Today zirconium - the material which is well known for years in other industrial fields - is commonly used in dentistry. There are different manufacturing methods as manual as CAD/CAM. We at Egressy Dental use the modern computerized CAD/CAM manufacturing technology. To learn more about our CAD/CAM system, click here!
Zirconium restorations meet the highest aesthetic and functional expectations and are biocompatible. They do not have a metal core therefore the adjoining gum will show no dark metal edges. Ceramic material is color- fast and wear-resistant. In addition, the low heat conduction protects the dental nerve, which is very sensitive to temperature changes. With less transparent types you can easily hide a metal post and core or an implant abutment. To learn more about zirconium click here!
3Shape’s design software and Wieland’s Zeno Star blanks are used during the manufacture.
