Adjusting to tooth loss can be difficult as it can impact what you eat, how you look, and how you live. This is where dental implants come in. Replacing teeth with implants can restore your smile’s functionality and appearance. Zirconia implants from Nashville Restorative Dentistry in Franklin, Tennessee, are metal-free, offering an alternative to traditional titanium implants for replacing lost teeth. Zirconia tooth-colored ceramic implants can serve as both a restorative and cosmetic tooth replacement treatment.
Both titanium and zirconia implants are effective in replacing missing teeth. Both can serve as a tooth ‘root’ to provide a secure, stable foundation for replacement teeth. Both can restore your smile’s health, appearance, and function so you can enjoy life to the full again.
Zirconia implants, however, can complete your smile more naturally. Zirconia implants are 100% metal-free. Their ceramic composition closely resembles the color of your natural teeth. When inserted into your jaw, the implant osseointegrates completely into your jaw bone while maintaining a high degree of biocompatibility.
Patients with thin gum tissue risk exposing coloration from the implant under the tissue when they smile. Titanium implants can make your gums or crown appear grayish due to their metal composition, detracting from your smile’s appearance. As zirconia implants are tooth-colored in appearance, the base can pass as part of your natural tooth when you smile.
At Nashville Restorative Dentistry, you benefit from the experience and expertise of Drs. Jones and Estes, who are skilled zirconia implant dentists.
Zirconia implants look more natural due to their metal-free ceramic composition. After evaluating your condition, Drs. Jones and Estes can determine if zirconia implants are the best choice for replacing your lost tooth or teeth.
