Bridges are permanent prosthetic replacements which compensate for one or more lost teeth. Natural teeth or dental implants can be used as carriers of the future bridge. If natural teeth are used, they have to be drilled.
As an alternative to the bridge, partial dentures or implants can be made. Partial dentures are not permanently fixed to the teeth and should be removed for hygienic reasons.
Today, patients are increasingly opting for implants because the natural teeth that will serve as carriers of the bridge do not require drilling. Materials used in the making of bridges are ceramic and zirconium.
Zirconium is a modern material whose creation is aided by digital technology (CAD / CAM). It provides a precise grip on teeth and gums, and its light transmitting properties offer exceptional aesthetics and a natural look.
