Zirconia Crown

Zirconia Crown

Zirconia crowns are a type of dental crown made from a strong, durable ceramic material called zirconium dioxide. Zirconia is a biocompatible material that is used in a variety of medical applications due to its strength, durability, and natural-looking appearance.

Zirconia crowns are often used to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay, injury, or wear and tear. They are known for their excellent aesthetic qualities, as they closely resemble the color and translucency of natural teeth.

They are also resistant to chipping and breaking, making them a good choice for restoring back teeth that are subjected to a lot of biting force.
