Prosthetic Restorations

Zirkonyum, E-Max, Lamina


Zirconium teeth are made from a material called zirconium oxide and are used as an alternative to metal frameworks. They are applied to patients after being covered with porcelain. The distinctive feature that sets them apart from metal frameworks is their white color. Zirconium material is used in full crowns, bridges, implant abutments, laminate treatments, post and core constructions, as well as inlays and other restorations. In addition to these, there are also zirconium-based orthodontic brackets, implants, and implant superstructures available.


E-max teeth do not contain any metal and are not commonly preferred for posterior teeth. Despite being a more costly treatment compared to those involving metal, it is highly aesthetic. It is predominantly used for anterior teeth. The application of E-max crowns and E-max veneers is among the most common methods for correcting tooth shape abnormalities and minor misalignments. They are not recommended for cases with an extensive edentulous area. E-max porcelain is a material that can be used for many years without problems if proper oral care is maintained.


Lamina teeth are a method in which only the front surfaces of the teeth are thinned by 0.3 – 0.7 mm without cutting the entire tooth structure, minimizing the preparation of healthy tooth tissue. In some cases, laminate dental treatment can be applied without any tooth reduction. It is a commonly used treatment method for excessively stained and misshapen teeth, closing diastema (gap between teeth), fractured tooth restoration, replacement of old fillings, and minor misalignments. Laminate teeth, also known as porcelain veneers, can be made from various types of porcelain. You need to consult with your dentist to determine the most suitable porcelain for you. It is a tissue-friendly treatment due to minimal tooth reduction. Laminate teeth are made from durable materials and do not change color due to external factors such as tea, coffee, and smoking. Porcelain laminate treatment is not recommended for habits such as nail-biting or pen-chewing, or in cases of advanced gum recession. Porcelain laminate treatment can be completed in 2-3 sessions within a week. Porcelain laminates do not fall off the teeth. With the proper bonding technique and the use of advanced technology adhesives, you can use laminate teeth just like your natural teeth. With good and proper oral care, these porcelain teeth can be used without any problems for years. They are resistant to staining and wear. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene to extend their lifespan.
