Zirconia is the strongest material available for implant-supported prosthetic teeth. The difference in the strength of the material compared to other implants is noticeable every time the patient bites down. As opposed to inferior materials, zirconia teeth provide people with the confidence they need to enjoy eating again, allowing them to bite down without fear of damaging their implants. The material is the best canvas for a natural smile. The color and shape are designed to meet the patient’s preferences. The zirconia teeth designed by New Teeth Now are custom made by our in-house, lab professionals for each patient. The end result is a new smile that looks and feels more like natural teeth.
Zirconia vs. acrylic
While acrylic used to be a standard material used in dental prosthetics, developments in zirconia technology make zirconia teeth the ideal solution for longevity. If you’re interested in teeth that last as long as you do, zirconia teeth are a great investment.
The New Teeth Now in-house lab allows us to custom design your teeth at the same location that we perform your procedure. Our lab professionals have worked directly with our surgeons to create zirconia prosthetics for thousands of satisfied New Teeth Now patients.
Your New Smile Is Ready
At New Teeth Now, your teeth are custom-made with the best material available: zirconia. Many foods are difficult to chew even with healthy, natural teeth. That’s why it’s crucial for your new teeth to be as strong as possible. Not only is zirconia the most durable material available for implants, it’s also chosen for its natural look and feel. Our in-house lab handcrafts thousands of stunning prosthetic teeth for dental implant patients. Your new smile is almost ready. Contact us to design a smile that will last a lifetime.
Zirconia scores an 8.5 on the Mohs Hardness Scale. To put that in perspective, natural tooth enamel scores a 5. Needless to say, your new teeth will be able to hold up to the force of chewing any food as well as daily brushing. When made by qualified lab professionals and placed by experienced oral surgeons, zirconia teeth are designed to last a lifetime.
Some prosthetic teeth are made with an interior metal frame that feels unnaturally heavy. Zirconia, on the other hand, has a weight similar to natural teeth. And while some metals have a high tendency to conduct heat and cold, zirconia has very low thermal conductivity. In short, these teeth are designed to provide a comfortable, natural feel.
Zirconia is naturally a bone-white color. In order to obtain the slight translucency found in natural teeth, porcelain is baked onto the zirconia frame in layers. The result is a more natural aesthetic customized to the color shade of your choice. Our patients share with us how their new teeth help them regain the confidence to attend social gatherings and let their smile shine.
