Crowns (coatings) and bridges made by applying porcelain to zirconium are known under the short name CERCON, which is a combination of the words ceramic and zirconium. With a resistance of 900 MPa, the system ushered in a brand new era in dentistry by covering the highest physical values, light transmission characteristics, tissue compatibility and many different indications. The success of the material has proven itself in medicine and industry. As a result of the research started in 1998, clinical applications have been started worldwide since the beginning of 2002. With this new application, the aesthetic concerns associated with metal-ceramic and all-ceramic restorations in patients are definitely eliminated..
- Less sensitivity to heat and cold.
- Does not cause allergies (very well tolerated).
- The color of the zirconium coating is not matt (not opaque).
- Perfect harmony with the gums.
- Hygienic (less retention of microorganisms on the surface).
- Zirconium coatings are fully compatible with the body and oral tissues.
Zirconium crowns are used for single-tooth crowns, bridges and molar defects. Zirconium crowns are also used for aesthetic bridge work on implants.
A wax model of your teeth is created on the model that was created by measuring your teeth. A computerized device prepares the infrastructure of your teeth by grinding the zirconia block according to the information it receives from this model. At the end of the work, the corresponding color ceramic is applied to the structures created by abrasion. With the new high-tech zirconium oxide, strong and aesthetic restorations can now be successfully carried out without metal.Advantages of zirconium coating in terms doctors and patients
The application time is shortened by the zirconium coating. If desired, the patient can be given a new smile in just one day. The aesthetic quality of the tooth is very high, its light transmission and posture are like natural teeth. Since the porcelain blocks used are porcelain blocks previously manufactured under factory conditions, the physical properties of the material have been minimized, saving the doctor time as the intermediate stages are reduced.
Zirconium has been used for various purposes in different parts of the body, especially for hip joint prostheses, and it has been found to have no side effects, harm, and allergy. Zirconium is an element resistant to high temperatures, shock and light, no heat and Transmits electricity and allows light to pass through. In addition, zirconium is a healthy material that does not cause bad taste in the mouth, gum problems, or bad breath.
With the zirconium coating, there is no hot-cold sensitivity because zirconium oxide has a heat-insulating property.
Zirconium oxide does not cause allergies as it is a tissue-compatible material.
During the researches, it was found that the zirconium coating is in perfect harmony with the gums. Of course, it cannot stop the gum recession that naturally develops with age. Since the prepared veneers are very compatible with teeth and gums, it develops no gum recession due to gingivitis.
