The zirconium crowns are ultra-modern and very effective solutions to replace missing teeth that will make you smile more often and will make others compliment you. The zirconium crowns were first used in 1998 in the dental clinic at the University of Zurich (Switzerland), and from that time on its popularity grew steadily.
The name of this crown makes many patients believe that it is made entirely of zirconium. While in reality, only the inside is made of zirconium, but the outside is made of ceramic. The combination of these two materials offers new teeth with high resistance and anesthetic, incomparable to any other type of dental crown.

How Durable Are Zirconium Crowns?
Thanks to its mechanical properties, zirconium oxide is undoubtedly the material offering the greatest resistance and solidity. As a result, you may use zirconium crowns for more than 15 years and that means they have a much longer life than other dental crowns.
What Are the Main Differences Between Dental Crowns and Dental Veneers?
Both crowns and veneers are dental restoration materials and use to cover an existing tooth to improve its appearance or function. The dental crown is used to strengthen a damaged tooth, while veneers are mainly used for cosmetic improvements. Dental crowns cover the entire visible part of the tooth while the veneers are an ultra-thin layer produced to cover the front of a tooth.
