Dental crowns are an excellent option to improve the function and appearance of a damaged or decayed tooth. While dental crowns can be made from many materials, zirconia dental crowns are gaining traction for their unrivaled beauty and durability.
Experience the transformative benefits of zirconia crowns for the smile. The team at Clint Bruyere, DDS, in Longview, Texas, doesn’t place just any crowns but exceptionally durable, lifelike, and functional restorations that truly enhance oral health and appearance.
Understanding zirconia dental crowns
Zirconia is a white solid ceramic derived from zirconium — a chemical element in the earth’s crust. Zirconia has many uses because of its desirable properties, including aesthetics, toughness, biocompatibility, and thermal resistance. When used for dental restorations, zirconia duplicates results similar to the natural enamel.
Zirconia crowns reinforce and protect weakened teeth to ensure they function and look like other teeth. Moreover, zirconia dental crowns can aesthetically improve unattractive teeth for a winning smile.

Benefits of zirconia dental crowns
While zirconia is non-metal, it’s one of dentistry’s strongest and most durable restorations. In fact, dentists recommend zirconia crowns to patients who grind (brux) their teeth because these restorations can withstand the forces exerted during teeth grinding. Zirconia crowns are more durable than porcelain crowns and even than some metal alloys used to make crowns.
Besides resilience, zirconia dental crowns boast other benefits, including:
- Near-permanent solution for damaged or decayed teeth — zirconia crowns can last over 20 years with proper maintenance
- Unmatched natural appearance — zirconia comes in many shades and can be color-matched with the surrounding teeth for a seamless appearance
- Biocompatible — Zirconia is well tolerated by the body and doesn’t cause adverse body reactions when placed in the mouth
- Stain-resistant — zirconia crowns are impervious to chips, stains, and corrosion, preserving a stunning smile for years
- Better oral health — zirconia is unlikely to develop rough edges that promote bacteria growth
