All-ceramic crowns are made of translucent porcelain, and they reflect light like your natural teeth and look almost exactly like them. But their durability may be less due to the inherent need for greater care against heavy forces. On the other hand, zirconium crowns are very strong and last longer but don't have the same esthetic results compared to the ceramic crown.
I prefer an emax crown on the front teeth. They are the most cosmetic looking (natural looking). Zirconia crowns are strongest, but not as cosmetic or natural looking. I use Zirconia crowns on all my molar teeth for the strength factor.
Depends upon your bite and clenching/grinding habit. Zirconium is stronger, ceramic is more esthetic. Another option is porcelain fused to zirconium.
Hi, The new dental materials has been improved so much better in the last decade. If you are going to have a crown on your front teeth, Please ask your dentist to prescribe you for Layered Zirconia crown if you are looking for a stronger material. Zirconia is much stronger than regular old-fashion all ceramic jacket crown. All the best
Zirconia is a type of ceramic crown - excellent choice
