What exactly is Zirconium?
Zirconium/ zirconia is biocompatible, non allergic, non electrical conductive material with the unique specification of letting light pass through so that the crown appears to be a natural tooth. Zirconinum/zirconia also provides the extra comfort that it would not break or chip over a period of time as against a full porcelain crown to which this is occasionally known to happen.
Porcelain is the traditional material used for new crowns. Full porcelain however may chip or break. This is overcome by making the crowns from metal, in this case the metal being zirconia, then fusing porcelain to the outside.
The zirconia metal provides the strength whilst the porcelain provides the outward appearance on a normal tooth. Zirconium crowns allow light to pass through as with a normal tooth giving a natural look, unlike other metal cores which block the light. Some resources are also calling them as Non-Allergic Crowns and say Zirconia is"Biocompatible" because the body does not reject it. Unlike Amalgam Fillings and metal alloys, the human body accepts zirconium, zirconia as a natural material, so you would not need to worry about allergies or adverse reactions.

Hello my name is Declan Deane. I was recommended Tourmedical by very close friends of mine, who are patients for years with them. Im an age of my life where my teeth need to be checked, as you get older we all know the problems begin. The whole process is excellent from pick up from your hotel and taken to their spotlessly clean clinic, which you given your ‘blue shoes’ to wear immediately . All the staff are lovely, very friendly and professional. Your xray is taken and then you are guided through your treatment plan. Every step you are informed, what will be happening, from having your injections, impressions , checkings etc as the process is put into action.
Im at the end of the week now, had a day using my new teeth and back today for final check before I go home tomorrow and am very very happy with my treatment.
Thank you Declan Deane.
Hi my name is Jenny and im from London , Im very impressed with the treatment i have received. The Cosmetic Dentist advised me exactly what I would need for my smile, which you can now see!!!
Everybody is so friendly, I felt at home. The Clinic is spotlessly clean and state of the art for a dental Clinic. I would highly recommend Tourmedical and I am very very happy.
I heard about Tourmedical from a friend. I have to say the treatment was fantastic, I had been to a clinic in Kusadasi, previously but was not happy with the treatment I received and have paid the price since, as Tourmedical, had to try and solve the problems caused, which is not easy, as with dentistry, one mistake by a dentist is not something that can be reversed!! Anyway I have now completed another stage of my treatment and have to say the experience has been excellent as you are made so at ease, everybody is so nice.
The dentist is very professional and caring, everything was explained to me and the clinic is the state of the art and spotlessly clean.
The extra service of being picked up by their lovely driver and dropped back again, makes everything so easy.
I highly recommend Tourmedical, already have and will continue to do so.
