With increasing expectations of having aesthetical teeth similar to the natural ones, the use of aesthetical materials in the mouth, especially in front parts, has gained more importance. New alternatives have been searched since metal supported porcelain we have used for many years has had the failure to achieve a natural appearance due to lack of light transmitting in the system and has caused graying in the gums due to allergic cases from time to time.

Zirconium, with the distinction of being tissue friendly, has been used in dentistry. With the use of zirconium in dentistry, durability close to metal infrastructure is provided. The reasons why zirconium doesn’t reflect from the bottom as other materials do, it doesn’t cause coloration of the gums and it shows a resistance to corrosion, lead to increase in its use.
