Artistic Dental Laboratories offers porcelain-fused-to-zirconia restorations that are an excellent alternative to PFM crowns due to their high strength and lifelike esthetics. They have a substructure that has a flexural strength of up to 1,450 MPa and an overlay of highly esthetic porcelain. These restorations are hypoallergenic and biocompatible. Due to the naturally translucent esthetics of zirconia, the common esthetic disadvantages of PFMs are not an issue.Send a Case
A CAD/CAM substitute for traditional PFM, our porcelain-fused-to-zirconia can be used for anterior and posterior crowns, crowns over implants, and bridges of up to fourteen units.
The ideal preparation for PFZs is a chamfer margin preparation. If a porcelain labial margin is prescribed, then a shoulder margin preparation is required.
If an adjustment is required on the ceramic, use a fine diamond with water and air to keep the crown cool. To contour the ceramic, polish with a pink rubber wheel and diamond polishing paste (Brasseler, Shofu, Vident).
