Zirconia Dental Bridges San Diego . Orange County . Los Angeles

Zirconia Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are fixed dental restorations replacing one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth or dental implants. The artificial tooth is supported in the gap by two crowns that cover the natural teeth on each side of the gap. To put it another way, it 'bridges' the space between your teeth.

Zirconia bridges are frequently favored over conventional metallic bridges because they produce significantly lower tooth discomfort and do not leave the unsightly grey line around the gum.

What Is A Zirconia Bridge ?

Dental bridges are fixed dental restorations replacing one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth or dental implants. The artificial tooth is supported in the gap by two crowns that cover the natural teeth on each side of the gap. To put it another way, it 'bridges' the space between your teeth.

A zirconia bridge is one of a kind since it is made of Zirconium oxide, a strong kind of dental ceramic that is biocompatible. This means that a zirconia bridge will not be rejected or negatively impact the body. This is definitely a concern with metal-based bridges, as some people are allergic to the metals used in their construction. A zirconia bridge has a transparent look and blends in well with your other teeth.

Benefits of a Zirconia Bridge

The major benefits of zirconia bridges are that they are solid, robust, and attractive, and integrate well with the rest of your teeth. Furthermore, the substance used to construct this bridge is biocompatible, meaning it is compatible with your tissue and will not produce any adverse effects or hypersensitivity.

Furthermore, this bridge does not have a metal foundation. This means there will be no unsightly discoloration along the gum line, which is a frequent feature of metal bridges. This is excellent news from a cosmetic standpoint, since many individuals prefer to wear a bridge with crowns that closely match the color of their natural teeth.

Disadvantages Of A Zirconia Bridge

You might be asking if there are any drawbacks to this sort of bridge.

One concern is the cost. Zirconia bridges are likely to be more costly than metallic bridges. You should shop around to locate the most appropriate and cost-effective solution for you. It is critical that you select a bridge that is the optimum fit for your teeth.

Installing A Zirconia Bridge

The fitting procedure is the same as it is for any other form of bridge. Your doctor will examine your teeth before discussing the benefits and drawbacks of treatment with you. If you are a suitable candidate for a zirconia bridge, your doctor will prepare your teeth for this type of bridge. The preparation step is the first of a two-stage treatment that includes obtaining an imprint of the damaged teeth as well as x-rays to back it up. This step also comprises 'tooth reduction,' in which the dentist uses a tiny drill to cut the damaged teeth to allow the crowns to fit over the top.

Digital information is sent to a dental laboratory, which will construct your bridge in two to three weeks. You will be given a temporary bridge to use during this period. Once your bridge has been made, you will return for the fitting. Before cementing the new bridge into place, your dentist will fit it and check that it is a proper fit. Your dentist will next give you advice on how to take care of your bridge properly.
