Zirconia crowns are a recommendable aesthetic solution in patients with gingival recession. These veneers are similar in color to enamel and allow a certain amount of light to pass through, just like natural teeth.
Zirconia crowns are individually and custom designed through specific software and machines.
Aesthetic veneers (also called veneers) are thin, but resistant and durable sheets, used for cosmetic correction of the dental row. These sheets are placed on the front surface of the teeth.
These veneers are made of different materials: at first they were made of feldspathic porcelain, but this material was not strong enough and veneers made of it were too robust.
Today, composite dental veneers are made (composite resins also used as filling material), there are also zirconium dioxide veneers, but the most innovative and aesthetically perfect dental veneers are Emax ceramic veneers, created based on lithium disilicate and produced by the German company Ivoclar Vivadent.
In lithium disilicate crystals, the transparency coefficient is the same as that of natural tooth enamel, so veneers made of this material are visually identical to natural teeth.
In addition, the veneers of this material are very resistant and durable.
