Zirconia Advantages at a Glance

Zirconia is highly aesthetic

Zirconia is highly translucent especially when compared to traditional metal substructures and can be customized according to the 16 classic Vita shades. Zirconia restorations also solve the ‘black gum line’ problem inherent with traditional metal restorations which occurs when the gingiva recedes. These qualities of zirconia provide natural looking restorations which are indistinguishable from real teeth.

Zirconia is exceptionally strong

Often referred to as ‘white steel’, zirconia is just as strong if not stronger than metal restorations and has a high fracture resistance.

Zirconia is bio-compatible

The body accepts tissue friendly zirconia as a natural material which minimizes the potential for allergic reactions.

Zirconia is corrosion free

Zirconia does not corrode because it is “chemically inert”.

Zirconia has low thermal conductivity

Most metals have a high thermal conductivity causing patients to feel greater sensitivity to fluctuations of hot or cold in the mouth. Zirconia restorations have a low thermal conductivity which helps minimize this problem.

Full Contour Zirconia

Less hands-on labor

Full Contour Zirconia requires minimal finish work after it has been milled.

Much more profitable restoration

With the price of precious metals on a constant rise, and low labor costs to finish a Full Contour Zirconia crown, you will be able to put more money in your pocket.

Aesthetic replacement for precious alloys

By replacing your PFMs and full cast crowns with Zirconia restorations you will be able to provide a more aesthetic restoration, make more money per unit, and increase cash flow by eliminating the precious alloy cost.


  • ORIGIN Live Zirconia can be milled for both (A) substructures or (B) full contour applications in one disc.
  • This is due to the fact that the material has both high translucency capability and high green body strength.
  • Very thin margins can be milled without having to  worry about chipping or cracks.
  • Coping-to-coping nesting can be successfully done  even between thin copings due to the high strength  green body characteristics.


  • The ORIGIN Live Zirconia and the Chroma coloring system were developed together by B&D Dental to provide consistent and easy coloring. The incisal enhancer (blue liquid) creates an incisal area with less chroma and less white value.
  • 16 VITA shades and 3D Master shades are available.
