Zirconium coating is one of the types of best dental coatings whose gum and biological compatibility is closest to the natural tooth. It can even be done with peace of mind for patients who are allergic to porcelain veneers on metal.

Turkey Medicals Dentist Co-ordinator – answers to your questions about zirconium coatings and implants.

What does Antalya zirconium dental coating mean?

Due to its white color, light transmission and durability, it is a groundbreaking coating type after metal-on-metal porcelain in dentistry that allows aesthetic prosthetic treatments in dental treatments.

Will I have zirconium plated teeth done, is it harmful?

Zirconium is not harmful to the teeth. Even patients who are allergic to porcelain veneers on metal can be made of zirconium plating with peace of mind.

Zirconium coatings are one of the types of coatings whose gum harmony and biological harmony are closest to the natural tooth.


Why should I choose zirconium tooth coating? What are the advantages?

Because the light transmittance of zirconium dental coatings is very close to our natural teeth, it looks natural and is not very obvious.

Its compatibility with the gums is very good compared to traditional over-metal porcelain. Porcelain on metal can cause a purplish appearance on the gums, but this is not the case with zirconium.

Zirconium veneers in Antalya dentist may be preferred, especially when making your front teeth, as it will allow you to get the closest look to natural teeth.

It is more biologically compatible. In some of our patients, an allergy to porcelain veneers with a metal substrate may occur. Zirconium coatings should be the first choice in such cases.

Dental tissue is cut less than the tooth that will be made of zirconium. However, in traditional over-metal porcelain, tooth tissue is cut more to reduce the grayish image that will be reflected from the metal and provide a more natural image.

Since fewer cuts are made, the hot-cold sensitivity is also expected to be less.

If a single tooth is to be coated, it is more appropriate to make a zirconium tooth because it cannot be distinguished due to its similarity to natural teeth.

Are there any disadvantages of zirconium coatings?

Zirconium bridges are not preferred because they are more fragile than traditional over-metal porcelain in cases where there are very long tooth cavities.

It is more expensive than traditional over-metal porcelain.


How much pain does it cause after having an implant?

This depends on the person’s pain tolerance. Most patients experience minimal discomfort after the implant and can easily return to their normal daily activities immediately after surgery. Also, the amount of pain depends on the type of procedure you are undergoing. If you have undergone a complex procedure, you may experience mild pain after the procedure.

What happens if the implant is rejected by the body?

Dental implants are designed as a permanent replacement for missing teeth or teeth and are an alternative to removable dentures or fixed bridges. If the person undergoing the dental implant procedure has an allergy to titanium or insufficient jaw bone, he is rejected.

Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

Almost everyone who lacks a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all teeth is a candidate for dental implants.

Are dental implants permanent?

Unlike natural teeth, dental implants are not susceptible to dental diseases such as decay, but the health of the gums is vital for maintaining permanent implant success. Conscious care of the patient at home, regular professional cleaning and examinations are the main elements for the sustainability of the dental implant. Each patient is different and success is based on diagnosis and planning, medical history and other factors.

I smoke, is the implant a suitable treatment for me?

Smoking can increase the failure rate of implants and the likelihood of problems such as gum retraction, bone loss, or infection over time. We recommend that you quit smoking.


What is a laminate coating?

Lamina coating is a nail-shaped thin porcelain that is made for smile aesthetics by covering the front surface of your tooth. If there are no health problems with your teeth and you are not satisfied with the color, shape and height of your teeth, lamina veneers will allow you to have an aesthetic smile.

What should be the design for a beautiful smile?

Smile aesthetics is the method used for appropriate smile aesthetics that can be applied to an individual with many editing options by evaluating the position of the teeth in the mouth, their height, the harmony of the teeth with each other, the connection of the teeth with other structures such as gums, lips. There are many options in smile aesthetics depending on your situation. At the beginning of them there are lamina-coatings, which have a leaf shape.

Each tooth has a posture, angle, height and color that should be unique. Over time, structural disorders occur in the mouth. In such cases, it is determined where to start treatment first.

What distinguishes smile design in Turkey from other treatments is that it does not only evaluate your teeth, it also covers all the beauties that can be seen not only while laughing, but also while standing, talking by evaluating structural conditions.
