Porcelain Dental Implants

Living with missing or failing teeth and missing an impressive smile?

Are you considering tooth replacement options?

With porcelain dental implants in London, you can ensure your teeth look white and even for years to come.

Why choose porcelain dental implants

Most dental implant systems are made up of the dental implant screw, an abutment, and an implant crown – which replace the missing natural tooth. 

However, while titanium is the more common choice for dental implant screws and abutments, for those looking for a cosmetically-beneficial, porcelain dental implants are a more aesthetic solution. 

Porcelain dental implants offer white zirconia-based implants and abutments, which are ideal for:

  • Areas at the front of the mouth, where gums might be thinner
  • If they want to blend porcelain dental implants in with their remaining teeth 

The benefits of porcelain dental implants, rather than titanium, include: 

Increased biocompatibility 

Just like titanium dental implants, porcelain implants have high levels of biocompatibility. 

This means porcelain, or similar ceramics, can be used inside the body without interrupting the living tissues or systems, causing an immunological rejection, or becoming toxic or injurious. 

Realistic appearance 

Porcelain looks more like natural teeth than common alternatives, thanks to its: 

  • White colouring
  • Slight translucence
  • Light-reflecting, or optic, properties

As such, it is frequently used in highly aesthetic cases, where the appearance of the teeth is of the utmost importance, such as for those in the public eye and are involved in modelling, public speaking, or singing. 

Resistant to staining

Porcelain is a durable material that has a built-in resistance to staining and discolouration – making it the ideal choice for patients who regularly enjoy staining foods, like red wine, black coffee, and fresh berries. 

This also means that porcelain dental implants will look good for years to come and can blend in with whitened natural teeth. 

Metal-free dental implants

While uncommon, there may be patients who would prefer to avoid adding metallic elements – be it because of an allergy or a holistic belief. 

How long do porcelain dental implants last?

Worried porcelain dental implants will be delicate and fragile?

You aren’t alone – many patients are often concerned about the use of porcelain, which is notoriously breakable and frail.

However, thanks to rigorous testing by Straumann®, the CERAMIC system has been proven to last for at least 10-15 years with the appropriate care.

How to care for your porcelain dental implants:

  • Attend all appointments – this includes all pre- and post-dental implant treatment appointments and regular hygienist visits to keep your teeth healthy and strong.
  • Prioritise your oral health – it is essential that you brush thoroughly at least twice daily and floss once daily, or your dental health could deteriorate.
  • Stop smoking – an easy way to decrease the risk of infection and encourage the healing process is to stop using any nicotine-based products.
    Choose an experienced implant provider – which can result in a better quality of treatment, that lasts longer.
