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.
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.
Custom zirconia crowns in NYC offer several key advantages that can bring you practical, real-world benefits.
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.
Dr. Condos recommends zirconia crowns for patients who want a long-term and natural-looking solution for tooth replacement or tooth restoration.

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