The Veneered Procera Implant Bridge (PIB)

The Veneered Procera Implant Bridge consists of a zirconium base over which a highly esthetic layer of porcelain is applied. The porcelain adds translucency, depth, and color tones to the opaque zirconium. The biting surfaces are in zirconium to minimize tooth wear or fracture of porcelain. The PIB is a combination of durability and a beautiful porcelain finish.
