Lithium- Zirconia Materials: High Strength and Uncompromised Esthetics

TIME: 9:00AM - 10:00AM

Course Outline: In today’s market, there is a high demand for strength and esthetics. For most available materials there is a solution for one or the other, but not both at the level that exceed patient expectations. Until now..! 


The introduction of a highly translucent zirconium- reinforced lithium silicate glass ceramic foundation, supporting average biaxial strengths of over 541Mpa with uncompromised shade consistency with streamlined processing steps will be presented. In addition, for the production of “bread & butter” monolithic crowns, new pre-shaded highly translucent and multicolor zirconia materials that rival micro-layered ceramics are now available to address anterior esthetics and posterior strength concerns without the need for internal or external staining for shade matching. Now, two “Out of the Box” materials meeting patient needs, strength, shade tab reproduction, and have simplified process work-flow are available.
