BruxZir Solid Zirconia

 October 16, 2013

Bruxzir – All Zirconia crowns and bridges are fabricated using the same state-of-the-art scan and mill technology as our successful Forte YZr crowns, but instead of layering porcelain over the zirconia, we mill Bruxzir to full contour. Bruxzir is more Brawn than Beauty. Bruxzir is a monolithic material ideal to replace posterior full-gold crowns and metal occlusals for patients who are leery of placing alloy in the mouth. These crowns are very strong, made of a monolithic zirconia. Bruxzir is available in all the classic shades, and achieved by dipping the zirconia prior to sintering and then staining and glazing for a final shade match.
