Zirconia

Bruxzir® Solid Zirconia

BruxZir® Solid Zirconia is a monolithic zirconia crown, bridge, screw-retained implant crown, inlay or onlay with no porcelain overlay. The material is a more esthetic alternative to posterior metal occlusal PFMs or cast gold restorations for demanding situations like bruxers, implant restorations, and areas with limited occlusal space. Complete color penetration all the way through the restorations ensures greater shade consistency and prevents any shade changes after occlusal adjustment.

  • PREP REQUIRMENTS
    • Shoulder preparation not needed, feather edge is okay. It is a conservative preparation similar to full-cast gold, so any preparation with at least 0.5 mm of occlusal space is acceptable.
    • Minimum occlusal reduction of 0.5 mm; 1 mm is ideal.
  • INSTRUCTIONS
    • Adjust BruxZir® Solid Zirconia restorations using a fine-grit diamond with light pressure to avoid potential micro-fractures. A football-shaped bur is most effective for adjusting the occlusal surfaces of posterior teeth and lingual surfaces of anterior teeth.
    • A tapered bur is most effective for adjusting proximal contacts.
    • A round bur is used to adjust a cusp or fossa and for creating endodontic access.
