    Zirconia Layered With Porcelain is the underlaying structure of zirconia called a coping or substructure with layered porcelain for a customized look.

    Find below a picture of each different types of zirconia crown.

    Digital Design

    Manufacturing of the zirconia crown consists of scanning either the stone model or designing the digital impressions. After you have the digital file of your mouth. The lab technician designs the zirconia crown with CAD software (Computer-Aided Design).


    After the Crown/Bridge is design

    The file is put into a CAM Software (Computer-Aided Milling) and from that is placed into the CNC Machine as the picture showed.

    Zirconia Crown Glazing (Final Step)

    In its unpolished state, zirconia is highly abrasive and will cause significant wear to the opposing dentition. When zirconia is polished correctly, it creates minimal wear on the opposing teeth.

    If a zirconia restoration requires an adjustment in the mouth, re-polishing can be a time-consuming task to do correctly. Before adjusting the polished zirconia, if only minimal adjustments are required, it’s worth considering an adjustment to the opposing dentition instead.

    Copy-Milling technology

    The prepared tooth is impressed
    poured in gypsum to form a die.
    A wax pattern is built over the die……Then Ceramic blocks are carved into restorations by the aid of computer controlled milling machine that is guided by the constructed wax patter

    Ceramic ingots are softened by heat and pressed into a refractory mold using special alumina injector.

      Translucency of Zirconia Restorations

      Different brands of zirconia provide different translucencies like stated above zirconia can be LT (Low Translucency) MT (Medium Translucency) HT (High Translucency).

      Usually, the more translucent a crown the less fracture strength it has.

      This doesn’t really affect crowns but bridges need that extra strength.


      HT is for anterior teeth (front) LT is mainly used on back teeth.  Zirconia is becoming the leading restoration along with all porcelain crowns, as has got better for the patients in the last 10 years significantly.

      ADVANTAGES of zirconia crowns are:

      • They provide great aesthetics

      • They are strong and long-lasting (less possibilities of chipping or breaking).

      • The process can be less time consuming because zirconia can be cut and shaped at the same dental office.

      • There’s no need to send them over to a dental lab.

      • Zirconia Crowns are less likely to wear down due to their strength.

      • They are biocompatible: as metal free crowns, they are not likely to cause allergic reactions.

      DISADVANTAGES of zirconia crowns are:

      • Zirconia looks less than natural

      • The hardness of the zirconia could cause wear on opposing teeth.
