A zirconium bridge is considered a top quality type of bridge which is stronger, durable and visually appealing as compared to other types of bridges. Zirconia bridges are made from zirconium oxide, a strong, safe dental ceramic. It has a translucent appearance and matches with your other teeth. The body does not negatively react to or reject the zirconia bridge, so you do not need to worry about the bridge irritating your mouth. The main advantages are a strong, stable and great looking bridge which blends in well with the rest of your teeth. Plus the material used to fabricate this bridge is ‘biocompatible’ which means that is kind to living tissue within your body and will not cause any ill effects, e.g. an allergic reaction. Less preparation is needed which refers to the process you undergo before the crown is fitted. Your dentist reshapes the tooth, removing a tiny sliver which enables a better fit between crown and tooth. But minimal tooth reduction is required for a zirconia crown.
