They are designed to last for years before needing total and full replacement. They are made to look and even feel like the rest of your natural teeth.
Why might you need Zirconia Crowns?

Because zirconia is the strongest crown material currently available, they can last for decades without needing repair or replacement.

What is the procedure for getting Zirconia Crowns?
You will first come in and have the tooth prepared to be fitted for the crown. Impressions are made of the tooth and sent to a dental lab. You will go home the same day with a temporary crown. The dental lab will then create a full zirconia crown that is matched to the rest of your dentition. You will come back in to have the temporary crown removed and the zirconia crown placed. The crown is adjusted so that it fits more comfortably when you bite down.
