If you are planning to get a dental treatment soon and have question marks in your mind about which one should you prefer, then keep reading! We have shared every single detail you may want to know about this treatment and much more!

Besides the process itself, we have answered all commonly asked questions such as how long the process takes, how much it cost, what are the durations, and so on.

What are
Zirconium Crowns?

Zirconium crowns are known as zirconia in dentistry. Zirconium is a white hard metal element, which is ideal for filling the gaps in teeth. It offers numerous advantages to patients thanks to being a bio-compatible restorative material.
It does not trigger any allergies or reactions in the body and thanks to its quite high fracture resistance, you can use it for many years without any worry. In addition to this, it is a great alternative for patients who show allergic reactions to metals used in dentistry such as titanium and nickel.

Besides they are quite advantageous in terms of dental crown costs. Moreover, they can be used in a wide range of areas such as posterior or anterior restorations.

Why Is Zirconium Used in Dental Treatment?

Many factors can lead to damage, break, or wear down of our teeth. Besides, aging, injuries, and tooth decay can also lead to severe tooth damage. Additionally, problems such as chewing hard objects, crossbiting, or grinding your teeth can also cause your teeth to lose their form and reduce in size.

As a result, such damages, break, or wear down should be treated as soon as possible before they lead to severe problems. We have been using porcelain tooth crowns for many years for treatment purposes.

However, a revolution took place in dental treatment after the discovery of mixing zirconium with several materials to obtain zirconia dioxide. Thanks to this new material, patients can enjoy affordable tooth crown costs.

In addition to this, they can fix many oral problems such as capping misshapen or discolored teeth, covering root canals, dental implants, and large fillings, improving the bite of patients, and restoring a worn-down or broken tooth.
Zirconium crown can also contribute to improving the smile of the patients while maintaining the shape of the tooth and preventing fractures.

Zirconium crowns are as durable as porcelain tooth crown and offer one of the most affordable dental crown prices among other alternatives.

What Are the Advantages of Zirconium Crowns?

Zirconium crowns are preferred by an increasing number of patients every year. Besides offering one of the most affordable tooth crown costs, they are regarded as the best dental crown you can prefer these years. However, their advantages are not limited to these.
Strength is one of the main advantages of zirconium crowns. Of course, strength also comes with durability. Zirconium crowns are ideal choices, especially for the molar tooth. In addition to this, these crowns offer the highest longevity among all dental crowns.
Of course, and as we mentioned before, their biocompatibility is another important advantage. This eliminates the risks of immunological responses such as inflammation or other kinds of reactions.

These crowns are also preferred because they can be implemented on the same day! Many clinics can make their own crowns without the need for sending the impression of your tooth to labs. Unlike porcelain tooth crowns, you can receive a complete treatment in a single visit.

The process involves CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) technology to speed up manufacturing. This eliminates the need for a second visit to dentists.

    How Are Zirconium Crowns Used in Smile Design?

    Zirconium crowns are not only used for health purposes but also for aesthetic purposes too. In fact, these dental crowns are an important part of Hollywood smile treatments. Sometimes, teeth whitening processes cannot provide the desired results, depending on the condition of the patient.

    Besides, these dental crowns are not like porcelain crowns. They can be preferred as an orthodontic treatment to eliminate all kinds of deformities and disproportion in the teeth.

    Because of all these reasons, zirconium is one of the most commonly preferred materials in smile design. Thanks to this miracle invention in dentistry, everyone can enjoy the perfect smile they always dreamed of.

    If you have worn down, chipped, misshapen or discolored teeth or tooth decay, you can prefer zirconium as your dental crown. The tooth crown costs will be much more affordable when you prefer this material as the main substance of your treatment.

    On the other hand, if you are going to receive treatment abroad as a part of healthcare tourism, one trip with a maximum of five-day stay will be enough. The preparation time of the process often takes something between 30 minutes and 2 hours.

    Depending on the equipment available in the clinic, your zirconium crowns can be prepared on the same day and customized for your teeth. Once they are ready, they can be placed in the treatment area for between 30 minutes and 2 hours.

From the experience of the dentists to the quality of the clinic, the location of your treatment to your current condition, many things will be affecting your dental crown cost. Besides the advantages in terms of cost, they are advantageous in terms of durability and health.

    As of today, the average zirconium crown treatment costs vary between Pound 1,000 and 2,500 each crown in the United Kingdom. This is a bit cheaper in many European countries. However, Turkey, which is the leading country in healthcare tourism offers the best pricing! Due to the devaluation of the Turkish Lira in recent years, you can enjoy affordable tooth crown costs including your trip costs compared to any treatment in leading European countries. You can contact our patient representatives to get more information about the costs depending on your unique condition and expectation.

    On the other hand, the warranty coverage varies from clinic to clinic. There are no standards in warranty coverage for any dental crowns including porcelain crowns and zirconium crowns. However, most clinics will offer warranty coverage for a limited time.

    Is It Common for the Zirconium Crowns to Break or Fall Off?

    Since we use our teeth more than we actually believe we do, zirconium crowns may also break or fall off just like other dental crowns. However, this happens rarely. If this may happen to you, do not panic, and never try to repair the damage by yourself. The best thing you can do is contact a dentist as soon as possible and let a professional evaluate your condition. The good thing about zirconium crowns is they can be repaired. This is not an option in other dental crowns.

    We recommend not neglecting such problems. Although they may seem like minor problems, if left untreated, they can lead to severe damage to your oral health.
