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.

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.
I have been coming to Turkey for over 20 years and to sort my teeth out, was always something I was planning to do. This year I came and made some searches and found Tourmedical to be the most efficient and trust worthy clinic.
I was collected from my Hotel and taken to the clinic for a consultation, the clinic was the cleanest place id ever seen, the technology unbelievable, my xray was taken and I was given treatment options. I needed to talk to my partner about it and I was put under no pressure and got back later that day to them to confirm I wanted to proceed. My appointment was made, I was picked up and dropped back and something I was so worried and nervous about, turned out to be the easiest thing i had ever done. The dentist was brilliant, plenty of anesthetic, I didn’t feel a thing, she was a perfectionist, on my checking day, when I saw my teeth, I was very happy, but she wasn’t, and pointed out a few changes she wanted to make, so they would be perfect, the next day, they were fitted and I am a very happy man and cant wait to go back and show all my friends my new smile.
Im a patient of Tourmedical for a good few years and can only say the treatment is fantastic. From beginning to end, the professionalism and attention to detail is number one. I cant say enough about combining a holiday and dental treatment with Tourmedical. The service and treatment is amazing and I’ll be back for more in the future.
