In this anterior case, BruxZir crowns are prescribed.

To handle the forces of an extended biologic length required by the severe bone loss in this anterior case, BruxZir crowns are prescribed.

PFM repair

The precise fit and limited space requirements make BruxZir crowns a simple and effective alternative to PFM repair.

The fit of the BruxZir crown on this engaging titanium base

The fit of the BruxZir crown on this engaging titanium base is comparable to the interproximal fit in the mouth.

The best option was full-coverage anterior BruxZir crown. The best option was full-coverage anterior BruxZir crown.

This patient had a number of existing PFM restorations in the anterior, but teeth #8 and #9 had a previous root canal and a lingual fracture next to the access openings. It was decided that the best option was full-coverage anterior BruxZir crown.

Precision-milling of a BruxZir prosthetic delivers an ideal fit

Precision-milling of a BruxZir prosthetic delivers an ideal fit, even in tight spaces.

A high-strength BruxZir bridge was prescribed, providing the patient with the best combination of strength and esthetics.

Because her PFM restorations had fractured previously, a high-strength BruxZir bridge was prescribed, providing the patient with the best combination of strength and esthetics.

Tthe esthetics of a BruxZir restoration are far closer to the live dentition than are those of cast-gold. The esthetics of a BruxZir restoration are far closer to the live dentition than are those of cast-gold.

For patients concerned with lifelike esthetics there is no comparison. As seen in this side-by-side, the esthetics of a BruxZir restoration are far closer to the live dentition than are those of cast-gold.

This patient required an onlay to replace a broken cusp

When this patient required an onlay to replace a broken cusp, cast gold was suggested but the patient declined.

The translucency of this BruxZir crown's cusps help the restoration blend seamlessly with the surrounding dentition.

The BruxZir bridge has acceptable esthetics.

As you can see in the after photos, the BruxZir bridge has acceptable esthetics, although it won't be mistaken for IPS Empress® anytime soon!

A BruxZir Solid Zirconia restoration was chosen.

A BruxZir Solid Zirconia restoration was chosen because of its mix of high flexural strength and lifelike esthetics next to natural dentition.

The implant with temporary abutment is going to be replaced by this zirconia-with-titanium-base crown. As seen here, the transition from titanium to BruxZir material is nearly seamless.

endontically treated molar endontically treated molar

This endontically treated molar had a large amalgam and several fractures, necessitating a full-coverage BruxZir crown.

BruxZir Solid Zirconia is a great choice as a replacement crown.

When a patient generates enough occlusal force to break a PFM, BruxZir Solid Zirconia is a great choice as a replacement crown.

BruxZir Solid Zirconia

Focus on lifelike translucency in the anterior often overshadows the superior natural contours that BruxZir Solid Zirconia delivers in the posterior.

The final restoration demonstrates how well the BruxZir Shaded formulation achieves the color and translucency of the patient's natural dentition. The final restoration demonstrates how well the BruxZir Shaded formulation achieves the color and translucency of the patient's natural dentition.

Factoring in the grayer, more translucent incisal third of the patient's natural teeth is an important consideration in choosing the appropriate shade. The final restoration demonstrates how well the BruxZir Shaded formulation achieves the color and translucency of the patient's natural dentition.

The superior fit, natural margins, and lifelike contours translate to an esthetically pleasing final restoration in the mouth.
