Zirconia: Facts and Misconceptions Gary Alex, DMD
Zirconia has many positive attributes that render it highly suitable for use as a dental restorative, including its high flexural strength and fracture toughness. Depending on the requirements of the case and clinician preferences, zirconia restorations can be bonded or conventionally cemented. Protocols for its optimal use in the placement of restorations, including sandblasting to optimize the restoration surface for improved bonding, judicious use of cleaning solutions and primers, and selection of ideal cementation and bonding materials for use with zirconia are described in this article.
