Dental ceramics material is used to coat the teeth that require medical, functional or cosmetic rehabilitation. In 90% of the fixed restoration cases, dental ceramics is used in consequence of its highest quality physical and cosmetic characteristics as well as for its biocompatibility. Today's dental ceramics is enriched with leucite crystals that enhances the strength of this material, and with apatite crystals, the same crystals to be found in the natural tooth.
Metal ceramics is traditionally used in fixed restorations. Ceramics applied to cobalt-chromium bases has been the ideal sorption for all restoration for years and years. The essential characteristic of metal ceramics is not to contain any nickel, an element many of us are allergic to. This solution can be recommended to anyone seeking for a fixed solution when it comes to teeth restoration. Moreover, metal ceramics grants long-term and high reliability results but requires the removal of larger parts of dental tissue before application.
In dental medicine, zircon is used to build crown, bridges, implants or additions to implants and is characterized by extreme resistance. It can be used both as a base for ceramics or as the final product to substitute teeth.Despite being a metal, in dental medicine zircon is used as zirconium dioxide, characterized by a white shade. Because of its whiteness, which can be turned to other shades by pigmentation, it allows us to achieve highly cosmetic results. Another advantage of zirconium dioxide is its high compatibility with the human organism, therefore granting long-lasting results and resistance in time.. In fact, where zircon directly touches gums, with time it becomes one if dental tissues.
Also known as press or glass ceramics, this material is translucid, letting the light through just like your natural tooth's enamel does. That is why it is widely used when looking for highly-cosmetic results and the application of veneers and crowns on your frontal teeth. Made of lithium dislocate, it contains apatite crystals, a type of crystal present in your natural teeth. The main advantage of this material is the fact that it does not require the removal of larger portions of dental tissues, preserving the tooth's structure. Nonmetal ceramic is highly compatible with the human body and grands long results in time.
