Metal-Free (Zirconia) Dental Implants
Zirconia (metal-free) dental implants are here! Zirconia implants have been used in Europe for years, and they are now available in the United States. Advanced Periodontics & Implant Dentistry Manhattan now offers absolute metal-free teeth replacement solutions using metal-free dental implant technology.
What are Metal-free dental implants?
Metal-free (also known as Zirconia implants or all-ceramic implants) are one of the best materials available today for dental reconstructions. Zirconia is a lightweight metal, that is incredibly strong – and resistent to bending, making it an ideal material for dental implants. Its bright-white, tooth-like color makes it all the more suitable for tooth replacement.
Zirconia has many advantages over other dental implants materials. Among the advantages of Zirconia Implants are that it’s:
- A naturally-occuring material
- Absolutely Metal-free
- Highly aesthetic, due to its white tooth-like color
- Proven to be more hygienic than metal options
- Extremely strong
- Biocompatible (does not cause allergies)
- Readily accepted and integrated by the surrounding bone, leading to successful implants, and permanent stability of teeth.
In fact, Zirconia bridges have proven to be stable even after 50 years of biting and chewing!
What do Metal-free dental implants look like?
Here are some of our metal-free restorations using all-white Zirconia implants.
Zirconia dental implant to replace a front tooth
An all-white Zirconia dental implant used to replace a front tooth can make the restoration even whiter, as no metal is used beneath the crown.
When the gums have receded around old bridges, leaving a dark edge visible around the crowns, metal-free Zirconia implants eliminate the use of metal, and therefore eliminate the dark edge, leaving a bright white, natural looking smile.
Many patients have a missing tooth, but otherwise their teeth are healthy. They may opt for metal-free dental implants which are a natural, holistic approach to replacing missing teeth.
