15 Bad Habits That Harm Your Teeth…8 October 2020
Who wouldn’t want to smile confidently and have white and well-groomed teeth… However, no matter how much you pay attention to your oral and dental care, problems caused by your tooth structure may prevent you from doing this. Being used more and more thanks to the developing technology, zirconium teeth come to your rescue in this regard.
Stating that the use of metal-based porcelains are diminishing every day in aesthetic dentistry, Dentist Sümer explained zirconium, which has properties such as biological adaptation, natural appearance, aesthetic and mechanical resistance, has started to be used and added, ‘We confidently prefer zirconium based porcelains because they are both aesthetic enough to be used in front teeth and robust enough to be used in posterior teeth. These systems improve people’s quality of life. ‘ .
When and where do you use zirconium tooth?
- If the bleaching process has not yielded results in the stains on your teeth due to antibiotics, fluoride or hereditary reasons,
- If your teeth have been cut already,
- If you have seperated teeth,
- If you have a metal-supported bridge in your mouth,
- If you want to fix your broken teeth,
- If the color and structure of your old fillings are damaged,
- If you have crooked and misaligned teeth but you don’t have time for orthodontic treatment.
- If there is excessive loss of material in your teeth that cannot be filled, porcelains with zirconium infrastructure can come to your rescue.
How are zirconium crowns different?
- As it has insulating properties, you do not develop sensitivity to hot or cold.
- Zirconium creates an aesthetic appearance that is very similar to the natural tooth structure as it transmits light. There is a dullness and artificiality even in well-made metal-backed porcelains. That is why zirconium is preferred especially for front teeth.
- Metal-backed porcelains look like a dark space under some lights as if there was a gap between the teeth. Zirconium, on the other hand, transmits all kinds of light just like natural teeth.
- Metal-supported porcelains, crown bridges (veneers) are mechanically bonded to the tooth. Zirconium is attached to the tooth mechanically and chemically. Therefore, the level of retention is much higher than the crowns with metal supports.
- Since there is no metal in the structure of full porcelain crowns, there is no dark line at the crown-gum level. A more aesthetic look achieved.
- Since the porcelain surfaces are extremely smooth, it minimizes staining and tartar formation caused by smoking and similar reasons.
- It does not change color with external factors like coffee, tea, smoking.
- It is a healthy material that does not cause taste related complaints, gum problems and bad breath.
- The pressure and bruises that occur on the gums due to the metal-supported porcelain crowns that were applied before are completely eliminated by the application of zirconium crowns and an aesthetic and natural appearance is obtained.
- When the gums recede, zirconium preserves its aesthetic appearance, while metal-supported porcelains create a bad appearance in the area which they meet the tooth.
- The allergy risk that can occur with some metals (nickel, etc.) used in the infrastructure is not found in zirconium-based porcelains.
- Since it is perfectly compatible with the body, it can be used easily in people with gum disease or who are prone to gum disease. If oral hygiene is given importance, you will not experience gum problems.
