What Is A Zirconia Crown?
As part of the titanium family, zirconia is a metal that can be found worldwide. Because of its ability to be molded and shaped, it is an ideal material to use when creating crowns or caps for your teeth.

Are Zirconia Crowns Good?
Dental crowns that are made out of zirconia are extremely resilient. The material is easily shaped and tint can be added that allows it to blend in with your natural teeth. Their translucent appearance allows them to blend in with the surrounding teeth.

What Is the Best Material for a Crown?
Zirconia is one of the best materials for a dental crown because it can withstand long periods of wear and tear. A zirconia crown can be applied to your tooth and adjusted by the dentist without sending it away to be reshaped.

How Long Will a Zirconia Crown Last?
Because of its toughness and durability, a zirconia crown can last for many years with proper care. They can last as much as five times longer than crowns made of porcelain. Zirconia is much more durable and versatile than porcelain which allows it to remain in place for a longer period of time without being damaged or broken.

What Is the Cost of a Zirconia Crown?
Zirconia crowns are extremely expensive, sometimes costing as much as $1000 per unit. There are many discount dental plans that can shave off a large portion of the cost if you are a subscriber.

A zirconia dental crown is one of the best choices if you have the money to invest in the procedure. Their extended longevity and adaptability make them well worth the money. Even though zirconia is much more expensive than other dental materials, more dentists are using it due to its adaptability and overall strength. Zirconia can be molded and adjusted while you are sitting in the chair. There is no need to send it out to a lab for alterations. Everything can be performed by the dentist during your appointment.
