Zir-MAX.M® by Burbank Dental Laboratory Inc.


Burbank Dental Laboratory Inc.

Zir-MAX.M meets and exceeds clinicians’ requirements for a posterior all-ceramic restoration. Some have labeled yttria-stabilized zirconia “ceramic steel,” and Zir-MAX.M falls right in line with that analogy, with a compressive strength of 850 MPa. That is nearly double the strength of the strongest pressed ceramic and up to eight times stronger than feldspathic porcelains.

Feedback from Burbank Dental Laboratory’s clients and from clinical evaluators has established Zir-MAX.M as the most esthetic full zirconia on the market. What contributes to Zir-MAX.M’s superior cosmetic appeal?

  • Its zirconia formulation is 25% more translucent than other zirconia materials
  • Color formulas were developed after more than 7 years of refinement
  • Polishing strategies that incorporate a combination of glazed and polished surfaces, providing optimal esthetics and wear characteristics

Zir-MAX.M may be used in most all applications for which PFM would be used. Zir-MAX-L (layered zirconia) is highly recommended for use in anterior cosmetic zones. Restorations may also be mixed monolithic/full-contour zirconia and layered units to accommodate mixed strength and cosmetic needs.

Zir-MAX.M restorations are the ideal restoration for your patients that demand esthetics and durability but are on today’s budgets.
