Our expert technicians can work with you to provide the correct Zirconia material for all of your patients.

Certain cases require different types of Zirconia.  For example, an esthetic anterior single unit may require the use of the most translucent Zirconia.  However, for a long span posterior bridge you would need a much stronger Zirconia.  A single unit posterior crown may require a Zirconia that combines esthetics and strength.  

For the strength of Zirconia with the esthetics of porcelain, we also offer a cutback and put a thin layer of porcelain on some cases to provide a custom esthetic option for your patient. We combine porcelain overlay with expertly crafted custom staining for the perfect solution. 

 

Indications

Translucent (Anterior and Posterior Single Units and Bridges)

  • 900-1100 MPa
  • FDA Registered

High Translucency (Cosmetic Zirconia for Anterior and Posterior Restorations)

  • 650-800 MPa
  • FDA Registered

 

Preparation Requirements for Zirconia Crowns & Bridges

Shoulder preparation not needed.  It is a conservative preparation similar to full-cast gold, so any preparation with at least 0.5 mm of occlusal space is accepted.

Minimum occlusal reduction of 0.5 mm; 1 mm is ideal.

For Anterior restorations, a minimum occlusal reduction of 0.8 mm; 1.25 mm is ideal.
