One of the exciting new areas of cosmetic dental materials is the development of zirconium ceramics.Dr. Hesham has been placing the new Zeno zirconium crowns and veneers, with fabulous results.
Dr. Hesham can restore your mouth so that you can smile again with perfect confidence, knowing that no one will be able to tell you have a false tooth. It can be done with new ultra-high-strength zirconium ceramic.
Someone showed up at Dr. Hesham office with a problem - she was getting married in a few weeks and she was embarrassed to smile. In fact, she had been embarrassed to smile for her entire life. Here are two "after" photographs. Examine them carefully— the closeup face.
There are two false teeth. Can you tell which ones are false?
Do you give up? Don't feel bad. Dr. Hesham has shown this to a number of cosmetic , including a roomful of candidates for accreditation in cosmetic dentistry, and none of them could pick out the false tooth, or actually, the two false teeth.
Here are the "before" photographs:
In the place of her normal adult canine teeth she had baby teeth. They were dark and too small, and they tipped inward, making them appear even darker than they were.
Comparing Zirconium crown with porcelain fused to metal crowns(PFM):
A zirconium crown is more expensive because it is has advantages compared to PFM crowns.
- Zirconium has a long standing reputation for quality, durability and beauty in dental ceramics
- In case of zirconium less amount of tooth grinding is required
- Zirconium needs no metal framework making it biocompatible eliminating the risk of an allergic reaction which is always a risk in case of PFM
- Zirconium has excellent translucency imitating the natural beauty of teeth. PFMs are not quite as natural looking and it can happen after years of use that a thin gray margin appears by the gum line of the PFM crown
