Zirconia has quickly become a trusted and aesthetic material choice to restore with amongst dentists. It is imperishable and extremely long-lasting, well suited for creating crowns and bridges.
At Oceanic Dental Laboratory we design our zirconia restorations digitally using 3d scanners and CAD software. The model work is prepared, scanned, and designed by our experienced team of technicians. A block of zirconia is milled in a pre-sintered state, then characterised with internal staining liquids. We then sinter the material to strengthen it up to 1200MPa. External stains and glaze materials are added prior to the crown being dispatched for insert. These crowns are typically 4 to 5 times stronger than a porcelain fused to metal crown.
Zirconia crowns are pleasing to the eye and really do mimic natural tooth characteristics with the help of our experienced dental technicians.
