Dental crowns made of zirconia are a highly durable and aesthetically pleasing option for restoring damaged or decayed teeth. At DC Family Dental, our team utilizes zirconia crowns to provide patients with a reliable and natural-looking solution that enhances both function and appearance.

Benefits of Zirconia Dental Crowns
Zirconia crowns offer several significant advantages:

  • Exceptional Strength: Zirconia is one of the strongest materials used in dentistry, providing long-lasting durability and resistance to wear.
  • Natural Appearance: These crowns are designed to match the color and translucency of natural teeth, ensuring a seamless blend with your smile.
  • Biocompatibility: Zirconia is highly biocompatible, minimizing the risk of allergic reactions and promoting healthy gum tissue.
  • Minimal Tooth Reduction: The strength of zirconia allows for thinner crowns, meaning less natural tooth structure needs to be removed during preparation.

The Zirconia Crown Procedure
The process of receiving a zirconia crown involves several key steps:

  1. Initial Consultation: Dr. Mayur Patel will evaluate your tooth and discuss the best treatment options.
  2. Tooth Preparation: The affected tooth is shaped to accommodate the crown, and impressions are taken to create a precise mold.
  3. Temporary Crown: A temporary crown is placed to protect the tooth while the permanent zirconia crown is being fabricated.
  4. Crown Placement: Once ready, the zirconia crown is cemented onto the prepared tooth, adjusted for fit and comfort and polished to match your natural teeth.
