Is a zirconia crown better than porcelain?

At the office of Bruce E. Matthews, DDS, we provide patients in Wilmington, DE with comprehensive, quality cosmetic dentistry. We use modern materials to correct smile imperfections and leave you with the naturally healthy-looking smile you have always dreamed of.

Custom Zirconia Crowns

One treatment we offer that will dramatically improve your smile is zirconia crowns placement. We customize your zirconia crown to fit over a decayed or damaged tooth for a functional, longer-lasting alternative to crowns made from porcelain, ceramic, or gold.

Porcelain Vs. Zirconia for Dental Crowns

While porcelain crowns have always been prized for their natural-looking appearance, zirconia crowns are becoming more widely used. The reason is that zirconia has proven to be superior in many ways to porcelain as a dental material. Zirconia is stronger, stands up better to wear and tear, and gives a better overall appearance.

Porcelain crowns have a reputation for chipping over time, while zirconia is virtually indestructible. The benefit for the patient is a strong and durable tooth crown that can last 10 to 15 years with proper care. In some cases, a zirconia crown can provide a lifetime of service.
