Sintered dental zirconia has whiteness and translucency that very much resembles a natural tooth. Therefore, it is easy to achieve very aesthetic result in full contour zirconia restorations.
Monolithic zirconia restoration is the most solid restoration possible. As there is no chemical bond between zirconia and ceramic, any porcelain on functional surface might delaminate in the course of time. This is especially true for posterior crowns and implant based restorations.
Sintered zirconia is a very dense and highly acid proof material which prevents the absorption and surface accumulation of pollutants (like plaque). Monolithic zirconia restorations give a patient amazing “clean” sensation and greatly contribute to healthy tissues. The main objection to monolithic restorations comes from the perception that they are too abrasive for the opposing natural teeth. We should

Understanding Zirconia

Zirconia made a significant appearance on the dental horizon about 5 years ago. It provided an alternative for all ceramic crowns and bridges. Today, a milling procedure is the only reliable way to create zirconia restorative components for dental use. The availability of computer numerical controlled machines (CNC) allows for highly automated end-to-end component design using computer aided design and computer aided manufacture (CAD/CAM) programs. The programs produce a computer file that is interpreted to extract the commands needed to operate a particular machine, and then loaded into the CNC machines for production of the restoration coping or framework.

When All Else Fails

The following article is a case history from the office of Dr. Sylvio Caro, a prosthodontist from Westmount, Canada.

The patient, a 72 year old male, arrived to our clinic with a failing maxillary restoration on implants (hybrid bar on 10 Zimmer implants). When the restoration was removed for evaluation the reason for the failure became apparent.

White Possibilities

The case presented here is one in which a novel solution was achieved utilizing zirconia in a very challenging situation. The patient is a 70+ year old woman who had a history of multiple implant procedures over the past 18 years and had never made it past the temporary restorations due to complications with the implants.

White Possibilities - Dental Labor

Bei der Patientin handelte es sich um eine über 70 Jahre alte Frau, die in den vorangegangenen 18 Jahren schon mehrfach implantologisch behandelt worden war. Aufgrund von Komplikationen mit ihren Implantaten war sie nie über das Stadium der provisorischen Versorgung hinausgekommen.

The Zirconia Experience - Technical Insights

Диоксид циркония (ZrO2), или просто цирконий, — это кристал- лический оксид циркония белого цвета. На данный момент он является наиболее изучаемым керамическим материалом в стоматологии. Многие специалисты внедряют этот материал в свою практику, причем с различным успехом. Главный вопрос, которым сейчас задаются все специалисты, звучит так: является ли использо- вание циркония новой тенденцией или временной причудой?

Interview With Haim Keren, Founder Of Kerenor Dental Studio By Wolfgang Friebauer, Glidewell Laboratories

Haim Keren, MDT, CDT, is the founder of Kerenor Dental Studio, a high-end dental laboratory located in Montreal, Canada, that delivers world-class restorations with premium esthetics and function. As an expert in dental zirconia restorations, Haim has contributed to the development of both the technology and methodology utilized in fabricating zirconia for the dental industry. Read on for some exclusive technical pointers on how to guarantee success in your monolithic zirconia restorations.


Stereolithography (SLA) is the original 3D printing — or rapid prototyping — technology and is widely used today in a large variety of applications due to its efficacy in producing accurate details and a superb material finish. Thanks to advancements in both mechanical engineering and digital processes, stereolithography is a highly-valued asset in the production of sophisticated dentistry models that may be impossible to match with traditional prototyping practices.

Possibilities with Dental Zirconia

Zirconia is revolutionizing traditional dentistry as a safe, durable and enduring alternative to standard implant materials such as porcelain and acrylics. These materials have been the only answer to dental implant needs for decades and have served the industry in their role as the primary solution for dental crowns, bridges and dentures.

Reliability of Zirconia Restorations

Zirconia is a fully biocompatible material and poses no harm or risk of complications when exposed to living tissue for long periods of time. It is perfectly safe and maintains a smooth surface throughout its lifespan, preventing any irritation or abrasion of surrounding tissue or teeth.

Choosing a quality dental lab

Today’s dental technology promotes the most advanced treatment of teeth and dental prostheses available to-date. However, getting the foremost in product and service quality relies on choosing a quality dental lab where your needs are met with professional care and state-of-the-art technology.

Bruxism and Zirconia

For patients with bruxism, repairing and replacing their dental restorations and implants is a costly side-effect of having restoration materials that are not compatible with their condition. Monolithic zirconia is a perfect choice for anyone suffering from bruxism as it is designed to withstand and outperform other materials when it comes to wear-and-tear of the teeth.
