Full Zirconia Crowns

Dental CrownDental crowns may be needed for a variety of reasons, including to protect a weak or decaying tooth, to restore a worn, chipped or broken tooth, or to support a tooth with a large filling. Dental crowns may also be used for cosmetic dental procedures, such as to cover a dental implant or hold a dental bridge in place.

There are a number of different materials used for the creation of custom dental crowns, spanning from metals, such as gold alloy or stainless steel, to tooth-colored crowns comprised of porcelain or ceramic. Zirconium, a durable, malleable and biocompatible metal, is now becoming one of the dental industry’s top choices when it comes to the fabrication of dental crowns due to its strength, natural-looking appearance, and compatibility with one’s body.

Here are a few of the benefits of full zirconia crowns compared to other options, such as porcelain or metal alloys:


The durability of full zirconia crowns is hard to beat. The material is extraordinarily tough and can endure a tremendous amount of wear and tear and are virtually indestructible once hardened and set in place. Compared to porcelain crowns, zirconia crowns are more robust and longer lasting, boasting a durability that is at least five times stronger than porcelain fused to metal.


One of the greatest advantages of full zirconia crowns are their natural-looking appearance. Compared to gold or porcelain fused to metal crowns, zirconium looks more aesthetically pleasing, which is especially beneficial for patients receiving dental crowns in the visible areas of their mouths.


Zirconium can be easily modified by our lab technicians to match the exact color, shape and size of your natural teeth, so you can rest assured that your smile looks natural as well as functional. Zirconium is milled from a solid block of the material to the exact size and shape of your tooth, then heated at a high temperature to cure the material to its final stage. Its translucent properties also make it helpful to match the shading of your natural teeth.


Full zirconia crowns are biocompatible, meaning that they pose no threat and cause no harm to one’s body. The gum tissue adapts a lot better around a zirconia crown than any other material. The Full zirconia crowns are a safe tooth replacement solution that will never lead to adverse effects in one’s body like other foreign materials can.

Zirconia crowns also allows the dentist to remove far less tooth structure therefore preserving the tooth. They are an excellent dental crown alternative to porcelain, gold or other metal alloy materials.
