Zirconium fused bridges are a number of crowns fused together, made of zirconium, and fused to a porcelain outer shell. They can be used to replace any number of teeth. Zirconium fused bridges are prefered by customers who need their teeth to look as real as possible and are willing to spend a little bit more in order to achieve this aim. The crowns that make up the bridge will be the shape and color of the teeth that they will be replacing. The cost of a bridge of this sort depends on how many units will be on the bridge, i.e: how many teeth the bridge will replace. The cost of a single crown of this material is 487 GBP. We do give a discount for patients who are replacing a lot of teeth. The lowest possible price is for when you get more than 21 units, then the price of an individual crown will be 347 GBP per unit.
These bridges are very high end and have the same expected life span as our regular, metal fused bridges, however, they are subject to the same 5 year manufacturer’s guarantee as our standard metal based bridges. That is, if the bridge fails in any way due to a manufacturing error than we will refund the bridge or replace it with one of equal value. These bridges are also usually good for 15-20 years, but this of course depends on the amount of care taken. If the bridge has been damaged due to improper use, such as damaging from bruxism or from chewing on things other than food, or on food that is too hard, such as walnut shells, or as a result of fighting, playing sports or horsing around, alcoholism or smoking, than the warranty will not apply and you will have to get a new one.
