Our Treatment Process
If you want to restore your smile with a dental bridge or dentures, the first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Munro. He’ll use this visit to examine your entire mouth in detail and determine which solution is the best treatment for you. He’ll also explain any supplemental procedures that will be involved in your treatment, if necessary.
Once he’s sure that you’re ready, Dr. Munro will place four to six dental implants directly in your jaw. He’ll also provide a temporary restoration so you don’t have to live with gaps in your smile while the implants heal.
As you recover, we’ll use the information from our iTero® 3D scanner to custom-design your Prettau Zirconia bridge or dentures. When your restoration is ready, you’ll return to our office so Dr. Munro can secure it to your implants. Depending on your needs, we can restore up to a full arch of missing teeth with these solutions.

How much do Prettau Zirconia dentures cost?
Although Prettau Zirconia dentures aren’t as affordable as traditional dentures, many patients agree that the extra investment is worth it. The zirconia material is much more durable than porcelain, ensuring your dentures will function more like natural teeth and last longer. The extra-translucent appearance will also help your smile stand out in a crowd.
The cost of Prettau Zirconia dentures depends on several different factors including the number of teeth you’re replacing and the number of implants required for the procedure. To get an accurate price estimate, call our office and schedule a consultation with Dr. Munro.
Why should I choose a zirconia restoration instead of porcelain?
If you want a tooth replacement that will last you for many years to come, zirconia restorations offer unmatched strength and durability. They typically last longer than porcelain restorations and they have a bright, natural appearance.
For added convenience, zirconia is a bio-inert material that’s resistant to corrosion, meaning that it won’t ever trigger chemical reactions of any kind. Zirconia crowns and bridges also require less removal of your tooth enamel, allowing you to preserve more of your natural tooth structure.
