Zirconia Dental Implants

Zirconia dental implants are the most natural-looking dental implants currently available. Dental implant surgery is a highly sought-after procedure to replace missing teeth permanently. While traditional dental implants are long-lasting and durable, they may cause less than natural-looking results by discoloring your gumline with a grey hue.

As traditional dental implants are made out of titanium, they may be more likely to be visible through your gumline, causing a dull grey color to be present when you smile. For the most natural-looking smile, we may suggest opting for zirconia dental implants in Arlington.

What is a zirconia dental implant?

A zirconia dental implant is a ceramic dental implant that is a permanent solution to missing teeth. Zirconia implants, which are often referred to as ceramic dental implants or metal-free dental implants, are white in color to match the natural hue of your teeth. While traditional dental implants are a highly effective missing tooth replacement, many oral surgeons have begun to suggest zirconia dental implants for the most natural-looking, beautiful smile possible. Zirconia implants are a durable replacement for missing teeth that can help restore your smile and make talking, chewing, and smiling more comfortable. Ceramic dental implants do not require any specialized care, as they look, feel, and function like your natural teeth.


What are the benefits of zirconia dental implants?

In addition to being a durable, long-lasting replacement for missing teeth, ceramic dental implants can help you to achieve a more natural-looking smile. With white dental implants, there is no risk of your gums appearing discolored with a greyish hue, as traditional dental implants may cause. Because traditional dental implants are made out of titanium, they have the possibility to corrode over time. Zirconia dental implants are longer-lasting and do no suffer corrosion.

The biocompatible design of zirconia dental implants allows for the seamless progression from the dental implant to the gumline. Ceramic dental implants are ideal for patients who have an allergy or a negative reaction to titanium. Zirconia dental implants are also easily accepted by the gumline and jawbone, which makes for a shorter recovery time and a more successful procedure. Ceramic dental implant surgery prevents jawbone loss and resorption, preserving a healthy, bright smile.

What can I expect from zirconia dental implants in DC?

Prior to your zirconia dental implant surgery, we will perform an oral examination of your missing teeth. With this information, we will create an individualized treatment regimen and customize the procedure to your specific needs. To start your zirconia dental implant procedure, Dr. Pashapour and his surgical team will remove any unhealthy or damaged teeth as discussed during your consultation. We will then place an anchorage screw into your gumline and jawbone, which acts as the base for your new tooth. Similar to the roots of your natural teeth, the anchorage screw is what will provide your new tooth with stability and durability.

Following the placement of this anchorage screw, your jawbone will heal and undergo osseointegration, or the process where your dental implant securely bonds with your gums and jawbone. This process may take between 3-5 months to occur. During your follow-up appointment after your dental implant has undergone osseointegration, we will insert a new tooth onto your zirconia dental implant, providing a fuller, healthier smile. At Pashapour Oral + Facial Surgery, we guarantee the life of your zirconia dental implants.
