Zerconia Crowns

Crowns, aka caps, are false teeth that surround a damaged natural tooth. They restore the tooth’s function and appearance and help maintain proper spacing and occlusion (bite). Besides restoring teeth damaged by decay or injury, crowns can address other dental concerns: they anchor a dental bridge, serve as a dental implant cap, and mask stained teeth that don’t respond to whitening.
Crowns decrease the potential of the tooth fracturing due to brittleness or decay and seal against invading bacteria.

Zirconia crowns

Zirconia crowns are silica-free porcelain that offer enhanced aesthetics and incredible durability. They are so durable that they can withstand the harsh environment of the back teeth with no problem.


A crown installation is a two-step process as well. The first appointment involves reshaping the tooth, making a model of it and sealing it with a temporary cap. On the second appointment, the permanent crown is placed on the tooth, adhered and fine-tuned to fit the bite. The result is a look and feel close to that of a real tooth.


As with inlays and overlays, the crown procedure yields minor to no discomfort. And with regular dental checkups and committed oral hygiene, a dental crown can last a lifetime.
