Dental Crowns are one of the best options to restore anyone's dental function and aesthetic. There are two common types of materials used for dental crowns, such as Zirconia and Porcelain.
In this post, we will discuss the benefits of both of these materials, their durability, and if they present any disadvantages. You'll also find information about the best dental clinics, save money, and at the same time get high-quality dental care for these and other procedures.
What is a Zirconia Crown?
Crowns are cap-like teeth that cover a tooth that is damaged, misshapen or discolored, giving it a more aesthetic look.
Dental restorations on teeth for being misshapen, weakened, broken, or decayed are recommended to get a Dental Crown and for any other cosmetic reason.
Dental Crowns can also be used to cover up a dental implant and in conjunction with bridges to strengthen teeth.
What are Dental Crowns made out of?
The commonly known materials used to make dental crowns are ceramic, metal, and now even Zirconia. Made out of zirconium dioxide, a type of metal related to titanium, and has the aesthetic looks of ceramic.
Making zirconia crowns a very durable material for dental restoration with lasting results.
This material among dental crowns is now a popular choice. Here are some advantages.
Strength and durability make zirconia crowns one of the best options for patients and doctors. Your back teeth exert a lot of force when chewing food, and this material is optimal for being durable. Also, because zirconia is so strong, your teeth don't have to go through much preparation.
Zirconia is a very strong material which makes it very durable. Dr. David from our clinic in Playa del Carmen tells us that a zirconia crown can have a lifespan of up to 25 years, depending on the care of each patient, it can even last a lifetime.
This material is well known for matching the color shade of your teeth as desired, making the restoration of any teeth seem very natural on its final result.
Zirconia Crown Prices
Cosmetic or any restorative dental treatment is very high in cost, even more, when it comes to full-mouth restoration.
Many people are not able to restore their tooth structure with ease, making their dental health worsen with time. High costs on procedures make a dental problem worsen over time due to the difficulty many people have to pay for it.
Zirconia crowns tend to be from $1,000 to $2,500 each! Imagine having to restore at least two teeth from a root canal. That's $5,000 plus the cost of a root canal, which is around $1,000 more!

What is the difference between Crowns and Veneers?
Crowns and Veneers are a great option for dental restoration. They both improve the aesthetic appeal and function of your whole mouth. The difference between these two is that a Crown covers the entire tooth, while veneers only cover the front.
A dentist will guide you on your needs before starting any treatments and give you the best options that suit your specific needs.
Crowns cover the tooth that needs to be restored or, in some cases, a dental implant.
Dental Crowns restore and help improve the appearance of shapes or discolored teeth. They also protect and add stability to any teeth after procedures such as implant or root canal.
Dental crowns are great at looking as natural as your teeth. The dentists match the color and the correct shape to fit on the prepared teeth.
Crowns require any tooth to be prepared before putting them on. The teeth or tooth, need filing down to make room for the crown to fit in place.
Your dentist first makes an impression of the tooth that has already been trimmed down to later send the impression to the laboratory.
When your crowns are ready, that is when the dentists schedule your second visit to replace the temporary crown with the real one.
Veneers are very similar to dental crowns. They also restore and better the aesthetic of your smile. They are thin coverings adhered to the front surface of any teeth (usually the front teeth). Dental veneers have the great advantage of providing a brighter smile that looks and feels like natural teeth.
A veneer is recommended if the front of your teeth is chipped, broken, discolored, or smaller than the one surrounding it.
This treatment requires minimal preparation on your teeth.
The dentists start with trimming a half-millimeter from the surface of each tooth to make room for the veneer.
Afterward, an impression is taken, and the mold is sent to the laboratory to start working the veneers.
When the veneers are ready, 2 to 3 days depending on the specifications and number of veneers. Your second appointment is scheduled to start placing them. This whole process usually takes up to a week.
