Zirconia

Zirconia

With an extensive clinical history of working with full-contour zirconia and more than 300,000 crowns seated, NDX provides an economical, efficient solution for posterior restorations when strength is at a premium. With these virtually unbreakable all-ceramic crowns, you can provide your patients the strength to withstand severe parafunctional activity and avoid metal restorations. The full-contoured zirconia crown or bridge contains no porcelain overlay. It is glazed with a smooth surface and functions optimally in the posterior. Benefits include: superior strength, a smooth metal-free finish to the gum line, biocompatible medical-grade zirconia and CAD/CAM fabrication for a consistent fit.

LuxxZr™

LuxxZr™ is our high end of solid zirconia, recommended for your most demanding aesthetic cases. It has an enamel-like translucency with innovative, multi-layered technology. This material is highly aesthetic and designed to satisfy the functional requirements of the anterior region of the mouth. LuxxZr™ also has the strength needed for the posterior of the mouth.

 

PFZ

An all-ceramic restoration with a zirconia core and a porcelain overlay. An alternative to PFM’s, the PFZ is more aesthetic than the total zirconia BruxZir® restoration and can be prescribed anywhere in the mouth. By integrating the best of class CAD/CAM systems, NDX has created a crown that delivers on price, fit, strength, and aesthetics.
