This patient received All-On-4 dental implants in 2010. The teeth that were fitted at the time of surgery were made from high impact acrylic. After 3 years in function, the acrylic material started to absorb some staining, as seen in the before shot on the left, and this patient elected to upgrade to a material that is more durable and stain resistant. The shot on the right illustrates the Zirconia teeth.

All-On-4 Dental Implants with Zirconia-Porcelain teeth, a durable long-term solution.
Four fixtures are visible in each jaw on this x-ray. The dense white supra-structures are the zirconia bridges. The whiteness represents the density, which in turn reflects the durability and strength of Zirconia.
