FIXED-DENTURES COME IN
3
PRIMARY MATERIALS
Acrylic

Acrylic has been an industry standard since 1938. This material is low cost, but is known to hold odors & bacteria. Dentures often break after 5 years.

Zirconia

Zirconia Dioxide (ZrO2) is a strong material used in modern day fixed-dentures. They are a very heavy material that can sometimes damage adjacent teeth when biting.

Nano-ceramic

Nano-ceramic fixed-dentures use polymer matrix composites (reinforced fibers), to add strength on a molecular level. Nano-ceramic dentures are lighter, more flexible, and resist cracks or breaks much better than their predecessors.

WHAT IS ZrO2
ZIRCONIA
(ZIRCONIUM)?

Zirconium is mined primarily in Australia, South Africa, China, India, Brazil, & the USA

Zirconium (Zr) is a soft metal found in abundance all over the world.

Zirconium dioxide (ZrO2), or Zirconia, is a powdery ceramic material.

Zirconium dioxide powder is pressed into discs using (primarily) isostatic (even distribution) pressing techniques.

HOW ARE NANO-CERAMIC FIXED-DENTURES
SUPERIOR
TO ZIRCONIA?
Weight

Nano-ceramic fixed-dentures are up to 60% lighter than zirconia, helping to avoid the "click/clack" feeling when biting.

DOES IT MATTER WHO
MILLS
A FIXED-DENTURE?
YES!!!
IT'S IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHO MAKES YOUR DENTURE!

Milling a denture requires 2 special skills. One is technical, the other artistic. Staying up-to-date with CAD/CAM technologies is important, but just as important as understanding the subtleties of the human body.
