Zirconia Teeth

Zirconia Teeth

One of the oldest methods used to eliminate the tooth losses is to make use of veneers. Although the use of implants has become widespread in current standards, the porcelain veneers also have advantages in some cases. Until recently, Biodental veneers were made, which are a kind of plastic over a metal infrastructure. The use of Biodents has disappeared in the last 10-15 years, and porcelain veneers have become widespread. The construction method of the porcelain veneers is also the same. Porcelain is piled up on a metal infrastructure, and porcelain teeth in quite hard and smooth structure are obtained by firing in high-temperature ovens. Besides the success of this method, it has also disadvantages such as displaying a dull image and metal reflection on the edge of gum. In porcelain veneers, the porcelain made on a matte opaque metal infrastructure displays a dull image even if made in desired colour. These shortcomings of porcelain veneers have been resolved with the emergence of zirconia.

Zirconia is a metal used in a very large area from aviation to electronics industry. The feature distinguishing this metal from others is its light-permeable structure. In addition to this, zirconia is non-allergic and compatible with tissue. Studies have revealed that the gum is compatible with zirconia coatings and the openings on the edges of the coatings are less. The aesthetical advantage of light-permeability, which is the most important feature of zirconia, is that it gives a sense of depth and looks more natural. The light transmitting from zirconia reflects from the natural tooth and imitates the tooth. As zirconia is not an oxidizing metal, it does not have side effects like giving a metal-like taste to the mouth in the long term and painting the surrounding gum. By the same token, they do not cause galvanic current in the mouth.

In the making of the zirconia coatings, the zirconia blocks are processed with CAD-CAM technology and made the infrastructure. Over this infrastructure, the tooth with desired form and colour is created by porcelain piling method. The form and colour of the tooth is approved in clinical environment, and its detail colour and polishing is made after glazing. A zirconia which is finely made and also cleanly used by the patient, may serve us for years.

Implant

The screws placed in place of the lost teeth with the aim of treatment are called Implants. The main objective of dentistry is to replace the lost teeth as functioally and aesthetically similar to natural teeth. The implants are placed into the jawbone by a simple surgical procedure under local anesthesia.
