In Turkey-Istanbul Zirconium Dental Crowns

Dental veneer treatment is a known treatment all over the world. However, Istanbul zirconium dental crowns are very famous in Turkey and abroad. For this reason, the number of foreigners who prefer Turkey for dental crown treatment is quite high.

What is Zirconium Coating?

Today, many dental veneer methods have been developed. Zirconium coating is a new generation coating method. It is used for its beautiful appearance in the treatment of worn, broken, discolored or crooked teeth. Since it is the closest material to the tooth structure, zirconium is generally preferred in veneers.

Zirconia Coating Types

  • Among the coating processes, there are 4 types of zirconia coatings;
  • Zirconium smile design
  • Zirconium implant overlay
  • All on 4 system application on zirconium implant
  • Porcelain laminate eveneer coating
  • Composite laminate eveneer coating

Porcelain Veneer Zirconia Crowns

In this dental veneer method, porcelain is coated on the zirconium infrastructure. Porcelain veneered zirconia crowns are among the most preferred veneers.

Monolithic Zirconia Crowns

One of the zirconium coating types is monolithic zirconium. Monolithic zirconia crowns are applied in blocks. In other words, a monolithic coating method is followed. In this method, porcelain veneer is not applied on the zirconium. This crown, which is in a single layer, is colored and turned into a natural-looking tooth. The negativities caused by the two-layer system are solved with the monolithic application.

Multilayer Zirconia Crowns

Another type of zirconia coating is multi-layered zirconia. Multi-layered zirconia crowns are brighter and translucent. For this reason, it is especially preferred for anterior teeth.

How is Zirconium Coating Applied?

If the person who will have a dental veneer has decided on a zirconium crown, the application can be started as soon as possible. Zirconium coating is applied painlessly and quickly. The application steps are as follows;

  • First of all, if there are decayed teeth or abscesses, they are treated.
  • If there is no such problem or treatment is applied, local anesthesia is performed before the procedure.
  • The tooth shaving process starts and the teeth are reduced.
  • When the teeth and gums are suitable for veneer, measurements are taken.
  • A temporary coating is applied to the patient until the permanent coating is applied.
  • The compatibility of the infrastructure prepared in the laboratory environment with the gingiva is examined.
  • The color of the teeth is decided by rehearsals.
  • If all is well and no problem has occurred, the veneers are adhered.

What are the Differences Between Dental Veneers and Zirconium?

When it comes to dental veneers, many methods can come to mind. Metal-based, porcelain and zirconium coatings are among them. Among them, the most preferred and recommended is zirconium. So what are the differences between other dental veneers and zirconium? When you learn these, you will understand why zirconium is preferred. Here are these differences;

  • It does not cause allergic situations caused by metal coating. Since it is biologically compatible, it does not show any toxic reaction.
  • It transmits light because it is translucent, not opaque like porcelain. In this way, it preserves the natural appearance of the tooth. The most undesirable situation in dental veneers is the appearance of artificial teeth.
  • Unlike other veneers, natural teeth are much less interfered with. Less thinning and filing is done by preserving the tooth roots.
  • It is compatible with gingiva and tooth surface. It never hurts and adapts easily.
  • Since the porcelain veneer is more sensitive, many details may not be given in the modeling. But zirconium is quite strong. In this way, it is shaped with fine tooth details.
  • Maintains durability for a long time.
  • Zirconium coating does not cause the grayness that the metal gives to the gingiva. The gum remains in its natural appearance.
  • Porcelain dental veneer does not fully fit the tongue and there may be a gap in between. This, in turn, can cause food residues to accumulate in those cavities and cause natural tooth decay. It makes a serious odor in the mouth on the floor. However, there is no such problem in zirconium coating.
  • While metals cause gingival recession over time, zirconium preserves gingival naturalness and health.
  • The dental ceramic, on which the porcelain veneer is made, has a very fragile structure. Therefore, metal bridges are used. But there is no need for such a thing in zirconium. Because it is very strong on its own.
  • Zirconium veneer can be easily applied to both anterior and posterior teeth.
  • If it is done well and correctly and thanks to biocompatibility, it maintains its durability for many years.

In short, zirconium coating is more advantageous than other coatings in terms of both health and aesthetics.

What are the Advantages of Zirconium?

The advantages of zirconium, which is recommended more than other coatings, can be materialized as follows.

  • The most durable of dental crowns is zirconium.
  • Thanks to its biological compatibility, it adapts to the gums immediately. Does not cause allergies.
  • It is very similar to a natural tooth thanks to its light-transmitting structure.
  • It is the closest coating to the tooth in terms of both color and functionality.
  • It provides a very natural aesthetic.
  • It is resistant to wear and tear.
  • It can be bleached if it is not well looked after and discolored.
  • It tolerates biting and chewing force well.
  • It has a very low conductivity. Therefore, it is not sensitive to heat and cold.
  • Since it does not contain metal, it does not cause allergies.
  • It is not easily stained. It is not affected by substances that stain teeth such as cigarettes and coffee.
  • It does not cause bad breath or taste change in the mouth.
  • It does not need any special care. It is sufficient to apply the routines for natural teeth.
  • Since zirconium teeth are slippery and smooth, they do not cause plaque formation.
  • It will last for many years if it is carefully maintained.

What is the Treatment Process in Zirconium?

Zirconium dental veneer is completed in 3-5 sessions depending on the situation. This period means an average of 10 days a week. However, the sessions can be increased according to the patient's wishes. Conditions that require pre-coating treatment will also prolong the process. The treatment process in zirconium works as follows;

  • If there is a condition that requires treatment in the first session, it is treated.
  • If there is no need, the teeth are thinned and the measurement is taken.
  • Temporary coatings are adhered.
  • In the next sessions, the compatibility and color options of the coating are tested by rehearsing.
  • If there are situations that the patient is not satisfied with, they are corrected.
  • In the last session, controls are made and veneers are adhered.

At the end of the process, the patient can immediately return to his normal life and eating routine.

Does Zirconium Appear Aesthetic?

Thanks to its compatibility with the natural structure of the tooth, zirconium looks very aesthetic. Just like a natural tooth, it is translucent, so it transmits light. And this does not provide an artificial appearance. In addition, since it is modeled with special devices, it even reflects the fine details on the teeth. Since there is no metal in the zirconium coating, it does not cause discoloration on the gums. Healthy gingival appearance continues. Since zirconium is slippery, it prevents tartar formation.

Zirconium Coating Prices in Turkey

Another curious issue is the coating prices. Zirconium veneer prices, of course, vary according to the treatment performed. How many teeth will be applied, how the material will be used and whether an additional treatment will be required determines the price. Therefore, it would not be correct to give a precise price information.You can learn from the specialist you are treating. However, if the quality of the service provided and the coating made throughout the world are compared, it can be said that the pricing is quite reasonable. Because, as in many treatments, Turkey is also a preferred country for zirconium dental veneer treatment. Many people from abroad come to our country to have dental veneers due to both quality service and affordable price. Transport and accommodation service packages are also available for patients from other countries.
