When it's time for a new dental crown, many people want strong, esthetic restorations that look natural and don't break. Full-cast gold crowns & bridges are strong, but don't look at all like real teeth; porcelain metal restorations look better, but are prone to cracking and chipping.
Today, patients are turning to BruxZir® Solid Zirconia for their crown & bridge restorations. BruxZir Solid Zirconia is made from nearly indestructible zirconia, making it ideal for those who have broken their natural teeth or porcelain restorations through bruxing or grinding. And when compared side-by-side to full-cast gold and porcelain metal crowns, BruxZir zirconia crowns are the most natural-looking choice.
"I thought there was no hope for me: I ground all my teeth down to the gum line. Every time I would get fillings, I would grind the fillings gone in just a few days. It was a miracle the day my doctor discussed with me the possibility of complete restoration with BruxZir Solid Zirconia crowns. The restoration took almost six months to complete — but nine months later, it's still just like my teeth of many years past." - Susan H., Peoria, Illinois
