You may have heard that metal implants can be cheaper and stronger than ceramic dental implants. However, metal implants often have untold effects on your health. They can corrode and cause various parts of your body, including your lungs and lymph nodes, to be exposed to titanium and cause allergic reactions in some people.
Ceramic implants are hypoallergenic and integrate better into your mouth than metal. Ceramic surfaces also dramatically reduce bacteria compared to metal implants, making it less likely for you to develop other oral diseases.
A More Natural Smile
Ceramic implants are not only better for your body overall, but they are more pleasing to the eye. Unlike titanium implants, where a dark area or shadow can sometimes be seen around the edge, the color of ceramic implants will blend in more naturally with your other teeth. Even if someone knows you’ve had an implant, they likely won’t be able to tell.
Being able to smile knowing your teeth look good will boost your confidence, allowing you to enjoy the happy moments in your life to the fullest.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long do metal-free dental implants last?
Just like traditional dental implants, ceramic implants are designed to look and function like a natural tooth. They’re extremely durable and resistant to decay for long-lasting results. If you maintain excellent oral hygiene, you may never need to replace your dental implants.
How are metal-free dental implants different than traditional implants?
Metal-free dental implants look and function much the same as traditional implants. The only difference is that they’re made from ceramic material instead of titanium. This is beneficial for your overall health because metal implants can expose other parts of your body to titanium and result in allergic reactions. Metal-free dental implants are hypoallergenic and integrate more naturally with your mouth to protect your long-term health. The ceramic surfaces also have been shown to reduce bacteria and lower your risk of developing other diseases.
