Currently the material most commonly used for dental implants is titanium but there are now new alternatives to it.
Titanium implants can cause unesthetic situations if they are transparent through the gum.
Zirconium implants are an alternative to metal because it is a white ceramic material. Because of its color, we can obtain a more aesthetic results than titanium implants and have similar mechanical properties.
Zirconium is a biocompatible material also used in other fields of medicine.
