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 hours at 1,530 degrees Celsius to achieve optimum strength. The final BruxZir crown or bridge is then stained and glazed to a smooth surface. BruxZir Solid Zirconia crowns & bridges are backed by Lavina Dental Lab's seven-year free replacement warranty.
BruxZir Solid Zirconia is indicated for crowns, bridges, implants, inlays and onlays. It is an esthetic alternative to PFM metal occlusal/lingual or full-cast restorations when indicated but not desired by the patient. BruxZir is also ideal when the patient lacks the preparation space for a PFM or for bruxers who have broken a PFM in the past.
BENEFITS FOR THE PATIENT
Chip-resistant, as it is made of solid zirconia with no porcelain overlay
Glazed to a smooth surface to reduce plaque accumulation
Shoulder preparation not needed, feather edge is okay. It is a conservative preparation similar to full-cast gold, so any preparation with at least 0.5 mm of occlusal space is accepted.
Minimum occlusal reduction of 0.5 mm; 1 mm is ideal.
Instructions for Adjustments and Polishing
Adjust BruxZir zirconia crowns and bridges using water and air spray to keep the restoration cool and to avoid micro-fractures with a fine grit diamond. If using air only, use the lightest touch possible when making adjustments. A football shaped bur is the most effective for occlusal and lingual surfaces (on anterior teeth); a tapered bur is the ideal choice for buccal and lingual surfaces.
