Zirconium Dental Veneers

Throughout the last decades, zirconium dental veneer in Istanbul have become one of the widespread applications in cosmetic dentistry. Among the varied alternatives, those made with zirconium are gaining in popularity. Clients willing to improve their dentition and smile do appreciate those light, discreet, and natural-looking tooth covers. To be more exact, zirconium is generally used as a complement to porcelain in dental bridges and crowns. It replaces the metallic support found in more traditional models. Although not as resistant as metal, zirconium alloys are nevertheless a quite reliable material, especially thanks to the ongoing technological development.
Speaking of alloys, some slight disambiguation might be necessary here. Roughly said, zirconium is a strong metal just like titanium. On the other hand, zirconia (or zirconium dioxide) is a white-colored crystalline oxide that contains zirconium. That’s the component veneers are made from. So in fact, the term ‘zirconia veneers‘ is more appropriate in the context of dentistry. However, because of the common zirconium content in both materials, ‘zirconium veneers‘ is also an acceptable denomination.

Advantages of Zirconium Veneers

Applications of zirconium dental veneer in Istanbul have become commonplace because of the following advantages:

Strength and durability: Some experts refer to zirconia as ‘ceramic steel’. Indeed, along with their ceramic-like look, zirconium veneers are much stronger than both natural enamel and other porcelain/ceramic veneer types. Additionally, they can resist up to a couple of decades and even more, provided that the wearer takes good care of them.

Biocompatibility: Zirconium veneers are extremely user-friendly in the sense that they come with minimal risk of allergy. Unlike veneers containing metal, they usually don’t cause any adverse reactions when encountering other chemicals in the buccal cavity.

Enhanced user comfort: With this kind of veneer, you won’t experience any unpleasant metallic taste in your mouth. Thanks to their slick surface, they won’t cause any abrasion or irritation on the surrounding teeth and tissues either. They also ensure high chewing force to your teeth, including the molars.  


What About the Contraindications?

There are not any noticeable contraindications or risks. That being said, their price is higher than many other models and thus not budget-friendly for every client profile.

Additionally, zirconium veneers may be preferable for missing front teeth as well as chewing reinforcement in posterior teeth. Indeed, other materials such as laminate veneers or ceramic crowns come with greater breakage risk. So these should rather be used for aesthetic purposes concerning the front teeth. This is due to their slight cosmetic advantage over zirconium models. 

Who Should Prefer Zirconium Veneers?

– Clients who are dissatisfied with ordinary whitening procedures and looking for a more aesthetically appealing option.

– Clients who are thinking about a comprehensive smile makeover.

– Clients affected by tooth discoloration and/or misalignment issues.
