Zirconium is a preferred material in cases where physical durability is at the forefront as well as aesthetic expectation. It is suitable for use in cases where the level of destruction is advanced, in the presence of missing teeth or in cases where teeth clenching is observed. Today, with the advancement of technology, there has been a great improvement in the aesthetic results that can be obtained with zirconium coatings. It is possible to apply a smile design with zirconium coating materials with high light transmittance offered by many brands. Another advantage in this treatment is that people get a natural tooth appearance. Thanks to the coatings that are applied in colors suitable for the colors of the individual’s own teeth, artificiality that may occur in the tooth structure is avoided.
Zirconium veneers should not be confused with leaf porcelain treatment. In the treatment of leaf porcelain, that is, laminate veneer, only the part of the tooth facing the cheek and lip is abraded, while in zirconium veneers, it is necessary to abrade the tooth in a peripheral way.
In order to make zirconium veneers, local anesthesia is required to be applied to the teeth. After anesthesia is applied, the tooth is circumferentially abraded. The measurement is taken. The measurement taken is sent to the laboratory. In the meantime, temporary veneers are applied to the patient. In this way, the patient does not remain toothless during the treatment and can continue his daily life. After the necessary preparations are made in the laboratory, rehearsals are made. Changes can be made in rehearsals until the patient and physician are satisfied. The purpose of this is to make the design suitable for the face and jaw lines of the individuals. The zirconium crowns, which take their final form, are adhered to the teeth. The treatment is completed. After the treatment is completed, the individuals should have their dental check-ups done regularly. In this treatment, the natural appearance of which is obtained, the main teeth must be checked and treated beforehand in cases that require treatment.
The biocompatibility of zirconium crowns with surrounding tissues (gingiva) is quite high. In this way, it is frequently preferred in prostheses on implants. For detailed information about treatments, you can review our blog post.
The dental material with the least surface roughness after the polishing process is zirconium, on which no porcelain has ever been applied. As a result of correct laboratory procedures, zirconium crowns are the gold standard as the prosthetic material on the implant not only in the anterior teeth but also in the posterior teeth. In this way, a natural appearance is obtained in the teeth. You can visit our Instagram page for detailed information about the treatment processes of our patients.
