blog single image

Zirconia dental crowns and bridges are used to treat and protect the affected teeth due to decay or fractures, etc, In this article we will learn about the advantages and drawbacks of Zirconia Crowns and bridges .

What is Dental Zirconia made of?

Dental zirconia is made of Zirconium silicate (ZrSiO4), and becoming increasingly common, as well as they do offer some advantages:

  • Strength
  • Longevity
  • Biocompatibility
  • Same-day procedure
  • No allergy to minerals
  • nonreactive

Dental zirconia types

  • Yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) dential
  • Zirconia toughened alumina)ZTA)
  • Magnesium cation-doped partially stabilized zirconia (Mg-PSZ)
  • Cubic stabilized zirconia (CSZ)
Dental zirconia types

In Ilajak Medical, we offer a wide range of dental crown & bridge options for all ages and preferences, Zircon is one of the finest materials used in dentistry, it can be used alone, or mixed with other materials.

Zirconia dental bridge:

Other types of dental bridge insufficiency in the strength and durability that posterior restorations demand. For example, lithium disilicate is normally only suitable for anterior restorations. Occasionally, depending on circumstances, these dental ceramics will fail in the connector area. Therefore, increasing the connector size may affect aesthetics and functionality. Zirconia has conquered these problems. Zircon bridges are ideally designed to replace lost teeth.

So these bridges are installed on the remaining natural teeth, or through implants, In case there is no normal teeth. In this article, we will write about dental porcelain and its advantages and drawbacks.

What is a zirconia crown?

Zirconia is a relatively new material that combines the strength of metal with the aesthetics of ceramic crowns. Zirconia has become highly transparent, and layered zirconium crowns have recently become a more popular choice.

Ilajak Medical is therefore keen to carefully assess each case to provide the most appropriate treatment.

Dental zirconia coloring

  • In Ilajak Medical, we use the latest color guide called 3D-Master or VITA similar to the one pictured above. Natural tooth color is bone color, much darker than most people realize, and the success of treatment relies on choosing the right color for your new crowns, bridges, or Veneer unless you want to completely change teeth.
  • Front teeth often have different shades of color, and that differs from person to person. In Ilajak Medical, we make sure to match the color shades of all crowns accurately with each tooth, so that they fit perfectly with the rest of the teeth.

  • Possible erosion of other teeth. In some circumstances, some dentists are reluctant to use zirconia crowns for fear that zirconia stiffness will cause the corresponding teeth to erode.

Zirconia dental implants problems

  1. The toughness of the material has raised a few concerns about friction against the tooth root and wearing down contradicting teeth.
  2. The material does not do well in low-temperature or humid environments. when exposed for long periods to cold temperatures, the material loses durability. However, there have not been many tests done in terms of the long-term use of these products.
  3. Installing Zirconia implants in substandard locations can negatively affect the material.
  4. High cost compared to other coating types.
  5. Difficulty in detecting tooth decay under the coating or crowns.

 Zirconia crown preparation

  1. Local anesthesia will be used in the treatment area.
  2. After the anesthesia takes effect, preparation of the tooth begins.
  3. An impression is taken by the dentist of the treatment area and the surrounding teeth.
  4. Place a temporary crown on the tooth, until the zirconia crown and bridge are prepared.
  5. Zirconia crowns and bridges are prepared manually or via computer.
  6. In Ilajak medical, zirconia crown and bridges are prepared in the shortest possible time, using the latest technology.
  7. The dentist installs the crown of the zirconium on the pre-prepared tooth and fixes it with dental cement.

Before zirconia crown preparation

  • Tasks are distributed before installation, between the dentist and the patient.
  • For the dentists, they should give special attention to the preparation of the tooth, the preparation of the anterior teeth is different from the posterior ones, and generally, when preparing the tooth for zirconia crown and bridge, make sure that there is enough space for the thickness of the wall to be at a minimum of 0.5 mm, at least between 1 mm and 1.5 mm, or 1.5 to 2 mm to reduce the occlusion.
  • During one visit, a temporary crown can be installed, and the permanent crown can be installed on the next visit.
  • Furthermore, your doctor will treat any infection or inflamed tissue.
  • The area below the tooth should be clean and healthy before installing the crown.
  • The patient's tasks are to keep the teeth clean, temporary dental prosthodontics until the end of treatment, as well as follow instructions.

After zirconia crown installation

  • Zirconia's crown and bridges are known to be long-term, so those interested in this treatment must be fully aware of zircon's characteristics and care methods to preserve it.
  • Zircon crowns are designed to protect teeth from increased damage, so they need to be properly installed, to avoid complications.
  • Zirconia Crown and Bridges errors cannot be ignored but must be treated immediately for patient safety.
  • Doctors should thoroughly examine crown margins to avoid possible errors during installation.
  • If the crown is not properly installed, this allows saliva and bacteria to enter the crown from margins or spaces, and this can lead to tooth decay and infections.

Can zirconia crowns be whitened?

  • Traditional teeth whitening methods do not work on zirconium, porcelain, or other materials used in dentistry, making it impossible to whiten zirconia teeth after installation.
  • Zircon teeth resist spots caused by coffee, tea, and nicotine much better than ceramic or acrylic crowns, which is very important for those who prefer a natural smile and give it the highest priority.
  • Adjustments to the crown color may be necessary over time, as natural teeth change due to staining or aging.

Zirconia crown vs Porcelain crown

  • Although porcelain and metal teeth have some advantages, this type does not provide the same aesthetic results as zirconia, due to its durability and exceptional strength.
  • Zirconium crowns generally last longer than porcelain, while porcelain crowns usually need to be replaced after a few years.
  • Zirconium crowns showed a 99% survival rate after five years.
  • Zirconium crowns are multicolored and very transparent.

Zirconia dental implants vs Titanium

Titanium has been around longer, has more clinical studies and examinations, and decades of evidence proving it as a dependable and successful biomaterial for dental implants. However, Zirconia is emerging as a promising alternative to conventional titanium-based implant systems. In addition, Zirconia has been observed to have superior soft-tissue response, biocompatibility, and esthetics to that of titanium implants.

A Zirconia crown is a nickel-free crown
Yes, but this characteristic of Zirconia enables your Dentist to examine a crown under X-ray or CBCT scan and to determine if there are problems with the underlying root/tooth.
Zirconia crowns are made of Zirconium silicate (ZrSiO4) and may be required when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth. Crowns are typically bonded to the tooth by dental cement
In the Philippines, the cost starts at €135 per one tooth for zirconia crowns and bridges.
Normally, these dental crowns last for about ten to fifteen years.
After the dentist removes the temporary crown from the tooth, then clean the main tooth and the surrounding teeth well. The dentist cleans the teeth first, dries them by isolating them from saliva, and applying a desensitizer to secure the crown as permanently as possible. When the tooth dries completely, the dentist can put the permanent crown on the tooth, and check for contact between the teeth, and uses dental floss to make sure the crown is properly fitted.
Although porcelain crowns have some advantages, this type does not provide the same aesthetic results as zirconia crowns, due to its durability and exceptional strength, and zirconia prosthodontics generally lasts longer than porcelain.
Adhesives must be applied to the crown evenly on the inner surface, to avoid air bubbles, and not more than half full. The crown is firmly placed on a clean, isolated, and dry tooth directly, providing great strength and constant pressure to ensure full positioning and disposal of excess adhesive. And the dentist sheds the light for 20 or 30 seconds so that the adhesive holds together faster and better. Once the adhesive is firm, the excess is removed away from the margins, using hand tools, and the inter-thread areas are cleaned.
