Zirconia is one of the most popular materials for restorations in modern dentistry.
Compared to full-metal, all-ceramic, and porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations, zirconia is stronger, more durable, and more aesthetically pleasing.
Zirconia is an excellent material for nearly all types of general and cosmetic dental restorations, including Crowns and Bridges.
The team of experts at Luxury Dental, PC, in addition to most dentists, lab technicians, and patients, consider Zirconia to be the material of choice for restorative treatments.
As a newer and more technologically advanced material, zirconia restorations have a number of advantages.
Like noble metal restorations, zirconia can withstand the immense pressure of your biting force, making them excellent for restoring teeth in the back of your mouth. They also withstand that pressure without wearing down your opposing teeth, and they’re generally more resistant to wear than gold.
Unlike noble metal restorations, they’re much more aesthetically pleasing, with a translucency that’s similar to natural tooth enamel, stain resistance, and the ability to be shade-matched to blend in with the rest of your teeth. This makes them an excellent material for restoring teeth in the front of your mouth without damaging the cosmetic integrity of your smile.
Getting a zirconia restoration at Luxury Dental, PC is just like getting any other type of restoration.
Once your dentist prepares the tooth, they take an impression and send it to a dental lab. The lab uses that impression and latest computer technology to fabricate your zirconia restoration in 3-D technology creating a perfect fit that blends in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Your dentist gives you a temporary restoration while you wait for the lab to finish constructing your zirconium restoration, which only takes a couple of weeks. When your zirconia restoration is ready, your dentist permanently seals it to your tooth.
