The quest for stronger esthetic crowns has been ongoing in dentistry for generations.  Today, we are able to utilize a material with heightened esthetics, called Zirconia.  It as the strength of metal and the esthetics of porcelain.  It can even hold up better for people with a habit of clenching and grinding.  Dr. List has begun using this type of crown for most posterior (back) teeth.  If you have ever chipped a tooth or crown and wanted something stronger to last longer and still tooth-colored, now we can offer Zirconia crowns as the solution.  Please ask us about it at your next visit.
