Monolithic Chairside Restorations in the Posterior Area – Effective and Efficient

KATANA Zirconia Block

Translucent Multi-Layer Block with High Strengths for Cerec Users

Not all zirconia is created equal. This finding presented by Prof. Martin Rosentritt back in 2014 has lost none of its actuality and even appears to be increasingly relevant these days.  This is because dental practitioners are spoilt for choice between various zirconia blanks, which differ widely in terms of quality, flexural strength, shade appearance, translucency and production complexity.  Hence, each material has its own specific processing requirements and range of indications.

Profound knowledge of the available zirconia options is therefore an absolute prerequisite for long-term success of every full-contour restoration produced in a time-efficient and economic procedure.
