Zirconia has quickly become a trusted and aesthetic material choice for restorations among dentists. It is imperishable and extremely long-lasting, well suited for creating quality zirconia dental implants, like crowns and bridges.
At Pindan Dental Laboratory, we design our zirconia dental implants digitally using 3D scanners and CAD software. The model work is prepared, scanned, and designed by our experienced team of technicians. A block of zirconia is milled in a pre-sintered state, then characterized with internal staining liquids. We then sinter the material to strengthen it up to 1200MPa. External stains and glaze materials are added prior to the crown being dispatched for an insert. Zirconia crowns are typically 4 to 5 times stronger than porcelain fused to metal crowns.
Zirconia crowns are pleasing to the eye and mimic natural tooth characteristics with the help of our experienced dental technicians. Careful consideration needs to be taken to ensure your get a good aesthetic outcome by completing a smile design or diagnostic waxup prior to preparing the restoration.
Zirconia is a biologically safe material to use in your mouth and all studies performed on the material have shown very promising results in regards to longevity. If a well-designed Zirconia crown is looked after and maintained properly, it should be with a patient for 20 plus years.
