Zirconia is highly aesthetic Zirconia is highly translucent especially when compared to traditional metal substructures and can be customized according to the 16 classic Vita shades. Zirconia restorations also solve the 'black gum line' problem inherent with traditional metal restorations which occurs when the gingiva recedes. These qualities of zirconia provide natural looking restorations which are indistinguishable from real teeth.
Zirconia is exceptionally strong Often referred to as 'white steel', zirconia is just as strong if not stronger than metal restorations and has a high fracture resistance.
Zirconia is bio-compatible The body accepts tissue friendly zirconia as a natural material which minimizes the potential for allergic reactions.
Zirconia is corrosion free Zirconia does not corrode because it is "chemically inert".
Zirconia has low thermal conductivity Most metals have a high thermal conductivity causing patients to feel greater sensitivity to fluctuations of hot or cold in the mouth. Zirconia restorations have a low thermal conductivity which helps minimize this problem.
Tested and Proven to Be Superior for Various Milling Tools and Methods with No Margin Chipping Margin chipping can occur for many reasons including; incorrect calibration, tool wear, a margin design that is too weak, etc. In addition, weak zirconia material may not withstand the stress of the aggresive milling process, possibly leaving small visible chips along the margin as well as unvisible micro-cracks within the coping or framework.
ORIGIN® YZ Zirconia discs have been tested successfully for different milling tools including both conventional designs (tool B & C) and advanced burs (tool A) designed to cut faster and more agressively. It also can be milled under both wet milling and dry milling conditions.
Excellent Esthetic Properties - A Translucent Substructure That is Comparable to or Better Than Leading Brands An identical coping was milled with the Cerec machine using three of the major brands. The translucency of the material depends not only on the material properties of the ceramic, but also on the recommended thickness of the layer, i.e. the wall thickness. So we followed the minimum wall thickness requirement (0.7mm) of the inLab system for all three copings with the same design.
16 Different Liquids to Color Your Zirconia • ORIGIN zirconia can be colored by dipping the coping into the Color Liquids prior to sintering. • ORIGIN YZ zirconia blocks can be colored according to the 16 different colors covering the entire classic-V shade range. • The color becomes indelible through the sintering process thus avoiding the possibility of having white margins. • After dipping, the excess liquid is removed by blow drying. • Coloring liquid has no negative effects on the physical material properties such as flexural strength or fracture toughness.
