Tooth loss is a common dental issue that affects millions of Americans. If you’ve lost teeth due to health issues or dental trauma, you’re not alone. At Elevate Dental Wellness, we offer beautiful, natural-looking restoration options so you can feel like your best self again.
We feature biocompatible, hypoallergenic implant solutions made from zirconia to avoid any nickel or other metal allergies associated with titanium implants. Learn more about our solutions and what makes zirconia dental implants so effective.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a permanent solution that restores missing teeth from root to crown. They look and function just like natural teeth and can last up to a lifetime with proper care.
Thanks to our expert technology, we’re proud to offer zirconia dental implants that allow you to smile with confidence. Dental implants offer several benefits that other tooth replacements can’t match, including:
- Restores jawbone density
- Improves ability to chew with ease
- Unrivaled comfort and stability
- Natural look and feel
- Easy to maintain
- Long-lasting results
Our Implant Solutions
Single & Multi-Tooth Replacement
An implant-supported bridge is perfect for patients looking to replace an entire arch of teeth with gorgeous restorations that look like your natural smile. Unlike traditional bridges, an implant-supported bridge doesn’t rely on your surrounding teeth for support.
Another option for full-arch replacement is snap-in dentures. Unlike traditional dentures, these don’t require a messy, uncomfortable adhesive to stay in place. Instead, they’re supported by durable dental implants for a sturdy foundation, so you don’t have to worry about your dentures sliding around. Imagine being able to speak, eat, and smile without fear of your dentures falling out.
Zirconia Dental Implants: Metal-Free Restorations
Zirconia is a crystal version of the metal zirconium, best-known for its likeness to diamonds. When used in implant dentistry, its color is slightly altered to perfectly match your teeth. Unlike biocompatible titanium implants, zirconia is metal-free and ideal for patients with nickel or other metal allergies.
Both titanium and zirconia implants have been named safe and biocompatible by the FDA, and haven’t shown any adverse effects from placement. At Elevate Dental Wellness, we believe in the benefits of holistic dentistry, and specializing in zirconia implants is one way we provide toxin-free dental care for our patients in the Basalt and Aspen communities.
We proudly use Swiss Dental Solutions and Z-Systems zirconia implants for the highest quality restorations.
Frequently Asked Questions
What types of dental implants are available?
At Elevate Dental Wellness, we feature several options for replacing missing teeth with dental implants. The right option for you can depend on a variety of factors, such as how many teeth you’re replacing.
Whether you’re missing a single tooth or a full arch, our dentists can provide a solution that will deliver the stunning results you expect. Our implant solutions at Elevate Dental Wellness include:
- Single-tooth implants
- Implant-supported bridge
- Snap-in dentures
Can I replace a full arch of teeth with dental implants?
Yes! For patients who are missing a full arch of teeth, we can customize a set of complete dentures just for you and secure them with implants. Implant-supported dentures offer greater comfort and stability than traditional dentures, in addition to stimulating healthy bone growth in your jaw.
If you’re missing all of your teeth, we can even replace both arches with implant-supported dentures.
What’s the difference between titanium and zirconia dental implants?
Typically, dental implants are made from titanium. This material is used because it’s extremely durable. However, zirconia implants have emerged as an advanced alternative that offers the advantage of biocompatibility and durability with additional benefits.
Unlike their titanium counterparts, zirconia implants won’t corrode from water and are unaffected by chemical reactions. They’re also metal-free, making them an ideal option for patients who have nickel and other metal allergies.
How do I know which dental implant solution is right for me?
The best dental implant solution for your smile depends on the specifics of your case. Our dentists will consider several factors as they develop a personalized treatment plan for you, including how many teeth you’re replacing, the density of your jawbone, and the health of your gums.
