Staten Island Dental Practice Now Offers the Prettau Zirconia Implant Bridge By Alex Hecht on June 11, 2014

An Older Couple with Full, Complete SmilesStaten Island, NY - Dr. Alex Hecht and Dr. Jason Hecht are pleased to announce that their practice now offers the Prettau Implant Bridge, a state-of-the-art solution for patients who are missing multiple teeth. Staten Island Aesthetic & Implant Dentist is the only practice in the borough that currently offers the Prettau Zirconia Implant Bridge from their specialty laboratory.

“The Prettau Zirconia Implant Bridge is simply the best possible option for teeth on implants,” Dr. Alex Hecht said. “Knowing everything that I know about dentistry and implants, if I were to lose my teeth tomorrow, Prettau Zirconia Teeth would be my choice.”

About the Prettau Implant Bridge

The Prettau Implant Bridge is a dental appliance that is custom crafted to the patient in order to replace missing teeth. The appliance is supported by dental implants, which are artificial tooth roots surgically embedded into the jawbone and gum tissue.

The Prettau bridges are made from zirconium oxide rather than traditional ceramic materials, offering a number of aesthetic and functional advantages over traditional ceramic bridges and dentures. The Zirconia does not stain or have teeth break off in the way that traditional plastic implant teeth do.

The Artistry of the Prettau Implant Bridge

Improved aesthetics is one of the great advantages of the Prettau Implant Bridge. Cosmetic and restorative dentists tend to blend function and artistry, and the Prettau Implant Bridge is comparable in some ways to a fine work of sculpture. Dr. Hecht even likens the bridge to Michelangelo's David given that both are finely crafted from a single block of material.

“Whereas Michelangelo used stone to carve his David, we use white zirconium oxide to mill the tooth bridge,” Dr. Jason Hecht said. “This material is as strong as having metal teeth, with the benefit of being beautiful and lifelike.”

Prettau Implant Bridges Are Extremely Durable

Thanks to the unique milling and crafting of the Prettau Implant Bridge, these sets of artificial teeth are unlikely to chip, crack, or break from regular use. This means that patients are able to smile with absolute confidence and can also bite and chew without any major worries of damage.

The Concept of “Teeth In a Day”

A testament to the practice's commitment to excellent care, patients can receive a full and healthy set of teeth in just one day, allowing them to smile with a renewed sense of happiness and total wellness.

As Dr. Hecht notes, “It is not uncommon for our patients to walk out of the office with tears of joy due to the dramatic nature of the turnaround that we can provide.”
