At PDA, we routinely produce single tooth as well as multi-unit bridge restorations utilizing zirconium as our substructure. We offer zirconium restorations with veneered porcelain, monolithic/full-zirconium. We are also able to incorporate rests to support removable prosthesis in zirconium restorations.
Zirconium is very strong and durable it provides you and your patients a cost effective alternative to PFM restorations. This material is also completely biocompatible.
Zirconia ceramic is a monolithic solid zirconia restoration that is typically six times stronger than e.max. More brawn than beauty, zirconia ceramic is virtually chip-proof. These restorations exhibit improved translucency and color similar to natural dentition, making them a restorative option in the anterior as well.
Layered Zirconia combines the esthetics your patients demand with the strength and affordability you desire. Lab tests have shown the fracture toughness and flexural strength of zirconia are significantly higher than that of alumina or any other all-ceramic. With Zirconia there is no metal to show through the ceramic and no unsightly black lines at the gingival margin. This esthetic restoration is built on a coping composed of zirconium oxide, one of the strongest and most biocompatible ceramic materials. After being milled using CAD/CAM technology, the final restoration achieves superb intimacy of fit and beautiful, translucent pearlescence. Layered Zirconia is indicated for individual crowns, splinted crowns and bridges up to 14 units anywhere in the mouth. Conventionally cement with resin ionomers.
