15 Bad Habits That Damage Your Teeth…14 August 2023
Do You Know The Mistakes You Make When Brushing Your Teeth?15 August 2023
Who does not want a confident smile, snow-white and well-groomed teeth… However, no matter how much attention you pay to your oral and dental care, problems arising from your tooth structure may prevent you from doing so. Today, zirconium teeth, which are increasingly used with the developing technology, come to your rescue in this regard.
Dentist Sümer stated that zirconium, which has features such as biological harmony, natural appearance, aesthetics and mechanical resistance, has started to be used in aesthetic dentistry; ‘We safely prefer zirconium substructured porcelains because they are both aesthetic enough to be used in the front teeth and strong enough to be used in the back teeth. These systems increase the quality of life of people.
When and where is zirconium tooth used?
If the bleaching process has not yielded results in your teeth due to antibiotics, fluoride or hereditary discolouration,
If your teeth have already been cut,
If you have split teeth,
If you have a metal-supported bridge in your mouth,
If you want to have your broken teeth fixed,
If the colour and structure of your old fillings have deteriorated,
You have crooked and crooked teeth; but you do not have time for orthodontic treatment.
If there is too much material loss in your teeth to be filled, zirconium substructured porcelains can come to your aid.
What is the difference of zirconium dental veneers?
Due to its insulating properties, hot and cold sensitivity does not develop.
Since zirconium transmits light, it creates an aesthetic appearance very similar to the natural tooth structure. Even very well-made metal-supported porcelains have a dullness and artificiality. For this reason, zirconium is preferred especially in the front teeth.
In some lights, metal-supported porcelains give the appearance of a dark coloured cavity as if they are not in the mouth. Zirconium, on the other hand, passes all kinds of light just like natural teeth.
Metal-supported porcelains, crown bridges (veneers) are mechanically bonded to the tooth. Zirconium is mechanically and chemically attached to the tooth. Therefore, their retention is much higher than metal supported ones.
Since there is no metal in the substructure, there is no dark colour line at the crown – gum line. A more aesthetic appearance is provided.
Since porcelain surfaces are extremely smooth, it minimises staining and tartar formation caused by smoking and similar reasons.
It does not change colour with external factors such as coffee, tea and cigarettes.
It is a healthy material that does not cause bad taste in the mouth, gingival problems and bad breath.
The pressure and bruises that occur in the gums due to the previously made metal-supported porcelain crowns are completely eliminated with the application of zirconium (veneers) crowns, and an aesthetic and natural appearance is obtained.
When the gum recedes, zirconium maintains its aesthetic appearance, while metal-supported porcelains create a bad appearance in the area where they merge with the tooth.
The risk of allergy that may occur against some metals used in the substructure (nickel, etc.) is not present in zirconium substructured porcelains.
Since it is in perfect harmony with the body, it can be easily used in people who have gum disease or who are prone to gum disease. It does not cause gum problems if oral hygiene is given importance.
