Zirconium ceramics

WHY CHOOSE ZIRCONIUM CERAMICS:

BECAUSE zirconium is coated with a layer of ceramics of the highest quality.

 

BECAUSE it has a very high hardness and resistance (it was first used in space technology, where it is still represented)

BECAUSE it has biocompatibility with human tissue and bone, so it does not cause any allergic reactions.

 

BECAUSE due to the pulling the gums over time, the edge of the metal is not visible in zirconium ceramics, which ensures that, in the aesthetic sense, the restorations can last longer.

 

BECAUSE in the case of zirconium ceramics, the impression is scanned and computer generated, which guarantees greater precision of the entire work. The edge of the metal-free crown is perfectly prepared, precisely because of the computer processing, which aims at a perfect relationship between the edge of the crown and the gums.

 

BECAUSE the surface of the zirconium ceramic restoration does not have any microcracks in its structure, which prevents the formation of deposits on the surface and their negative impact on the gums

 

 

1. What is zirconium ceramics?


Zirconium ceramic crowns or bridges are a more modern solution than metal-ceramic ones, where zirconium is used instead of metal to support the crown. Zirconium is one of the hardest materials and was primarily used in space technology. It is completely biocompatible with the organism and does not cause any kind of allergic reactions. In the process of making zirconium ceramic crowns, modern technology is used, which includes computer scanning of prints and micron precision during making. 
 

2. Advantages and disadvantages of ziconium ceramics?


Numerous advantages provided by zirconium ceramic crowns are: exceptional aesthetic effect, computer precision manufacturing, reduced gum irritation, high degree of strength.
 

All the advantages are on the side of these crowns, the only drawback that can influence the patient to opt for this type of crown is their price.

 

3. What is the difference between zircon and metal?


Metal is a material that can cause discoloration of the gums around the edge of the crown, which is not the case with zircon. In about 30% of cases, some of the metals that make up the alloy can cause an allergic reaction, while zircon is a biocompatible natural material. Also, due to the impossibility of transmitting light through the crown, metal is an aesthetically less satisfactory solution compared to zircon.
 

4. Why is the aesthetics of ziconium ceramic crowns better than metal-ceramic ones?


Zirconium oxide as a natural material is most similar to natural tooth. Due to the absence of metal under the ceramic, the tooth got transparency and a natural look, so it is difficult to distinguish it from other natural teeth. It transmits light perfectly and fits perfectly into the rest of the dentition.

5. Why is zircon ceramic more expensive than metal ceramic?


The complex procedure of making zirconium ceramic crowns in the laboratory, as well as the price of zircon itself, leads to the fact that these crowns are more expensive compared to metal-ceramic ones.
 

6. Is zircon good for crowns on lateral teeth?

 

For bridges on the lateral teeth where we have larger ranges, we can use zirconium metal-free crowns, because zirconium is a material of high strength (1300 Mpa).

 

7. What is the lifespan of zirconium ceramics?


Zirconium ceramic crowns do not have a limited lifespan, but since there is your tooth under each crown, the condition of the tooth can change over time, which sometimes requires replacement of the crown itself.
 

8. Can zircon brake and what if it brakes?


Although it is a very resistant material, zircon cracking can occur in cases of bruxism in patients. The forces that occur when gnashing teeth during the night are too great and act in unfavorable directions. Then there is usually a rupture, and then during the day, a small force can break off the ruptured part. In that case, contact your dentist, who will offer you an adequate solution.
 

9. What if I gnash my teeth at night and break the crowns?


If you gnash your teeth at night, it is necessary to inform your dentist in time so that the crowns do not crack. Then protective foils (splints) are made which protect your crowns from the harmful effects of bruxism overnight.

 

10. What is the warranty on the zircon crown?


The warranty on the zirconium ceramic crown is 5 years. This applies exclusively to mechanical damage of the crowns.
 

11. When do zirconium ceramic crowns change?


Zirconium ceramic crowns do not have a specific lifespan, but over time, changes in oral structures occur, which makes them inadequate and the crowns must be replaced. Proper maintenance of oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist will improve the longevity of work
 

12. Is it complicated to remove zirconium ceramic crowns?

 

The procedure for removing zirconium ceramic crowns is simple and painless.


13. How are zirconium ceramic crowns made?

 

Dental crowns are made in the dental technique, and in order to make them, it is necessary to sharpen the tooth and take an impression. The impression is technically scanned using a computer. The base of the crown is made of zirconium, and the rest of the standard ceramics, which allows a great combination of aesthetics and strength provided by zircon. Due to the computer design, perfect precision is achieved in the edge fit and the relation to the gums without microcracks.

 

14. Is there a possibility of allergy to zirconium ceramic crowns?


Zirconium ceramic crowns are completely biocompatible with the body and do not cause allergic reactions.
 

15. Can the gums around the crown darken from the zircon?


The gums cannot darken around the zirconium ceramic crowns, because zirconium is made of zirconium dioxide, which is a natural white material. Unlike metal-ceramic crowns, zircon does not change the color of the gums or cause their retraction.

16. Can these crowns be done on implants?


As they are made on the patient's teeth, zirconium ceramic crowns can also be made on implants.
 

17. Can zircon ceramics be cemented with temporary cement?


Cementation of zirconium ceramic crowns with temporary cement is not recommended. The reason for that is premature loosening of the cement, which can lead to displacement or breakage of the crown. 

 

18. How much of the tooth is grounded to make zirconium ceramic crowns?

 

For the production of zirconium ceramic crowns, it is necessary to remove less tooth substance, ie grinding in relation to the metal ceramic crown.


19. Do teeth have to be killed when zirconium ceramic crowns are placed?


When making zirconium crowns, it is not necessary to kill the tooth, because zircon does not have a harmful effect on the tooth pulp.

20. Do zircon crowns change color over time?


Due to the stable chemical structure, the color of zirconium ceramic crowns does not change over time.
 

21. Can I choose the color and shape of zirconium ceramic crowns?


Zircon, since the base of the crown was made, as well as ceramics that represent the surface layer, exist in several different colors, so the color of the finished crowns can be adjusted to the patient's wishes. The shape of the crown is also something that can be adjusted to the patient's requirements.
 

22. What is the price for one zirconium ceramic crown?


The price of one zirconium ceramic crown is 190e on a tooth or 220e when it is made on an implant.
