OC BruxZir

OC BruxZir is a monolithic zirconia crown, bridge, screw-retained implant crown, inlay or onlay with no porcelain overlay. First launched as being “More Brawn Than Beauty,” the material was originally intended to provide a durable, more esthetic alternative to posterior metal occlusal PFMs or cast gold restorations for demanding situations like bruxers, implant restorations and areas with limited occlusal space. Now, thanks to the new BruxZir Shaded formulation, BruxZir restorations exhibit improved translucency and color similar to natural dentition, making them a restorative option in the anterior as well. Complete color penetration all the way through the restorations ensures greater shade consistency and prevents any shade changes after occlusal adjustment.

Designed and milled using CAD/CAM technology, OC BruxZir is sintered for 2 hours at 1,530 degrees Celsius to achieve optimum strength. The final BruxZir crown or bridge is then stained and glazed to a smooth surface. OC BruxZir crowns & bridges are back by a seven-year free replacement warranty

With the introduction of the OC BruxZir Full-Arch Implant Prosthesis, the strength and esthetics of monolithic zirconia is now available for full-arch indications. Strong, hygienic and affordably priced, this fully edentulous restoration offers exceptional resistance to the chips, fractures and stains that can compromise acrylic dentures.

As the most prescribed brand of full-contour zirconia, OC BruxZir has labs across the U.S. clamoring to become an Authorized BruxZir Lab. The unique composition of OC BruxZir has garnered accolades from dental zirconia supplier Tosoh Corporation and the Pride Institute, and The Dental Advisor named OC BruxZir a Top Long Term Performer in 2013.
