About Premierdontics™: Teeth In A Day®, Prettau® Style Bridge Implant Restoration, and All-on-4, 5 or 6 Dental Implants
The Prettau® Style Bridge is a full-arch restoration retained by dental implants for dependable support. Patients can expect their Prettau® Style Bridges to stay securely in place while speaking, laughing, or eating even the hardest or stickiest of foods. Because of the life-like qualities of zirconia, Prettau® Style Bridges are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. Prettau® Style Zirconia milled restorations are only created in select dental laboratories in the United States. Our in-house laboratory, Capital Ceramic LLC utilizes state-of-the-art 5-axis milling technology creating small to large extremely precise zirconia restorations.
Creating the All-on-4, 5 or 6, Implant-Supported Prettau® Style Bridge
Patients will first undergo a comprehensive examination with Dr. Starr. At this time, state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, including the advanced 3-D iCAT scanning device, will collect the information necessary to guide the treatment plan, including the surgical placement of dental implants. A specialist with a multidisciplinary background, Dr. Starr creates and oversees comprehensive treatment plans that involve collaboration with other hand-picked specialists. In working closely with a trusted surgeon, Dr. Starr can help ensure that dental implants are optimally placed to allow him to build a Prettau® Style Zirconia Bridge.
To make certain that each Prettau® Style Bridge fits comfortably, Dr. Starr provides a temporary bridge that is worn prior to placing the permanent bridge. Patients can experience how their restored smiles will look and feel before receiving their permanent restoration, and gain an understanding of how it will enhance the ability to chew and speak. At this time, patients can provide Dr. Starr with feedback so the bridge can be fine-tuned for comfort and fit.
Premierdontics™: Teeth In A Day®, Prettau® Style Bridge Implant Restoration, and All-on-4, 5 or 6 Dental Implants Benefits
Premierdontics™: Teeth In A Day® and Prettau® Style Bridge can be an excellent way to rebuild a smile because:
- Newer Zirconia mimics the look of natural tooth enamel and can be matched to a range of tooth shades.
- Zirconia is one of the most durable materials available in dentistry today. It does not stain, and it does not absorb odors.
- Zirconia will not cause natural teeth to wear when the jaws meet.
- Because the Prettau® Style Bridge is supported by dental implants, the integrity of the jaw bone is preserved. In the absence of tooth roots, dental implants will prevent jaw atrophy.
- With the Prettau® Style Bridge, patients can eat and speak as they please, with the complete confidence that there will be no slippage.
- Finally, they can be more easily cleaned with a tooth brush, dental floss, and other ancillary aids such as proxabrushes and floss threaders.
