Crowns That Will go the Distance

Recent advances in dental technology have produced  solid Zirconia as a material for casting crowns which have proved to have the lowest fracture rate of any other restoration, making it nearly equivalent to the strength of a solid cast gold crown.  Why do dentists look for strength as the most important characteristic in choosing materials for crowns?  The durability of a crown saves both the dentist and patient time and money. This is especially true for patients who grind or brux, and can sometimes destroy their own dental work.

In addition, Zirconia tends to blend extremely well with the tooth structure and soft tissue better than most materials, giving the patient a better fit and a more natural looking outcome.  Translucency, incredible strength, and fabulous esthetics ensure that only you and your dentist will know for sure which tooth has been crowned.  If you would like to discuss this research with Dr. Gladnick, please feel free to call our office at 302.994.2660.
