Dental Crowns Mexico . Tijuana
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. Cosmetic dental procedures may usher in a need for dental crowns as well, such as the need to cover a dental implant or hold a dental bridge in place.
Often times a multitude of different materials are used to comprise these dental crowns, ranging from metals (such as gold alloy or stainless steel) to tooth-colored crowns comprised of 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, compatibility with one’s body, and strength.
Below are just a few of the many benefits of full zirconia crowns in comparison to other options like metal alloys or porcelain:
It’s difficult to beat the durability of full ceramic zirconia crowns. For starters, the material is exceedingly resilient and can endure a tremendous amount of wear and tear. Zirconia crowns are virtually indestructible once hardened and fixed into place. In comparison to traditional porcelain crowns, zirconia crowns are longer lasting and more robust, comprising a durability that is at minimum five times stronger than traditional porcelain fused to metal.
The organic-looking appearance of full ceramic zirconia crowns makes them a favorite with patients. In comparison to gold or porcelain fused to metal crowns, zirconium looks much more aesthetically pleasing. This of course is especially advantageous for patients who are receiving dental crowns in the visible areas of their mouths.
Our expert lab technicians can easily modify zirconium to match the exact size, shape, and color of your natural teeth– so you can rest assured that your smile looks both organic and functional. Zirconium is milled from a solid block of the material to the exact shape and size of your tooth, then heated at a high temperature to cure the material to its final stage. Zirconium’s translucent properties also make it adaptable to match the shading and color of your natural teeth.
Full zirconia crowns are biocompatible– meaning that they pose no threat to one’s body. A person’s natural gum tissue adapts a lot better around a zirconia crown than any other material. Unlike foreign materials, full zirconia crowns are a safe tooth replacement solution that will never lead to adverse effects in 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.
