Today, zirconium dioxide all-porcelain teeth have been loved by thousands of people. This high-quality ceramic material will surely become a trend in cosmetic dental restoration in the future. Below, let’s take a look at zirconium dioxide all-porcelain teeth.
Zirconium dioxide all-porcelain teeth are a high-tech cosmetic dental restoration method developed only in recent years. They are produced through computer-aided design, laser scanning, and computer program-controlled grinding.
Medical zirconia has been cleaned and processed. The small amount of alpha ray residue retained in the zirconium penetrates very little, only 60 microns. The density and strength of zirconium dioxide all-porcelain teeth are quite high. The strength is 1.5 times higher than that of the second generation of EMPRESS and more than 60% higher than INCERAM zirconia. Coupled with its unique rupture resistance and strong curing performance after rupture, it can make all-porcelain bridges of more than 6 units, solving the problem that all porcelain systems cannot be long bridges.
Zirconium dioxide all-porcelain teeth are extremely natural in color, and the edge of the crown is not obvious, especially for patients who have high aesthetic requirements and value their natural color. Zirconium dioxide all-porcelain teeth make the prosthesis perfectly integrated with healthy teeth, making it difficult to distinguish them.
DID YOU KNOW? If the dentures embedded in your mouth are all-porcelain crowns containing metal, they will be affected or even removed when you need a cranial x-ray, CT, or MRI. Non-metallic zirconia does not block X-rays in any way. As long as zirconium dioxide all-porcelain teeth are inserted, there is no need to remove the dentures for future cranial x-rays, CT, or MRI tests, saving a lot of trouble.
Zirconium dioxide is an excellent high-tech biomaterial. It has good biocompatibility and is superior to various metal alloys, including gold. Zirconium dioxide is not irritating to the gums and has no allergic reactions. It is suitable for use in the oral cavity, avoiding adverse effects such as allergies, irritation, and corrosion caused by metals in the mouth.
Compared with other all-porcelain restoration materials, zirconium dioxide all-porcelain dental materials have an advantage in strength that allows doctors to achieve extremely high strength without having to remove the patient’s real teeth too much.
Zirconium dioxide all-porcelain teeth are of extremely high quality. It is said that their high quality is perfect not only because of the high cost of materials and equipment, but also because they use today’s most advanced computer-aided design, laser scanning, and computer program-controlled grinding and production.
Zirconium Dioxide All Porcelain Teeth PK Metal All Porcelain Teeth
1. All-metal porcelain teeth
A metallic all-porcelain crown is accepted by most patients because of its good strength, but it has fatal drawbacks. Metal all-porcelain teeth have a metal base that is easily oxidized to form gray oxide, scattered and deposited on the edge of the gums, causing the gums to turn gray and affect aesthetics. At the same time, they have a strong irritating effect on the gums. Some patients also experience symptoms such as swollen gums, bleeding, allergies, etc., which are difficult to meet clinical requirements.
Due to the presence of a metal base crown, the color of all-porcelain crown must be covered with colored porcelain, so that the all-porcelain crown can block light to a certain extent, which seriously affects the aesthetics of the teeth.
2. Zirconium dioxide with all-porcelain teeth
At present, there are many types of all-porcelain dental materials, such as garnet, lithium-based porcelain, alumina, zirconia, etc., with different production methods, such as penetrating ceramics, hot die casting ceramics, porcelain deposition, computer-aided design and computer-aided production, but in comparison, among all porcelain restoration materials, zirconia all-porcelain has the highest bending strength, so it is accepted by more and more patients and doctors and is popular around the world.
Zirconium dioxide all-porcelain crowns have their own unique advantages. Since there is no metal bottom crown, the restoration has certain permeability and aesthetics, so it provides a guarantee for aesthetic restoration. At the same time, it has no irritating effect on the gums, and patients do not experience symptoms such as swollen gums, bleeding, allergies, etc., which perfectly meets clinical requirements, so it is called the “new favorite” among all-porcelain teeth.
Zirconium dioxide all-porcelain crowns have unique advantages that metallic all-porcelain teeth do not have:
1. Excellent mechanical properties.
It has a bending strength of more than 900 MPa, so it can also be used to repair back teeth and all-porcelain bridges of 6 units or more.
2. Good biocompatibility.
According to the latest CRAI clinical evaluation report of the American Clinical Research Association, the Zirconia all-porcelain crown itself has no metal, and its zirconia all-porcelain crown repair can eliminate metal allergies, and has good biocompatibility, so it is superior in biocompatibility to various metal alloys, including gold materials.
3. Zirconium dioxide does not block X-rays in any way.
After the zirconium dioxide, all-porcelain teeth are inserted, there is no need to remove the dentures if cranial x-rays, CT, and MRI tests are required later because zirconium dioxide all-porcelain teeth do not block X-rays in any way, so they save a lot of trouble.
4. Non-metallic materials are safer
Zirconium dioxide is currently the only mineral found in nature as oblique zircon. It contains no metal components, and is safer after medical zirconia cleaning processing.
5. Ultra-high strength and density
Zirconium dioxide is widely used, especially in high-precision instruments, such as aviation equipment, due to its high strength and density. Among them, the unique rupture resistance and strong curability after rupture can be made into all-porcelain bridges of 6 units or more, thus solving the problem that all porcelain systems cannot be long bridges, so they are loved by doctors and patients.
6. Perfect color and gloss
Since the base crown color of structural ceramics is white, the neck does not darken and darken for a period of time after the all-porcelain teeth are inserted, thus solving the extremely difficult problem of all-metal porcelain crowns to solve.
7. Healthy biomaterials
Zirconium dioxide is an excellent high-tech biomaterial with excellent biocompatibility, no irritation to the gums, no allergic reactions, and is ideal for the oral cavity.
8. High-tech quality
Zirconium dioxide all-porcelain teeth use the most advanced computer-aided design and laser scanning in the world today and are finally ground-controlled by computer-aided programs, showing noble and luxurious quality.
