What is Zirconia Crowns?

Zirconia crowns are a type of dental crown made from zirconium dioxide, a highly durable and biocompatible material. These crowns are used to restore teeth that are damaged, decayed, or have undergone root canal treatment. Unlike traditional crowns made from metal or porcelain-fused-to-metal, zirconia crowns offer a more natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance. They are known for their strength, resistance to chipping, and long-lasting nature. At Rocky Hills Dentistry in Rocky Hill, New Jersey, Dr. Bhumika Patel provides zirconia crowns to patients seeking a reliable and attractive solution for their dental restoration needs.

How Rocky Hill Family Dentistry can help

Opting for zirconia crowns at Rocky Hills Dentistry comes with numerous benefits that enhance both the function and appearance of your teeth. Here are some key advantages:

Durability and Strength: Zirconia crowns are exceptionally strong and durable, making them ideal for restoring teeth that endure significant pressure, such as molars. Their resilience ensures that they can withstand the forces of chewing and biting without fracturing, providing a long-lasting solution.

Aesthetic Appeal: One of the most significant benefits of zirconia crowns is their natural appearance. The material closely mimics the translucency and color of natural teeth, ensuring that the crown blends seamlessly with your existing teeth. This makes zirconia crowns an excellent choice for front teeth restorations where aesthetics are crucial.

Biocompatibility: Zirconia is highly biocompatible, meaning it is well-tolerated by the body and unlikely to cause allergic reactions. This is particularly important for patients with metal sensitivities or allergies. The biocompatibility of zirconia crowns also promotes healthy gum tissue around the crown, reducing the risk of inflammation and other complications.

Minimal Tooth Reduction: Compared to other types of crowns, zirconia crowns often require less removal of the natural tooth structure. This conservative approach preserves more of your original tooth, which is beneficial for maintaining overall tooth health and strength.

Resistance to Wear: Zirconia crowns are highly resistant to wear and tear, ensuring they maintain their shape and functionality over time. This resistance extends their lifespan, reducing the need for frequent replacements or repairs.

Stain Resistance: The non-porous nature of zirconia makes these crowns resistant to staining from coffee, tea, wine, and other foods and beverages. This helps maintain the crown's aesthetic appeal over time, keeping your smile bright and attractive.

Customizable Fit and Color: Zirconia crowns can be precisely tailored to match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth. Dr. Bhumika Patel ensures that each crown is customized to provide the best possible fit and appearance, enhancing both comfort and aesthetics.

Improved Oral Health: By protecting and restoring damaged teeth, zirconia crowns help improve overall oral health. They prevent further decay and damage, support the structural integrity of the tooth, and contribute to a healthy bite and proper alignment.

Choosing zirconia crowns at Rocky Hills Dentistry ensures you receive a restoration that combines durability, functionality, and aesthetic excellence. Dr. Bhumika Patel's expertise and personalized care make the experience seamless and effective, providing you with a beautiful and long-lasting solution for your dental needs.
