Do You Want a Traditional Acrylic Bridge or a Leading Edge Implant Bridge Made of Solid Zirconia?
Millions of people are searching for the most natural and reliable way to replace their failing and missing teeth or replace loose dentures. Permanently attached implant supported bridgework is an ideal solution for these patients. Traditional implant bridges are made of acrylic whereas the permanent Teeth Next Day® bridge is made of solid zirconia.
What is the Difference Between Acrylic and Zirconia Bridges?
With acrylic bridges, the liquid acrylic resin is poured into a mold that has been created for your mouth. Once the resin hardens, conventional denture teeth are added and then the bridge is attached to the implants. Acrylic has a tendency to discolor, crack and break over time.
The permanent Zirconia Implant Bridge is much stronger, being precision-milled from a solid block of zirconia. It is then hand-colored and thoroughly polished so that it looks exactly like natural teeth before it's permanently and securely anchored to your implants.
THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING THE RIGHT MATERIAL FOR YOUR DENTAL BRIDGE:
Fit & Function
Acrylic is not strong enough to withstand the forces of chewing food multiple times per day. Acrylic bridges with denture teeth have a tendency to crack and break over time. When the acrylic fractures, excess stresses are placed on the implants leading to possible implant failure.
Acrylic is suitable as a temporary material, but not a permanent. A Zirconia Implant Bridge is much more stable and actually forms a supporting structure that minimizes any movement or stress on the implants.
While Acrylic bridgework is cheaper than a Zirconia Implant Bridge, acrylic often needs to be replaced every few years. Eating and chewing take a toll on the softer acrylic resin, causing it to crack and break over time.
Zirconia is slightly more costly than acrylic initially but is so much more durable. Zirconia withstands pressure and resist chipping, fractures and wear. You most likely will never need repairs, so it actually saves you money over time.
Acrylic bridges with denture teeth stain easily, look more artificial and are more difficult to clean than solid Zirconia.
The Zirconia Implant Bridge is custom designed to complement your facial features and looks totally natural so your smile will be beautiful, like healthy natural teeth.
WHY PRETTAU® ZIRCONIA IS A BETTER CHOICE FOR DENTAL BRIDGES THAN ACRYLIC WITH DENTURE TEETH
Zirconia is stronger and much more durable than Acrylic.
Zirconia bridgework doesn’t look artificial. It looks totally natural.
Solid Zirconia bridgework is non-porous, so it doesn’t stain and is easy to clean.
Zirconia doesn’t attract plaque and bacteria, so it minimizes your risk of bad breath, gum disease, and other conditions that affect your overall health.
Zirconia won’t crack, chip or break like Acrylic bridges.
Zirconia Bridgework is designed and manufactured using leading edge CAD/CAM technology to achieve a perfect fit with optimum comfort.
