A dental crown can often be seen as a significant investment, although it can be a necessary one to preserve a damaged tooth. This is why it can make sense to travel to our world class dental clinic in the heart of Budapest.
The cost of dentistry in Hungary is considerably lower than in many other countries and yet the service you receive cannot be matched.
When it comes the type of crowns on offer, you will be able to choose from a few different options. Porcelain and metal are perhaps the most traditional materials, and these can certainly be a good choice.
Our dental clinic also offers zirconia crowns, and these are infinitely more durable than their porcelain or metal cousins, meaning that with proper care, the crown can last a lifetime.
Many other dental clinics around the world will also give you the option of a zirconia crown and yet they can be prohibitively expensive. This is not the case in our Budapest clinic, and you will be surprised at the affordability of zirconia crowns. Often the key factor when it comes to zirconia crowns vs porcelain is the difference in price, but this is far less of an issue when you receive your crown from us.
Crowns made from a porcelain composite are of course durable, and are designed to last. Zirconia crowns have the edge simply because they are far stronger, greatly reducing the chance of any cracking of the crown in the future. Zirconia (or to use its formal title, yttria-stabilized zirconia) is the strongest composite used in dentistry today.
You simply cannot find any type of dental prosthesis that is stronger. This added strength make zirconia crowns the preferred choice for side or rear molars, as these teeth generally do the bulk of the work when it comes to chewing your food. You will eat and smile with confidence, knowing that it’s practically impossible to damage your zirconia crowns.
They are not susceptible to decay and cannot be affected by dental plaque, although you will still need to ensure that you practise good dental habits to keep your gums and natural teeth nice and healthy.
Zirconia Crowns Considered To Be Extremely Low Irritant
Even porcelain crowns generally contain a certain amount of metal, and while this is not a problem in the majority of patients, it can cause irritation in a small number of cases. Zirconia crowns completely overcome this hurdle. It’s almost a contradiction that something so incredibly strong is also so sensitive, but this is the case with these marvellous dental crowns.
While zirconia crowns are perhaps not the most cost-effective option, their sheer strength and durability can make them well worth the additional investment. And of course, with the affordable price of crowns at our Budapest clinic, this additional investment will be minimal.
