Frequently asked questions
Dentistry has been developing its technology year after year, due to this developments a new material was born, zirconia. This material is used in natural dentition and implants. With zirconia we are able to take out metal from our prostheses, which gives the patient better esthetics and tolerance against the material. This is also a great advantage for metal allergic patients.
Esthetics is one of the principal indications of zirconia, due to its white color the appearance it gives to our restorations is great and when time pases by and gums move apically no metallic border is seen. At i2 Implantoly we work with IPS e.max as the gold standard material, our patients love their new restorations due to the esthetics provided by this material.
