Lava Zirconia Crowns and Bridges

Daniel Suttor

Ceramic restorations—suitable for the anterior as well as the posterior region, simultaneously satisfying the demand for high strength, longevity, and esthetics—are an increasingly important field for the dental professional. Because of its outstanding mechanical properties and esthetics with a proven track record in other industrial areas, zirconium oxide (zirconia) is emerging in the dental industry. As the manufacturing method of choice, CAD/CAM is important for the dental laboratory; however, in the final analysis, the primary focus will be on the material properties and the clinical performance of the result of the CAD/CAM process—in this case, zirconia crowns and bridges. This is especially true since some concepts do not require the acquisition of a CAD/CAM system at all.
