Porcelain-fused-to-metal dental crowns (PFM) have a metal shell on which is fused a layer of porcelain in a high heat oven. We offer PFM with non precious and semi precious alloys as well as 40%, 75% an 85% high noble alloys.
BruxZir® 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.
Cubex zirconia is a highly biocompatible material with outstanding transparency. The DD cubeX² system combines the known positive properties of zirconia with a significant increase in translucency as it is known only from lithium disilicate. In other words, it has the strength of zirconia, and the translucency of an emax, making it the perfect restoration for anteriors as well as posteriors.
Zirconium crowns have quickly become the preferred material for dental crowns. Zirconium is a very strong substance that can endure wear and tear of everyday use. When looking at Zirconium crowns from an aesthetic point it is clear and very similar to a natural tooth and reflects light the same way.
Layered zirconia restorations combine both the highest esthetics and the strength and flexibility you need for all posterior and anterior cases. The zirconia substructure typically has a flexural strength of 1200 MPa, comparing favorably to traditional porcelain fused to metal crowns.
This crown is made from a single block of lithium disilicate ceramic: this is a top grade material which has been harvested for its toughness, durability and opaque qualities which makes it a highly prized crown. Plus it is considered a breakthrough in dental crown technology.
You can achieve even better esthetics with a layered crown. IPS e.max layered offers the high translucence and lifelike esthetics you look for in an anterior crown.
