Best Dental Bridge | Prettau Zirconia

The Best Solution for You

Posted on February 18, 2021

Dentistry has evolved in many exciting ways over the years. For instance, dentures used to be the preferred method of replacing teeth. Dental implants are now one of the best means of restoring smiles. Even when you need to replace a full mouth of teeth, dental implant supported bridges are often the best solution. These permanent bridges are longer lasting, more natural looking, and less likely to slip cause pain than traditional dentures.

Be aware, however, that not all implants and bridges are created equal. You have different types of materials to choose from, including ceramic, acrylic and zirconia. So what are the best dental bridges?

For our patients who qualify, we recommend a non-removable implant bridge made exclusively from Prettau® Zirconia. Prettau® Zirconia is an advanced and effective material that is the best choice for dental bridges, leaving you with natural, long-lasting teeth.

What is Prettau® Zirconia?

Prettau® Zirconia is a state-of-the-art material, designed by the best in restorative dentistry. Unlike other dental bridge materials, Prettau® Zirconia is non-porous, which means it is easy to care for. It is customizable to a wide range of shades and colors, so your smile will always look natural. The finished product is a smile that won’t need extra restorations. Only a select number of dental practices offer these life-changing implants – and we’re proud to be one of them!

Prettau® Zirconia is both highly durable (to eliminate wear from biting, chewing and talking) and just flexible enough to be sculpted and shaped to custom fit your mouth for superior comfort. It also has a smoother finish than other common dental bridge materials, making it easier to clean.


How is Zirconia Used to Make a Bridge?

A dedicated lab sculpts your dental bridge from one large block of Prettau® Zirconia. Using a single block avoids the weaknesses that come from joining different materials together. Your Prettau® Zirconia dental bridge is first precision-milled using CAD/CAM technology. Next, the lab hand-colors and polishes your bridge to create non-removable, durable, natural-looking teeth that allow you to smile with confidence.

Because each bridge is custom made, the contours and coloring will be custom fit to you. Our team of compassionate experts at Woodstock General and Implant Dentistry want to find the best solution for you. We will confirm the fit and check in on your comfort.

What Are the Benefits?

The best full mouth dental implants and bridges are the ones that restore your smile and help you live your life to the fullest again. Prettau® Zirconia dental implant bridges do all that and more. Thanks to its unique characteristics, Zirconia is resistant to plaque and bacteria – so your new smile won’t stain or absorb odors, unlike acrylic dental restorations. With Prettau® Zirconia dental bridges, you can talk and eat the foods you love again without the embarrassment or pain of your teeth slipping or shifting. The material is also durable and extremely resistant to chips or cracks.
