Generic Zirconia

Generic zirconia combines the esthetics your patients demand with the strength and affordable price you desire. Laboratory 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.
