BruxZir® Solid Zirconia provides exceptional strength and durability. Bruxzir can be used for nearly every indication and is an excellent alternative to traditional metal-based crowns. This economical restoration will ensure good results particularly where strength outweighs the esthetic requirement. Bruxzir Anterior Ultra Translucent zirconia also available, limited strength, not in bleach shades.
BruxZir zirconia is so versatile, it can be used in almost any situation from singles, bridges with any combination of abutments and pontics, inlay bridges, Maryland type bridges and screw retained implants. Also an esthetic alternative to a PFM with metal occlusion due to limited space.
When esthetic expectations are high and it is important that the restorations match surrounding natural dentition or other existing restorations a fully layered restoration would be preferred.
Shoulder preparation not needed. A mild chamfer or a feather-edge margin is adequate with 1mm buccal, lingual, and occlusal reduction.
For maximum bond strength use a resin cement like RelyX Ultimate, Panavia V5 or Multilink Automix. Before cementing all full-contour zirconia crowns, the interior surface needs to be cleaned with Ivoclean, Ivoclar Vivadent.
Adjustments and polishing: Adjust full-contour zirconia crowns and bridges using fine diamond burrs, water and air spray to keep the restoration cool and to avoid microfractures. Polish full-contour zirconia restorations with the Brasseler Dialite System or similar substitute. For High Shine use the Ziocon-Brite System from DVA with stiff bristle brush or similar substitute.
