Zirconium veneer is a veneer method used in dental aesthetics, which is more resistant than metal porcelain and provides a more natural and aesthetic appearance thanks to its light transmission.
What is Zirconium?
Zirconium is a durable alloy found in nature. It is used in many sectors due to it's durability. It is also frequently used in dental operations, since it's compatibility to human body is high.
Reasons of being prefered of zirconium veneer
Any allergic reaction does not occur in the body because of the zirconium. Since it is a light transmitting material, it provides more natural and aesthetic appearance compared to other veneer materials.
Who can have Zirconium Veneer?
Those who have had teeth whitening treatment and could not get any results, who have broken teeth, who want to unite their seperate teeth, who want to fix their irregular teeth, who have too many tooth losses that won't be able to be filled, are suitable candidates for Zirconium Veneer.
Zirconium Veneer is not recommended for people whose oral and dental development is not completed. It is recommended that people with gingival diseases have veneer done after treatment.
Pre-operation instructions of zirconium veneer
Before the zirconium veneer, dental and oral examination is done to the patient to determine whether she/he is suitable for the veneer process. If there is a problem with the patient's teeth and gums, this problem is treated first.
Treatment process of Zirconium Veneer
The first step in the zirconium veneer treatment is the rasping and downscaling of existing teeth. While the teeth are downscaled, the patient does not feel any pain since the teeth are anesthetized with local anesthesia.
The patient rests for a while after the downscaling of the teeth. After resting, necessary measurements are taken for Zirconium veneer with dental measuring instruments. After the measurements are taken, a certain time is required for the preparation of the veneer. During this period, a temporary veneer is placed to prevent the patient from becoming toothless.
Measured teeth are modeled in computer environment. Zirconium veneer is formed by the help of computer. The forming process is followed by oven drying process. Finally, the Zirconium veneer is prepared to puting in by passing through special processes.
The treatment process is terminated by fixing the specially prepared Zirconium veneers to the teeth.
Post operation instructions of zirconium veneer
There is no special application to do after the zirconium veneer process is completed. The recommended cares for normal teeth are also go for the veneers. Consumptation of excessive heat or cold things must be avoided. Teeth should be brushed twice a day and dental floss should be used when it is necessary. The use of mouthwashes is also recommended. Paying attention to these after veneer will prolong the life of the veneer.
