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.

Verotek™ Aesthetic

Verotek™ Aesthetic represents a revolutionary advancement in solid zirconia material for anterior and posterior restorations. You can provide your patients with a restoration that compares to e.max in aesthetics, with nearly twice the strength!  Verotek™ Aesthetic is a full-contour solid zirconia crown or bridge restoration with no porcelain overlay. It is glazed with a smooth wear-kind surface optimized for use in the aesthetic zone with natural translucency and internal color. Verotek™ Aesthetic crowns are precision-milled and sintered for 12 hours at 1450⁰ C for a homogenous structure that is significantly stronger than lithium disilicate.
 

Verotek™ Aesthetic Advantages

  • Improved translucency and intrinsic color as compared to BruxZir® zirconia
  • Available for single units and 3-unit bridges including molar abutment
  • Flexural strength of 780 MPa – almost twice the strength of e.max
  • Biocompatible medical-grade zirconia
  • Monolithic structure makes the restoration nearly chip-proof
  • Fabricated using CAD/CAM technology for precision fit and marginal accuracy

Cementing recommendations

  • Resin-reinforced glass ionomer cement: RelyX (3M ESPE), Fuji Plus (GC America)
  • Resin cements for short or over-tapered preparations: Unicem (3M ESPE)
  • Ceramir C & B (Doxa)

Prep requirements

  • Slight chamfer margin preferred for best result
  • A more conservative preparation than is required for e.max
  • 1.5-mm of occlusal space is ideal

Seating recommendations

Research has shown that saliva contamination can inhibit the bond of solid zirconia and zirconia oxide copings. To successfully remove saliva, it is suggested that after try-in and before priming, the crown should be cleaned with Ivoclean, a zirconia oxide solution from Ivoclar-Vivadent.
The suggested protocol is:
  1. Try the Verotek™ Aesthetic restoration in the patient’s mouth;
  2. Rinse saliva out of the restoration with water;
  3. Place Ivoclean in restoration for 20 seconds, rinse and dry;
  4. Apply primer and then cement with product of your choice.
We can accept your digital intra-oral scans for Verotek™ Aesthetic restorations.

Verotek™ FCZ

Verotek™ FCZ (full-contour zirconia) is a new option for posterior restorations. With these virtually unbreakable all-ceramic crowns, you can provide your patients with the strength to withstand severe para-functional activity while avoiding metal-based restorations. Verotek™ FCZ is a full contour zirconia crown or bridge material that is solid, with no porcelain overlay. It is glazed with a smooth wear-kind surface and engineered specifically for posterior restorations.  Verotek™ FCZ is sintered for 12 hours at 1580⁰ C, resulting in a homogenous and virtually indestructible restoration.

Verotek™ FCZ Advantages

  • Ideal for patients with bruxism and parafunction who have destroyed other restorations
  • An aesthetic alternative to posterior PFMs with metal occlusals and full-cast crowns
  • Improved gradation of color as compared to BruxZir® zirconia
  • Available for single units and bridges with no span limitation
  • Flexural strength of 1100 MPa
  • Biocompatible medical-grade zirconia
  • Monolithic structure makes the restoration nearly chip-proof
  • Fabricated using CAD/CAM technology for precision fit and marginal accuracy

Cementing Recommendations

  • Resin-reinforced glass ionomer cement: RelyX (3M ESPE), Fuji Plus (GC America)
  • Resin cements for short or over-tapered preparations: Unicem (3M ESPE)
  • Ceramir C & B (Doxa)

Prep requirements

  • Shoulder or chamfer margins preferred, feather-edge accepted
  • A conservative preparation similar to full-cast gold is possible due to high strength
  • 1.0mm of occlusal reduction is ideal
