Next, we will place several dental implants along the arch of the jaw. The number depends on the volume of bone in the jaw and on other factors, but typically we place between 4-6 implants. These act as tooth roots, and perform many of the same functions. They integrate with the jawbone through an organic process known as osseointegration, during which bone tissue grows and wraps around the implant to hold it in place.
These dental implants are what holds the bridge, which comes next. Our bridges are made from zirconia, the strongest material available in restorative dentistry. Unlike acrylic options, our zirconia bridges are resistant to chipping and staining. You’ll enjoy your new, gorgeous smile for many years to come. Because the material is so strong, the crowns can be made a little bit thinner – and still be stronger and more durable than the competition –, which gives them the translucence of a natural tooth.
This is an amazing procedure because of how long-lasting and stunningly natural the results are. Come see for yourself, we are happy to show you case studies and we are excited to help you on your journey toward a new, higher quality of life.
