Zirconium Coating


In order to get healthy and aesthetic results with zirconium coating, gum health should be reviewed in the first stage.  After the treatment of gums and healing process, the teeth would be examined aesthetically.


If the laughing line of the patient is high, the gum level is balanced appropriately. After the treatment and shaping process, approximately 1-2 mm of the teeth are cut. These teeth are measured with special impression devices and are sent to the laboratory. Based on the obtained measures, design and production is are undertaken in the digital laboratory environment.


The in-house rehearsal of the zirconium substructure is followed by the fitting of the porcelain superstructure. After final arrangements, coatings with a polished and smooth surface are adhered to the teeth.


Zirconium is a naturally-extracted white metal. In zirconium coatings, the material forming the infrastructure beneath the porcelain is zirconium dioxide. Zirconium is more resistant to stress and tension compared to classical, metal-based porcelain coatings. As it can be considered friendly to the mouth tissue, it does not cause any allergies and has become a frequently preferred material in recent years.


Zirconium gives a very natural look. For this reason, it is the preference of patients with high expectation of aesthetics. The grey discolorations around gum level observed in classical metal-based protheses will not occur in zirconium use.


Zirconium provides a more long-lasting solution due to better compatibility with the gum compared to metal-based porcelains.

Since the light permeability is similar to natural teeth, the opaque appearance formed in teeth with metal substructure does not occur in zirconium. It is possible to obtain an aesthetic-looking result that cannot be distinguished from natural teeth. Zirconium coatings can be used in single tooth coating and bridge construction as well as protheses covering implants.
