Prettau® Zirconia Bridges and Dentures in Pembroke, ON
For patients missing more than one tooth, traditional dental implants aren’t always the best treatment option. Replacing several teeth with individual implants can be costly and time-consuming. That’s why Dr. Munro recommends securing a bridge or dentures with multiple implants for a stable solution.
We’re proud to feature Prettau Zirconia restorations at Parkview Dental. Explore our guide to learn how our bridges and dentures can restore your smile.

Our Implant-Supported Bridges & Dentures Treatment Process
The first step to your new smile is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Munro. During this visit, he’ll examine your teeth, gums, and jawbone to determine the best solution for you. If you suffer from jawbone deterioration or gum recession, he can address these issues with one or more supplemental procedures.
Once he signs off that you’re ready, Dr. Munro will place four to six dental implants directly in your jaw. After the fixtures are stable, he’ll attach a temporary bridge or dentures to fill the gaps in your smile while your mouth heals.
During your recovery, we’ll use 3D images from our iTero® scanner to custom-design your Prettau Zirconia bridge or dentures. Once your restoration is complete, Dr. Munro will secure it to your implants for a permanent and natural-looking solution.
