Zirconia dental crowns are being used more than ever during cosmetic procedures to repair or replace missing teeth. Dentists have started to use zirconia because of the many benefits it offers. It is easy to use and allows the dentist to replace missing teeth and repair those broken or that have imperfections. Using zirconia is also an affordable option when you consider how durable it is. Residents living in the Colorado Springs, Colorado area can visit Dr. Mark Wright at Mark H Wright DDS to learn more about zirconia dental crowns.
Zirconia is easily tinted and can be used to create crowns that are similar in color to the teeth surrounding them. Zirconia is a unique material that looks and acts like natural dental enamel. By using it to create dental crowns, your dentist can repair damaged teeth and replace missing ones. When several teeth are missing in one area, bridges are used to fill in the more significant gaps.
Several materials are used in the creation of crowns. Resins and dental composites are used for temporary crowns. Ceramic and gold are also common materials chosen to create crowns. While gold is sometimes more expensive and ceramic may break or chip, crowns made of zirconia are much more durable and will resist chipping, staining, and breaking.
When a dentist makes repairs to your teeth or uses dental bridges and crowns to replace missing ones, the results are expected to last for several years. Temporary crowns may only last for a year or two. Metal crowns may last indefinitely. Crowns made of ceramic and zirconia can last anywhere from five to ten years, depending on how you care for your teeth.
