Some patients with damaged teeth assume that they have to replace those teeth entirely, but this is not always the case. In many instances, teeth can largely be salvaged by installing all-white dental crowns instead. Dental crowns are prosthetic caps placed on top of damaged teeth or roots that can restore a near-natural level of function. These can also be the final step in a number of operations like root canals or during the installation of dental implants, but they are often used in cosmetic procedures as well. There are several different options for dental crown materials, each with their own set of pros and cons; however, many patients opt for zirconia or all-porcelain crowns as they do not contain metal and they preserve the all-white, natural look of the patient’s original teeth.
Patients who prefer a non-metal type of white dental crown are increasingly interested in zirconia crowns as well as porcelain. For many, these may have some distinct advantages over metal crowns. The above-mentioned natural look is a good start, but these types of crowns can also be great for individuals who are allergic to metals, like titanium. Zirconia, a ceramic when used for dental purposes, has become a popular choice in recent years due to its resistance to breaking or chipping in addition to providing the natural function of the original tooth.
