In addition to their cosmetic advantages, ceramics are typically safer for use in the human body than using other materials.
Crowns made from ceramics do not tend to irritate the gums, cause metal allergies, nor damage the opposing teeth when chewing. Choosing ceramics is easy when you consider their safety and excellent biocompatibility.
Ceramic With Zirconia
Our clinic uses ceramic crowns attached to a zirconia frame. Zirconium dioxide is an ultra-hard material that provides a durable core for the outer ceramic surface.
Unlike past generations of porcelain crowns, that would often use a metal core (PFM), a frame made of zirconia is naturally white and translucent, allowing it to absorb and reflect light more naturally. This gives the tooth a superior appearance.
