Zirconium Bridges

Zirconia Bridges explained…

You may ask yourself, what is a zirconium bridge and why would I choose this?

A zirconium bridge is designed in the same manner as other types of dental bridges. However, there are many advantages to choosing this type of bridge when compared to other options.

There is no metal used in a zirconia bridge.

Are there other advantages to having zirconia bridgework? Of course. Let’s focus on those for a moment.

  • Strength
  • Aesthetics
  • Less preparation
    • Minimal tooth reduction is needed to ensure a good fit of the zirconia bridgework
  • Less sensitivity

What is involved in the fitting process? It is the same as fitting any other type of bridge. We will discuss all of the pros and cons of the procedure with you at your visit. If found to be a good candidate for zirconia bridges and you choose this procedure, we will continue with treatment and prepare your teeth for the bridge. We will also take X-rays and an impression of the affected teeth to ensure the bridge fits properly.

While making your decision about the type of bridgework you would like to have, imagine: yourself, your new smile, having less tooth sensitivity, needing less tooth preparation for the procedure, and a more natural look to your bridgework. We invite you to discover how you can benefit from a zirconia bridge. Call us today for a consultation!
