ZIRCONIUM DENTAL BRIDGE INFORMATION
2 day process
Bridges and Types of Material:A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing tooth by joining an artificial tooth definitively to adjacent teeth. A bridge will span the area where teeth are missing. They are attached to the natural teeth (called Anchor).
The cost is based on each unit. A unit represents a tooth. The bridge will have a minimum of two anchor teeth. Typically, an anchor tooth on each side of the missing teeth/tooth.
Bridges: Patients have two options for materials used to make the units on the bridge, either Zirconia or Porcelain Fused to High Noble Metal (PFM).
Zirconia (Zirconium Oxide) is a white powdered metal used to create dental frameworks for crowns, bridges and other dental substructures. It creates the appearance of a whiter more translucent tooth and is transparent in x-rays. Zirconia has been in use in cosmetic dentistry for many years to achieve the most aesthetic result possible but has more recently become widely accepted as the dental material of choice.
