Superb Strength for Forever Smiles
If you have damaged or missing teeth, failing dental work or ill-fitting dentures, you’ve likely experienced physical and emotional repercussions. Missing teeth can lead to shifting of other teeth, which can significantly impact your bite, increase your risk of tooth decay and gum disease and negatively impact your self-esteem. Traditional dentures can click, slip and irritate your gums, while underlying bone density deteriorates progressively. If you’re looking for a solution to improve your ability to chew food comfortably, speak clearly and smile with confidence, we have the answer! Dr. Rick Brar offers zirconia bridges at Envision A Smile Dentistry because this dental material boasts incredible tensile strength that earned it the nickname ceramic steel. As such, a dental implant zirconia bridge in St. Charles, IL provides greater stability and long-term function than a traditional bridge. A zirconia bridge attached to dental implants preserves underlying bone density and stimulates new growth because the implants replace your missing natural tooth roots. If you have many missing teeth, a full arch zirconia implant bridge in St. Charles, IL will fully restore your smile function and aesthetics for a more confident, better quality of life.
Advantages of Zirconia Fixed Bridges
The Most Durable Tooth Replacement Material
Traditionally, crowns and bridges have been made from porcelain or porcelain fused to metal (PFM) fabricated with a metal-alloy interior and a porcelain exterior. Porcelain by itself offer prettier aesthetics than PFM, but neither of these options is as strong as zirconia. Zirconia is the strongest tooth-colored material used in modern implant dentistry. Zirconia is 10 times stronger than natural tooth enamel and up to five times stronger than porcelain, making it a great choice for individuals with a history of fractured, cracked or otherwise broken restorations made of other materials. In addition, zirconia can better withstand nail biting and teeth grinding (bruxism). Due to its superior strength, a zirconia bridge in St. Charles, IL greatly reduces the need for prosthetic reconstruction or replacement down the road. Last, zirconia has better resistance to hot and cold temperatures, thereby helping to protect against hypersensitivity that can be an issue with other crown materials.
The Proof Is In Our Patients
