Zirconia Crowns NYC

Dental crowns are prosthetic elements that replace or cover your teeth as part of a restorative procedure. If you have a dental implant or dental bridge, then a crown will be used to fill out your smile, keep it functional, and give it a natural esthetic.

Crown materials are varied and can include porcelain and metal, depending on where the crown is placed. More recently, zirconia crowns in NYC have gained in popularity. As we explore the benefits, you’ll quickly see why.

Procedures performed by Dr. Spiro Condos can include long-lasting zirconia crowns. Learn about the advantages, why you would need zirconia crowns in NYC, and schedule your consultation today.

Why Durable Dental Crowns are Important

Consider the wear and tear that natural teeth go through, and then think about how crown materials need to be able to withstand the same kind of environment. Crowns are used to support broken, compromised, weak, and oddly shaped teeth. Crowns can cover a tooth that is discolored or severely worn. Crowns can also be placed on top of an implant to replace a natural tooth that has been extracted.

The material you choose for a crown will determine the look, feel, and durability of your smile following a restoration procedure. A zirconia crown, made with zirconium dioxide, is arguably the most durable of all.

Your crown should be long lasting, it should withstand the pressure of chewing, and it should be highly biocompatible. Zirconia meets all of these requirements and more.

The Benefits of Zirconia Crowns NYC

Custom zirconia crowns in NYC offer several key advantages that can bring you practical, real-world benefits.

  • Zirconia crowns are seriously strong and last much longer than other materials. They are resistant to cracking, chipping, and other forms of damage. Zirconia crowns in NYC can last up to 15 years when properly fitted and well maintained. Depending on your age, you could keep a zirconia crown for your lifetime.
  • Zirconia crowns look natural, especially when compared to ceramic and metal crowns. There’s a slight translucent nature to the look of the crowns, which blends in well with the enamel of surrounding natural teeth. If you want your crown to perfectly integrate with your smile, zirconia is the best choice.
  • If you are having a zirconia crown placed on top of a damaged or worn tooth, you’ll benefit from minimal preparation. You can maintain more of the existing tooth which helps to improve stability and durability. Minimal preparation can also help to keep costs reasonable.

In addition to these three key benefits, zirconia crowns in NYC also respond well to damage and staining. Any minor abrasions on the surface are hidden thanks to the sheen of the zirconia. Staining is rare, especially when you regularly brush and floss. Just like natural teeth, smoking and coffee consumption can increase the risk of staining, but professional in-clinic cleaning can help to keep your crowns and natural teeth looking their best.

Who Should Get Zirconia Crowns NYC?

Dr. Condos recommends zirconia crowns for patients who want a long-term and natural-looking solution for tooth replacement or tooth restoration.

You should consider zirconia crowns in NYC if:

  • You need to cover and protect a tooth that has been weakened by decay.
  • You have a cracked tooth that needs repair and stabilization.
  • You have a broken tooth that needs to be repaired.
  • You have a tooth that has been worn down by age or grinding (bruxism).
  • You need a filling to save a tooth, but there will be minimal natural surface remaining. A crown can form the protective layer that keeps the tooth healthy.
  • You have had a root canal and the tooth needs to be stabilized and protected.
  • You have had a dental implant and are looking for a long-term artificial replacement.
  • You are having a dental bridge procedure performed.
  • You have a misshapen or damaged tooth (or several teeth) that you want to improve and protect.

In any scenario where traditional ceramic or metal crowns can be used, zirconia crowns can be used instead.

Are There Disadvantages to Zirconia Crowns?

Due to their durability and strength, zirconia crowns don’t have any functional disadvantages when compared to traditional crowns. However, zirconia crowns in NYC do not cost more than ceramic or metal crowns. Ultimately, you’ll have a more durable solution, so most patients consider this to be a valuable investment.
