What diagnosis leads to the Zirconium/Emax Crowns?

Zirconium/Emax crowns are usually recommended as a treatment option for a variety of dental issues, such as:

  • Teeth that are cracked or chipped may require a crown to prevent further damage and restore their appearance and function.

  • Teeth that are severely discolored or stained.

  • When a tooth has extensive decay or damage that cannot be repaired with a filling.

  • When a tooth has a large filling, it may be weakened and at risk of fracturing. 

  • Teeth that have had root canal treatment may require a crown to protect and strengthen the tooth.

What is the Procedure for the Zirconium/Emax Crowns?

The procedure for placing Zirconium/Emax crowns typically involves the following steps:

Step 1: The affected tooth is prepared by removing any decayed or damaged areas and shaping the tooth to fit the crown.

Step 2: An impression of the prepared tooth and surrounding teeth is taken to create a custom-made Zirconium/Emax crown that fits perfectly.

Step 3: A temporary crown may be placed on the tooth.

Step 4: Once the Zirconium/Emax crown is ready, the temporary crown is removed, and the permanent crown is placed on the tooth. The dentist will ensure that the crown fits properly and feels comfortable.

Step 5: After the crown is placed, the patient is instructed on how to care for the crown and maintain good oral hygiene. 

What are the Risks & Complications Associated with the Zirconium/Emax Crowns?

The risks and complications associated with Zirconium/Emax Crowns include;

  • Decay can occur if the crown is not properly fitted or if there is a gap between the crown and the tooth.

  • The crown may become loose or fall off if it is not properly fitted.

  • The tooth's nerve may be damaged during the crown preparation process, leading to sensitivity or pain.

  • The crown may cause discomfort or soreness, especially during the first few days 

What to Expect After Zirconium/Emax Crowns?

After getting Zirconium/Emax crowns, patients can expect:

  • Some numbness in the area that was treated, which can take a few hours to wear off.

  • It may take some time to adjust to the new crown, and patients may need to get used to the feel of the crown in their mouth.

  • Maintain good oral hygiene habits, including brushing and flossing regularly, to ensure the longevity of the crown.
