BruxZir NOW gives clinicians the power to fabricate and seat high-strength monolithic restorations directly in their offices.

Glidewell Laboratories, industry-leading provider of dental laboratory services and products, announced today the release of BruxZir® NOW milling blocks. For the first time ever, clinicians are able to deliver high-strength, authentic BruxZir Solid Zirconia restorations without sending the case to the dental lab.

BruxZir NOW milling blocks produce restorations that can be designed and fabricated in-office, and are available in 14 shades that correspond to the VITA® Classical shade system. Finished crowns exhibit flexural strengths of greater than 800 MPa, without the need for sintering, staining or glazing.

At launch, BruxZir NOW is compatible with the TS150™ Chairside Milling Solution from IOS Technologies, Inc. The TS150 utilizes a powerful, air-driven, 150,000-rpm spindle in conjunction with a patent-pending orbital milling strategy, which combine to promote excellent marginal integrity and fit of the final restoration. For clinicians looking to provide in-office, same-day crown services, the TS150 is one of the most affordable solutions in the marketplace. The TS150 along with FastDesign™ software from Glidewell Laboratories seamlessly connect with the Align Technology iTero®, 3Shape TRIOS® and the 3M™ True Definition Scanner to facilitate an end-to-end digital workflow.

BruxZir NOW milling blocks are indicated for single-unit crowns anywhere in the mouth, though they are ideal for molar and premolar preparations. There is no faster way for practitioners to deliver genuine BruxZir Solid Zirconia crowns than via the BruxZir NOW milling block system. With no oven wait, BruxZir NOW gives clinicians the power to fabricate and seat high-strength monolithic restorations directly in their offices.
