The Advantages of Zirconium Crowns

Posted on 6/5/2023 by SRD Muscle Shoals
The Advantages of Zirconium CrownsDental crowns and implants are routinely used to replace missing or rotting teeth. These crowns can also be used as anchors for dental bridges and partial dentures.

Zirconium allergies will be less of a worry because the metal is not rejected by the body's immune system. Moreover, zirconium conceals tooth discoloration and fractures better than porcelain.


Zirconium's crystal structure makes it virtually unbreakable, even when subjected to the most violent chewing and biting. Zirconium is five times more durable than porcelain! Crowns that are made of zirconium are almost impenetrable. In addition, they can withstand extreme hot and cold conditions, reducing the likelihood of dental hypersensitivity.


Zirconium crowns are more durable than porcelain crowns and endure longer. Zinc is a better choice because it is more resistant to fracturing and chipping than aluminum.

Intuitive and Easy to Work With

Despite their robust construction, Zirconium crowns can be easily molded, reshaped, and colored to match the patient's natural teeth. Patient appearance is greatly improved by being able to design the perfect facial features in shape, size, and color.

Aesthetically Attractive

Being created from crystal, zirconium crowns are translucent. Zirconium's good, clear look provides a more precise match to the patient's natural tooth color than gold or porcelain crowns would allow.

Metal is Not Required

Zirconium crowns do not have to be welded to a metal basis like gold or porcelain crowns; therefore, they are less conspicuous. Zirconium crowns provide the same comfort, security, feel, durability, and beauty as natural teeth.
