Metal Free Dental Crowns

Zirconia crowns are dental prostheses that are made entirely of zirconium oxide, a type of ceramic material. Unlike traditional crowns made of metal or synthetic materials, zirconia crowns are completely metal-free and biocompatible, which means they are unlikely to cause allergies or adverse reactions.

One of the key advantages of zirconia crowns is their aesthetic appeal. The natural white tone of zirconia closely resembles the color of a natural tooth, making the crown blend seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. This is particularly beneficial for front teeth where a highly visible crown may not be desirable. Additionally, zirconia crowns are resistant to discoloration and wear, ensuring their long-term durability.

It’s important to note that when we refer to ceramic crowns, we specifically mean full ceramic crowns, not veneer crowns. Full ceramic crowns consist entirely of ceramic, whereas veneer crowns have a metal framework with a ceramic veneer. In the field of biological dentistry, which focuses on metal-free alternatives, full ceramic crowns are preferred.

In summary, zirconia crowns offer several advantages including biocompatibility, aesthetic appeal, and exceptional stability and durability.
