As the price of gold continues to climb, more and more doctors are looking for alternatives to traditional PFM restorations
Tampa, FL (Vocus) September 30, 2010
DDS Lab, a national dental laboratory based in Tampa, FL, announces their newest innovation in fixed restorations, Z-Crown, in both layered and solid zirconia options. Z-Crown Layered has a clinical grade zirconia core with a porcelain overlay, and Z-Crown Solid is monolithic and made from 100% pure zirconia. At 1200 MPa, the Z-Crown has a comparable flexural strength of traditional porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations while maintaining a natural and vibrant translucency.
“As the price of gold continues to climb, more and more doctors are looking for alternatives to traditional PFM restorations”, said Amy Ceresa, President of DDS Lab, “our Z-Crown restorations are perfect options from a strength and value perspective.”
Z-Crown Layered and Z-Crown Solid are 100% metal-free, a feature that prevents gingival darkening and removes the possibility of exposing metallic margins if gum recession begins. They are naturally esthetic, transmit the color of adjacent teeth and can be matched to any shade.
Z-Crown Solid is one of the strongest restorations available for any patient who may have bruxing or grinding issues. Utilizing CAD/CAM technology, it also has a precise marginal fit that can significantly reduce chair time. Since traditional cementation is recommended, there is also no need to bond the restoration.
