Z.Ceram - Zirconia Ceramic Restoration

Z.Ceram

Description

Thanks to its excellent physical properties, zirconium oxide is ideal for long-spanned bridges - a genuine innovation in the all-ceramic sector. Zirconia is the first metal-free restorative fabrication procedure that combines traditional production techniques with the high precision of computer aided manufacturing (CAM) processes. Completely cementable, Zirconia is considered to be the strongest all-ceramic material available. With a flexural strength of over 900 Mpa, Zirconia can virtually “squeeze” microcracks together to eliminate the possibility of any fracture propagation. While an excellent choice for single full-coverage crowns, it particularly shines as a bridge material as it can accommodate multiple pontics in a row for placement anywhere in the mouth.

Zirconia is one of the materials which may allow production of reliable multi unit all-ceramic restorations for high-stress areas, such as the posterior region of the mouth.
