Evolution of Zirconia Crowns in a Perth Dental Laboratory
Over years replacing and restoration of teeth has become a trend due to different reasons especially health reasons. PMC Perth dental lab remains one of the leading and most advanced labs in Australia and is mainly spearheaded by their aim to provide high standards when it comes to the manufacturing and design of custom-designed crowns.
For a long period of time our labs used either gold or porcelain fused to metal crowns but with the set of problems that came up, as a result, they had to shift to the manufacture of crowns using zirconia crowns. Despite gold crowns being sturdy and malleable enough to be designed into a specific crown to fit the teeth, some individuals found it aesthetically unpleasing. Porcelain crowns, on the other hand, were quite appealing for either anterior or posterior teeth but caused teeth to wear and also showed metal at the edge of the crown thus also ruling them out.
However, zirconia discs have proven to be the best for crowns due to their good quality and less of their shortcomings. Despite being monolithic, they have proven to be more durable than other crowns. More effort is being put in making the crowns to be more translucent in order to make them look more natural. Being an all-ceramic crown, it is worn to improve the appearance of teeth and majorly to hide damaged or stained teeth.
Our dental lab manufactures zirconia crowns which are milled from very strong blocks of materials baked at extreme temperatures and which result in crowns that are both sturdy and hard to break. Continued research has proven crowns made of zirconia to be undoubtedly the best method of teeth restoration possible. Zirconia crowns being compatible with the human body also makes it a plus since it rules out possible allergies or adverse reactions.
With the endless list of the advantages of Zirconia crown, it can be deemed as the best compared to crowns made from other materials.
