You have a lovely smile-until you need a crown to go over an exposed tooth or implant. Crowns come in a variety of materials, with gold, porcelain, and zirconium being the most common. Gold is soft and durable; the most common material is complete porcelain, but not as durable. Neither looks natural. These often have a dark line in which the crown crosses the gum, which can be seen by a healthy tooth.
Zirconium crowns look very and are the obvious choice for your new crown.
What are Zirconium Veneers?
Solid zirconium blocks are shaped into the correct tooth shape and baked at an extremely high temperature. The process ensures that they are almost unbreakable, which makes them significantly better than porcelain crowns since they can withstand the grinding stress. The crown is then coated in porcelain to maintain natural colour and attached in your gum to an abutment (either a fake tooth stub or a part of a real tooth). The crown reflects light in the same way as a natural tooth, which means that it blends completely with the adjacent real teeth. However, the zirconium crowns do not corrode, which means that you will not hesitate to smile unless a dark line emerges next to the gum like the other crowns. Another advantage of these crown types is that they can be attached to bulkier abutments because they have more strength by volume than porcelain.
