What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of artificial teeth, called pontics, that are anchored or supported by adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. The pontics fill the gap created by missing teeth, while the supporting teeth or implants, known as abutments, provide stability and hold the bridge in place.

What is a Zirconia Implant Bridge
A zirconia implant bridge is a type of dental prosthesis used to replace multiple missing teeth in the mouth. It is supported by dental implants, which are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone.
Zirconia is a durable and biocompatible material that is commonly used in dentistry for its strength and natural tooth-like appearance. It is a type of ceramic material that is resistant to wear, fracture, and corrosion. Zirconia implants are known for their high success rates and long-term stability.
The zirconia implant bridge consists of two main components: the dental implants and the bridge itself. The implants serve as anchors for the bridge, providing a secure foundation. The bridge, which is made of zirconia, is a fixed prosthesis that spans the gap created by missing teeth and is attached to the implants.
A Solution for Several Conditions:
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.
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.
Qualified for Same Day Smile
helping patients discover and learn more about the transformative benefits of Same Day Smile. Our highly skilled dental professionals are dedicated to providing exceptional care and ensuring that each patient’s unique needs and goals are met.
Bone recession is a common side effect of missing teeth. Fortunately, dental implants work even if you have sustained jawbone atrophy. While you would need bone grafting in order to qualify for traditional implants, you can skip these extra steps.
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.
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 All-on-x 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 All-on-x bridge in a single appointment.
Overall, zirconia implant-supported bridges provide a combination of strength, aesthetics, and convenience. They are an excellent choice for individuals seeking a durable and lifelike restoration that can enhance both their oral health and overall quality of life.
What does a All-On-X bridge look like?
All-On-X bridge is a type of zirconia implant-supported bridge known for its exceptional aesthetics and natural appearance. It is made from high-quality zirconia, a ceramic material that closely resembles the color, translucency, and texture of natural teeth.
The All-On-X bridge is custom-designed and fabricated to suit each patient's unique dental anatomy and desired outcome. It typically consists of a solid, monolithic structure that spans the gap created by missing teeth and attaches to the dental implants. The bridge is carefully crafted to blend seamlessly with the surrounding teeth, ensuring a harmonious and natural-looking smile.
It's worth noting that the exact design and aesthetics of a All-On-X bridge may vary depending on the specific needs and preferences of each patient. The bridge is custom-made based on factors such as the number of missing teeth, the condition of the surrounding teeth and gums, and the desired outcome of the patient.
Overall, a All-On-X bridge is a high-quality zirconia implant-supported bridge that offers a natural-looking, durable, and aesthetically pleasing solution for individuals seeking to restore their smile and oral function.

When I embarked on my journey to find the right dental implant service, I initially gravitated towards the two prominent national brands in the field. However, my search took an unexpected and incredibly satisfying turn when I decided to explore the offerings of a local implant provider. Little did I know that this local gem would redefine my expectations of what a top-notch implant service should be like. Here's why my experience with them was nothing short of extraordinary: Meticulous Charting of Teeth and Gums: ★★★★★ One of the first things that set this local provider apart from the national giants was their unwavering commitment to precision and detail. While the big names seemed more focused on the implant procedure itself, this local gem took the time to meticulously chart the condition of my teeth and gums. This attention to detail ensured that my implant procedure was tailored to my specific needs and challenges. It was clear that they understood the importance of a solid foundation for the success of the implants. Infection Prevention Education: ★★★★★ Implant surgery is not without its risks, and one of the key concerns is the possibility of infection. What truly impressed me was the depth of information and guidance this local provider offered regarding infection prevention. They didn't just gloss over this critical aspect; they took the time to discuss the infection possibilities associated with dental implants and, more importantly, outlined a comprehensive plan to combat and mitigate such conditions. Their proactive approach to ensuring patient safety was truly reassuring. First-Year Implant Supervision: ★★★★★ Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of my experience with this local implant provider was their commitment to the long-term success of my dental implants. While the national brands seemed content with the implant procedure itself, this local provider went above and beyond by offering required supervision for the first year following the implant surgery. This level of aftercare and ongoing support was simply unparalleled and gave me peace of mind knowing that my oral health was in capable hands. In conclusion, my exploration journey for dental implants took an unexpected turn when I discovered this exceptional local implant provider. Their dedication to detail, infection prevention, and post-surgery care were nothing short of outstanding. They not only surpassed the standards set by the national brands but also redefined my expectations of what a truly exceptional implant service should encompass. If you're in search of dental implants and want an experience that goes above and beyond, I wholeheartedly recommend giving this local gem a visit. They've certainly earned my trust and gratitude.
