Zirconia Restorations - On Site Milling

Zirlux FC-2 not only offers technicians and clinicians an esthetic alternative to the low esthetics of metal restorations but also an alternative to the high minimum thicknesses and bonding requirements of traditional glass-ceramics. As a simple demonstration of the strength of Zirlux FC-2, two identical crowns can be produced using CAD/CAM technology (one feldspathic, one Zirlux FC-2). Subsequently, a simple load-to-failure test can be performed to demonstrate the difference in strength. An Instron machine is used to slowly add an increasing level of force until each respective crown breaks. The load applied at failure is measured.

Overview

Crown & Bridge:
  • Presstige (All Porcelain) Crown & Veneers
  • Zirlux FC-2 (Full Contour) Crowns, Veneers, Inlays, Onlays and Multi-unit Bridges
  • Bruxir Anterior (full Contour) Antereior Crowns, Veneers, Inlays and Single Pontic Anterior Bridges
  • Titanium and Zirconia Custom Abutments

Wear is largely a function of surface roughness. A polished Zirlux FC-2 surface provides a strong yet smooth surface for opposing dentition to function against.

If adjustments are made after try-in of the restoration, it is important to polish the adjusted area to ensure a smooth occlusal surface. Contact Henry Schein Dental to discuss available polishing systems for Zirlux FC-2 restorations.

Additionally, using a traditional porcelain furnace, it is possible to polish and reglaze a Zirlux FC-2 restoration after adjustments have been made. Zirlux FC-2 Glaze Paste is a unique high fusing glaze that contains fine leucite particles to maximize chemical durability. Contact your laboratory for the appropriate firing parameters and Zahn Dental to purchase Zirlux FC-2 Glaze.

BruxZir® Anterior Solid Zirconia

BruxZir® Anterior is the latest advancement in the BruxZir Solid Zirconia product line. This highly esthetic restorative material is designed specifically to satisfy the esthetic and functional requirements of the anterior region of the mouth. Exhibiting an average flexural strength of 650 MPa with translucency and color similar to natural dentition, BruxZir Anterior is an ideal, esthetic solution for your anterior cases. In addition to its esthetics, BruxZir Anterior requires less reduction than monolithic glass ceramic restorations and is kind to natural opposing dentition during occlusal and parafunctional activity. What’s more, BruxZir Anterior restorations are designed and milled using CAD/CAM technology to ensure a precise fit.

Indications
BruxZir Anterior restorations exceed the ISO strength requirements for cemented all-ceramic restorations and are ideal for anterior and premolar cases. Indications include single-unit crowns and bridges with one pontic. Prep requirements are more conservative than competitors in its class with only 0.8 mm of reduction required though 1.25 mm is ideal.

Patient Benefits
