MONOLITHIC ZIRCONIUM

The biggest difference of monolithic zirconium from normal zirconium core materials is that it is not damaged by contact with saliva directly in the mouth environment and is more aesthetic than normal zirconium material. They can be used in one piece or on chewing surfaces where the chewing force is the highest, without the need to process the less resistant porcelain material on it.

In zirconium core materials obtained from normal zirconium blocks, porcelain should be completely processed on it and not open to the mouth environment.

– The other reason why monolithic zirconiums do not require porcelain overgrowth is that they can be aesthetically given the tooth color and form as desired and they can be easily polished so that results that are very close to tooth brightness can be obtained.

-Especially, for people who have undergone posterior area and bridge procedures, the restoration process can be done with monolithic zirconium, as well as porcelain processing on the front (visible) surfaces of the teeth in front teeth and other visible areas, and more aesthetic results can be obtained.

– Since it does not require porcelain share, it can be worked fine especially in the junction area of ​​the tooth and gum to provide a full aesthetic appearance.

– Since the light permeability is higher than normal zirconium core material, a natural dental effect can be given.

– The process is mostly based on technological production with the technique of CAD / CAM (designing on a computer and manufacturing with a computer-aided milling system). Porcelain stacking process is either absent or very little when necessary. This enables faster production as well as high quality.

In prosthetic treatment of people with tooth clenching problems, individuals with fractures in their teeth

Dental restoration procedures for people who have limited time for treatment with the advantage of fully digital work

In dental treatments that require durable coating such as implant prostheses

People with fractures and abrasion problems in the anterior teeth, especially as a result of trauma

Dental restoration of people who have difficulty in biting as a result of abrasion and who have advanced tooth sensitivity

Monolithium zirconium coating is used to treat damaged teeth as well discoloration of the gums 

Information about the monolithic zirconium coating application process are listed as follows:

  • Primarily, the finished form of the restorative procedure to be made on the teeth is planned. With this planning, in the desired cases, the three-dimensional finished model can be digitally processed before any operation is performed on the teeth, then the digital model can be removed and processed as if it was finished in the mouth, and the patient can be shown the finished form without any action. In this way, the erosion process on the teeth can be kept at a minimal level.
  • Damages in the teeth are detected and the teeth are shaped in a suitable structure at the level of need in digital modeling.
  • The measurements of the teeth are preferably taken with intraoral scanning systems (3Shape Triodent Scanner) and the measurements are sent to the laboratory. Here, by transferring to special programs in computer environment, personal closing and aesthetic planning and design are made.
  • After the design, the production is made with a 3D printer for trial purposes, and the necessary corrections are made by trial inside the mouth.
  • This design is matched with zirconium blocks after corrections, if necessary, and shaped by the scraping method in the milling system.

Monolithic zirconium is very soft and brittle when it comes out from the scraping process. It is transferred to the furnace for cooking (sintering), which takes an average of 8 hours for hardening. After this firing process, a hard and aesthetic result that can be durable up to 1200 mPa is obtained. If necessary, porcelain can be added to the aesthetic areas.

The completed job is at very ideal levels in terms of tissue adaptation and adaptation to teeth and is easily adapted to the teeth.

It is a biological material and almost no tissue allergy is seen.

A good adaptation and the monoblock of the material increases the resistance and reduces the risk of porcelain teeth breaking and chipping (small size fractures in porcelain).

The grey color appearance in the gingiva joint, which is especially seen in metal-supported porcelains and increases over time, does not exist in these materials.
