Custom Prettau® Zirconia Replacement Teeth
At Astoria Dental Group, we know that every patient’s mouth is unique, which is why we use the latest technology to design and craft replacement teeth that will comfortably fill in the gaps of your smile. Through the use of CAD/CAM, or Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing, we are able to create custom Prettau® Zirconia replacement teeth that match the size, shape, color, and texture of your original teeth so closely that no one will notice the difference.
Durability for a Lifetime
Dr. Degel was recently recognized for his achievements in the field of implantology in a feature piece in Patient Education Magazine. Written by dental professionals, this prestigious publication is proud to celebrate Dr. Degel's pursuit of excellence, including advanced dental implant options like the Prettau® Zirconia Bridge.
In comparison to other restorative dentistry options, such as traditional removable dentures or hybrid acrylic implant bridges, it’s evident that Prettau® Zirconia is the toughest of the bunch. Acrylic implant options are susceptible to cracking, chipping, and staining over time; however, Prettau® Zirconia replacement teeth are highly durable, making them the longest-lasting option available. With the proper oral hygiene, you’ll have quality replacement teeth for a lifetime.
Advantages and Potential Disadvantages of Prettau® Zirconia Replacement Teeth
Prettau® Zirconia replacement teeth offer far more than simply the aesthetic benefits that will be apparent every time you smile. The advantages of Prettau® Zirconia replacement teeth truly distinguish them among the many fine options available in restorative dentistry:
- Zirconia is 100-percent biocompatible, eliminating the risk of allergic reactions.
- These artificial teeth are extremely resistant to chipping and cracking.
- By replacing missing teeth with Prettau® Zirconia replacement teeth, you will restore your ability to bite, chew, speak, and smile with confidence and ease.
- Zirconia is highly stain resistant.
As with any other dental procedure, there are some potential risks associated with Prettau® Zirconia replacement teeth. Depending on your preferences, the fact that Prettau® Zirconia replacement teeth cannot be removed like traditional dentures may be a disadvantage. In rare cases, the bridge may break; however, this usually only happens if there is a flaw in the design or manufacture of the frame structure. Dr. Degel’s exceptional attention to detail makes such flaws unlikely.
The Cost of Prettau® Zirconia Replacement Teeth
There are various factors that go into determining the cost of Prettau® Zirconia replacement teeth, including the scope of the treatment and the complexity of the patient’s case. During your initial consultation with Dr. Degel, he will analyze your mouth and advise you of your options and the costs associated with each. At Astoria Dental Group, we believe in open and honest communication with our patients, which is why we will only discuss the cost of your treatment after meeting you and evaluating your case.
