Zirconia Crown

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.

There is also the advantage of avoiding unsightly metal finish lines or black gum lines that are can be visible when using some porcelain fused metal crown designs. Zirconia dental crowns and bridges can also be used in cases where minimal preparation is required as the material can be finished as thin as 0.3mm in parts.

Although these dental restorations are very popular, some clinicians still prefer other options like good old fashioned gold crowns, PFMS, or emax. There are longer studies on these other types of restorations and they are easy to adjust intraorally.. Still, we here at Pindan Dental Laboratory emphasize the long list of benefits that come with zirconia tooth crowns and use the best materials and equipment to fabricate the products that will truly provide those advantages for the patient.

From our experience, zirconia dental implants proved to be extraordinarily tough and resistant to wear and tear. They bond well with the tooth and require less tooth removal in comparison to other alternatives. It helps create a natural and superior look, thus giving your patients beautiful smiles that will grow their confidence.
