the natural teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable.
Biocompatible: Zirconia has been used in dentistry and medicine for quite some time now. It is popularly used in hip-replacement surgeries, implant abutments, etc. It is highly preferred as the human body readily accepts this mineral without hassle, making it safe for use.
Durability: Zirconium crowns are wear-resistant. Meaning, their rate of wear is just as much as that of the enamel. Your child can have the crown for several years together without it wearing off.
Strength: Patients who eat a lot of hard foods would benefit a lot from zirconia crowns. While biting or chewing hard foods, high forces are applied to the teeth. But, you need not worry about the crown cracking or breaking as Zirconia is quite a hard and strong substance. The chances of it cracking or chipping away are next to none.
Advanced technology:Zirconium crowns are made using CAD/CAM technology. The level of detail and accuracy achieved using this manufacturing method are simply excellent.
Inexpensive: Zirconium crowns are perhaps the most economical option to restore a tooth in children. In comparison to other types of crowns, it is quite affordable.
