F.A.Q on Zirconia Crown
- What are the types of Zirconia Crowns?
There are broadly two types of Zirconia used for dental crowns.; Solid Zirconia and Translucent Zirconia.
Solid Zirconia crown is of higher strength and more opaque and is ideally suited for back teeth as they can withstand heavy chewing forces easily.
Translucent Zirconia crown is more aesthetic and of less strength compared to solid Zirconia. They are best suited for front teeth where the importance is on naturalization and forces of chewing is minimal.
- How do I choose the type of Zirconia Crown?
The choice of crown mainly depends on the tooth i.e., front tooth or back tooth, number of teeth to be replaced in case of bridge, the warranty period and definitely the preferred spend by the patient. As you dentist, we will suggest the best type of crown for you based on the above parameters. It is recommended that your dentist makes the choice and give you some options based on spend preference.

Any crown fitting required two appointments with an interval of 3-5 days depending on the number of teeth. In the first visit, the tooth is shaped and measurement is made for the CAD designing. The measurement is scanned using CAD and the crown is custom made for each tooth separately. In the second visit, the dentist will fit the crown permanently on the tooth.
