Ceramic Dental Solutions

Tooth replacement with biologically sound implant materials continues to grow in popularity. Accordingly, the demand for suitable alternatives to titanium alloys is increasing. Thanks to the excellent biocompatibility and enhanced aesthetic outcome more and more implantologists and patients show a preference for ceramic implant materials. 

As a world innovation leader for advanced ceramics CeramTec can help you to find the right solution and to achieve the desired level of differentiation. We are drawing on more than 30 years of experience in dental applications and specialist know-how in ceramics. 

White Label Offer

Benefit from our CE-marked and FDA-cleared, ready to use white label offer to expand your dental implant portfolio:

The new ZERAMEX© XT implant is the latest member in the family of metal-free, two-piece, reversible screw-in ceramic implants. The thread design of the ZERAMEX® XT implant is intended to achieve high preliminary stability in all bone qualities. High prosthetic flexibility is ensured thanks to the two-piece implant design with removable screw. The key component is our proprietary VICARBO® technology made of carbon-fiber-reinforced high-performance PEEK Polymer.

Manufacturing competence in bioceramics for medical use.
DENSILOX® bioceramics are biocompatible.

The Biocompatible Choice

Ceramic implants are 100% metal-free. Therefore, patients with metal sensitivity might find a viable solution with ceramic dental implants3,4. Ceramics show excellent biocompatibility5,6,7 and are chemically stable in a physiological environment8. They are unlikely to trigger inappropriate immune reactions after implantation.5,6,9

Natural and Aesthetic

Our ceramic materials come in different shades of white mimicking the natural colouring of the tooth. For patients with thin gums there is no risk of grey colouring shining through (tattooing), as it can occur with metal implants10,11. Ceramic materials do not release metal ions, and therefore do not cause grey stains along the gumline12. Choose white ceramic implants for white teeth and a natural aesthetic outcome.
