About Zirconia Implants Market:
Since the last decade zirconia based ceramics have been successfully introduced into the market. Development in new dental practice is often driven by new dental materials and technology; the basic advantages of the zirconia crown are listed below.
- Can handle ware and tare
- Extra tough
- Less tooth removal
- No metal fuse
- Custom made (shape, color, size)
- Translucent to be similar as natural teeth
The biggest advantage alone could be the aesthetic effect which it provides; especially for the front teeth it is important to look natural. It will not only replace a tooth but it can be shaped and be modified to look better than the tooth it has replaced and the fact that it is biocompatible it can stay within your mouth for a long time.
Zirconia vs Titanium
Zirconia and Titanium materials can be integrate in teeth, with equal amount of success. However, being so long in the industry, titanium materials have gained the higher trust of the dentists and laboratory technicians as compared to the zirconia materials. Currently, many patients have the still functioning titanium implants after more than 30 years. However, the similar success is expected from the zirconia. Nevertheless, till the zirconia material provide the similar result it is Zirconia material will not be able to take up the Titanium Market Share.
Zirconia vs Lithium Disilicate (E-max)
Lithium silicate is also known for E-max crowns which is a type of ceramic. E-max is more translucent than zirconia and there for lets in more light. If the tooth needs to be masked out often then zirconia is better option. Also, zirconia is generally stronger than E-max but in both cases the hardness is not relevant unless it is used without porcelain. Hence the usage of
The ideal use of Zirconia is where substrate is dark and where extra strength is needed and for E-max it is when high light transmission is wanted and maximum aesthetics.
The cost of Zirconia Crown
The cost of zirconia crown differs from experience of the dentist, size of the tooth/crown and country to country. For instance, the average prices in UK shoot up to 600 pounds per unit and in the US it is 1000 $ per unit.
