FAQ

How many appointments are required?

After your initial consultation, there are as few as 1-2 appointments in the entire process.

Will I need any bone grafting?

The TeethNow process virtually eliminates the need for bone-grafting in most patients, however, it may be required for patients with extreme bone-loss.

How long will I be without teeth?

Overnight. Your extractions are performed and implants are placed on the first day, and you get a chance to heal overnight. The following day, your customized, lab-produced temporary bridge is attached to your implants, and you leave with a beautiful smile.

How soon until I get my final bridge?

You’ll wear your provisional bridge for 3 to 6 months while your implants stabilize and you become perfectly accustomed to a full-arch of teeth and gums.

What materials are used in making my bridge?

Your final bridge is custom milled from a solid piece of Zirconia. It is hand-crafted to your unique smile specifications and natural looking color shades are permanently absorbed into the bridge prior to furnace curing and final polishing.

How long is my bridge going to last?

Your Zirconia bridge is designed to last a lifetime.

Will my bridge ever become discolored or attract and retain odors?

Zirconia is non-porous, so it doesn’t stain, discolor, or retain odors. You care for this bridge just like natural teeth. Other bridge materials such as acrylics with porcelain denture teeth attract both stains and odors.

What is the chance that my bridge will chip, crack or break and need to be replaced?

Chances are extremely rare. Studies have shown the chances of chipping, cracking, or breaking are 0.44%.

Will my bridge weaken or wear down from chewing and talking?

Your Zirconia final bridge is not only extremely resistant to chipping, cracking and breaking – Its industry-leading durability shows no weakening or wear from chewing and talking, even in patients who grind their teeth.
