Choosing Metal-Free Restorations
At Optima Dental, Dr. Houenou is excited to offer NobelPearl™, a two-piece, metal-free, all-ceramic dental implant. This remarkable solution provides a unique alternative to traditional three-piece implants that are secured using a titanium fixture.
The fixture is the section of the implant the acts like the root of a natural tooth, forming a strong connection with the patient’s jawbone to keep the implant firmly in place. This process is called osseointegration.
Most dental implants feature a titanium fixture. However, titanium is a type of metal, and many of our patients prefer metal-free restorations. Implants with titanium fixtures have the following drawbacks:
- A dark gray shadow can become visible around the edges of the implant
- It’s susceptible to corrosion
- Bacteria can form in the small spaces between the sections of the implant
- Some patients have a sensitivity to metal
- Metal conducts heat and electricity
SAFE & ATTRACTIVE ALL-CERAMIC IMPLANTS
With conventional implants, if you have thin gums, people can often see the titanium when you smile. However, NobelPearl has a tooth-colored fixture, making it an exceptional choice for anyone with a thin gingival biotype.
NobelPearl implants are proven to effectively osseointegrate thanks to their hydrophilic sand-blasted and acid-etched ZERAFIL™ surface.
Furthermore, the precision and accuracy of the manufacturing process allow Dr. Houenou to complete your procedure with premium results in a time-efficient manner.

HOW DOES NOBELPEARL WORK?
The reason NobelPearl is a successful alternative to traditional metal implants stems from its unique design.
NobelPearl’s design ensures excellent soft-tissue attachment, and it has a lower inflammatory response, which helps kick-start the healing process. Additionally, NobelPearl implants are crafted from Zirconia, creating natural harmony with your gums and a sturdy base for the rest of the implant.
After the fixture is in place, Dr. Houenou will complete the rest of the procedure. One of the significant benefits of the NobelPearl design is the Inter-X internal connection. This connection is customized for ceramic implants and contains no cement. The Inter-X design will ensure that your implant remains securely in place and your restoration stays centered.
