Zirconia is naturally white in color, so there’s no gray line by the gums.
METAL-FREE CERAMIC IMPLANTS
Are you looking for safe alternative to metal dental implants?
A dental implant is a device that is placed in the bone to replace a missing tooth. The bone then grows around the implant, “locking” it in to secure it in a process called osseointegration. Once the implant is firm, it can be restored with a crown, bridge, or used to snap in a denture.
Most modern dental implants are made of either titanium (metal) or a bioceramic material. The doctors at Integrative Dental Solutions offer bioceramic dental implants, a non-metal alternative that acts and looks just like a natural, healthy tooth. Our bioceramic implants are made of zirconia, which has been proven to be both high-strength and friendly to the bone and gum tissues. Osseointegration of a zirconia implant is comparable to that of a titanium implant, but without the metal components.

The Consequences of Missing Teeth
Missing teeth can significantly impact your quality of life. It can make eating and chewing more difficult, and cause a shifting of teeth that can affect your bite. It can also lead to bone loss and resorption that can make your face sag or droop. Depending on the location of the missing tooth, you may also feel self-conscious about you’re appearance.
A State-of-the-Art, Natural Solution
For the majority of healthy individuals, dental implants are the ideal solution for missing teeth. A ceramic implant closely mimics a natural tooth, preserving the bone tissue and allowing you to talk, chew, swallow, brush and floss as you normally would. Additionally, unlike a dental bridge, an implant doesn’t require any cutting of adjacent teeth, so you can preserve healthy teeth.
Over the past decade, zirconia has become the material of choice for healthy tooth replacement. Zirconia dental implants provide patients with a safe, high-performance, biocompatible, aesthetically-pleasing alternative to traditional metal titanium implants. There is also less plaque and bacteria build-up around zirconia than other materials, allowing for a healthier soft tissue response and less inflammation. The naturally white color of zirconia effortlessly integrates with existing teeth to enhance your smile.
