What exactly is Zirconium?
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.

My name is Declan Daly from Ireland, I heard about Tourmedical from my cousin who had been for treatment plus some friends. I had suffered with my teeth most of my life and it was effecting my confidence. In my job your smile is important, so was time to get myself sorted.
The treatment was fantastic, the dentist was very professional and made me feel at ease from the beginning, she is briallant at her job (and strong)!!
The clinic is spotlessy clean and has superb facilities. The atmosphere is relaxing and everyone is always smiling.
It was really a great job, second to none, I already have and will be telling everyone about it.
Firstly I have to say I am a very nervous patient and really scared of the dentist, but am proud to say I have come out the other side. Ive completed my treatment now and have to say found the whole procedure as comfortable as possible. From my first point of contact with Toumedical – I was made to feel at ease and guided the whole way. The clinic and technology they have is amazing, I have never been in a place so clean and hygienic. The Cosmetic Dentist is so caring and nice. In my job, your appearance is everything, so I had to be sure I was going to have a perfect smile & the best result. I felt confident from the beginning from our consultation conversation, that the dentist knew what she was doing & I was going to have the Hollywood smile I dreamed of and here I am smiling now to show the world.
Im Mark O’reilly from Dublin, ive just completed my treatment with Tourmedical and am over the moon with the results. The whole procedure was perfect from start to finish, they made everything as easy as possible.I will definitely recommend them and now I am smiling and feel confident, which is something I haven’t felt in a long time.
