When BruxZir® Zirconia was launched in 2009, it was immediately recognized for its combination of strength, durability and esthetic quality. Characterized as being “More Brawn Than Beauty,” BruxZir was originally designed for use in the posterior due to its fracture-resistant nature. The R&D department at Glidewell then expanded the BruxZir product family to include a wide range of dental restorations, each uniquely formulated to meet specific clinical needs, esthetic characteristics and flexural strengths. More than a decade later, BruxZir has become the No. 1 brand of monolithic zirconia in the industry, with over 24 million restorations prescribed worldwide.
BruxZir Full-Strength was introduced to satisfy two improvements dentists sought in monolithic zirconia-based restorative products: increased durability and a natural appearance. With an average flexural strength of 1,150 MPa, BruxZir Full-Strength is the strongest BruxZir formula and an ideal solution for patients who suffer from bruxism, have a strong bite, or present situations with limited occlusal space. BruxZir Full-Strength also has complete color penetration — lending itself to better translucency and realism thanks to our BruxZir Shaded technology.
When tested for durability with 15 other zirconia brands by the independent Gordon J. Christensen Clinicians Report®, BruxZir Full-Strength was found to be the only material with zero fractures and a 100% survival rate over a 10-year period.1 Although other global brands displayed zero terminal fractures, none have been available on the market for as long as BruxZir. The study also tracked the wear of the test crowns and opposing dentition by measuring the length and width of every wear facet via an electron microscope. BruxZir Full-Strength proved to be very wear-friendly, with little deterioration to the various tested materials.
Preparing your patient for a BruxZir Full-Strength restoration is easy, as it only requires 0.5–1.0 mm of reduction. For dentists who favor conservative dentistry, BruxZir Full-Strength is a practical choice because it requires minimal removal of healthy tooth materials and less chairside work.
As part of our ongoing effort to provide patients with long-term solutions, Riverside Dental Ceramics also offers a lifetime warranty for the life of the patient. Any BruxZir restoration, from single-unit crowns to full-arch prostheses, can be remade or adjusted in our lab — at no extra cost. Our confidence in your satisfaction with BruxZir Full-Strength is backed by our lifetime warranty and the material’s success in clinical studies.
