  • Conventional cementation
  • Vita shades
  • Natural light transmission
  • Unsurpassed strength
  • Minimal prep/clearance required
  • Easy to adjust / polish
Full-contour zirconia is so versatile, it can be used in almost any situation from singles, bridges with any combination of abutments and pontics, inlay bridges, Maryland type bridges and screw retained implants. Also an esthetic alternative to a PFM with metal occlusion due to limited space.
When esthetic expectations are high and it is important that the restorations match surrounding natural dentition or other existing restorations
If bonding is necessary to retain the restoration, bond strength is weaker and less predictable than other ceramics
Shoulder preparation not needed. A mild champfer or a feather edge margin is good. 1mm buccal, lingual and occlusal reduction is ideal, but can go to .5mm in some areas, when reduction is limited.
Minimum occlusal reduction of 0.5 mm; 1 mm is ideal.
Adjustments and polishing: Adjust Full-contour 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.
Polish Full-contour zirconia restorations with the porcelain polishing system of your choice.Posterior full-coverage crown requires a chamfer or shoulder margin. A circular shoulder is prepared with rounded inner edges or a chamfer at an angle of 10-30°: the width of the shoulder/chamfer is approx. 1 mm. Occlusal reduction is 1.5 – 2 mm: axial reduction (buccal, lingual and interproximal) is 1.5 mm with rounded internal line angles.
Full-contour zirconia may be cemented using a resin reinforced glass ionomer such as Relyx Luting cement. When a greater bond is needed do to the lack of a retentive preparation, use resin cement like Relyx Unicam or Relyx Ultimate.
Before cementing all Full-contour zirconia crowns, the interior surface of the crown needs to be cleaned with Ivoclean. This is critical in assuring maximum bond strength.
