  • Optimized microstructure of new translucent zirconia provides higher translucency combined with flexural strength in excess of 680 Mpa, making it ideal for a variety of anterior or single-unit posterior restorations
  • Excellent long-term stability and options for full-contour restorations or substructures for layering, plus a flexible bonding/cementation protocol to create an efficient workflow
  • The additional translucency compared with previous zirconia materials yields a more vital restoration while achieving the brightness of a “Hollywood Smile”

The necessity for a combination of durability and esthetics is often the driving force behind the restorative decision-making process. New translucent zirconia materials combine exceptional flexural strength with optimal optical properties to create durable, vital restorations in both the anterior and posterior. They are good choices in situations requiring more strength for patients that desire a bright color/high-value all-ceramic restoration but also want natural translucency.

Learn more about how this advanced material option can effectively replace many PFM and full gold applications. In considering your zirconia choice, take advantage of your laboratory resources, their specific knowledge of material properties, and access to digital technology to make the most informed decisions for your patients and practice.
