Zirconium restorations

For fabricating popular zirconium restorations, we use Straumann’s CAD/CAM scanner and DeguDent’s Cercon CAD/CAM system, which allows us to fabricate zirconium restorations at the dental laboratory. Zirconium is used for making caps, bridge frameworks, interlock bridge frameworks, in-lays, on-lays and overlays and individual implant abutments. In order to avoid micro-factures and major splits, we only use a water-cooled turbine engine for processing zirconium frameworks.
