The technology of Zirconia-based restorations provide the strongest, the most sustained and most semitransparent dental material ever made, giving patients the experience of having stronger-than-steel crowns and bridges. With this technology you can escape the annoyance of dark underlying shadows caused by substructures based on steel, gold or titanium. The most significant benefit of Zirconia copings is that it is five time stronger than any other commonly used all-ceramic restoration.

Zirkonia, also called "white steel”, being a 100% biocompatible material, has been used to create substructures in cosmetic dentistry as well as for several medical applications. Zirkonia provides the possibility of brighter, whiter, and the most aesthetically translucent quality crowns and bridges in modern dentistry.

In the past, the most frequented technology for crowns and bridges was the Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal (PFM). These restorations, built on a dark metal alloy base, tend to look opaque and monochromatic, with a darker grayness at the gum line – the most annoying characteristic for even an inexpert eye.

Zirconium is a kind of porcelain that substitutes the metal bases of all dental restorations. This technology guarantees the appearance and translucency of natural teeth.

In laboratory tests Zirconia restorations proved to be TWICE as strong as PFM (Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal) restorations. Also, this technology guarantees a FIVE times stronger solution than any other all-ceramic restorations used in dentistry.

To put it simple there is no material in dental industry that is stronger then Zirconium.

100% biocompatibility of Zirconia means that it is a material human body does not reject but fully accepts as a natural material. For this reason Zirconium is the preferred material in modern dentistry as well as of other of modern medical science. It also means you do not need to worry about allergies or adverse reactions.
