After years of functioning in the mouth, the hard and soft tissue around an implant will change and the tissue may get thinner. This is a common physiological phenomenon. Consequently, a titanium implant can give an ugly grey shadow through the tissue. A white, zirconia implant, however, doesn’t have this problem. Even if the tissue gets thinner, it will still be an aesthetic success.
For this reason, zirconia implants should be preferred. Especially in the visible aesthetic zone. But also because of possible allergies against metal in the mouth. Some time ago there was still uncertainty about the long-term performance and safety, but there have already been sufficient clinical results and literature studies supporting that zirconia is at least an equally suitable dental implant material as titanium.
Furthermore, a zirconia implant in general requires less surgical treatments to achieve a beautiful result. Which is not only more comfortable for the patient but should also be a cheaper solution.
