Special Features of Zirconia

  • Zirconia crowns were first introduced to dentistry in 2010. Before being milled for crowns, zirconia was used for endodontic posts and dental implants.
  • Monolithic milled zirconia is fairly opaque — it hides tooth discoloration and large core build-ups well.
    • Monolithic zirconia lacks the translucent properties that make it appear natural and lifelike.
    • A translucent version of zirconia was developed that more closely mimics the translucence of natural teeth at a slight decrease in strength.

Uses

  • Full crown coverage
  • Bridges

Tooth Preparation

  • More aggressive anatomical reduction is required for zirconia crowns than is required for e.Max.
  • Tooth reduction is similar to that required for a porcelain fused to metal crown.
  • Sharp angles and edges of zirconia crowns must be rounded and shoulders should be chamfered.

Color Choices

  • Multiple color options are available for zirconia crowns.

Delivery and Cementation

  • Cementation is achieved via mechanical retention using a glass ionomer resin dental cement.

Average Lifespan

  • Zirconia crowns are relatively new, which means that there are no long-term longevity studies available.

Taking Impressions in Order of Preference

  • Impression-free scans for digital workflow
    • The crown preparation, hard tissue, and the surrounding soft tissue are scanned chairside and transferred to the Stomadent dental lab digitally.
  • Hybrid technology
    • This method utilizes both scannable impression material and impression trays.
    • The impressions and bite are then individually scanned into STL files.
    • Images are created from these files and used to “print” 3D models in the dental lab.
  • Take traditional polyvinyl siloxane impressions and bite registrations

Certification
