Zirconium Dental Restorations offer several innovative systems for aesthetic crowns and bridges without metal.
The reliability of zirconium restorations in the various alternatives developed by European laboratories such as Cercon and Procera is backed by years of proven clinical success. The innovative system based on a zirconia structure is used to manufacture individual units (teeth) anterior or molar, as well as restorations of bridges of multiple units in zirconia.
The advantages of zirconium dental bridges are multiple: We can create dental bridges with translucent appearance similar to natural teeth, allow a high precision in the final result with better adaptation, is bio-compatible, does not suffer the possible fracture failure of Porcelain on metal that is sometimes seen on porcelain bridges over metal, and is the most durable and durable dental ceramic.
Zirconium dental bridges can be placed with conventional cementing or bonding techniques. Millions of units have been placed around the world since its introduction. Our digital design and milling system results in excellent fit and marginal accuracy for restorations such as zirconium dental bridges.
The clinical performance of zirconia molar crowns was superior to all other tooth-colored materials studied by several research studies over the course of a decade. Based on scanning electron microcoscope (SEM), clinical and laboratory examinations performed three-and-a-half years after placement, zirconia crowns and bridges exhibited excellent adaptation to tissues, resistance to stress and wear.
We are specialists in oral rehabilitation, zirconium dental bridges with the latest technology.
Dental bridge in zirconium in Medellín, contact the specialist:
A dental bridge is a structure comprised of three or more artificial teeth, of which one or more are pontics or teeth replacing the missing ones, and a dental crown attached to each end, bonded to one of the natural remaining teeth to support them.
Bridges are designed using impressions taken of a patient’s smile. Dr. Aguirre prepares the pillar teeth to work as anchors for the crowns to fit the bridge into place.
¿Do the dental bridge work like natural teeth?
Once the structure is fixed, the dental bridge will function like natural teeth, allowing you to eat and smile with confidence.
¿Do dental bridges look like natural teeth?
In the last years in our practice we have been able to make amazing restorations thanks to the newest materials we have available for the construction of dental bridges like Zirconium and other ceramic compounds.
The dental bridge will look close to the natural appearance, aiming to match your natural teeth, to achieve a refreshed and healthier appearance.
Benefits of Dental Bridges
¿What are the advantages of dental bridges?
A dental bridge is a system to replace lost teeth, in a manner that it is permanently attached to the adjacent natural teeth.
Fixed dental bridges are very safe and proven efficacious for decades.
Is very important to replace all missing teeth as soon as possible to prevent remaining teeth from shifting and to deter additional tooth loss. When permanent teeth shift, problems start to unfold: malocclusion, TMJ/TMD, bruxism, and bone loss in the jaw. Your overall facial structure will begin to change and sag, causing premature aging.
Advantages of dental bridges:
Safe and proven technique
More youthful appearance
Improved chewing ability
Balance to your bite
Preservation of supporting tissues (bone and gums)
How are Bridges Constructed?
¿What materials are dental bridges built from?
Dental bridges are made of a series of different materials: ceramic, zirconia, or porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM). At dental Medellin, Dr. Aguirre will help you determine which material is best for your personal oral needs.
Zirconia: One of the latest materials used for dental bridges. Is a white, visually appealing ceramic is biocompatible and very resilient. Zirconia is the strongest ceramic and hardest material used in dentistry, characteristics that allow us to construct strong dental bridges with extraordinary aesthetics.
E-Max Bridges: These all-ceramic bridges are created from a block of lithium disilicate ceramic, a high-quality ceramic recommended for its durability and natural color.
Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM): Is a material combination used for decades. A metal base structure is fused to a porcelain veneer in a high heat oven to create PFM bridges. The metal provides strong density and strength, while the porcelain adds the white, tooth-like appearance most suitable for front teeth restorations. Although strong and offering fine aesthetics, the newest zirconia and Lithium disilicate bridges provide a much better result in achieving a natural appearance.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Dental Bridge?
Most patients with missing teeth qualify for a dental bridge. If a patient has a gap produced by extracted, missing or fractured teeth, flanked by strong enough natural teeth to support the bridge, is very possible to give him/her a solution by constructing a dental bridge in the latest materials.
