This new generation of highest quality zirconia, that features increased translucency, is the newest formulation of maximum strength, alternative to Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM).
BioZ material is used to fabricate Porcelain Fused to Zirconia (PFZ) crowns and bridges, and Full Contour (FC) monolithic crowns and bridges, a no porcelain overlay option made of 100% zirconia.
Both the BioZ PFZ and the BioZ FC involve a conservative preparation similar to full-cast gold, they are less abrasive, and ensure less tooth reduction. They are minimally invasive.
Among its advantages highlights its conservative feather edge and its outstanding glazed surface, what makes it plaque resistant. BioZ crowns and bridges are available in 16 shades.
These restorations ensure long-term strength and resistance due to its sinter temperature lower of 1450°C, what creates a low-defect microstructure with very small grains packed tightly.
Thanks to its amazing strength and translucence, BioZ material can be used in all applications including anterior, posterior and implant restorations.
