What are Prettau® Implant Bridges?

Prettau® implant bridges are a revolutionary approach to restorative dentistry that go beyond traditional dental implants. Unlike conventional porcelain-fused-to-metal bridges, Prettau® bridges offer a natural and lifelike appearance with unparalleled strength, ensuring they can withstand the daily demands of chewing and biting.


At Tharp, Klaus & Kelly, these innovative bridges are custom-designed to suit each patient’s unique oral structure, ensuring a perfect fit and comfortable experience. Prettau® implant bridges can replace single or multiple missing teeth, providing a seamless and permanent solution that blends harmoniously with the surrounding natural teeth.

What Sets our Bridges Apart?

We offer bridges that are made of 100% zirconia. Why is this important? Zirconia is a type of ceramic with a durability superior to stackable porcelain and certain metal alloys. Over time, zirconia will show less wear and tear, compared to other materials and will provide better support to any surrounding prosthetics and implants. Zirconia has become the highest recommended material for bridges and crowns amongst dental professionals. Your zirconia bridge is designed  and milled using the latest technologies in milling and CADCAM. After miling, your bridges is customized to your skin tone and natural tooth color by staining, firing, and glazing to provide the perfect smile. A zirconia implant bridge is an amazing option for patients desiring options other than individual dental implants. While still receiving the benefits for full mouth dental implants, your zirconia fixed implant bridge provides a less invasive alternative. You will leave you appointment confident that your bridge was built to last.

The Dental Implant Process

The journey towards a rejuvenated smile with Prettau® implant bridges at Tharp, Klaus & Kelly involves a comprehensive and patient-centric process.


  1. Initial Consultation: The first step is a detailed consultation with one of the skilled dentists at Tharp, Klaus & Kelly. During this appointment, the dentist will assess the patient’s oral health, review medical history, and discuss specific smile goals. The dentist will also take X-rays and 3D scans to create a precise treatment plan tailored to the patient’s needs.
  2. Implant Placement: Once the treatment plan is finalized, the dental implant placement procedure begins.  The titanium implants are placed into the jawbone to act as sturdy anchors for the Prettau® bridge.
  3. Healing Period: After implant placement, a healing period is necessary to allow the implants to integrate with the jawbone properly. This process, known as osseointegration, usually takes a few months but ensures a strong foundation for the final bridge.
  4. Digital Impression: Tharp, Klaus & Kelly uses advanced digital scanning technology to take precise impressions of the patient’s mouth, eliminating the need for uncomfortable traditional impressions. These digital impressions are then used to design and fabricate the customized Prettau® bridge.
  5. Final Restoration: Once the bridge is ready, you’ll return to our [location] office for the final restoration process. The Prettau® bridge is carefully placed and secured onto the dental implants, creating a beautifully natural and functional smile.
  6. Follow-Up Care: Tharp, Klaus & Kelly emphasizes the importance of regular follow-up appointments to monitor the patient’s oral health and ensure the long-term success of the Prettau® implant bridge.
