What are the Uses of Zirconium?
Zirconium is a durable and tissue-compatible material with high tensile strength, so it can be used as a ceramic-formed implant and abutment material in dentistry, and as a core material in fixed restorations (crown-bridge, lamina, inlay-onlay) and post restorations. The entry of zirconium ceramics into the industry has paralleled the development of computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM) technology.
In case of congenital discoloration (antibiotic, fluorine, etc.), which cannot be achieved with the teeth whitening method
As an alternative to wire treatment in patients with orthodontic (crowding) problems
In teeth with excessive tissue loss that cannot be filled
In those with tooth gap (diastema) that cannot be closed with lamina
People with metal-supported bridges and crowns in their mouths
Fracture restorations that cannot be corrected with composite fillings
In the correction of old fillings with discolored and structured
How long does the production phase of zirconium teeth take?
First, the teeth are prepared and impressions are taken for crown restoration.
Then, the compatibility of the coatings prepared in the laboratory with the gingiva is checked.
In the last stage, aesthetics, closure and phonation are rehearsed. It is checked for compatibility with your teeth and face. If there is no problem, the coatings are adhered. These processes are completed in an average of 7-10 days.
