Zirconia is considered the strongest and hardest material used in dentistry today, and its natural white color creates an ideal base for natural-looking teeth restorations. The zirconia is stained and glazed to achieve the color and luster of natural enamel, with an appearance similar to porcelain. Your zirconia bridge will not chip, crack or fracture, and it cannot absorb stains, odors, or bacteria because zirconia is completely impermeable to fluids. This bridge is also usually supported by 6 implants.
Zirconia is an extremely rigid material, too rigid and heavy to immediately load dental implants, so an acrylic temporary bridge is delivered the next day after surgery. Your Permanent Zirconia Implant Bridge will be custom designed 3 months after implant surgery, so the implants have time to firmly integrate and fuse with the jawbone.

Zirconia is considered the strongest material used in dentistry today, and its natural white color creates an ideal base for natural-looking teeth restoration.
