Ceramic Dental Bridges

Tooth-colored bridges used to only be made of porcelain fused to metal. But with the new technologies available today, they can be made entirely of stronger ceramics. To have enough strength to withstand biting forces, porcelain bridges used to always be built upon a metal core. The dark metal inside the porcelain bridge could cause a dark blue line to show at the edge of the bridge. More advanced metal reinforced bridges rarely have that problem now, but the metalwork still needs skillful technical ability and masking to be hidden well.

New breakthroughs in bonding materials and stronger ceramics now make it possible to make ceramic dental bridges entirely out of porcelain with reinforced Ceramic sub- structures, which then can be bonded to the teeth.

All ceramic dental bridges maintain a translucency that makes them virtually undetectable. Without metal, any problem of a dark blue line at the edge of the gums is eliminated. This allows Dr. Tehranian; your cosmetic dentist in Preston to place the edge of the bridge above the gum-line where needed, which is healthier for your tooth and gums.

Types of Ceramic Dental Bridges offered by your Cosmetic Dentist in Preston

 

  • 3M™ ESPE™ Lava™ Bridge system is an innovative CAD/CAM technology using a zirconium oxide base. The aesthetics of Lava ceramic dental bridges represent the optimum in all-ceramic systems. Preparations require removal of less tooth structure. Colorable frameworks that are thin and translucent ensure a natural and vital appearance. Lava bridges provide some of the most durable and aesthetic all-ceramic restorations available today.
  • Cercon® Zirconia Bridge is an innovative system for aesthetic metal-free ceramic dental bridges. The reliability of  Zirconia restorations is backed by more than nine years of proven clinical success. The system is used to fabricate anterior or posterior single units or multi-unit bridge restorations out of translucent, bio-compatible Zirconia, the strongest and toughest dental ceramic.
  • Procera Bridge is similar to Lava, but the milled ceramic bridge on the inside is a more translucent alumina, rather than an opaque white material. The alumina is shaded, and then the final aesthetics of the crown is achieved in the baked-on outer layer.
