We have no doubts, we don’t even think about them, we always opt for zirconium crowns.
Why? So simple, zirconium is a relatively new material that gives us in the crowns a greater strength than metal-ceramic but at the same time are also lighter.
- Zirconium is a material that is totally compatible with the human organism and will not provoke any type of allergy as it can happen with metal-ceramics.
- The homogeneous colour and the absence of metal make them more durable in the mouth, as although with the passage of time a little gingival recession occurs, this darkened area that used to remain between the gum and the tooth will never be noticed.
- The ceramic metal crown s are opaque in the mouth because the metal does not let pass the light, unlike zirconium which is translucent and is infinitely more aesthetic, in fact is the closest thing to a natural tooth.
- Zirconium crowns also have a low thermal conductivity (because they are free of metal parts), so there are no strange sensations when eating or drinking cold or hot.
The only disadvantage we find in this product is that the price is a little higher. It must be borne in mind that the material used to manufacture these crowns is more expensive, the production technology is more complex and the production is carried out in specific laboratories and with highly qualified prosthetists.
Although it is a product with a slightly higher cost, it is worth investing in because in health, we must not skimp on it.
