Advantages of Monolithic Zirconia Crowns – Dental Lab Perth
Monolithic Zirconia Crowns
Monolithic Zirconia Crowns are custom milled from a single block of Zirconium crystal. At our Perth Dental Lab, Zirconia crowns are custom made to get perfectly shaped crowns that are nearly indestructible as well as aesthetically natural-looking.
Zirconium crowns are a breakthrough in dentistry prostheses. Apart from its near-indestructibility and natural-looking quality, this crystal is fast becoming one of the most popular materials for dental crowns and bridges. Its biocompatibility is the major reason behind its popularity. The material goes well with the natural bone mass, sits well and undetectable between other natural teeth.
Advantages of Monolithic Zirconia Crowns:
Can withstand wear and tear. Zirconium, a metal classified as a member of the titanium family, known for its extreme durability. Most Zirconia crowns are usually provided with about 5 years of framework warranty. The crowns are made from a single material, no fusion of any other metals, hence, the durability is extremely high.
Natural aesthetic look
This material is translucent enough to look similar to natural teeth. The translucency of this material can be changed to perfectly blend in with the natural teeth. This is especially beneficial in crowns that are cemented in the front area where the prosthetics are visible.
Carved out a single block of Zirconium crystal (hence the name monolithic), these crowns are baked at ultra-high temperatures. As a result, the crowns become extremely tough. Their ability to withstand wear and tear, compared to other materials used in dental prostheses, is unparalleled.
Zirconia is well accepted by the body. It means that the crown prosthetics in your mouth are safe and won’t trigger any sort of adverse or allergic reactions for a long time.
Easy to mill, shape, and colour
The material has become popular for its easy-to-mill characteristic. The shape and colour can be easily changed while production to suit the patient’s requirements. The translucency can be altered in a way to make them look similar to natural teeth.
More robust than porcelain
Porcelain crowns are rather brittle. Crowns made using this material have a tendency to easily chip away or break. Zirconia, on the other hand, is more robust than Porcelain.
Moderate teeth removal
When cementing a Zirconia prosthetic, there is absolutely no need to remove more teeth than required. These crowns are designed and milled before-hand, taking the shape requirements into consideration, in such a way that it eliminates the need to remove excess teeth.
We at Perth Milling Centre make custom-milled monolithic Zirconia crowns that are baked at ultra-high temperatures. This makes these prosthetics nearly indestructible and durable against wear and tear.
The crowns are milled to have the perfect shape and look even better than the tooth that it replaces. The biocompatibility of Zirconia material makes it one of the safest material to use in crowns and bridges.
