Product Profile: BruxZir Solid Zirconia

Dentaltown Magazine

Celebrating 10 years

BruxZir Solid Zirconia offers solutions for dentistry’s everyday challenges. The BruxZir family of restorative materials provides simplified treatment options for an expansive range of clinical needs.

BruxZir Solid Zirconia was originally developed to give clinicians an alternative to posterior PFMs and cast gold restorations. After its release in 2009, the material quickly became a favorite among clinicians who needed a tooth-colored solution with fracture-resistant strength.

At that time, the material’s appearance had room for improvement. The research and development team at Glidewell Dental responded by continually releasing enhanced formulations to address specific clinical necessities. Independent research organizations, evaluators and clinician groups have given top accolades to the product, proving that it performs brilliantly for a clinician’s everyday restorative needs. Whereas the product line originally launched with the concept of “More Brawn Than Beauty,” today it has evolved into the “Leading, Lasting, Loved” brand that dentists trust.

Today, BruxZir Solid Zirconia is available in two distinct formulations: BruxZir Full-Strength, which is engineered to withstand the toughest challenges of the oral environment, and the new BruxZir Esthetic, which delivers an optimized combination of strength and translucency. These materials can be used for an expansive range of clinical restorations, including crowns, bridges, veneers, screw-retained crowns, full-arch implant prostheses, inlays and onlays.

Clinicians have chosen BruxZir Solid Zirconia for its superior strength for nearly a decade. The Glidewell R&D team created the family of monolithic materials with this performance in mind, selecting the highest quality zirconia powder as a starting point. This purified powder is then further tested and refined by Glidewell scientists, with proprietary manufacturing techniques applied to establish exceptional qualities in finished BruxZir restorations.

Glidewell Dental is excited to be celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the original BruxZir material’s release. In that time, more than 18 million BruxZir restorations have been prescribed worldwide. Every BruxZir restoration is backed by a seven-year, no-fault warranty policy, which means Glidewell Dental will process all remakes or adjustments at no additional charge.
