Zirconia dental crowns combine the strength of metal and the aesthetics of porcelain. Zirconia is about five times stronger than porcelain and is the preferred choice for restoring the back teeth and for patients with teeth grinding.
The preparation process for a zirconia crown requires two sessions. During the first session, the dentist will initially take X-rays to rule out any infection of the person’s teeth and jaw areas.
The dentist will then apply local anesthesia and proceed to reshaping the tooth that accepts the crown. The dentist creates a cast of the teeth that will receive the crown and sends the cast to a lab specializing in zirconia crowns. While waiting for the zirconia crown, the patient will be provided with an interim temporary crown to cover the site.
At the lab, the ceramist will upload the scan into a computer with CAD software that designs the zirconia crown. Once the permanent zirconia crown has been fabricated, your dentist will replace the temporary crown with the permanent one in the following appointment.
Dental bridges are indicated when you have one or more missing teeth. A typical 3-unit bridge consists of three crowns joined together, which is used to replace a single missing tooth.
Porcelain crowns and bridges can last between 10 and 15 years, on average. The lifespan can vary depending on several factors, including:

Dental crown treatments carried out at the clinic are presented with a 5-year warranty. In the event of fractures of porcelain, repairs or replacements would be at no additional cost*.
