Zirconia: A Game-Changer in Dental Restorations

Zirconia, a versatile and sought-after material, stands out as a superior choice for clinicians seeking metal-free restorations. Preferred over traditional PFM due to its exceptional attributes such as aesthetics, durability, precision fit, biocompatibility, and strength, Zirconia is a popular choice among clinicians.


Cyberdent's Diverse Zirconia Options

At Cyberdent, we present a range of Zirconia options, including Zirmax (porcelain veneered onto a zirconia core), Zirmega (full contour high translucent zirconia), and Zirmil (full contour Zirconia). In this piece, our focus shifts to Zirmil – a testament to full-contour Zirconia's capabilities.


The Strength and Durability of Zirmil

Zirmil emerges as a full-contour masterpiece, expertly milled from a solid Zirconium block. With exceptional hardness and biocompatibility, Zirconia proves remarkably resistant to wear.


Strength: A Clear Advantage

Zirmil earns a remarkable five-star rating for its strength – a crucial factor in restorations that require longevity and resilience.


Aesthetic Considerations

While Zirmil boasts impressive strength, its translucency remains limited. For cases demanding heightened aesthetic appeal, Zirmega or Zirmax are more suitable Zirconia alternatives.


When to Opt for Zirmil

Zirmil is an ideal choice for specific scenarios:

  1. Single crowns, especially in posterior regions where aesthetics take a back seat.

  2. Long-span bridges that demand robust structural support.

  3. Implant-retained restorations, ensuring stability and durability.

Technician's Insights

For darker shade preps, Zirmil shines as an excellent metal-free option, owing to its minimal translucency. To ensure optimal results, kindly provide our technicians with relevant information, including photos of the teeth with stump shade. This valuable input aids in tailoring the restoration process to your specific needs.
