Metal-Free Implants

The beauty of choice

Traditionally, Titanium has been the material of choice when it comes to dental implants, due to its strength and biocompatibility. However, with the increased practice of holistic treatments and the preference for metal-free products, the field of implantology had to look for alternative materials and methods.

 

Innovation in Aesthetics

Metal-free implants are made of Zirconia, a ceramic material, and white in colour. Zirconia is the latest generation of aesthetic products in Dentistry and is also used to produce crowns and other types of restorations. Zirconia implants are relatively new, and we’re proud to lead the way by offering this innovative product to our patients here on the Gold Coast. It is a highly intricate material to use, so it requires experienced and skilled professionals to handle it successfully.

Apart from being metal-free, Zirconia implants are particularly good for highly aesthetic areas such as front teeth, where often the bone wall is thin, and the gums are quite translucent; this can create challenges when using Titanium, due to its dark colour, which can often show through, reducing the final aesthetic appearance.

Metal-Free, worry-free

At Proud Smile, we chose to work with the world-renowned Nobel Biocare to provide our Zirconia implants, because when it comes to innovation, it’s essential to have the backup of a well-respected brand that will deliver the best possible outcome for our patients. For our Zirconia implants, and all of our treatment options, we never settle for basic, we offer the same unparalleled comfort and convenience that we have successfully established with our Titanium implants, which are:

Computer-Guided Surgery

Similarly to Titanium implants, we use state-of-the-art computer software and 3D x-rays to plan the position and placement of Zirconia implants with nearly 100% precision, making surgery much more comfortable, and increases recovery speed.

Unique cement-free and two-piece implants

Most Zirconia implants are made of one piece, from implant to crown, and this requires cement for their placement, potentially leading to problems such as inflammation and difficulty when dealing with complications. Our Nobel Biocare metal-free implants, are completely cement-free, as they are entirely screw driven, the same as their Titanium equivalent.

Fast Digital Dentistry

No messy rubber moulds are required for the prosthetics, and implant crowns are fabricated in a matter of days, not weeks.

Extended Warranty

Our Zirconia implants are warranted for a period of 10 years, with a 5-year warranty for the prosthetics. Implant loss from infection or gum disease is excluded.

Are Zirconia implants safe?

Yes, absolutely, and that is also the case for Titanium. Zirconia implants are quite inert and well accepted by gums and bones. The surface of these implants receives a special coating during manufacture, this is to make sure and encourage integration with the bone. Zirconia implants have been clinically tested and they are TGA approved for safe use in Australia.
