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.

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 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.
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.
