Metal-Free Zirconium Dental Implants

Blog by Dr. Gilbert Lee | September 8th, 2010

We are pleased to announce that we are now offering metal-free zirconium crowns in place of the older gold  solution. 

The Zirconia dental crowns are made of special ceramic (Zirconium oxide, ZrO2) that is used in the spaceships because of its high resistance to fracture and heat. This ceramic dental implant gives great advantages to the patients:

Aesthetics: The white color of Zirconium substitutes the metallic appearance of  metal  dark line around the gum disappears.

Hygienic: Ceramic abutments and crowns retains less plaque and calculus than metal, therefore promoting healthier gums.
