Esthetic Implants/Zirconia Abutments

We offer a wide range of esthetic abutments while focusing on convenience and simplicity for cemented restorations. All you have to do is undergo a simple procedure that will enable the abutments to adjust easily to the restored teeth. 

There are various methods for restoration, and we’re adept at each. Broadly, you can avail of either a direct or an angulated abutment. That said, Zirconia abutments are of a superior kind because they have improved strength and are bio-compatible. 

Leveraging the longevity, stability, durability, and efficiency of titanium-titanium correspondence, combined with the esthetic advantage of zirconia, abutments are a great investment indeed. 

A wide-range of esthetically pleasing materials are available. Traditionally, implant abutments were only made of metal and could be either custom-made or prefabricated. Presently, however, there’s a rising demand for ceramic-based zirconium abutments.

While a single tooth implant ensures that the adjacent tooth remains intact, zirconium abutments are especially effective when a gum line location is at stake. Also, these abutments eliminate the need, and the time taken, to conceal dark metal rings of conventional implants. 

The Process

First, we design an abutment angle (up to 30 degrees) to recreate the shape and form of the natural tooth. While abutments are made of both titanium and zirconia, the latter, being metal-free, is highly preferable. 

After testing the abutment thoroughly, we place it in the patient’s dental cavity followed by a total wax-up, which is a handy tool to analyze the contour, room available and so on.

Why Zirconia?

Over time, dentistry has increasingly focused on esthetic parameters in defining success or failure. For dental products in general, the material plays a major role. However, for zirconia, being ceramic-based isn't the single determinant for success. Other factors, such as appropriate design, and efficient handling of materials, among others, are becoming increasingly crucial.

Moreover, it paves the way for esthetic outcomes previously not deemed possible with metal alloys. In this regard, they have mechanical and biological qualities superior to those of the universally used titanium abutments. Owing to their versatility, and the underlying CAD/CAM technology and Zirconia implants are well suited to patients with thin gingival tissue.

Although zirconia abutments’ resistance to fractures isn't that great, greater flexion strength, a perfect adjustment in the interface with dental implants, excellent biocompatibility with optimal esthetic and mechanical properties make zirconia abutments an ideal alternative for convenient restoration of unitary implant rehabilitation in the anterior region.
