Why Use Zirconia?
Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns are widely used in dentistry today. However, they have some drawbacks. The metal is often visible as a gray or silver ring at the bottom of the crown, which makes it obvious the crown is not real. Further, porcelain can wear down over time, leaving previously shiny crowns a dull color that stands out from the other teeth for the wrong reasons. Porcelain has also been known to separate from the metal underneath, making replacement of the restoration necessary.
Zirconia, on the other hand, does not present these issues. Instead, it appears more lifelike than other materials and keeps that appearance for many years. Few alternatives are as durable or long-lasting as zirconia when it comes to restorations. They’re the closest option to natural teeth that you’ll find.
Fixed for Unmatched Stability
A bridge is a row of three or more crowns that are connected together and is used to replace the form and function of missing teeth. Unlike dentures, which are held in place by suction or adhesives but can come loose during conversations or meals, zirconia fixed bridges are designed to be permanently anchored in your mouth. You won’t have to worry about them slipping out of place and embarrassing you when your bridges are attached to dental implants, the one tooth replacement option that offers you true peace of mind. Isn’t that what you’re looking for?
