Zirconia Crowns are one of the most popular type of aesthetic dental crown which is widely used in contemporary dentistry. They are highly aesthetic and also have great mechanical strength, which allows us to use them not only for front teeth, but also high load bearing areas such as molar teeth.
In Estetik İncim Dental Centre Turkey, our expert dentists work in a great collaboration with our dental technicians. We prepare Zirconia crowns in the shortest durations in our in-clinic dental laboratory which is equipped with the latest technology 3D design and milling devices.
Zirconia crowns can be prepared in 3 different forms;
- Porcelain Veneered Zirconia Crowns
- Monolithic Zirconia Crowns
- Multilayered Zirconia Crowns
PORCELAIN VENEERED ZIRCONIA CROWNS
Porcelain Fused to Zirconia Crown is one of the most popular type of aesthetic dental crown which consists of porcelain layers applied over a zirconia base. Even though zirconia is a strong white metal and can be used solely without any additional porcelain, it may not provide the excellent aesthetics as porcelains do. Therefore, the combination of porcelain and zirconia used more commonly in aesthetically important areas. In this combination, zirconia base provides the durability and porcelain layers provide the great aesthetics.
MONOLITHIC ZIRCONIA CROWNS
Monolithic Zirconia Crowns are made of solid zirconia blocks, without any additional porcelain layers. The zirconia blocks are sold as either in the homogenous or multilayered form. Multilayered zirconia crowns provide excellent natural aesthetics compared to solid uniform zirconia crowns as their transparency is similar to a natural tooth.
Even though zirconia can be used solely without any additional porcelain layers on top, it may not provide the excellent aesthetics as porcelains do. Therefore, in Estetik İncim Dental Centre Turkey, we use the combination of porcelain and zirconia more commonly in aesthetic cases. In this combination, zirconia base provides the durability and porcelain layers provide the great aesthetics.
