Zirconium Veneers

Zirconium coating is a type of alloy that is widely used in today’s technology and is used instead of classical bridges and prostheses.
There may be some aesthetic disorders due to conditions such as distortion and deformity of the tooth. In cases where classical whitening methods do not produce results, zirconium tooth coating can be preferred. After the application, the desired smile aesthetic can be achieved.

The Application of Zirconium at Klinik+1

Thanks to its light transmittance, the alloy of zirconium looks like a natural tooth. In healthy teeth, the light completely passes through the enamel part. In the classical porcelain veneer, due to metal used in this application, there may be an opaque appearance on the teeth. It causes the teeth to look artificial and pale. With the application of zirconium veneer, this situation is prevented.

The application of zirconium veneer is %100 compatible with the gums. Metal supported prostheses included with metal materials causes bruising on the gums. With this procedure, conditions such as bruising and receding of the gums can be prevented.

Zirconium alloy does not contain metal material, so it does not cause allergic reactions in any way. Also, as there is no metal in the alloy, it does not cause bad smell in the mouth.

Zirconium veneer has a slippery and smooth surface. Therefore, no plaque accumulation is can be seen on it. It is not affected by the consumption of tea, cigarettes and coffee. Zirconium keeps its color always as it is applied.

Care of The Zirconium Veneer

Dental care is carried out in its normal course after application of zirconium veneer. In our daily lives, it is essential to brush your teeth twice a day. This principle continued after the process of zirconium veneer. In addition to this, regular dental checkups every 6 months after the application can prevent the problems that may occur.

Zirconium veneer can be used for many years if dentist check-ups are made regularly. Over time, wear or some changes can be seen on tooth structure, as they are living tissues. With this process, teeth do not change.

Zirconium veneers can be removed at any time. Since the veneers are cut and removed from the tooth part, there is no pain or ache.

How is Zirconium Veneer Application Made?

In the zirconium veneer application, like any other metal supported veneers, the tooth is reduced. After the tooth is cut with local anesthesia, the measurement of the veneer is taken. In the laboratory room, a zirconium veneer made by zirconium alloy is prepared. The structure and color of this alloy are suitable for the tooth. In the final step, the veneer is adhered to the tooth, with the help of adhesive resins. The tooth can be used as your own natural tooth.

Since the local anesthesia is applied during the cutting phase of the tooth, the patient does not feel any pain. After the process, a temporary veneer is applied to tooth and the cold-hot sensitivity of the tooth is reduced. Rarely, tingling can be seen in some patients.

The application of zirconium veneer generally results in 1 week for the patients who do not have any gum problems. A few rehearsals can be made, depending on whether the application is permeated by the patient and the physician.

This application should be done after the age of 18 – 20 period, as the development process of people continues. Before this age period, some problems may occur in the application by zirconium veneer, as the chin is in a period of continuous growth.

Is There Any Disadvantage of Zirconium Veneer?

If zirconium veneer is applied to the side of the edentulous spaces, there may be a possibility of breakage over time. For this reason, it is recommended to apply the application to an area that will be supported by the lateral teeth.

In addition, the application is not recommended to gingival patients. Firstly, gum treatment of the patient should be done and then zirconium application should be started. The application should not be rushed, when the gums become healthy, then the application should be started.
