Zirlite® Solid Zirconia

Monolithic zirconia restorations have taken over the industry! This is due to their superior strength and relatively low cost. At Method, we have taken this opportunity to team up with one of the largest dental zirconia manufacturers in the world to offer our unique blend of zirconia.

Zirlite maintains the strength that you would expect from a monolithic zirconia restoration while simultaneously increasing light transmission and shade consistency.

  • Prep Requirements
    • 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 Zirlite 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.
