Part of what you expect from titanium dental implants is a smile that functions just as well as a natural smile. You also expect a smile that looks natural, too, but that’s not a sure thing. Titanium dental implants can cause dark lines around the gums, affecting your confidence and drawing attention to your treatment.
The good news for patients from Philadelphia and beyond is that titanium dental implants aren’t the only treatment option out there. At Dr. DiGiallorenzo’s dental offices in Collegeville and Williamsport, we offer metal-free zirconium dental implants to help patients enjoy a more functional, more natural-looking smile.
How Do Metal-Free Dental Implants Work?
Metal-free dental implants and titanium dental implants are similar, but are also different in key ways. The first thing that sets them apart is the fact that metal-free dental implants are made of zirconium. The color of zirconium is more natural, meaning that it blends in with your teeth and gums better.
What’s more, metal-free dental implants discourage the accumulation of plaque and tarter, providing greater protection from gum disease. That’s a not-insignificant benefit to consider. With so many adults managing some form of gum disease, every little bit helps.
