Opalite All-Zirconia Crowns and Bridges: Super Strong and Esthetic for Demanding Posterior Applications

June 2, 2010
by Eric P. Jones & Associates Inc.

Calgary    June 2, 2010    Offer your patients the esthetic – and economical – alternative to metal occlusion or full-cast posterior restorations with new Opalite™ All-Zirconia crowns and bridges, exclusively from Aurum Ceramic/Classic.

Created from monolithic, solid medical grade Zirconia, each Opalite™ restoration is hard sintered to reach a final flexural strength of 1100 MPa, more than enough to meet posterior high load demands. Virtually unbreakable, Opalite™ is perfect for those tight, minimal clearance situations where there isn’t enough occlusal preparation space for porcelain coverage. As little as .5 mm occlusal reduction (although 1.0 mm is ideal) is all that is required – far less than standard PFM or layered Zirconia/Porcelain restorations! Utilize a traditional, conservative cast gold preparation, feather edge margins and conventional cementation. Each restoration is CAD/CAM milled for virtually perfect contacts, fit and easy seating.

Opalite™ is also the perfect alternative for severe bruxers and grinders that still want an esthetic posterior restoration. Glazed to a smooth, plaque resistant surface, Opalite’s translucent zirconia and wide range of shade options makes it the ultimate posterior esthetic choice.
