Zirconium Dental Restorations offer several innovative systems for aesthetic crowns and bridges without metal.
The reliability of zirconium restorations in the various alternatives developed by European laboratories such as Cercon and Procera is backed by years of proven clinical success. The innovative system based on a zirconia structure is used to manufacture individual units (teeth) anterior or molar, as well as restorations of bridges of multiple units in zirconia.
The advantages of zirconium dental bridges are multiple: We can create dental bridges with translucent appearance similar to natural teeth, allow a high precision in the final result with better adaptation, is bio-compatible, does not suffer the possible fracture failure of Porcelain on metal that is sometimes seen on porcelain bridges over metal, and is the most durable and durable dental ceramic.
Zirconium dental bridges can be placed with conventional cementing or bonding techniques. Millions of units have been placed around the world since its introduction. Our digital design and milling system results in excellent fit and marginal accuracy for restorations such as zirconium dental bridges.
The clinical performance of zirconia molar crowns was superior to all other tooth-colored materials studied by several research studies over the course of a decade. Based on scanning electron microcoscope (SEM), clinical and laboratory examinations performed three-and-a-half years after placement, zirconia crowns and bridges exhibited excellent adaptation to tissues, resistance to stress and wear.
We are specialists in oral rehabilitation, zirconium dental bridges with the latest technology.

Anatomically a tooth can be divided into two greater parts: the root, which is the support part of the tooth and is implanted within the maxillary or mandibular bone, and the crown, the visible part of the tooth.
Under normal conditions, meaning when we find healthy tissues, the root of the tooth is covered by the gums and bone.
Dental crowns as prosthetic devices, are artificially created tooth structures that cover the visible part of a tooth. Dental crowns not only performs the function of a natural tooth, but it to a great extent restores and protects the integrity of damaged teeth. A dental crown treatment may be used to protect a cracked tooth, restore functionality of a tooth with excessive decay or replace a pre-existing crown.
The purpose of dental crown treatment is to reinforce a compromised tooth with a custom-designed form built with a biocompatible material.
Dentists today have a variety of conservative treatment options through which to restore teeth. If possible, these options should be explored and discussed before selecting the full coverage crown.
Dental crowns are built from different materials. Modern dental crowns can be made in porcelain fused to metal (PFM), or entirely of porcelain for better esthetic results. Porcelain is a ceramic mineral material used to mold in conformity to the tooth to be restored, replicating the look of the natural tooth.
Today’s porcelain dental crowns are so strong they can provide the necessary strength and resistance to grinding to guarantee a long lasting dental restoration.
Porcelain dental crowns are used when a tooth has been damaged beyond the possibility of being restored with a conventional filling, after a tooth facture, tooth decay, broken or damaged filling, or extreme tooth wear.
Dental crowns in porcelain can now closely recreate the form and function of a damaged tooth.
Dental crowns covers completely the visible exterior part of the tooth from the gum level to the cusps or more prominent parts.
Dental Crown procedure. Dental crown treatment plan
When do we choose to perform a dental crown treatment?
When the tooth is severely damaged, as in extensive decay, breakage, damaged extensive fillings, etc., that prevent the tooth from being restored with a filling or other conservative treatments, we then discuss with patient the option of doing dental crowns.
In some cases it is necessary to first have root canal treatment done before building the dental crown.
After we make a thorough dental examination and have a diagnosis and a complete view of the needs and specific individual conditions of our patient, we make sure he /she receives a detailed description, and all the possible alternatives for a complete dental treatment plan.
The Dental Crown Clinical Procedure
During the dental crown procedure, we dentists first prepare the tooth under local anesthesia to the specific shape needed, then make a close copy of it and the surrounding tissues by taking an impression of the whole area with a silicon material.
The impression is then sent to a dental laboratory for the dental crown to be created.
In the meantime we construct a customized temporary crown to protect the tooth while the final dental crown restoration is being made.
Once the dental crown is completed, we try it in the tooth to make sure it fits and color is correct, as well as checking biting contacts. When everything is proved to be as desired, the tooth crown is cemented using a dental cement.
Crowns not only replace the original integrity and function of a tooth, but also improve its esthetic appearance.
