To understand what it is – a prosthesis with Zirconia, otherwise, Pritam (Prettau), you need to understand the technology to create crowns on the basis of this material.
- In the first stage, poured a framework for future design. Do this by using a special milling machine, which is loaded zirconium oxide, and the computer design model of the tooth.
- In the second stage of the creation of porcelain crowns applied a lot of what do the outer part. It adds layers gradually annealing in a furnace to ensure high strength.
- Surface make, based on the selected hue, staining the enamel appropriately, so that the crown is indistinguishable from the natural numbers.
This technology is called CAD/CAM. Through the participation of computer and automation eliminated all mistakes and errors in the final result.
Installation of zirconium crowns on teeth
The installation process in the dentist’s office is as follows:
- To start, remove the old seal and heal any inflammation, caries and other problems of the oral cavity. After all the sick units or to put gums crowns, no one will.
- Next is the preparation of the tooth according to the thickness of the future crown.
- To make a crown as natural forms, the doctor creates a mold of the jaw. Due to this, the crown design so that it does not stand out against the background of natural dentition.
- While the patient will wait for a crown or bridge out of Zirconia, it will install temporary plastic counterpart, and will optocat respectively teeth.
- A ready-made design try on and fixed with cement mortar. The doctor will definitely give advice on how to care for her, to use time lasted as long as possible.
Doctors give a guarantee on zirconium crown for life. This is a very durable material and if not destroyed, then it will last in original state for decades. But this will happen only in the case when you care for your teeth, and takes care of the design.

We are not faced with the need to put the crown, did not even know that they are so different. The doctor explained me in detail the differences in materials and designs and gave the opportunity to make a decision. I still have made a choice in favor of zirconium, because I do not like the dentist’s office and do not want to visit it continuously to change off the crown, which is finite. I’d rather suffer once, but forget about this problem forever.
The process of installation, preparation and pre-treatment took me more than two months, but I was pleased with the result. My teeth began to look even better than once upon a time. I have the feeling that I’m younger by a dozen years. But it wasn’t even a goal.
Don’t like going to doctors, especially the dentist. And therefore decided to choose zirconium crown or bridge to a time to do the restoration and don’t think about it. The result I am satisfied. The last two years I go to the doctor just for a General inspection, no additional procedures are required.
