Woman and Man Smiling With Dental Implants

Metal Free Dental Implants

Cosmetic Missing Tooth Replacement

Zirconia Metal Free Implants

Your smile doesn’t just define your appearance; it influences your confidence and quality of life as well. When missing teeth force you to hide your smile and avoid your favorite foods, it’s time to search for a lasting solution.

The team at Semtner Dental now offers innovative metal free dental implants using zirconia. If you’ve been eager to reconstruct your mouth with dental implants but needed a metal implant alternative to titanium metal, zirconia is the answer.

What Are Zirconia Dental Implants?

Zirconia is a ceramic material that has become very popular as an alternative to titanium in dental restoration procedures.

Titanium has been considered the “gold standard” in dental implant technology for years, but many patients with metal allergies or aesthetic concerns need a metal free alternative.

Zirconia is a perfect choice thanks to its durability and bio-compatibility. This strong porcelain can be used to make natural, attractive, long-lasting crowns and implants.

Replace Missing Teeth With Metal Free Dental Implants

Here at Semtner Dental, Drs. Rob and Mona Semtner are proud to offer Roanoke metal free implants for patients seeking a holistic alternative to traditional titanium implants.

When you choose ceramic dental implants you can restore your naturally beautiful smile and trust that it will last a lifetime. Zirconia implants provide proven strength and restorative flexibility using innovative materials and precise manufacturing.

What are the Benefits of Metal Free Implants?

You deserve a missing tooth option that quickly restores the function of your mouth without compromising on the appearance of your smile. Cosmetic implants engineered from zirconia deliver unique benefits that other implants cannot.

Improved Aesthetics:
White porcelain material creates a natural soft-tissue appearance. Metal implants can leave the gums looking gray if you have thin/nearly transparent gums or if gum recession is an issue.

Acceptability & Durability:
Zirconia implant screws are precisely designed to attach to soft gum tissue without triggering widespread inflammation. The two-piece ceramic implant design is highly effective; it doesn’t require a third abutment piece or cement connections. Research suggests Zirconia may encourage blood circulation around areas with implants.

Hypoallergenic:
If metal allergies are of concern, zirconia is hypoallergenic - allergies are not an issue.

Overall, this metal implant alternative offers the ultimate peace of mind as you smile, talk, and chew.

What Do Ceramic Dental Implants Cost?

Dental implants of all types are an investment in your well being. Zirconia metal free implants are comparable in price to traditional titanium implants. The team at Semtner Dental accepts dental insurance and offers flexible dental financing to help you get the comprehensive oral restorations you need.

Frequently Asked Dental Implant Questions:

Are Zirconia implants more expensive than titanium?

The expense of Zirconia implants is comparable to titanium implants.

Are Zirconia implants more likely to crack with adjustments?

Zirconia implants are unlikely to crack. They are made with two core pieces: the zirconia screw and the crown. The screw itself remains fused with your jawbone and protected from any sort of damage. The crown, on the other hand, may experience wear and tear as it hits other teeth when you chew and talk. This may cause accidental breaking just like any other tooth in the mouth.

Are there any additional health benefits to Zirconia as opposed to Titanium?

Benefits that are possible from zirconia are microcirculatory dynamics that help the implant site heal more rapidly. Zirconia implants also have a lower affinity for plaque build up, so you enjoy an added degree of protection from decay and gum disease.
