Dental implants have revolutionised the field of modern dentistry by providing effective, visually appealing, and long-lasting solutions for patients with missing teeth. As a biological dentistry clinic, many of our patients actively seek out ceramic implants and we’re going to tell you exactly why. 

What are ceramic implants?

Also known as zirconia implants, ceramic implants are a type of tooth replacement option that are made from a biocompatible material called zirconium oxide – a strong and durable ceramic material that is already being used in many medical and dental applications. Ceramic implants have gained traction as an excellent choice for dental rehabilitation not only due to their aesthetic appeal and biocompatibility, but also because they are non-toxic and metal-free.

5 advantages of ceramic implants

Aesthetic appeal

One of the main reasons that ceramic implants are so appealing is precisely because of their aesthetic appeal. Ceramic implants are white and present a very natural visual appearance, allowing them to blend seamlessly with original teeth. Ceramic implants also integrate better with the surrounding soft tissues, which helps support healthier gums and a more natural-looking, flawless smile. 


Zirconia, the material used in ceramic implants, is highly biocompatible. A bio-inert material that is not only capable of establishing a functional connection with living bone, but is well-tolerated by the human body, reducing the risk of allergic reactions or inflammation. A non-toxic option that is especially beneficial for patients with metal sensitivities or allergies.

Reduced risk of corrosion

Developed using the latest technology, the use of ceramic implants limits the possibility of corrosion stress. At the White Clinic, we only use the finest Swiss-made ceramic implants, which presents a huge advantage in dental rehabilitation, with ceramic implants ensuring long-term functionality and stability.

Less plaque accumulation & sensitivity 

Additional benefits of ceramic implants include a reduction in plaque accumulation and bacterial adhesion, which can contribute to better oral hygiene and less risk of gum disease; but also less hot and cold sensitivity. Ceramic implants have a lower thermal conductivity, which can ultimately contribute to better quality of life for patients.

High strength & durability

Zirconia ceramic implants are incredibly strong and resistant – taking on the functional and mechanical aspect of natural teeth; and they are just as durable as other implant options.

Biocompatible ceramic implants are an important part of biological dentistry and present long-lasting, aesthetically pleasing dental solutions which result in an infection-free, inflammation-free and metal-free mouth, and a 100% natural, healthy smile.
