Zirconia is an advanced type of dental ceramic.
Zirconia bridges are virtually as strong as metal. They also come in a wide range of shades, and a dentist can select a color that is a near-perfect match to a patient’s smile.
In addition, zirconia is slightly translucent, and therefore it can reflect light much like dental enamel.
Thanks to this unique chemical makeup, zirconia bridges are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
