Full Zirconium Crowns

The Full Zirconium Crowns

Full zirconium crowns are one of the top restorative solutions in dentistry in terms of aesthetics and durability. Zirconium is a biocompatible and metal-free material and is very successful in imitating the natural appearance of teeth. Full zirconium crowns can be used on both front and back teeth and are preferred to correct various dental problems. Here is detailed information about full zirconium crowns:


Zirconium dioxide, commonly called zirconia, is a white, translucent material with exceptional strength and durability. It is known for its biocompatibility, meaning it is well tolerated by the body and does not cause side effects or allergies. Zirconia crowns have become increasingly popular in dentistry due to their excellent mechanical properties and natural-looking aesthetics.

Usage Areas of Full Zirconium Crowns


  • Broken or Cracked Teeth: Repairing and protecting broken or cracked teeth.

  • Replacement of Large Fillings: Covering parts of decayed or damaged teeth that require large fillings.

  • Improving Dental Aesthetics: Aesthetic correction of discolored or deformed teeth.

  • Dental Implants: Use as the superstructure of implants.

  • Bridge Structures: Use in bridge structures to replace missing teeth.


Advantages of Full Zirconium Crowns


  • Aesthetic Appearance: Zirconium provides an aesthetic that is very similar to natural tooth enamel and offers a natural appearance thanks to its opaque structure.

  • Durability: Zirconium is a very durable material and is resistant to wear, breakage or cracking.

  • Biocompatibility: Zirconium is perfectly compatible with the body and the risk of allergic reactions is low.

  • Gum Compatible: Since it is compatible with the gums, it does not cause gum irritation and reduces the risk of gum recession.

  • Does not contain metal: Since it does not contain metal, it can be used safely in people with metal allergies and offers a more aesthetic appearance than metal-supported crowns.

  • Color Constancy: Zirconium does not change color over time and remains white and bright for a long time.


Care of Full Zirconium Crowns


  • Good Oral Hygiene: For the longevity of zirconium crowns, it is important to brush your teeth regularly and floss.

  • Regular Dentist Checkups: Having regular checkups with your dentist helps protect your crown and overall oral health.

  • Avoiding Hard Foods: It is important to avoid biting into hard foods to avoid damage to the crown.

Full zirconium crowns are an effective way to improve your teeth both aesthetically and functionally. Your dentist will determine the most suitable treatment plan for you, ensuring that you make the most of the advantages of zirconium crowns.


The process of creating and placing a complete zirconia crown typically includes the following steps:


1. Preparation of teeth: The relevant tooth is prepared by removing the decayed or damaged parts and reshaping it to fit the crown.

2. Impression: An impression or digital scan is taken from the prepared tooth, which will serve as a guide for the design of the zirconium crown in the dental laboratory.

3. Crown fabrication: Experienced dental technicians in a dental laboratory use impressions or digital scanning to design and fabricate a zirconia crown. Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology can be used to ensure a perfect fit and optimum aesthetics.

4. Temporary crown: While making a zirconium crown, a temporary crown can be placed on the prepared tooth to protect it and maintain its functionality.

5. Crown placement: When the zirconium crown is ready, its fit, shape and color are tested. Necessary corrections can be made before permanent placement. The tooth is cleaned and the zirconia crown is permanently bonded to the tooth using dental filling material or adhesive agent.


Here's Frequently Asked Questions About Full Zirconium Crown

What is a full zirconium crown?

A full zirconium crown is a type of dental crown made entirely from zirconium dioxide, a strong and durable ceramic material. These crowns are known for their strength, durability, and natural appearance, making them an excellent choice for restoring damaged or decayed teeth.

What are the advantages of full zirconium crowns?

Advantages include exceptional strength and durability, resistance to chipping and cracking, a natural tooth-like appearance, biocompatibility (minimizing the risk of allergic reactions), and reduced wear on opposing teeth compared to metal crowns.

Will I feel pain during the full zirconium crown procedure?

The procedure for placing a full zirconium crown is generally painless. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area during tooth preparation. Some patients may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity after the procedure, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.

How long does the full zirconium crown procedure take?

The procedure typically requires two visits. During the first visit, the dentist prepares the tooth and takes impressions. In the second visit, the custom-made crown is bonded to the tooth. Each visit usually lasts about 1-2 hours.

How long do full zirconium crowns last?

With proper care, full zirconium crowns can last 10-15 years or more. Maintaining good oral hygiene, regular dental check-ups, and avoiding habits that could damage the crown will help ensure its longevity.

What should I do after the full zirconium crown procedure?

After the procedure, maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly. Avoid chewing on hard objects and be mindful of habits that could damage the crown. Follow any specific aftercare instructions provided by your dentist.

Do full zirconium crowns provide natural-looking results?

Yes, full zirconium crowns are designed to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, providing a seamless and natural-looking smile. The material mimics the translucency and luster of natural tooth enamel.

How are full zirconium crowns different from other types of crowns?

Full zirconium crowns are made entirely of zirconium dioxide, offering superior strength and durability compared to porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns or all-ceramic crowns. They are ideal for areas of the mouth that require strong biting forces, such as molars.

Who is a good candidate for full zirconium crowns?

Good candidates for full zirconium crowns are individuals with damaged or decayed teeth that require restoration. They are especially suitable for patients seeking a strong, durable, and natural-looking option for restoring molars or other teeth subjected to heavy chewing forces.

What is the cost of full zirconium crowns?
