What is Zirconium Crown-Bridge?

Zirconium is a white alloy with a more natural-looking appearance, which is preferred to classical porcelain applied on metal. Zirconium bridges are mostly is preferred in cases where aesthetic expectations are high, in the treatment of discolored teeth with impaired structures, in cases where orthodontic treatment is not preferred, in cases where the appearance of crooked or turned teeth are desired to be corrected, in cases of teeth whose aesthetics has been impaired with filling, in the treatment of broken or cracked teeth or teeth that need restoration due to their major visual impairments caused by a trauma, in cases where prostheses need to be applied on implants and in cases requiring smile aesthetics. Since their light transmittance is much higher than metal-supported porcelain teeth, zirconium teeth look more natural and offer a more aesthetic appearance.


Zirconium is a material compatible with the gingiva and soft tissue. The dark discoloration in areas close to the gingiva, which is observed in cases where metal-supported porcelain has been applied, is not observed in zirconium-supported porcelain teeth. In addition, patients allergic to metal can easily prefer zirconium. It causes no allergic condition.

The care method of zirconium supported porcelain teeth is the same as that of natural teeth. When you brush your teeth and gums, it will be adequate to have routine dental check-ups every 6 months. With proper daily oral hygiene, zirconium-supported porcelain teeth can be used for many years.

How is Zirconium-Supported Porcelain Applied?

As with the normal porcelain treatment procedure, the teeth are abraded within the required limits. For the gums to reach a healthy state, it is necessary to wait for a certain period of time after the abrasion. Measurements are taken in the mouth with special methods. The porcelain and its zirconium infrastructure in the color preferred by the patient are prepared in the laboratory and they are tried-on before placement. At the final stage, the zirconium bridge is attached to the teeth with a temporary adhesive. The patient who obtains an appearance that is the nearest to his or her own natural appearance returns to his or her normal life on the same day. No pain is felt during the procedure. In the procedure performed under local anesthesia, the sensitivity of the teeth is prevented with temporary prostheses, which are applied to the teeth after they are sculpted. Zirconium-supported porcelain prostheses can be applied to any patient who has completed his or her jaw development and has permanent teeth.
