What is Zirconia Crown?
Zirconia Crowns are crowns that cover the tooth or a dental implant, which are used for the purpose of restoring the misshapen, broken, or weak tooth, and dentists recommend it for the same reason. For strengthening multiple teeth, these can also be used in conjunction with the bridges.
Materials used in making the crowns involve metal and ceramic, and apart from that, now the patients have one more option, and that is zirconia. These are generally made of zirconium dioxide, which is a durable type of metal related to titanium; it is categorized under ceramic crown type.
How are Zirconia Crowns Placed?
Initially, the dentist will take the X-ray of your mouth and will prepare the tooth for further procedure. Based on the patient's condition, the dentist might also recommend him/her to get a local anesthetic. She will then remove the outer layer of the tooth if necessary and will make the impression of the tooth.
Once it is done, she will then install the temporary crown on your broken tooth and gives you the date for the next visit; meanwhile, she will get the crown ready through your impression from the dental lab. During your second visit to the office, they will cement it on your tooth.
When this is done, she will take the pictures and prepare your tooth for the procedure, which may include a local anesthetic. Then she will use the digital scan from the photo to create the crown in the office, and then finally, she will cement the crown in the place.
