In dentistry, there are 4 main classes of materials used in the reconstruction decayed, damaged or missing teeth. They are metals, polymers, composites and ceramics.
Ceramic is derived from the Greek word “keramos” literally meaning “burnt stuff” but has come to mean any material that has been produced by burning or firing.
In dentistry ceramics are widely used for veneers, crowns, bridges and implants.
Porcelain refers to a range of ceramic materials containing specific range of compounds in certain proportions which is then fired to a glazed state.
Dental Ceramics have excellent biocompatibility with human tissue, while also being chemically inert (non-reactive to chemicals).

Zyrconia Porcelain Crowns
Zirconia (Zirconium Oxide) is a white powered metal used to create multiple dental frameworks from crowns to bridges and other dental structures.
Since the 1970’s it has been growing in popularity in cosmetic dentistry because of it it’s many practical and aesthetic advantages.
Zirconia is regarded as the best material for bridges. Although as strong and the latest state-of-the-art porcelain crowns Zirconia is significantly less expensive than all porcelain crowns and about the same price as modern metal crowns.
Because zirconia can be milled with a laser-milling machine, zirconia crowns fit better, are less labor intensive and involve less grinding down of neighboring healthy teeth. Because of these reasons zirconia can be a much better option than all porcelain bridges while speeding up the procedure so our patients can have more time enjoying their stay in Cyprus
