Do many patients seek tooth replacement solutions like Same Day Smile?

When is an implant-supported bridge needed?

A Solution for Several Conditions:

A Solution for Several Conditions:

Missing Teeth

Losing multiple teeth can jeopardize your oral health and lead to further tooth loss. A Prettau bridge is highly recommended because it replaces teeth from root to crown.

Widespread Decay

Decay can spread, taking over the majority of your smile. If most of the teeth in an arch are compromised, an implant-supported bridge may be the ideal solution.

Damage or Trauma

If you have suffered an injury that has broken several or most of your teeth, we may recommend a zirconia bridge to replace them and restore full function to your smile.

Most patients who qualify for implants can receive Teeth in a Day...

Have Sufficient Bone Tissue

Before recommending implants, your dentist will assess the health and stability of your jaw. Since dental implants rely on surrounding tissue for support, you may need a bone graft if your jawbone has atrophied.

Be in Good Health

Oral health issues, such as gum disease, and health concerns, such as diabetes, can affect the success of your implants. Be sure to discuss your full medical and dental history with our team during your initial implant consultation.

Avoid Smoking

Smoking and other tobacco use can significantly increase the chance of complications after implant surgery. For this reason, we strongly recommend quitting the habit at least a few months before your procedure.

Zirconia Bridges Offer Unrivaled Strength and Cosmetics

Zirconia implant-supported bridges are one of the strongest and most natural-looking restorations available. Unlike traditional prostheses, zirconia bridges (also known as Prettau® bridges) are held in place by artificial tooth roots and made from an incredibly durable and lifelike material. Using the Teeth in a Day method, we can rebuild your smile with a stunning Prettau zirconia bridge in a single appointment.

We Use State-of-the-Art Technology to
Precisely Plan Your Treatment

At Smiles for Life, we incorporate innovative dental technology into all our dental implant procedures. When planning your implant treatment at our Bridgewater or Staunton office, our dentists use low-radiation digital x-rays and computed tomography (CT) scans to assess every aspect of your smile. This technology allows us to perform virtually every aspect of your dental implant treatment in our office. Often, we can create a digital simulation of your expected results, so you can feel confident about your decision to proceed with the procedure.

Receiving a Zirconia Implant-supported Bridge

Undergoing treatment to receive a zirconia implant-supported bridge is a multi-step process. The first step is dental implants placement. An upper-arch Prettau® Bridge is supported with six dental implants, while a lower-arch version is supported with five. We will use 3-D computerized tomography (CT) scans to determine the best placement locations for your dental implants. After surgery, the implants will be left to heal so that they can completely fuse with the jawbone. When you return to our practice for the final phase of treatment, we will first ensure a proper fit before securing your zirconia implant-supported bridge firmly in place.
