Why Zirconia Crowns are Highly Recommended?

One of the challenges in dental restoration is to restore the functionality of teeth, which is essential to grind and chew food for proper digestion. Over the years so many materials were discovered, tested and applied not just to regain the teeth grinding and chewing ability but also for aesthetic purposes. Several materials with metal properties such as titanium, gold along with ceramics, porcelain and the likes have brought innovation in the field of dentistry.

But up until recent years, Zirconia crowns have gained popularity because of their notable aesthetic factor that mimics the look of natural teeth due to their translucent property. Zirconia materials have proven to have possessed a certain level of durability and strength, albeit it was started being adopted and utilized as dental crowns sometime in the late 90s. It exhibits superiority over its porcelain counterparts mainly because of the comfort it offers that is brought about by its being non-abrasive nature.


Zirconia (zirconium dioxide) is a white, powdered metal oxide. It is made from zirconium, a metal with similar properties to titanium and is mined around the world. It is found in dinnerware and electrical fixtures, among other products. Zirconium makes an ideal choice for dental material, especially dental crowns, because it is chemically unreactive, and its toughness fits most in a posterior area where higher strength is required to masticate food.

Zirconia’s inherent white color and high hardness, high fracture toughness (difficult to crack) properties make an ideal choice for dental crown materials. Some of its beneficial qualities are resistance to wear, resistance to oxidation, no chemical corrosion and its translucent appearance when sintered (baked).



Zirconia crowns have an extremely high flexural and tensile strength. Upon being subjected to rigorous laboratory testing, zirconia crowns yield a higher percentage of bending strength than porcelain. It has an innate capacity to better withstand the normal wear and tear on teeth from grinding and chewing. Thus, restoring the functionality of teeth closest to the original state. 

Because of its natural strength and durability, Zirconia crowns generally last longer than their counterparts. It’s being non-porous in nature makes Zirconia crowns more resistant to chipping, cracking and staining.

The natural white color of zirconium material and its translucent microstructure properties have the ability to match the shade of the original teeth and are optimized by technology and executed by highly skilled technicians in the fabrication process. The final product exhibits elegant, custom-crafted Zirconia crowns, engineered to seamlessly integrate into your smile.

Due to the non-abrasive nature of the material, Zirconia crowns offer a superior level of comfort. The product has a smooth exterior surface, which prevents abrasion to surrounding teeth and gum tissue. Abrasive materials produce frictions in the course of its function that may cause damage to the sorrounding teeth and soft tissues.
