About Dental Bridges
The Prettau Zirconia bridge is one of the newest advances in teeth replacement, using zirconia instead of porcelain for a more durable and more attractive result. At Smile Design Dental Spa in Mount Kisco and Brewster, NY, board-certified cosmetic and general dentist Dr. Stacie Calian helps patients restore their smile with dental bridges by Prettau Zirconia. Each Prettau bridge is custom made to fit the patient's mouth for a secure fit and natural looking results. The Prettau bridge is made with strong zironcia, which resists grinding and other wear for a longer lasting solution than porcelain, ceramic, or metal bridges. Dr. Calian also offer FirstFit™ Bridge for minimally invasive restorations.

What to Expect
Preparing and placing a Prettau Zirconia dental bridge at Smile Design Dental Spa only takes one appointment. Using the in-office ICAT scanner, Dr. Calian can assess and plan the patient's treatment. The bridge will be designed and created while the patient waits, then placed by Dr. Calian. The dentist will check and adjust the bridge to give the patient their best fit, but the patient may need to return in a few weeks to have their fit and bite re-checked.
Dental bridges can last 5 – 15 years, or longer with proper home came and regular exams and cleanings by the dentist. Patients can keep their bridges and natural teeth healthy by brushing twice a day, flossing, and using an antiseptic mouthwash daily. Patients should make annual dental exams and bi-annual dental cleanings with their dentist to ensure the bridge is clean and in good condition.
The cost of a Prettau Zirconia bridge will vary greatly based on the patient's needs. A zirconia bridge is more durable than a porcelain bridge, so the long term cost is generally less for a Prettau Zirconia bridge. Most dental insurance carriers will cover some or part of the cost of the bridge, so the front office will consult with the patient’s insurance to get a better estimate of the patient’s out-of-pocket costs. The cost of the bridge will include the appointments for the impressions and fitting, plus any follow up visits needed to adjust the bite and fit.
