Zirconia Crowns: The Ideal Choice for Strong, Natural-Looking Dental Restorations

At Trudentistry of Tigard, it is our mission to provide our patients with the highest level of care and comfort.  It is this commitment to quality that sets us apart. 

So when a dental crown is needed, we only use the highest level of material, zirconia. When a tooth is damaged, decayed, or weakened, a dental crown can help restore its strength, function, and appearance.

At our dental office in Tigard, Oregon, we offer only zirconia crowns, which is a modern and highly effective solution for protecting and preserving your natural teeth. He we will explain what makes zirconia crowns the best choice and we will discuss their benefits, and why they might be the perfect choice for your dental restoration needs.

Zirconia crowns are dental restorations made from zirconium dioxide, which is  a durable and biocompatible ceramic material. They are designed to cap and protect damaged or decayed teeth, providing a strong, natural-looking solution that blends seamlessly with your existing teeth.

Benefits of Zirconia Crowns:

  1. Strength and Durability: Zirconia is an incredibly strong material, making it an excellent choice for dental crowns. It can withstand the daily pressures of biting and chewing, providing long-lasting protection for your natural tooth.
  1. Natural Appearance: Zirconia crowns are designed to mimic the translucency and color of natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and attractive smile. They are virtually indistinguishable from your surrounding teeth, offering a discreet and confident solution.
  1. Biocompatibility: Zirconia is a biocompatible material, meaning it is less likely to cause allergic reactions or irritation in the mouth. This makes it an ideal choice for patients with sensitive teeth or gums.
  1. Preservation of Natural Tooth Structure: Zirconia crowns require less removal of the natural tooth structure compared to other types of crowns. This helps maintain the integrity and health of your natural tooth.
  1. Stain Resistance: Zirconia is resistant to staining and discoloration, ensuring that your crown maintains its pristine appearance over time.

The process of obtaining a zirconia crown begins with a consultation with Dr. Nguyen.  She will assess your tooth to determine if a crown would be beneficial and discuss the restoration options.

Dr. Nguyen will then take an impression of the area with a state-of-the-art 3D scanner in order to get a precise digital impression of the tooth.  The impression will then be electronically sent over to our dental lab where they will craft the zirconia crown. The fabrication of the crown takes approximately 2 weeks.

The tooth itself will need to be prepared to receive the crown.  Dr. Nguyen will carefully remove any decay and then shape the tooth to accommodate the crown placement. You will be fitted with a temporary crown until it has been returned from the dental lab.

Once the zirconia crown is received, your crown will be fitted on.  Dr. Nguyen will check to make sure that the fit is perfect and if necessary, she will make the adjustments. However, with the use of the 3 dimensional scanner, the fit of the crown is very accurate. The crown is then permanently cemented in place.

We know you will be very happy with the long-lasting zirconia crowns that we provide but we welcome any questions you might have about this product and the process.  Here are some of the frequently asked questions that our patients often inquire about.
