Optimizing Translucent Zirconia: (CUZR)

Edward McLaren, DDS

Course#: 36177

Recently, versions of zirconia have come on the market that are much more translucent than the original zirconia. They claim esthetic potential to be used in monolithic form for incisors, and also claim to be as translucent as the translucent forms of well-accepted lithium disilicates. Interest has been directed to specialized or shortened firing techniques for CUZR (cubic zirconia). In this session, Dr. McLaren will review several of the time and temperature relationships to translucency and chroma development that can be controlled to obtain a predictable result in less than 60 minutes firing time. Dr. McLaren will also present customization techniques he uses with these new CUZR materials, both pre- and post-sintering.
