Zirconia Crown Placement - A Game Changer in Dental Services

Updated: Apr 18

Maintaining a healthy and bright smile is essential for most people, but sometimes, we may need dental crowns to restore or replace a damaged tooth. Despite previously limited options, advancements in technology have introduced a new and more reliable product: Zirconia crowns. Gone are the days when people had to choose between natural-looking or durable crowns. With Zirconia Crown Placement, patients can have both. To learn more about this treatment, we spoke to our orthodontist, Dr. Ken Uy Tan, who shared some insightful information and advice with us.

Firstly, Dr. Ken (as his patients call him) emphasized that an important advantage of Zirconia crowns over other options was their strength and longevity. "Zirconia is known for its toughness and resistance to wear and tear. Unlike other materials, Zirconia crowns can last up to fifteen years without any significant damage," he stated. This durability ensures that their patients can receive the best value for their money and enjoy a healthy smile for an extended period.

Secondly, for patients who want a more natural-looking crown rather than a metal, Dr. Ken recommended Zirconia Crown Placement as the ideal choice. "Patients can choose from a variety of shades and translucencies to match their natural teeth, making the placement almost identical to their original teeth. The biocompatible material is also gentle on the gums, making it a comfortable option," Dr. Ken explained.

Thirdly, Dr. Ken highlighted that the process of placing Zirconia crowns was not as painful or time-consuming as many people feared. "The procedure can be completed within two visits to the dentist. During the first visit, we will take impressions, create a temporary crown, and prepare the tooth. During the second visit, the temporary crown is removed before we permanently place the Zirconia crown," he explained. "With proper dental hygiene, patients can continue to enjoy using their Zirconia crowns for several years."

Fourthly, he advised on the importance of taking good care of Zirconia crowns and maintaining good dental hygiene. "Patients should continue to observe proper dental health habits, including brushing and flossing their teeth regularly. Maintaining good dental hygiene is essential for the continued welfare of Zirconia crowns."

Lastly, Dr. Ken suggested that Zirconia Crown Placement was superior to other dental crowns because of its ability to withstand the bite force and the overall well-being of our oral hygiene. "I believe Zirconia Crown Placement is the best option for patients who want a durable, affordable, and natural-looking crown that improves their oral health," he concluded.
