I/ Porcelain fused to ceramic crowns – PFC (Titanium/ gold/ platinum)

The characteristics of Zirconia crown:
Zirconia is the formed by chemical reactions between Zirconium (Zr) and oxygen (O2). Due to good biological compatibility characteristic, Zirconia is used for medicine in general and dentistry in particular.
Furthermore, the exceptional characteristics of Zirconia such as: natural white, hardness & durability and abrasion resistant. The dentists have researched and applied Zirconia to develop in the dental field.
Restoration porcelain crown by Zirconia material is quite hard and high melting temperature. Therefore, making a Zirconia porcelain crown, cannot apply normally methods so we have to use dedicated system in dental field by CAD/ CAM methods (Computer-Aided Design/ Computer-Aided Manufacturing) to make a supporting framework for the outside aesthetic ceramic layers.
