One of the most important advances in dentistry over the last few years has been the introduction of zirconia for crowns and implants.
A computerised image or a plaster mould is used to make a zirconia crown. Computer aided manufacturing has made this procedure speedier and more precise and has lead to better-than-ever results.
One of zirconia’s many advantages is that it is a tough material. At the same time, it is ultra-biocompatible and hypoallergenic allowing the best possible osseointegration and without the risk of metal allergies that metal implants can produce.

Another important advantage that zirconia offers is aesthetics; being a white, translucent material, it provides a lighter, more natural appearance. Furthermore, as there is no metal structure beneath the ceramics, the typical grey line that appears over time with metal implants (when gum recession occurs) is avoided.
