BruxZir® Solid Zirconia Crowns are a new option for posterior restorations. With these virtually unbreakable all-ceramic crowns, you can provide your patients the strength to withstand severe parafunctional activity and avoid metal restorations. BruxZir is a full contoured zirconia crown or bridge with no porcelain overlay. It is glazed with a smooth surface but designed specifically for the posterior with more emphasis on brawn than beauty.
Recent research has shown that saliva contamination can hinder the bonding of solid zirconia and zirconia oxide copings. To successfully remove saliva, it is now suggested that after try-in and before priming, the crown should be cleaned with Ivoclean, a zirconia oxide solution from Ivoclar. The suggested protocol is: 1. Try in BruxZir or zirconia-based restoration. 2. Rinse saliva out of restoration with water. 3. Place Ivoclean in restoration for 20 seconds, rinse and dry. 4. Apply Primer and then cement with product of your choice.
