BruxZir Anterior Milling Blanks are uniquely formulated to satisfy the functional and esthetic requirements of anterior and premolar restorations.

Glidewell Laboratories, industry-leading provider of dental laboratory products and services, announced today the release of BruxZir® Anterior Solid Zirconia Milling Blanks. As the latest advancement in the BruxZir Solid Zirconia product line, BruxZir Anterior Milling Blanks are uniquely formulated to satisfy the functional and esthetic requirements of anterior and premolar restorations.

Available in white plus five base shades designed to achieve all 16 VITA® Classical shades through simple staining and glazing techniques, BruxZir Anterior delivers color and translucency similar to natural dentition while still exhibiting an average flexural strength of 625–675 MPa. At launch, shades 150, 250, 350 and white are available, with shades 450 and 550 coming soon.

Exhibiting a substantially higher light transmission in the warm color wavelengths than any previous version of BruxZir Solid Zirconia, restorations milled from BruxZir Anterior blanks more closely match the vital translucency of natural dentition. What’s more, due to the material’s average flexural strength of 650 MPa, restorations made from BruxZir Anterior Milling Blanks far exceed the measured strengths of competing lithium disilicate restorations.

BruxZir Anterior Milling Blanks are available in four milling blank configurations and are currently compatible with milling units from Glidewell Laboratories, Haas Automation, Inc., Intelitek Inc., Roeders GmbH, imes-icore GmbH, B&D Dental Technologies, vhf camfacture AG, Wieland Dental, and Digital Dental Lab.

BruxZir Anterior Milling Blanks are distributed by Glidewell Direct and Zahn Dental, the dental laboratory division of Henry Schein, Inc. For more information about BruxZir Anterior Milling Blanks, visit
