CROWNS AND BRIDGES
Quality Restorations for a Strong and Radiant Smile
• LINDA B.
Zirconia crowns are made of a white metal related to titanium, called zirconium oxide. Along with being well received by human tissues (a property called biocompatibility), zirconium offers superior strength to porcelain crowns and, like metal crowns, is able to withstand the immense force your jaws produce during chewing. Zirconia crowns are always crafted by a highly trained technician in a dental laboratory, which creates their exceptional comfort and fit. The extra time, care, and skill that goes into each zirconia crown ensures that you get the most satisfying results for your valuable time and money.
Made of zirconia, porcelain, or metal, a dental bridge is a custom dental restoration that suspends one or more prosthetic teeth (called pontics) between two or more dental crowns, which are securely bonded to the natural teeth or dental implants that neighbor the gap (called abutment teeth). To support your smile’s function and beauty, Dr. Harrison only uses the highest quality materials and dental laboratories and will work closely with you to craft a dental bridge that meets your desired outcomes and needs.
