Zirconium crowns are a versatile prosthesis preferred by most patients. Such popularity is due to the increased strength characteristics of crowns, full biocompatibility and high precision of their manufacture, which is provided by CAD / CAM technologies.
Zirconium crowns are made of zirconium dioxide, the raw material for which is the natural mineral ZrSiO4. In order to improve its performance characteristics, it is stabilized with yttrium and enriched with aluminum, due to which such material indicators as bending strength, stiffness, hardness are significantly increased.
Two types of crowns can be made on the basis of zirconium: two-layer and monolithic. The former consist of a zirconium framework on which a ceramic layer is applied. They have a number of disadvantages, so they are practically not used at present.
Monolithic crowns are completely made of zirconium dioxide, which allows to obtain a structure with increased strength. Today, manufacturers offer a large selection of translucent dicosidzirconium blocks for the manufacture of crowns using CAD / CAM technology, which allows creating products that are identical to natural teeth.
Zirconium dioxide dental crowns have a number of advantages:
The creation of zirconia crowns is fully automated. To do this, dentistry uses CAD / CAM technology, with the help of which a crown can be made and installed in one visit.
The main stages of this process are:
The installation of crowns is carried out in several stages:
Installation of zirconium crowns is not performed in the following cases:
Zirconium crowns are metal-free microprostheses that are ideal for restoring the aesthetic characteristics and functionality of anterior teeth and molars, while having minimal contraindications for installation. The process of creating crowns in our dental clinic is fully automated, so we guarantee our patients maximum comfort at all stages: from the beginning of treatment to wearing them. The unprecedented precision of manufacturing zirconia crowns is achieved through the use of modern CAD / CAM technology.
