Prosthetics is a technology that has been used in dentistry for many years to restore teeth that have been damaged or lost for various reasons. To recreate the beauty and functions of the tooth, different types of prosthetic and orthopedic structures are used, which can be made from a variety of materials. One of the newest options is Zirconium Crowns in Dubai.
What Are Zirconia Crowns?
These prostheses are orthopedic structures made from a unique material called zirconia. The material is obtained from the mineral, which has a bright white colour and is very durable. For prosthetics, pure material is not used; it always contains additive materials. Due to the natural properties of the base material and additives, dental zirconium acquires high strength, hypoallergenic, and biologically compatible characteristics.
They provide an entirely natural look due to light transmittance. The prosthetics appear pretty lively and prevent plaque formation on the teeth due to smooth and shiny surfaces.
Like any other prosthetics, these have some advantages and some disadvantages. Following are some of the advantages:
Lightweight: Due to this quality, the finished crown is lightweight and ideal for restorations on implants.
Aesthetics: Incredible aesthetics allow a single restoration with a zirconia crown in the previous area.
Minimal damage: Optional removal of spare teeth. The installation does not require removing a significant enamel layer from the abutment.
Tight fit: The placement of crowns and oral gills eliminates gingival retraction, root exposure, and oral soft tissue swelling.
Durability: Zirconium crowns have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years.
The best candidate for treatment is someone having the following conditions:
- Teeth destroyed as a result of trauma
- Allergies to metal and their alloys
- Chronic disease
- Want to avoid de-palpation
- Do not have bruxism or bite defects
Stages of Installation:
The installation is carried out in several stages:
The doctor will begin by examining the patient and making a diagnosis, which will eliminate possible contraindications to the use of prostheses from this substance. Prosthetic plan designed with accurate price Zirconia Crowns in Dubai.
Preparations include the treatment of caries and other dental diseases identified during the examination and oral hygiene.
The tooth is prepared for a zirconium crown. This procedure can be unpleasant for the patient, so local anesthesia is performed first.
Tooth enamel is polished to the desired thickness. The doctor takes a cast from the prepared tooth, which is sent to the laboratory, where the prosthesis will be made.
Turned teeth are exposed to external factors and bacteria, so temporary plastic crowns are placed on them.
The next time the patient comes to the clinic to try on the crown. If necessary, depending on the relevant results, the prosthesis is adjusted.
The final stage of prosthetics is the permanent installation of a crown on an enlarged tooth.
The prosthesis is firmly attached to the abutment teeth using a particular adhesive combination. On average, the process of making a zirconium crown takes about an hour; the longest stage of treatment is prosthetics, which takes up to two weeks.
The care of teeth with crowns is similar to the care of regular teeth:
- Using prophylactic or anti-inflammatory toothpaste, brushing your teeth with a medium-hard toothbrush twice a day is mandatory. As additional hygiene products, it is desirable to use toothpicks or flosses.
- It is necessary to rinse the mouth with water or a unique solution to avoid growing the number of pathogenic bacteria.
- Do not eat solid foods like nuts, bones, seeds, etc. you can also forget about the bad habit of biting your nails.
- To undergo preventive examinations and monitor the condition of teeth.
Zirconium or Ceramic: Which is Better?
The demand for zirconium crowns is steadily growing. In many ways, the market growth is due to the high quality and some other characteristics mentioned below:
Attractive appearance: These crowns are almost indistinguishable from natural teeth; up close, they have a colour and transparency as close as possible to natural tooth enamel.
Durability: Zirconium crowns are more robust than ceramic crowns and withstand stable and moderately heavy loads, so they are ideal for restoring any tooth in a row.
Lack of glare: They do not shine through the gum tissue, as is often the case with ceramic-metal prostheses. The beauty of the redevelopment will be incredible.
Light and thin: When installing them, it is not necessary to grind down the enamel on the abutment teeth.
Zirconium dental prostheses have a relatively long useful life, averaging 12-15 years. If you carefully care for your teeth and follow all the recommendations of the orthopedist, the useful life of the crown can be even longer.
Quick Tip: For the crowns to last a long time, they must be made correctly. If they don’t fit perfectly, food debris will clog under them.
The cost of Zirconia Crowns in Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sharjah can range from AED 2,500 to AED 3,500. The price largely depends on the clinic you have applied to and the specialist’s qualifications. The milling and firing procedure during manufacture itself require technical costs, affecting the final price.
Also, the price of zirconium crowns includes temporary plastic crowns that will show off your turned teeth until the permanent ones are made.
