Crowns made with zirconia, or zirconium provide a strong and esthetic upgrade from previous versions of Porcelain Fused to Metal or PFM crowns. The primary advantage that we can see with Zirconia Crowns is that they are milled from a scan as opposed to cast from an impression. The accuracy and fit is much superior, and the esthetic advantage over metal core crowns is incredible.
Zirconia crowns are milled from a solid piece of zirconia. They are either finished with a top layer of porcelain, or finished in pure zirconia. As they are made from either a direct scan of your tooth, or a scan of a high accuracy impression, the resulting seal and fit is superior to that of a basic cast crown. We use only the highest quality laboratory work to provide you with a long lasting, beautiful restoration.
