Do you have a tooth that is severely damaged or decayed? Do you have a root canal coming up? Are you wanting to cover up a tooth permanently discolored from past trauma? If any of these questions apply to you, then your dentist may recommend having a dental crown placed. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that fit over your natural tooth to restore its appearance and function.
When it comes to dental crowns, there are several different materials to choose from. There can also be various types of each material, depending on what your dentist has to offer. With so many options available, it can be hard to know which one to pick. Nowadays, the ideal dental crown is one that is both durable and aesthetic. If these are two of the most important factors to you, then a Bruxzir crown is the way to go.
Bruxzir crowns are a type of ceramic crown that is made from zirconium oxide, also known as zirconia. This material is rapidly increasing in popularity and is not only used for crowns, but for bridges, inlays/onlays, implant-supported crowns and dentures, and veneers. At this point you are probably wondering what is so great about Bruxzir crowns. Here are a few reasons why a Bruxzir crown is one of the best dental crowns:
Bruxzir crowns are fabricated out of solid zirconia, which is the strongest ceramic dental material. Unlike other types of ceramic crowns, Bruxzir crowns do not have a porcelain coating. This ultimately means that they are not prone to chipping like all-porcelain crowns. They are even strong enough to endure the extra force of bruxers. In fact, Bruxzir crowns are so strong that they can withstand the force of a hammer. Don’t believe me? Check out this video!.
Can Reduce Wear
After that video, you might be wondering what a Bruxzir crown will do to your opposing teeth. Although Bruxzir crowns can cause some opposing enamel wear, there are few modifications that can be made to reduce wear and preserve the opposing enamel. The first way is to have your dentist request that your crown be polished, rather than glazed. Diamond polishing Bruxzir crowns has shown to be an effective way of reducing wear on the opposing teeth. However, this means the crown itself may not look as nice as it would have with the glaze.
Each Bruxzir crown is precisely fabricated using CAD/CAM technology from a dental impression or digital scan of a patient’s mouth. After the crown has been milled to the exact dimensions specified, it will be placed in a oven to sinter for 9 hours. It will then be sandblasted to smooth out the surface, then stained and glazed. The technique used to stain and glaze the crown gives it a natural, translucent appearance. Each crown is also color matched to the requested shade to ensure it is the proper color. These steps taken during fabrication mean that the final result is flawless.
The careful fabrication process of Bruxzir crowns also means that they will fit better than other types of dental crowns. While many dental crowns have a “speed bump” or excess material between the crown and the natural tooth structure, Bruxzir crowns have a feather edge. This means that a dental explorer tool cannot feel where the crown ends and the tooth begins. Not only will this make the crown look more natural, but it will be more comfortable as well.
As you can see, there are a few very compelling reasons why Bruxzir crowns are the best dental crown available today. For starters, they are ridiculously strong without causing much wear on opposing teeth. They are also fabricated to both look and feel like natural teeth. If you are looking for an ideal dental crown, then ask your dentist if Bruxzir crowns are right for you.
Dr. Pasha Javaheri Saatchi attended Boston University School of Dental Medicine for four years, ultimately landing him back in New York City for his one-year residency at Staten Island University Hospital. Pasha’s office also has quite an interesting history, opening in 1960 with Dr. Felder, then being bought out in 1995 by Dr. Zomick, and finally being established as Pasha Dental in 2010. Pasha is proud to say he still sees some of Dr. Felder’s patients to this day and has even treated four generations of the same family!
