At Smile 32 Dentistry, we provide personalized care to meet your unique needs, whether you need preventive, restorative or cosmetic dentistry services. If you have missing teeth and are looking for tooth replacement solutions, Dr. Vakil has training and experience creating different types of customized tooth replacement options—from traditional bridges—to zirconia bridges attached to dental implants. A fixed zirconia bridge in Houston, TX is fabricated from a solid block of zirconium oxide, a strong, safe dental ceramic with superb translucency that closely matches the appearance of natural teeth. Whether you need to replace missing teeth with a partial bridge or a full arch of teeth, a zirconia bridge will permanently restore the function and beauty of your smile. A dental implant zirconia bridge in Houston, TX is a great choice for long-lasting replacement of failing or missing teeth!
A dental implant zirconia bridge in Houston, TX provides exceptional strength that is comparable to natural teeth. While a zirconia bridge is made from a material with physical properties similar to titanium metal, it offers far prettier aesthetics. Traditional dentures and some hybrids are made by securing porcelain teeth into an acrylic base, which is essentially a type of plastic. Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns are also still used in dentistry, although they have drawbacks. Their inner metal layer can cause a visible tell-tale line along the gums and the porcelain coating on the metal can wear, chip or break. Zirconia bridges eliminate common problems associated with two-material, traditional solutions. Its inherent strength enables creating thinner dental crowns than those fabricated with metals. A bridge fabricated from zirconia can withstand everyday wear and tear and offers a significantly stronger bite force without fracturing. Unlike traditional bridges, a dental implant zirconia bridge replaces both the tooth roots and crowns, thereby preserving underlying bone and stimulating new growth. A full arch zirconia implant bridge in Houston, TX helps prevent undesirable facial changes that can result from bone deterioration.
In addition to its strength, a bridge made from zirconia has the color and translucency of natural teeth. Our skilled cosmetic dentist will customize this restoration to your smile specifications and ensure the new teeth complement your facial features, gum and lip line and even your skin tone. Unlike acrylic and porcelain materials, the smooth and polished surface of zirconia will feel comfortable against your gums and resist staining. When you receive a zirconia fixed bridge in Houston, TX from Dr. Vakil, you’ll enjoy a radiant new smile for decades—and nobody will be able to tell they aren’t your natural teeth!
At Smile 32 Dentistry, we always strive to offer the latest techniques, technologies and top-quality materials to transform our patients’ lives. Although zirconia is a more expensive option than less aesthetically-pleasing and functional solutions, the cost of a zirconia bridge is immediately matched by its beauty, durability and longevity. If you choose a zirconia bridge, you’ll be able to eat, speak and smile with confidence for decades to come. We’ve seen firsthand how our patients benefited from getting full arch zirconia implant bridges in Houston, TX, so we want to make this treatment as affordable as possible. We partner with insurance companies and offer third-party financing to help make this exceptional tooth replacement option more attainable.
