Zirconia Bridges Offer Unrivaled Strength and Cosmetics
Zirconia implant-supported bridges are one of the strongest and most natural-looking restorations available. Unlike traditional prostheses, zirconia bridges (also known as Prettau® bridges) are held in place by artificial tooth roots and made from an incredibly durable and lifelike material. Using the Teeth in a Day method, we can rebuild your smile with a stunning Prettau zirconia bridge in a single appointment.

We Use State-of-the-Art Technology to Precisely Plan Your Treatment
At Smiles for Life, we incorporate innovative dental technology into all our dental implant procedures. When planning your implant treatment at our Harrisonburg office, our dentists use low-radiation digital x-rays and computed tomography (CT) scans to assess every aspect of your smile. This technology allows us to perform virtually every aspect of your dental implant treatment in our office. Often, we can create a digital simulation of your expected results, so you can feel confident about your decision to proceed with the procedure.
Hear about Jim's Implant Journey
Jim has upper and lower permanent fixed bridges (also called All-on-4 or Same Day Smile). He was able to save significantly on his treatment by billing through Medicare and experienced awesome results with his health and confidence.
Receiving a Zirconia Implant-supported Bridge
Undergoing treatment to receive a zirconia implant-supported bridge is a multi-step process. The first step is dental implants placement. An upper-arch Prettau® Bridge is supported with six dental implants, while a lower-arch version is supported with five. We will use 3-D computerized tomography (CT) scans to determine the best placement locations for your dental implants. After surgery, the implants will be left to heal so that they can completely fuse with the jawbone. When you return to our practice for the final phase of treatment, we will first ensure a proper fit before securing your zirconia implant-supported bridge firmly in place.
