Zirconium also called Zirconia (Cercon) is rapidly becoming the material
of choice for dental crowns. It is a very strong material able to
withstand the wear and tear of every day use. Aesthetically, it is
translucent very similar to a natural tooth, reflecting light in much
the same way.
This means that Zirconium, Zirconia has a very aesthetic effect, which may be important if your new crowns are to be at the front of your mouth and is particularly relevant in cases where the crowns will be seen beside natural teeth.
Zirconium crowns allow light to pass through as with a normal tooth giving a natural look, unlike other metal cores which block the light. Unlike Amalgam Fillings and metal alloys, the human body accepts zirconium, zirconia as a natural material, so you would not need to worry about allergies or adverse reactions.
