Zirconia crown is a tooth and gum friendly material that provides better results technologically and visually in dental treatments applied in recent years. In recent years, zirconium teeth is preferred in prostheses and porcelain infrastructure due to its white colour, transparent and light transmission properties. As Adalya Dental Clinic, we frequently apply zirconia crowns in Turkey. We can make zirconia crown, which we frequently use as the infrastructure of dental implants at a very affordable price in Turkey compared to Europe and UK.
Zirconium crown is a substructure material that is compatible with the tissues, does not cause discoloration on the gums, and allows the tooth’s aesthetic appearance to be more easily achieved.
What Is Zirconia Crown?
Zirconium; is a substructure material that does not have metal support, has a white colour and light transmittance, and can provide a high-level aesthetic appearance. In recent years, zirconium-supported porcelains have started to be used more as an alternative to metal-supported porcelains.
That is because; Zirconium’s white colour is due to its ability to provide the closest appearance to the natural tooth aesthetically and be more compatible with the body’s tissues. It is a treatment applied by abrading all around the teeth. This erosion may increase or decrease depending on the condition of the tooth to be plated. Zirconia crown can be applied to the front teeth, but it is more frequently applied to the posterior teeth.
Why Is Zirconia Crown Preferred , And What Are Its Advantages?
- Zirconium does not cause gingival discoloration in areas where the coating meets the gum due to the absence of metal.
- Zirconia crown is a material with high biological compatibility to the body. Zirconium can be used in the mouth for many years in a very harmonious manner with tissues such as the area where it joins with the gums, cheeks, lips, and tongue.
- Zirconium teeth are more robust than other metal-free crowns. It is a material with very high fracture resistance. As aesthetic features come to the fore, some compromises are made regarding the durability of the materials used. However, zirconium teeth provide significant advantages with their durability in chewing pressures and cross forces, especially in clenching and grinding cases.
Zirconium tooth is semi-transparent and can pass light.
- In zirconium crowns, less abrasion can be made from teeth than metal-supported porcelains. That is because; there is no metal in the sub-structure of zirconium coating. In this way, teeth can be prepared with less abrasion by saving metal thickness.
- In veneer teeth, it is desired that the tooth appears to come out naturally from the gum. Since zirconium veneers’ edges are thinner, porcelain transition is provided very quickly without disturbing the gum.
- Since zirconium teeth are produced in a computer environment with Cad-Cam technology, they are applied to the cut tooth without error. Since the space between the crown and the tooth is well closed, the risk of decay of the zirconium crowned tooth is eliminated.
- Allergic reactions are never seen in zirconium-based teeth.
Extremely aesthetic results can be obtained with metal-supported porcelain. Only metal-supported porcelains are metal-coloured, and their edges are 0.2 mm thicker than zirconium. For this reason, zirconium veneers can be preferred more in implant applications or aesthetic works to be performed on the anterior regions.
How Is Zirconia Crowns Made in Turkey?

If there are caries in the teeth and there are inflammations in the teeth’s roots, these problems should be treated first.
In the first session of zirconium dental treatment, the colour, the number of teeth, and form are determined by analyzing the patient’s expectations with photo shoots to capture the correct, natural teeth and smile. Zirconium substructure and upper porcelains are prepared by technicians in the laboratory environment with computer-aided programs in determining sizes, colours, and forms.
When the treatment phase is started, the teeth are cut worldwide for zirconium infrastructure under local anesthesia and reduced to the desired dimensions. After the teeth are reduced, patients spend this time with their temporary teeth, which are the same size as real zirconium teeth, for a few days until the treatment is completed. After a few sessions of rehearsals, zirconium veneered teeth prepared by taking the ideas of the patients are glued together with the last session, and the treatment is completed, and aesthetic, and natural-looking teeth are achieved.
