BruxZir® Full-Strength Zirconia offers dentists— like us at E.S.I Healthy Dentistry— a solution for the most functionally demanding cases. The original leader in high strength, BruxZir Full-Strength has been prescribed for millions of patients around the world.
Engineered to withstand the toughest challenges of the oral environment
An esthetic alternative to cast gold and metal occlusal PFMs
Great for bruxers who have destroyed natural teeth or previous dental restorations
BruxZir Full-Strength Zirconia is a monolithic zirconia material with no porcelain overlay that is used for crowns, bridges, screw-retained implant crowns, inlays and onlays. 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 BruxZir Shaded formulation, BruxZir Full-Strength restorations exhibit improved translucency and color similar to natural dentition. Complete color penetration all the way through the restorations ensures greater shade consistency and prevents any shade change after occlusal adjustment. BruxZir zirconia’s unique composition is backed by research from Gordon J. Christensen Clinicians Report®, proving its superior clinical performance.
High Flexural Strength
The restorative formulations in the BruxZir Zirconia family exhibit flexural strengths significantly greater than those of other tooth-colored options, and exceed the ISO 6872:2015 strength recommendations for bridges greater than 4 units.
Safe on Enamel
Glazed BruxZir Full-Strength was found to cause less enamel wear than glazed IPS e.max® in a study that measured the volumetric loss of enamel following simulated chewing function.1
Causes Less Wear
BruxZir Full-Strength zirconia was shown to exhibit significantly less wear than Ceramco®3 porcelain in a study that compared the performance of the materials after 1.2 million cycles (the clinical equivalent of approximately five years) in a Willytec Chewing Simulator.
