I am proud to be one of the few dentists in Canada who offer both Ceramic and Titanium implants!
What are ceramic implants and why haven’t you heard of them before?
Ceramic implants are made from zirconium oxide which is a ceramic that is already used in dentistry in a lot of the crowns and bridges we see. Zirconium oxide is lightweight, strong, and its white colour makes it ideal as a tooth replacement option.
Ceramic Implants have many advantages over other dental implant materials:
Bio-compatible: Metal-free so you don’t have to worry about any allergies. The body loves Zirconia oxide!
Gums love Zirconium oxide: The tissue response we see with ceramic implants mimic a natural tooth!
No metal or Grey Lines: Highly aesthetic even if the gum recedes, it only reveals more of the white tooth-like colour underneath
Extremely Strong – strength similar and in some cases stronger than other dental implant materials
More hygienic than metal – that means it’s easier to clean!
Get your tooth faster: Ceramic implants are designed for immediate placement after removing a tooth so there’s no need for multiple appointments and longer recovery time
My philosophy is to offer my patients the latest and greatest that is out there. I always offer both options of dental implant materials and allow my patients to decide.
