Advantages of zirconia blocks as dentures


It is well known that our teeth are vital for chewing, digestion, speech, appearance and facial structure. They help break down food, form sounds and support facial muscles. Healthy teeth can boost self-confidence, prevent dental problems and promote overall health. That's why there are a variety of factors to consider regarding the choice of denture material. These are the benefits of zirconia blocks as dentures:


Zirconia blocks have excellent strength and durability, making them ideal for dental laboratories. And, unlike other dental materials, its resistance to chipping and staining ensures long-lasting performance, which makes it a reliable choice for everyday dental use.


The finished zirconia block mimics the natural colour of the teeth to the greatest extent possible, which gives it a more natural appearance and allows it to blend in perfectly with the patient's existing teeth. By enhancing the overall appearance of the denture, it ensures that the patient's smile remains sparkling and attractive. Not only that, but its excellent shade stability over time means that it can maintain its vibrant appearance for a long time without discolouration or fading, ensuring that patients' smiles remain consistent and satisfying. In addition, the surface texture of a zirconia denture is also very close to that of natural teeth, making it ideal for use as a denture.


The biocompatibility of zirconia block means that it is non-toxic and harmless to a person's mouth and will not cause damage to oral health. It is well tolerated by the human body and will greatly reduce the chances of allergic reactions, making it particularly suitable for patients who are allergic to other dental materials. Moreover, when a zirconia denture is placed in the mouth, its structure will support the surrounding oral tissue structure, which promotes the patient's comfort of use. What's more, it has excellent corrosion resistance and does not release toxic substances into the mouth over time, ensuring the long-term safety and biocompatibility of the denture and minimising the risk of adverse reactions. It is also chemically stable and will not change significantly or degrade in the oral cavity.
