Zirconia Crowns and Bridges
Zirconia (or Zirconium dioxide, also known as Zirconium oxide) is the newest addition to the family of dental ceramics. It is partially stabilised with yttrium and made into Zirconia blanks through a mechanical process.
This process lends the material the desired characteristics of high flexural strength, stability and fracture toughness. These biotechnical characteristics result in high quality crowns, bridges
and implants with excellent biocompatibility and aesthetic appearance.
By using the latest Zirconzahn CAD/CAM technology, we create zirconia crowns and bridges that deliver on price, fit, strength and aesthetics. Our Zirconia crowns and bridges offer exceptional strength,
aesthetics, marginal fit, biocompatibility, and beauty that blends naturally with surrounding dentition.
What is Zirconia?
Zirconia (ZrSiO4) is a mineral belonging to the mineral class of Silicates. Zirconium dioxide (ZrO2) is a compound of the element zirconium occurring in nature and has already been used for 10-15 years
in the prosthetic dentistry. It is partially stabilized by yttrium and enriched with aluminium. This results into positive characteristics such as high bending strength (>1400 MPa*), hardness (1200 HV*)
and a Weibull module of 15,84 (Values of Zirkonzahn ICE Zirconia Translucent).
Where is it used?
In addition to its high resistance Zirconia is fully biocompatible. That is why it is increasingly used in the medical field (auditory, finger and hip prostheses) and in dentistry (pins, crowns and bridges
restorations, implants). It has already been used in dentistry for over 40 years. The white basic colour of Zirconia, the possibility of colouring in dentin colours and its biotechnological characteristics
enable the production of biocompatible, high-quality and esthetical dental and implant reconstructions.
