Strong, Comfortable, Esthetic Rehabilitations with Zirconia

Product Details

Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD

In just a few short years, zirconia restorations have nearly monopolized the crown and fixed prosthesis market.  However, these restorations are not without challenges! Let us show you how to overcome them!  As you know by now, esthetics has not been a strong characteristic of zirconia restorations but is now greatly improved. You undoubtedly have had zirconia restorations come off in service, but that can be prevented. Zirconia has several forms, some strong and some much weaker- do you know the differences and the representative brand names? 

Watch Gordon do many restorations using zirconia on both posterior and anterior teeth, demonstrating all materials, steps, and clinical techniques while achieving optimum esthetics, strength, and patient satisfaction.  Zirconia restorations are not going away! Now is the time to get updated and incorporate these great techniques into your practice.
