Crystal Translithic TLZ all-zirconia crowns and bridges are the ideal restoration for posterior crowns and bridges. We have completed hundreds of cases with very satisfied clients and patients. Because these crowns and bridges are monolithic, not porcelain fused or layered or pressed, to a substructure, there are not weak spots, and resistance to fracturing, sheering, chipping, breaking, and wearing are maximized.
There is a genuine reluctance to try an all zirconia crown for two reasons. Wear against opposing and adjustability. This was a major criteria for ROE Dental Laboratory when choosing an all-zirconia product. TLZ is a yttria stabilized zirconia with three other trace elements. This compound consists of extremely tiny particles, much smaller than a glass matrix, especially a feldspathic type porcelain. Due to this fine particle attribute, kindness to opposing, adjustability and polishability are a benefit, not a contraindication. Due to the popularity of TLZ and other full contour materials, test are being conducted and these conclusions are being published. Our TLZ is in the middle of such a study and the findings will be shared soon.
In the mean time. TLZ is ideal for bicuspids with standard shades, and molars. Our staining and firing technique make TLZ and esthetic restoration. The industrial milling technology makes TLZ extremely precise. And, the strength of material makes TLZ clinically indestructible.
