Full Zirconia (BruxZir)

Full Zirconia (bruxzir) is a solid zirconia restoration with no porcelain overlay. While BruxZir is more brawn than beauty, you’ll be impressed by its esthetics when prescribed instead of metal occlusal PFMs and full-cast metal restorations. Virtually unbreakable, it is an ideal restoration for bruxers and grinders.

Designed and milled using CAD/CAM technology, BruxZir crowns and bridges are sintered for 6.5 hours at 1,530°C. The final BruxZir crown or bridge emerges “nearly bulletproof” and is glazed to a smooth surface.

Benefits for Your Patient

Chip-resistant, as it is made of full zirconia with no porcelain overlay

Glazed to a smooth surface to reduce plaque accumulation


BruxZir Solid Zirconia is indicated for posterior crowns, bridges, inlays and onlays. BruxZir is an ideal solution for bruxers and grinders when PFM metal occlusals or full-cast restorations are not desired. BruxZir is also ideally suited for posterior molar crowns when the patient lacks the preparation space for a PFM or has broken a PFM in the past due to bruxing.

Preparation Guidelines

Shoulder preparation not needed, feather edge is okay. It is a conservative preparation similar to full-cast gold so any preparation with at least 0.5 mm of occlusal space is acceptable. Minimum occlusal space of 0.5 mm, but 1.0 mm is ideal.
