Zirconia

With an extensive clinical history of working with Full Contour Zirconia (FCZ) and more than 300,000 crowns seated, NDX provides an economical, efficient solution for posterior restorations when strength is a must. With these all-ceramic crowns, you can provide your patients with the strength to withstand severe parafunctional activity and avoid metal restorations. The FCZ 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® FCZ

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

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 in Verotek™ restoration;
  2. Rinse saliva out of 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.
