Bad Breath Treatment in Antalya Turkey

Zirconium crown material is superior to metal-supported porcelain coating in terms of biocompatibility, durability, and natural appearance. There are several coating options that can be used in porcelain dental veneer treatments. One of these options is recommended to our patients by experienced dentists, taking into consideration the patient's needs, the position of the teeth, and the reason for getting the dental crown. For example, for someone who wants a Hollywood smile or is not satisfied with the appearance of their front teeth, veneer coating or emax coating treatments may be suggested, while a patient who wants a coating on one of their molars would be recommended to have zirconium coating.

Disadvantages of Metal-Supported Porcelain Dental Crown

  • It can cause discoloration and grayishness in the gum.
  • This material has a matte appearance.
  • It is not as transparent as natural teeth.
  • It can cause tooth sensitivity.
  • It may trigger a metal allergy.
  • If not properly maintained, it can cause bad breath.

Metal-supported porcelain veneer treatment is not preferred much nowadays due to the mentioned disadvantages. In porcelain dental crown treatments, the materials used for the underlying structure of the coating are no longer metal, so these problems are not encountered.

Which is the better Porcelain or Zirconium?

In the long run, zirconium crown becomes a better choice due to its healthiness, natural appearance, and durability, compared to metal-supported porcelain coating. Although metal-supported porcelain veneer may be cheaper than zirconium crown, various problems can arise over time with metal-supported porcelain dental crowns.

Advantages of Zirconium Dental Crown

  • It is highly resistant to breaking, cracking, and wearing.
