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 California 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
