Zirconia restorations are currently one of the most advanced materials available in the market recognized by clinicians seeking to provide patients with best treatment outcome. Clinical grade zirconia has been used throughout the dental industry for over a decade, but the interest level has accelerated due to its versatility as well as the constantly increasing cost of noble alloys, especially gold. Tosoh's yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) powder is the is a unique advanced ceramic which exhibits superior mechanical properties such as high strength and flexibility. As a technological breakthrough, YSZ surpasses the strength limitations of traditional fine ceramics. Heat insulating properties and oxygen-ion conductivity indicate zirconia has potential for use in a wide variety of applications - everything from telecommunications to the new energy of the future and environmentally beneficial products.
Zirconia is ideal for anterior and posterior crowns, as well as for bridges. There are two different types of zirconia.
Higher translucency zirconia is best used on anterior bridges of up to three units. The natural translucency and opalescence make this material perfect for anterior and posterior crowns, but it is not ideal for bleach shades, inlays and onlays and for veneers.
Monolithic or layered zirconia is stronger and can be safely used on large span bridges, as well as for inlays and onlays while still providing excellent esthetics. This material is ideal for masking heavily discolored preps and is suitable for restoring dental implants. The higher opacity of this material makes it unsuitable for veneers and it is not ideal for anterior crowns.
I dent Full-Strength Zirconia is a monolithic zirconia material with out porcelain overlay is used for
- Crowns, bridges, screw-retained implant crowns, inlays and onlays.
- It provides a durable, more esthetic alternative to metal occlusal PFMs or cast gold restorations for demanding situations like bruxers, implant restorations and areas with limited occlusal space.
- They exhibit improved translucency and color similar to natural dentition. Complete color penetration all the way through the restorations ensures greater shade consistency and prevents any shade change after occlusal adjustment.
Therefore, a Full-Strength I dent Zirconia restorations offers dentists a great solution for their most functionally demanding cases which is Engineered to withstand the strongest challenges of the oral environment.
Zirconia restorations offer clinicians several advantages and the dental clinicians are choosing to scan tooth preparations rather than taking conventional tray impressions. We utilize those scans to create precision-made restorations relatively easily. RR dental lab uses I dent Zirconia which has created superior solutions for many different dental procedures that include; Zirconia-Based Dental Posts, Zirconia-Based Crown and Bridge, Zirconia-Based Implant Abutments e.t.c. When compared to other dental materials such a PFM (porcelain-fused-to-metal) or Titanium Zirconia has many benefits such as
Natural Looking Smile
Reliability and Durability
Safer for Patients
Restorations are precision-made using CADCAM technology, reducing the possibility of infection.
Resistant to hot and cold, which reduces hypersensitivity
They can mask underlying tooth discoloration, implant abutments, and metal cores
Gum recession will not affect the esthetics, and marginal discoloration will be avoided
