Questions such as "What is zirconium tooth?" or "How is zirconium tooth done?" are some of the questions that have been sought answers to recently.

What is Zirconium Coating?

In response to the question "What is zirconium coating?", zirconium coating refers to the process of covering dental decay, discoloration or loss of color over time by grinding the teeth with a zirconium material. Although zirconium teeth are mostly applied to front teeth, they are also applied to back teeth due to their non-allergenic reactions and reliability. Zirconium coating is also a procedure that can be applied to patients complaining of crooked tooth.

How is Zirconium Coating Done?

"How is Zirconium coating done?" is one of the first questions asked by those who want to get the application done. When a decision is made to have zirconium teeth, the most suitable model for the patient's mouth structure is chosen from among the zirconium tooth models. Taking the color of the tooth of the patient to be treated into account, a selection is made from among the zirconium tooth colors.

The patient for whom the zirconium coating will be done needs to be measured in detail by the dentist. Local anesthesia is performed before zirconium coating. The teeth of the patient for the application are trimmed for zirconium coating. Temporary teeth are placed before zirconium. Zirconium tooth trial is repeatedly applied until it fits perfectly in the mouth of the patient. Then the zirconium tooth is permanently glued by the dentist.

I had surgery 2 weeks ago by Dr Yucel Sarialtin. I have been to almost every doctor in Istanbul, but this doctor is so spontaneous and gives so much attention to his patient, I immediately felt good. I've had a Tummytuck 360 Lipo and BBL! What a great result I couldn't have imagined it better! Dear people please find the right doctor!!! Because I also had the same operation in 2019, but this doctor mutilated me, and Yucel Sarialtin had to correct this again, which of course makes the operation more difficult. I recommend this doctor 100%! & of course his team also lots of kisses to Buse Bayram Aysegul who helped me through this period

Benefits of Zirconium Coating

In recent times, zirconium coating is a highly preferred method compared to porcelain teeth and metal-supported coated teeth. The advantages of zirconium teeth can be listed as follows:

  • Due to its structure that transmits light, it prevents the artificial and dull look of other coating teeth.

Although zirconium coating and laminate coating are some of the most popular methods of smile design in recent times, there are significant differences between two applications.

  • The most obvious difference between zirconium coating and laminate coating are the application methods. In zirconium tooth application, the top surface of the tooth is completely milled, while for veneer teeth, only the front surface of the tooth is milled.

  • Zirconium coating is more expensive than metal coating in terms of cost.
  • When the tooth is coated with zirconium, there is no change in mouth odor or taste, whereas metal-backed coatings can experience such negative conditions.
  • Zirconium coating is close to natural in terms of light transmittance, unfortunately metal-supported coating is not a transparent structure.
  • Zirconium coating does not cause any allergic reaction in the dental tissue, while the probability of such allergic reactions in metal coatings is high.
  • Although with metal-supported coating there is a possibility of bad appearance near the dental tissue over time, such unpleasantness is not seen in zirconium tooth application.
