Crown of zircon Zirconia crown material is extremely biocompatible. The zirconium crown is usually very well tolerated and has a high light transmission. Properties of zirconium coating In dental aesthetics, metal structures have been used for a long time. These metal structures, however, caused problems because they both damaged the gums and did not give the desired appearance in terms of aesthetics. This problem is permanently solved by the zirconium coating technique, which is one of the most important developments in dental aesthetics. Zirconium is a white alloy used as a substitute for gray metal in porcelain coatings. The most important feature of zirconium alloys is that their translucency is very high, as with our natural teeth. Thanks to this feature, it is used more in front teeth, especially with regard to the aesthetic appearance.
Zirconium coating is a painless process “After the teeth have been resized a bit, they are removed with precise measurement materials and sent to the lab. In the laboratory, the zirconium substructure and then the porcelain are produced in the desired color and dimensions on the model. Finally, the coating adapted to the tooth is permanently adapted to the tooth with special adhesives. The natural tooth is shaved 1-2 mm away from your surface. Zirconium coating has a long life, as long as it is checked regularly. If you want to change it later, the zirconium coatings are cut off and cause no discomfort. It does not cause tissue loss in teeth.
The healing process is short During the coating process of the zirconium teeth, neither pain nor pain is felt. The operation is performed under local anesthesia. Subsequently, a temporary layer of tooth color is applied to prevent sensitivity to heat and cold. Treatment with zirconium plating is completed in about one week in patients without gum problems. In patients with gum problems, the procedure takes a little longer, as gum treatment is required first.
It does not cause gingival recession, it does not produce aesthetically poor appearance, even if gum extraction occurs due to improper brushing. Since it contains no metal, it causes no taste changes in the mouth and causes no odor. Thanks to its smooth and slippery porcelain surface there is no plaque accumulation. Substances such as coffee, tea and cigarettes thus do not affect the tooth color. It is brushed like a natural tooth, floss and mouthwash are used. Like natural teeth, a zirconium coating can break when it touches a hard object or when a reverse force occurs. It is repaired by dentists like natural teeth. The dentist should be checked regularly every 6 months.
