Translucent zirconium dioxide
Translucent Zirconium Dioxide
Suitable for monolithic restorations
Gingiva-friendly & plaque-resistant
The translucent zirconium dioxide cara Zr trans is characterised by its natural translucency. The material is suitable for the fabrication of monolithic crowns and bridges as well as for the fabrication of frameworks for ceramic veneering.
All versions of translucent zirconium dioxide from cara Zr trans feature extremely high, natural translucency. As a result, the material itself already ensures a natural, aesthetic restoration.
cara Zr translucent is available in five colours: white, light, medium, B-medium and intensive.
The translucent zirconium dioxide cara Zr trans features higher translucency and flexural strength than conventional zirconium dioxide and is therefore ideal for full anatomical monolithic zirconium crowns. The material is available in 5 colours: white, light, medium, B-medium and intensive.
With a minimal wall thickness of at least 0.3 mm, it enables tissue-conserving, minimally invasive preparation.
There is an increasing demand for monolithic restorations. cara translucent Zirconium dioxide is a simple and efficient alternative to non-precious-metal full cast crown – especially in the posterior region. Monolithic crowns and bridges can be fabricated up to 7 units.
Unlike other zirconium dioxides, the tooth-coloured cara Zr tr features extremely high, natural translucency. Together with the matching stains, this allows easily and efficiently fabricating aesthetic, individual restorations.
Indications and contraindications
cara Zr is approved for monolithic crowns and bridges as well as for veneered frameworks with up to 7 units, inlays, onlays and primary telescopes.
The translucent zirconium dioxide cara Zr trans must not be used in cases of bruxism or therapy-resistant para-functions. In the event of hypersensitivity of the patient towards zirconium dioxide, it should only be used under the strict supervision of the treating doctor.
However, Kulzer is unable to provide any warranty for constructions beyond the approval.
Handling translucent zirconium dioxide
In the preparation and placement of reconstructions made of transparent zirconium dioxide, the material-specific properties that apply to all zirconium oxides must be taken into consideration.
Thanks to the minimum wall thickness of only 0.4 mm, the preparation can be particularly tissue-conserving and minimally invasive.
cara Ceramics Preparation Guide
For the custom finalisation of monolithic full zirconia restorations, Kulzer has developed the pastes HeraCeram Stains universal. They allow the dental technician to easily and quickly reproduce all 16 V-colours by simple painting and glazing and to individually characterise the restoration as needed.
