Zirconium Veneer

Many people experience aesthetic and functional problems due to dental problems. Especially in cases such as decay, cracking, fracture or discoloration, one of the commonly used methods is dental veneers. Although porcelain and ceramic veneers are widely used, especially in recent years, zirconium veneers have started to stand out as a strong alternative. Since zirconium veneers cannot be distinguished from natural teeth thanks to their light transmittance, they have become a frequently used method in smile design applications.

What Is Zirconium Veneer?

Zirconium veneers, a white alloy, have a strong structure and a natural appearance. Since bridge and prosthesis applications are usually made using gray metal supports, there is no aesthetic appearance; zirconium is extremely close to the natural tooth color. Therefore, it has become widespread in dental coating applications and has become one of the most preferred coating types.

Zirconium veneers can be preferred in the treatment of dental caries or in smile design applications to create a whiter appearance. Due to its aesthetic and natural appearance, it is especially ideal for the restoration of the front teeth. This type of coating, which has a zirconium dioxide infrastructure, does not contain metal and has a high level of gum compatibility.The teeth that cannot be whitened with bleaching method and have deep discoloration can be made white, the gaps between the teeth can be closed, broken teeth can be restored, missing teeth can be completed and many other problems can be solved with zirconium coating applications.

How Is Zirconium Veneer Made?

Since zirconium veneer applications are performed under local anesthesia, there is no pain or pain. Therefore, it can be said that it is an application with high patient comfort. The process steps followed in zirconium coating application are usually as follows:

  • In order for the prepared zirconium teeth to fit perfectly in the mouth, the teeth to be applied are thinned,
  • The inside of the mouth is cleaned and disinfected and the risk of infection is eliminated,
  • A detailed impression of the tooth or teeth to be crowned is taken using special instruments,
  • These measurements are sent to the laboratory to produce zirconium veneers suitable for the patients,
  • During this process, temporary veneers are placed so that the patient can perform functional tasks such as eating and drinking,
  • After about 1 week, the permanent coatings are ready,
  • Temporary coatings are removed and replaced with permanent coatings.

A check-up is required within 7 to 10 days after the application in order to investigate whether there is a problem with the veneers and to make the necessary interventions in such cases. In addition, following the care recommendations recommended by the dentist helps zirconium veneers to last much longer.

Advantages Of Zirconium Veneers

Zirconium coatings are a highly effective method to eliminate aesthetic problems to achieve the desired appearance and to increase the comfort of life by correcting functional problems. It is possible to list the prominent advantages of zirconium coatings as follows:

  • As with porcelain veneers, there is no gray, black or dark color on the teeth or gums,
  • Since zirconium is a light-transmissive material, it is almost impossible to distinguish them from real teeth,
  • It is metal-free and has high gum compatibility,
  • In case of a possible color change, teeth whitening applications that can be applied to the person’s own teeth can also be applied to zirconium crowns,
  • It has a structure that prevents bad breath,
  • As it is a durable material, it does not create hot and cold sensitivity,
  • It also helps to protect the gums as it easily harmonizes with the gums.
