Zirconia Dental Implants

Ceramic Zirconia dental implants approved by the FDA since 2011 and European approved since 2004, are biocompatible and promote osseointegration: enabling bone to grow around the implant material. Ceramic implants are becoming increasingly popular with patients who expect holistic, safe, and long-lasting dental implants to replace their missing or infected teeth. Choosing metal-free zirconia dental implants can be a significant step towards restoring your oral health, smile, and confidence with no risk of metal-related allergies.

Zirconia And Zirconia Dental Implants

As a material, zirconia, a white powdered ceramic material, is often used to produce dental frameworks such as crowns and bridges, and unlike typical ceramics that can be a bit brittle, zirconia is highly resistant to long-term wear and is more flexible compared to technical ceramics. Zirconia, or zirconia dioxide, is the hardest material in use in dentistry. Zirconia dental implants look like your natural teeth.

How Are Zirconia Dental Implants Beneficial To You?

A dental implant made with zirconia can be better in some significant ways compared to the traditional titanium implants. As a material, zirconia or zirconia oxide is a metal-free chemical compound, and this property allows it to function similar to ceramic. Implants made from zirconia, therefore, are more durable than titanium dental implants.

Moreover, the biocompatible feature of zirconia makes zirconia dental implants ideal for dental patients who are allergic or sensitive to metal. The recommended use of zirconia implants, of being safe and effective, is supported by more than 20 years of research and industry use.

Protective Qualities of Zirconia Implants

Compared to traditional titanium implants, zirconia implants are smaller in size. However, they offer a higher level of durability when in use. Zirconia dental implants are about three times more resistant to the damaging effects of corrosion than titanium implants.

Zirconia’s sturdy nature ensures that almost all of your gum’s wall lining remains intact after implant placement: enhancing your oral health and comfort.

As far as appearance is concerned, zirconia implants look similar to your natural teeth. In comparison, titanium implants are slightly dark-colored, and one can see a gray tone due to their presence. However, zirconia dental implants, like your natural teeth, stops light passing through, with no visible gray hue. All these features, useful in creating dental crowns and bridges, make zirconia dental implants a popular choice in improving the form and function of your teeth, smile, and oral health.

So, don’t ignore your damaged, painful, or missing teeth. Please get in touch with Dr. Michael Le at Elite Dentistry by calling (512) 777-4255 and schedule your appointment.

Dr. Le and the entire staff at Elite Dentistry are fantastic. I was recently told by another dentist that I needed to have two crowns replaced with dental implants. After reading so many great reviews online (including my insurance's website), I went to see Dr. Le. After a comprehensive analysis, Dr. Le explained that we could replace my current crowns and keep my natural teeth, which is always the ultimate goal.

I just had my first consult with Dr. Michael Le. Very friendly staff. If you are cold in his office be sure ask for a blanket. It was warm, soft and comfortable. Looking forward to following my treatment plan. Thank you Elite Dentistry for accepting me as a new patient. It is nice to have a great dentist close to home.
