porcelain and zirconia teeth comparasion

Simple comparison between porcelain VS zirconia teeth

  1. Cobalt-chromium porcelain dental crown:

Real non-precious metal porcelain teeth full crowns, cobalt-chromium porcelain teeth were first-used to make artificial joints, with outstanding biocompatibility, and have been widely-used in the field of dental restorations, safe, reliable, reasonably priced, and stable in performance.

advantage:

Good biocompatibility, high strength, economical value and high cost performance.

shortcoming:

  1. After the metal is oxidized, gray oxides will be formed, and black gum lines will appear.
  2. Because it contains metal components, it is generally not possible to do MRI directly. MRI CT can be performed only after the porcelain teeth are removed.
  3. There is metal, so the color is unnatural and the aesthetics is low. Not recommended for use on front teeth.
  4. Light transmittance and aesthetics are average.
  5. Need to grind teeth.

  1. All-ceramic crowns can be used to restore the teeth whose root canal treatment is completed or whose defects are too large.
  2. Unable to perform dental implants.

Contraindications

  1. The patient has the habit of biting deeply, grinding teeth, and gnawing hard food.
  2. The patient has oral inflammation or periodontal disease.
  3. All-ceramic crowns (Zirconium dioxide all-ceramic teeth):

Because of the lack of unsightly metal layers, all-ceramic dental crowns are the most perfect and natural dentures today. Transparent and beautiful like teeth.

advantage:

  3. It has good biocompatibility, does not contain metal components, and will not cause allergic reactions and irritation of the gums.
  4. MRI can be done without removing the crown
  5. Hard and wear-resistant, high compression resistance.

shortcoming:

  1. The price is more expensive than porcelain dental crowns.
  2. Need to grind teeth.

  1. All-ceramic zirconia crowns can be used to restore the teeth whose root canal treatment is completed or whose defects are too large.
  2. Unable to perform dental implants.
