Dental crowns can be made of several different materials. Zirconia crowns are a type of ceramic crown that are extremely durable and natural-looking. They are designed to last many years and resist stains, and are naturally translucent just like your own teeth, which means that they can be hard for others to see. Dr. Mondavi, our Torrance Zirconia crowns expert, can help you decide if Zirconia crowns are right for you.
Zirconia is compatible with human tissues, and has been used in medical applications such as artificial joints for many years. The body will not reject it or have an allergic reaction, and it is safe to use even in those who have sensitivities to metal or other types of crowns. Dr. Mondavi, our expert in Zirconia crowns in Torrance, can use crowns made of this material in the same way that we would use any other type of crowns, including to:
• Protect damaged teeth
• Strengthen teeth with large cavities
• Restore teeth that have had root canal therapy
• Cover misshapen or badly discolored teeth
• Replace lost teeth
Zirconia Crowns Torrance
There are many advantages of using a Zirconia crown. Zirconia crowns are stronger than other, and have an attractive translucent finish and color that blends seamlessly with your other teeth, more naturally than other types of crowns. The crystal nature of the Zirconia material also allows for a more conservative restoration, so we can preserve more of the existing tooth structure. This is particularly beneficial for those who may need to have their crown replaced later. Dr. Mondavi, our Torrance Zirconia crowns expert, places a Zirconia crown in the same way conventional dental crowns are placed.
Although a Zirconia crown will not decay, you do need to brush and floss to protect your teeth. Brush the restored tooth just like you brush your other teeth, and pay particular attention to the border between the tooth and the crown. Visit us periodically for cleanings and checkups.
