Zirconia Crowns

All Crown & Bridge Milled In-House

All zirconia dental crowns and bridge cases are designed, milled, and finished in-house. The process begins with model making. Traditional impressions are turned into stone models by our C&B department before being scanned into our modeling software via a 3Shape benchtop scanner.

Next, our experienced technicians will design the crown and mill from one of two types of zirconia. All anterior crowns are milled from eMax zirconia by Ivoclar, while posterior cases are milled from Bruxzir zirconia.

Finally, all restorations are finished with a glaze or stain according to the specification of the dentist.

All zirconia crown and bridge restorations have a 5 day in-lab turnaround time.

Thin restoration walls possible

Due to the Zirconia’s high flexural strength of 850 and 1,200 MPa1 as well as its high fracture toughness the wall thickness of restorations can be significantly reduced. As a result, tooth-conserving preparation and conventional cementation are possible. You will benefit from a perfect balance between thin restoration walls and optimum translucency.

Utica Dental Lab is a Bruxzir Authorized Laboratory.

What is BruxZir® Solid Zirconia?

BruxZir Authorized

BruxZir Solid Zirconia is the #1 prescribed brand of full-contour zirconia in North America. Providing a stronger and more durable cementable solution, BruxZir restorations can be used in almost any clinical situation and are an esthetic alternative to cast gold and metal occlusal PFMs.

BruxZir® Solid Zirconia is a monolithic zirconia crown, bridge, screw-retained implant crown, full-arch fixed implant solution, inlay or onlay with no porcelain overlay. First launched as being “More Brawn Than Beauty,” the material was originally intended to provide a durable, more esthetic alternative to posterior metal occlusal PFMs or cast gold restorations for demanding situations like bruxers, implant restorations and areas with limited occlusal space.

Now, thanks to the new BruxZir Shaded formulation, BruxZir restorations exhibit improved translucency and color similar to natural dentition, making them a restorative option in the anterior as well. Complete color penetration all the way through the restorations ensures greater shade consistency and prevents any shade changes after occlusal adjustment.

All zirconia crown and bridge restorations have a 5 day in-lab turnaround time.
