Zirconia Crowns

The most reliable form of crowning currently available.

Bridges and Crowns

Bridges and crowns are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants by a dentist. Crowns are used most commonly to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth or cover an implant. Bridges are commonly used to cover a space if there are one or more missing teeth.

Benefits of Bridges and Crowns

In addition to strengthening a damaged tooth, bridges and crowns can be used to improve a tooth's appearance, shape, alignment and dental occlusion (bite). Gaps left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to move, which can result in an altered bite. Bridges and crowns help prevent this from happening.

Advantages of Zirconia Crowns

Zirconia has some distinct advantages as a material for crowns:

  • It can be matched to the colour of existing teeth.
  • It is extremely strong, requiring less tooth preparation than other materials.
  • It can be layered with porcelain, further improving its aesthetic appearance.
  • Zirconia crowns can be bonded or cemented, giving your dentist more options.
  • This material is biocompatible, meaning it does not cause adverse reactions.
