If you are looking for a tooth replacement solution but do not want to use dentures, dental implants may be the answer for you. Scott Cold, DDS, your dentist in Salt Lake City, provides an alternative to dentures with NU Teeth Now™ dental implants. The implants are small metal posts inserted into the jaw that support a zirconia implant bridge, a permanent solution to dentures. You can find this dental solution at our dentistry near you in Salt Lake City.
A zirconia implant bridge replaces dentures and natural teeth. It stays in place permanently after it is fixed to dental implants. It looks like natural teeth and gums, but unlike dentures, there is no discomfort with the fit, and there is no fear of breaking or chipping. Dental implants produce a feeling that most closely resemble natural teeth. Dr. Scott Cold, your dentist in Salt Lake City, provides this treatment with NU Teeth Now™, a smile makeover treatment. Dr. Cold can fix the NU Teeth Now™ zirconia implant bridge, a denture alternative, to the dental implants in a safe and comfortable setting in just one day.
Dental appliances are usually made of acrylic, which is strong, but it cannot compete with zirconia. Dentures made from zirconia are milled from a solid piece of zirconia, which lowers their risk of breaking or fracturing. On the other hand, acrylic is more easily damaged. The zirconia is then hand-colored and polished to produce a natural-looking restoration.
The entire procedure to have implants placed and ready to use usually takes several months. This time is needed to allow the dental implants to fuse with the jawbone. This is what creates the strong foundation for the zirconia implant bridge. Surgery will be needed to have the implants inserted into the jawbone. After a healing period, you will return to see Dr. Cold in Salt Lake City to have the zirconia implant bridge fixed to the implants.
