Zirconium is one of the oldest and most common elements in the terrestrial crust and it is the basis for Zirconium oxid (yttrium stabilized Zirconium dioxide).
Zirconium is a very strong material able to withstand the wear and tear of every day use. Zirconium crowns can withstand the biting pressure of the front teeth as well as the grinding of the back teeth.
The human body accepts zirconium as a natural material, so you don’t have to worry about allergies or adverse reactions.

Zirconium in cosmetic dentistry
Zirconium-oxide crowns are the best choice for a natural cosmetic look. Zirconia is a white powdered material, which serves as a framework for crowns and bridges. It serves as a replacement for gold and metal with the aim of creating a more translucent tooth.
Zirconium crowns allow light to pass through it as with a normal tooth giving a natural look.
In cosmetic dentistry Zirconia has been used for many years in order to achieve the most aesthetic result and it is the best material for bridges.
