Zirconia dental veneers are made of safe, biocompatible materials. They have an extremely high flexural and tensile strength, and the non-porous design is resistant to chipping, cracking, and staining. The restorations have a smooth exterior, which prevents abrasion to surrounding teeth and gum tissue. In addition, zirconia is multicolored, highly translucent, and natural looking
We prefer zirconia dental veneers over those made of any other material, including porcelain. Porcelain veneers cannot match zirconia in terms of strength, durability, longevity, appearance, and patient comfort.
When put through rigorous laboratory testing, zirconia veneers had a 200 percent higher bending strength than porcelain products. Zirconia can better withstand the normal wear and tear on teeth from chewing, biting, and speaking. Because of their enhanced durability and strength, zirconia veneers last longer than porcelain.
Aesthetically, zirconia dental veneers look extremely natural. The optimized microstructure of the zirconia produces greater translucency, so the veneers reflect light in the same manner as natural teeth. This gives zirconia veneers an incredibly lifelike appearance. Further, the veneers can be color matched to your existing teeth.
Due to the non-abrasive nature of the material, zirconia veneers offer a level of comfort that is unmatched. Porcelain veneers may cause damage to the surrounding teeth and soft tissues as a result of the friction that occurs when talking or chewing.
