BruxZir® Full-Strength Solid Zirconia

BruxZir® Full-Strength Solid Zirconia is a monolithic zirconia crown, bridge, screw-retained implant crown, inlay or onlay with no porcelain overlay. First launched as being "More Brawn Than Beauty," the material was originally intended to provide a durable, more esthetic alternative to posterior metal occlusal PFMs or cast gold restorations for demanding situations like bruxers, implant restorations and areas with limited occlusal space. Now, thanks to the new BruxZir Shaded formulation, BruxZir restorations exhibit improved translucency and color similar to natural dentition, making them a restorative option in the anterior as well. Complete color penetration all the way through the restorations ensures greater shade consistency and prevents any shade changes after occlusal adjustment.

Designed and milled using CAD/CAM technology, BruxZir Full-Strength Solid Zirconia is sintered for 2.5 hours at 1,580 degrees Celsius to achieve optimum strength. The final BruxZir crown or bridge is then glazed to a smooth surface. BruxZir Full-Strength Solid Zirconia crowns & bridges are back by a seven-year free replacement warranty.

Prep Requirements

Anterior full-coverage crowns require a chamfer with 1.5 mm facial reduction, 1.5 mm lingual contact clearance, 1.5 mm incisal reduction 1.25 mm reduction at the gingival margin with rounded internal line angles; or a shoulder with 1.0 mm lingual reduction, 2.0 mm incisal reduction, 1.5 mm labial reduction, 1.0 mm 360 degree rounded shoulder.
Posterior full-coverage crowns require a chamfer margin with 2.0 mm occlusal reduction, 1.5 mm buccal and lingual reduction with rounded internal line angles; or a shoulder with 2.0 mm occlusal reduction, 1.5 mm buccal and lingual reduction and 1.25 mm gingival margin reduction with rounded internal line angles.
Chamfer Margins – Correct preparation of the chamfer margins interproximally allows the appropriate bulk of porcelain
