Aurum offers all-zirconia crowns, bridges

Aurum Ceramic Dental Laboratories is now offering Opalite all-zirconia crowns and bridges as an aesthetic alternative to metal occlusion or full-cast posterior, the company announced.

Created from monolithic, solid medical-grade zirconia, each CAD/CAM-milled Opalite restoration is hard-sintered to reach a final flexural strength of 1,100 MPa, more than enough to meet posterior high load demands, the company said. In addition, as little as 0.5 mm occlusal reduction is required, far less than standard porcelain fused to metal or layered zirconia/porcelain restorations, Aurum noted.

Opalite is also good for severe bruxers and grinders who still want an aesthetic posterior restoration, the company said.
