Why use a zirconia abutment?
Dental Implants are almost always made of titanium. The tooth, or crown, on the dental implant does not cement to the dental implant itself. The crown is cemented to the dental implant abutment. Originally, dental implant abutments were all made of titanium or a precious metal. When doing cosmetic dentistry, using crowns with no metal at all, a metal abutment presents with challenge. The crown on the dental implant abutment will be a different color. This is why I choose to use zirconia dental implant abutments in my Palm Harbor, FL dentist office, in cosmetically demanding positions of the mouth.
