Until today, it was not used in dental applications because of the high cost of zirconium oxide production.Thanks to a project developed by the Zurich Federal Institute of Technology , zirconium oxide has become economically viable for dentistry. Zirconium has been used in medicine since the 1960s, The reliability of the material has been proven through long-term studies.
Zirconium has been used for various purposes in various parts of the body, especially hip joint prostheses, and it has been determined that there is no side effect or harm and no allergy until now .
Zirconium is an element which resistant to high heat and shock , lightweight , adiabatic and dielectric , transparent .
It is also a healthy material that does not lead to taste disorders, gingival problems and malodor.
A wax model of your teeth is prepared on the model prepared with the measure taken from your teeth. A computer-aided device prepares the infrastructure of your teeth by chafing the zirconium oxide block in the direction of the information it receives from this model .The work is completed by placing suitable color ceramic on the chafed structures .
Now, with the new high-tech zirconium oxide, powerful and aesthetic restorations without metal can be successfully achieved.
