Porcelain applications which reached the peak of aesthetics with nonmetallic tissue-compatible applications that are as solid as a diamond, as beautiful as a pearl, also push the limits of durability with zirconium now. Zirconium is a durable material obtained by compressing under eight tons of pressure and by baking the crystals consisting of white metals at 1500 °C.
In this system, zirconium is used as a substructure material instead of metal. Studies have shown that the highest performance ever achieved was recorded in aesthetics, durability, histocompatibility and naturality which are the basic requirements of dentistry. It is a method which was created completely as a result of the combination of computer-aided technology and hand-craft. Tooth preparations(cutting) prepared in the clinic are formed with special methods in the laboratory and read by 3d scanning system with the help of a special device. This information is transferred to the shaping chamber of the device and processed by crown or bridge computer. Thus, zirconium oxide substructure is formed. This substructure is coated with a special porcelain. Thus, translucent (with neon effect), very durable, aesthetic, natural-looking crowns and bridges are obtained. The biggest advantage of the system is that porcelains are easily used in bridges with the its high durability.
They are treatments perfomed with laminated, in other words leaf style, very thin porcelains by using special adhesive techniques on the teeth surfaces with small abrasions on only the front side of teeth both without any reduction procedure and with aesthetic and functional reasons.
Its advantages are as follows;
In short, laminate veneers are among the indispensable elements of aesthetic dentistry.
