Materials science meets classical artistry.
Our Z Crown™ combines a highly translucent crystal zirconia core with expertly layered e.max Ceram porcelain for the ultimate in esthetics.
Z Crown™ offers flexural strength equivalent to traditional porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations, but eliminates the gingival darkening some patients experience with non-precious or semi-precious PFMs. Since the zirconia core is similar to the color of the patient’s tooth, exposed metal margins due to gingival recession are a thing of the past.
We design each coping to maximize porcelain support and marginal integrity. That’s why Z Crowns™ seat easily, maximize patient satisfaction, and generate referrals.
Once placed, Z Crown™ blends with the patient’s existing dentition through its ability to transmit the color of adjacent teeth. Our master ceramists can match the shade and character of any natural dentition and excel at the harmonious combination of zirconia and porcelain.
Natural beauty. Supernatural strength.
Z Crown™ Solid is full-contour zirconia for the ultimate in durability. Up to 1600 MPa of compressive strength for restorations that withstand the forces of nature and the tests of time.
Painstakingly glazed and polished to reduce wear on opposing dentition. Carefully designed to balance patient-unique occlusion with ideal morphology. Expertly stained to bring inert zirconia to life.
After many years of practice, and many thousands of cases, we have the experience and technique to produce art in zirconia.
Choose from diamond-hard zirconia for bruxism patients, or translucent crystal zirconia for esthetic posterior restorations.
Finally! Full contour Zirconia for the Esthetic Zone.
The crystal microstructure that makes Z Crown™ Anterior an esthetic zirconia system is responsible for its extremely high translucency and outstanding properties. As a result, unlike glass ceramics, up to three-unit bridges and posterior restorations can be manufactured.
The impressive appearance of Z Crown™ Anterior is derived from a typical zirconium material. Since the only difference is crystalline structure, the result is a biocompatible, high-performance ceramic with high flexural strength and fracture toughness.
Take the best of both worlds. Place the best of the best.
Metal-free, biocompatible, and precision milled: Z Crown™ Plus is a true hybrid of zirconia and porcelain.
1350 MPa of flexural strength on the occlusal means tough restorations for tight locations. Better still, the crystal zirconia core of our Z Crown™ Plus is highly translucent, yet three times as durable as comparable porcelain for fracture-free restorations.
All of the finishing work that makes our Z Solid™ so realistic—the idealized design, the hand-painted stain, the mirror-smooth polish—is amplified in our Z Plus.
Once the core is formed, e.max Ceram porcelain is layered on the buccal surface for lifelike, highly esthetic results with true-to-nature light scattering and a balanced relationship between brightness and chroma.
We think our Z Crown™ Plus is the pinnacle of our zirconia artistry. We think you’ll agree.
