If you’ve lost all your natural teeth or most of your teeth are failing, you want restorations that will give you everything you once had: a full, strong and confident smile that never lets you down. You want to eat all your favorite foods again without worrying about your restorations. These are the reasons that the team here at Perio & Implant at Washington Metro recommends zirconia for restorations. Made from zirconium, zirconia is a ceramic material that mirrors the qualities of titanium in many ways, including its strength. For a perfect smile that will last for years to come, you can’t do better than a zirconia fixed bridge in Washington, DC and Rockville, MD.
As part of a full mouth dental implant solution, a zirconia fixed bridge is often the ideal option when you’ve lost multiple teeth to regain the esthetics and function of your mouth. Our periodontist is a specialist in dental implants, and she uses an expert and esthetic eye to ensure that every part of your zirconia fixed bridge reflects the natural-looking and attractive smile you deserve.
Your zirconia fixed bridge will have strength comparable to natural teeth, allowing you to properly bite and chew food for decades to come. These bridges get their incredible durability and strength from the way they’re fabricated: they’re made from one solid piece of zirconia. Zirconia bridges are made from a material that has similar physical properties to titanium metal, but esthetic properties that offer attractive results. Traditional dentures and some hybrid dentures are made by securing porcelain teeth into an acrylic base. Zirconia bridges eliminate the weaknesses associated with the two-material design of these traditional solutions. Your zirconia fixed bridge will withstand everyday wear and tear and offer significantly improved bite forces without fracturing or moving. When permanently attached to dental implants, this system will help ensure that your jawbone remains healthy and well-stimulated as well.
We offer zirconia fixed bridges because we’ve seen the truly life-changing effects full arch dental implants with natural-looking restorations can have on our patients. Always striving to offer the latest techniques and technology to transform lives, we knew we couldn’t compromise on the materials we made available to you. Although a more expensive option than other less esthetic solutions, the cost of our zirconia bridge is immediately matched by the durability and longevity it provides. If you choose a zirconia bridge, you can expect decades of confidence when eating, speaking and smiling. You can also expect us to make this treatment as affordable as possible. Partnering with insurance providers and third-party financing companies, we make payments easy and achievable. If you’re considering other options for replacing your teeth, don’t make a decision before first completing a consultation with our team!
