Zirconia is highly resistant to cracking, chipping, or staining, unlike other ceramic materials
It is non-porous, which makes it stronger and more durable than alternative materials such as porcelain
The material is non-abrasive; it causes no irritation to the gums or other soft tissues of the mouth
