Q. What are the different materials that are used with this procedure?

A. Once the dental implants are healed there are two material options that can be selected as the final prosthesis. The first type of prosthesis is called “resin/titanium” where the teeth and the base are made out of resin where they are reinforced by a titanium metal bar internally. The alternative material is called  “Zirconia” where the teeth and the substructure is milled out of a Zirconia single diamond block and is baked, sintered, and finished.
