Zirconia ≠ Zirconia: But What Makes the Difference? Part 1
Part 1: Material Properties/Quality
Thursday, November 29, 2018
Zirconia forms the ideal basis for all-ceramic restorations, because this material has outstanding properties that hardly any other material can match.
In-house production allows manufacturers to have a greater influence on the process-relevant material parameters of zirconia.
Testing all the material properties that are important for dental laboratories guarantees highly esthetic and reproducible results.
Compared to other dental ceramic materials, zirconium oxide is the absolute leader in terms of mechanical properties. In addition, its white, tooth-like basic shade makes this material the perfect basis for highly esthetic, all-ceramic dentures. And zirconium oxide offers excellent biocompatibility.
What makes this zirconia so suited for the CAD/CAM-based production of high-quality and esthetic restorations? Part 1 of this eBook explores the material properties and quality of the Zolid DNA Generation comprehensive all-ceramic product portfolio of zirconia blanks, and how they benefit your laboratory’s products.
