Zirconium also called Zirconia (Cercon) is rapidly becoming the material of choice for dental crowns. It is a very strong material able to withstand the wear and tear of every day use. Aesthetically, it is translucent very similar to a natural tooth, reflecting light in much the same way.

This means that Zirconium, Zirconia has a very aesthetic effect, which may be important if your new crowns are to be at the front of your mouth and is particularly relevant in cases where the crowns will be seen beside natural teeth.
 



 

What  exactly is Zirconium?

In the most simplest terms: Zirconium is obtained mainly from zircon mineral and it is a component that has a hardness similar to copper and is lighter than that of a steel. 

Why choose Zirconia crowns ?

Zirconium/ zirconia is biocompatible, non allergic, non electrical conductive material with  the unique specification of letting light pass through so that the crown appears to be a natural tooth.  Zirconinum/zirconia  also provides the extra comfort that it would not break or chip over a period of time as against a full porcelain crown to which this is occasionally known to happen.

Porcelain is the traditional material used for new crowns. Full porcelain however may chip or break. This is overcome by making the crowns from metal, in this case the metal being zirconia, then fusing porcelain to the outside.

The zirconia metal provides the strength whilst the porcelain provides the outward appearance on a normal tooth. Zirconium crowns allow light to pass through as with a normal tooth giving a natural look, unlike other metal cores which block the light. Some resources are also calling them as Non-Allergic Crowns and say Zirconia is"Biocompatible" because the body does not reject it. Unlike Amalgam Fillings and metal alloys, the human body accepts zirconium, zirconia as a natural material, so you would not need to worry about allergies or adverse reactions.

Zirconium or Zirconia crowns do not corrode and the normal black gum line that you might see around a porcelain fused metal crown, will not occur, because of the strong ceramic material which is used. Also the hot and cold sensations you might feel with other crowns normally do not occur because of the lack of electrical conductivity.

I am so happy with my new smile

Ive just finished the 2nd step of my treatment with Tourmedical,  I was here in 2015 and started my treatment. This year I came back and did some more. I had neglected my teeth really from an early age so over time, am sorting all my problems. I have total confidence in the dentist and her team and am so happy with my new smile.

I am over the moon with my new smile

I had problems with my front teeth from an early age, had immediate work done after an accident but was never happy with my smile. Dreamt of the day when I could afford to have the smile of my dreams. I found Tourmedical on the internet and was impressed with how professional the website was, checked out all the video reviews and felt confident that their Cosmetic Dentist could solve my problem for me.

I made contact with them and was contacted immediately, I sent photos of my smile and they came back to me with a treatment plan that was within my budget. We booked our family holiday for 2 weeks and in the first few days of our holiday, my treatment was carried out, thought id have to wait until after my treatment to start to enjoy my  holiday but it didn’t effect it in any way. I had pain free treatment, in a 5 star clinic and I am over the moon with my new smile.

I can recommend them one million percent

I heard about Tourmedical from my cousin who had treatment there. I contacted them and was very comfortable from the first point of contact. I was always terrified of the dentist but the dentist and her team made me feel totally at ease and were so gentle and patient with me. It was a home away from home in a lovely friendly atmosphere and the clinic was spotless.

I had anticipated a language barrier, but there was none, the dentist had perfect English and understood my humour. They are so professional but friendly, I can recommend them one million percent, their attention to detail is second to none, even their after hour service, their Patient co-ordinator, contacted me to see how everything felt that night, I was blown away by the care and attention. They genuinely care about each and every patient, which really makes the difference.
