Zirconia - is it finally here?
This 70 year old patient presented with a chief complaint of “I don’t like the looks of my front teeth”. His medical history was non-contributory. He reported that he had lost his front tooth more than 30 years ago and the fixed partial denture was placed at that time. Clinical exam revealed a cantilever bridge with a ¾ gold crown abutment on #8 and a resin bonded to gold pontic #9 (Fig 1).
