A dental crown is a synthetic cover cemented over the existing tooth used to correct damaged or unsightly teeth and blend in with surrounding natural teeth.
For many years porcelain and porcelain fused to gold has been the industry standard material, however these have been prone to chipping and can develop a dull appearance.
Linden House now offers the very latest all ceramic ZIRCONIA crowns.
The defining feature of these new crowns is they are made from a translucent material which is attractive to look at and matches in well with the rest of your teeth. Zirconia crowns are produced using computer technology; a CAD/CAM 3D DESIGN and are milled from solid crystal making them almost INDESTRUCTIBLE.
Advantages of Zirconia crowns
- extraordinarily tough
- can withstand endless wear and tear
- translucent enough to be similar to natural teeth
- requires less tooth removal
- no metal to fuse
- modifiable size, shape and colour
