BruxZir® Crowns & Bridges

BruxZir® Solid Zirconia is a monolithic zirconia crown, bridge, screw-retained implant crown, inlay or onlay with no porcelain overlay. First launched as being "More Brawn Than Beauty," the material was originally intended to provide a durable, more esthetic alternative to posterior metal occlusal PFMs or cast gold restorations for demanding situations like bruxers, implant restorations and areas with limited occlusal space. Now, thanks to the new BruxZir Shaded formulation, BruxZir restorations exhibit improved translucency and color similar to natural dentition, making them a restorative option in the anterior as well. Complete color penetration all the way through the restorations ensures greater shade consistency and prevents any shade changes after occlusal adjustment.

Designed and milled using CAD/CAM technology, BruxZir Solid Zirconia is sintered for 2.0 hours at 1,530 degrees Celsius to achieve optimum strength. The final BruxZir crown or bridge is then glazed to a smooth surface. BruxZir Solid Zirconia crowns & bridges are backed by Glidewell Dental Lab's seven-year free replacement warranty.

Indications

BruxZir Solid Zirconia is indicated for crowns, bridges, implants, inlays and onlays, screw-retained implant crowns and full-arch implant prostheses. It is an esthetic alternative to PFM metal occlusal/lingual or full-cast restorations. The chip proof durability of a BruxZir restoration is ideal for bruxers who have broken natural teeth or previous PFM restorations. BruxZir Solid Zirconia is also ideal when the patient lacks the preparation space for a PFM.

Patient Benefits

  • Resistant to chipping because it is made of solid zirconia with no porcelain overlay
  • Glazed to a smooth surface to reduce plaque accumulation
