Upper and lower thimble bridge
This full mouth rehabilitation was fabricated using ZirkonZahn milled substructures and ZirkonZahn designed and milled individual zirconia units on the upper and LL4 – LR4 zirconia units on the lower. The lower posterior units were fabricated using breCAM.HIPC.
With the lower posterior units being sacrificial, this avoids any chipping and or damage to the upper restorations. Another benefit to using a resin-based material in the lower is that it avoids the harsh impact as the teeth meet.
