What is zirconium dental coating?
Dental coating is mostly applied as porelain coating. Dental coatings are divided into two types as metal backed and metal unbacked. Dentists have more aesthetic treatment approaches for patients, who require more aesthetic smile. These aesthetic needs bring forward more frequent usages of zirconium substructure teeth, which is a more aesthetic approach in dentistry, in their treatments. Zirconium, which is used in tooth making and is in white color, is processed in special ovens by coverting into zirconia ceramic and using instead of pure mineral state. Zirconium dental coating is from metal unbacked coatings and it provides a more natural image compared to metal backed coatings.
What are advantages of zirconium dental coating?
Zirconium dental coatings do not form a dark color in gingiva since their light transmittance is more compared to metal backed coatings and you do not encounter problems such as black color reflection from gingiva corner, which is posible to occur in metal coating porcelain teeth in the future. In addition to it, mat image, which may occur in teeth by means of light transmittance characteristic of zirconium, gets lost in zirconium dental coating and healthier, more transparent and more natural image is achieved by means of an image closest to original state of teeth. Zirconium coating is also important in terms of gingiva health as well as providing an aesthetic and natural image. Because zirconium dental coatings are more compliant with gingiva and frequency of gingiva diseases in gingiva around teeth with zirconium dental coating is lower compared to metal backed teeth coatings. Zirconium dental coating is an ideal tooth treatment, which is white color, resistant to heat and for patients with allergy against metal. Mat image gets lost by means of light transmittance of zirconium dental coating, it provides more natural and more aesthetic image. Hot cold sensitivity is not observed in people, who use zirconium dental coating. Moreover, its robustness is more compared to metal teeth and it is preferred more in front teeth due to natural image. Zirconium minimizes staining occurring due to cigarette or other reasons, does not cause foul breath, gingiv problems and taste changes in mouth.
