Description

Dr. Michael DiTolla details the use of BruxZir Solid Zirconia restorations in the anterior to esthetically restore a chronic bruxing patient with severe tetracycline staining in this clinical presentation. As demonstrated in the case example, BruxZir Solid Zirconia arguably provides the best material option for this type of case due to its high flexural strength and resistance to fracture, as well as its ability to mask dark underlying tooth structure more completely than other restorative materials currently available. Clinical technique tips are discussed using detailed images of the various steps undertaken during anesthetization, preparation, gingival retraction, impression-taking, indirect temporization and final restoration.
