Dental Crown

Zirconium crowns are a type of dental restoration made from a pure white metal core, typically zirconium oxide, which is then fused with porcelain to create a natural-looking tooth. Sometimes, zirconium crowns can be made from 100% zirconium without the need for porcelain. These crowns are known for their strength, durability, and aesthetic appeal.

Advantages of Zirconium Crowns:

  • No visible dark line at the gum line, even if the gums recede over time, unlike traditional metal crowns.
  • Extreme durability, suitable for any part of the mouth.
  • Natural-looking appearance, making them ideal for visible front teeth.

Zirconium Crown Smile Design:

In smile design, zirconium crowns are integral in enhancing the overall appearance by adjusting the gum line, achieving symmetry, and optimizing the shape, color, and alignment of teeth. Laser gum contouring can be used for a more symmetrical gum line, contributing to a harmonious smile when combined with the lifelike quality of zirconium crowns.

Procedure and Timing:

The process typically requires one week and involves three appointments. Depending on individual needs, additional visits may be scheduled by the Dental Clinic in Istanbul to ensure perfection in the final outcome.

Uses of Zirconium in Dental Treatments:

Zirconium's superior aesthetic qualities make it a favored choice for addressing deep intrinsic stains and structural issues in teeth that whitening cannot correct. It is also used for crafting crowns and bridges, particularly in prostheses for the front teeth, enhancing smile aesthetics dramatically.

Durability and Repair:

While zirconium crowns are highly durable, like natural teeth, they can suffer damage under excessive or abnormal forces. Such damages are repairable in a dental clinic. If decay or loss of tooth substance occurs beneath the crown, it can be addressed, and the crown can be securely reattached.

Lifespan and Warranty of Zirconium Crowns:

Zirconium crowns typically last 15-20 years with proper care but may need replacement due to anatomical changes or gum recession. When replacement is necessary, any damage to the underlying teeth will be repaired, and new crowns will be adapted to the current gum line conditions.

Warranty periods for zirconium crowns generally extend up to five years, during which the clinic offers free replacements in case of any complications, provided that the care guidelines are followed.
