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 very happy

I heard about Tourmedical from my family, who had treatment with the clinic and were very happy. I was very impressed with the attention to care on all stages of my treatment, from pick up, from the airport, assistance with arranging accommodation and that all my needs were taken care off. The clinic has a very warm atmosphere and is spotlessly clean, so I felt very confident & at ease with the lovely dentist and her team. I not only have my Hollywood smile, but also perfect functionality of my teeth. I would highly recommend the practice, so anyone with travelling in mind, I can re-assure you, don’t hesitate – take the plunge.

I have never experienced such professional dentistry

I heard about Tourmedical through a friend of mine who had been there for treatment and was so happy. I loved his result and made my own enquiry. I have never experienced such professional dentistry. Starting out I was very apprehensive but I was so at ease from the onset and throughout. I was picked up every day for my appointments and taken to the clinic which was spotlessly clean, the dentist was brilliant, talked me through what I would be having and discussed what I wanted from the treatment. I am 100% happy and smiling all the way now.

I just want to say WOW to the clinic itself

Firstly I just want to say WOW to the clinic itself! It is stunning and would honestly put dental clinics to shame here in Ireland. The cleanliness is just outstanding, and put me quite at ease when I arrived first. My cosmetic dentist Elcin was just fantastic and has been perfecting her work for the last 13 years. All of the staff were so lovely and not to mention always had a smile on their faces when I walked in.
