KDZ Bruxer® Aesthetic

Latest advancement in high translucency monolithic zirconia crowns

The KDZ Bruxer® Aesthetic is the latest addition to the KDZ Bruxer product offering from Keating Dental Arts. This highly esthetic restorative material is designed specifically for the anterior region of the mouth. Exhibiting an average flexural strength of 650 MPa, it incorporates high translucency and color that matches natural dentition. The KDZ Bruxer Aesthetic is a strong, esthetic solution for all anterior cases. It is kind to the opposing dentition and requires less reduction than other all-ceramic materials.

With translucency like lithium disilicate and strength like zirconia, the KDZ Bruxer Aesthetic zirconia crown meets and exceeds the predefined criteria as specified in ISO 6872 strength requirements, making this material 60% stronger than lithium disilicate (400 MPa) materials. This highly biocompatible material reaches 49% translucency at the sintering temperature of 1450° C.

The KDZ Bruxer Aesthetic is ideal for:

  • Anterior and premolar crowns
  • Three-unit anterior bridges with one pontic
  • A more conservative preparation than disilicate—0.8 mm is required; 1.25 mm is ideal
