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 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.

  • Zirconia up to 1,132 MPa versus 1,200+ MPa for typical zirconia
  • Three to six times the fracture toughness (aka K1C value) of typical zirconia
  • Conventional cementation using non-expanding resin modified glass ionomer
  • Resin-Modified Glass Ionomer – Crowns/Bridges (not veneers)
    • FugiCEM 2, GC America
    • RelyX Luting Plus, 3M ESPE

***In general, lithium disilicate restorations are etched before they are placed. Before restorations are placed with adhesive or self-adhesive cementation materials, they are conditioned with Silane.***
