Your Austin, TX biological dentist chooses zirconium for the most lifelike dental crown

Repair Teeth with dental bridge from Austin dentist

One of the many reasons that holistic dentistry is appealing is the consideration of the materials used in treatments. When a tooth requires repair beyond a filling, Austin, TX dentist Dr. Griffin Cole may recommend a zirconium dental crown.
Zirconium oxide is an excellent choice for dental restorations due to its strength and appearance. A zirconium dental crown offers a number of advantages, including:

  • The durability of zirconium can withstand bite force in all areas of the mouth. Whether on a posterior tooth or one of your front teeth, your zirconium crown should not crack or fracture.
  • A zirconium base with a porcelain overlay will retain natural translucency that delivers a lifelike appearance. The standard porcelain-fused-to-metal crown may look like a real tooth from a distance. This restoration, however, does not allow light to pass through.
  • Due to the low thermal conductivity of zirconium, sensations of hot and cold are not disrupted.
  • Attention to detail and quality craftsmanship in the dental lab leads to a precision fit and long lasting restoration.

Careful materials selection

Zirconium-based crowns with a porcelain overlay are an excellent choice for many patients needing restoration. Our patients undergo materials testing to identify those that are most biocompatible with their chemistry and those that are not. The value of dental care lies in the ability of any restoration to carry out its intended purpose without affecting general health. Zirconium is one example of this.
Collaboration is at the heart of treatments in our Austin dental practice. When you visit Dr. Cole, you become a partner in your oral health and wellness. Our goal is to help you keep your natural teeth through treatments best suited to your immediate and long term needs. If it becomes necessary to repair a tooth with a dental crown, all of your options will be presented in a way that enables you to make the most educated decision about your care.
Your oral health is an important component of your general sense of wellness. For preventive or restorative care designed around your needs, call (512) 472-3565.
