What is Zirconia Block?

As we all know there are three types materials used for dental restorations: zirconia block material and metal material. Zirconium oxide occurs as monoclinic, tetragonal and cubic crystal forms. Densely sintered parts can be manufactured as cubic and/or tetragonal crystal forms. In order to stabilise these crystal structures, stabilisers such as magnesium oxide (MgO) or yttrium oxide (Y2O3) need to be added to the ZrO2.

Why zirconia block is the most suitable product in dental restorations?

Let’s talk form zirconia’s formation. The dental zirconia block is made of crystalline oxide form of zirconium, and it consists of a metallic atom in the crystal but is never considered a metal. Because of its durable and biocompatible properties, surgeons or doctors use dental zirconia block in various prostheses. Even it is used in implants as it is considered the most robust material.

Even though numerous products are used in the dental industry, the dental zirconia block also called ceramic block is most famous among the dentist and patients.

Some advantages for dental zirconia blocks:

– As it is manufactured using the high-tech development. With high fracture toughness, thermal expansion similar to cast iron, extremely high bending strength and tensile strength, high resistance to wear and to corrosion, low thermal conductivity

– Also, it is approved by national agencies. Also, these blocks have undergone some purity test, to make sure that it is completely safe to use.

–Dental zirconia block is a high-quality product, and also it makes the tooth more durable and natural.

–Once the product is implanted inside the patient, it will give a good shelf life to the product.

–The other important benefits of this dental zirconia block are it will reduce the pre-drying time and improve the visual impression during the dyeing time.

–The most important features of this product are it can possess any natural color reappearance, and also it can match any size and shape.
