The Dental Zirconia Bloc
The Dental Zirconia Block


In many dental procedures, zirconia has been used, as it helps in providing superior solutions. Zirconia is used in various forms, such as zirconia-based dental posts, Zirconia-based crown and bridge, and Dental Zirconia blocks. Dental Zirconia block has increasingly become the choice for many dentists, as it provides the most technologically advanced metal-free restorations.

Why is Dental Zirconia Block used in the dentist industry?

Dental Zirconia Block is translucent, metal-free, 100% biocompatible, extremely durable, and bonds well with your teeth. These reasons make zirconia most popular in the dentist field, and even though the price is slightly high, most dentist and the patient prefer this.

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.

How are the zirconia blocks made?

They are typically produced using a computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system, which allows for precise and consistent shaping of the zirconia material. The blanks are then further processed through milling and sintering to produce the final product.  

What material is dental zirconia?

Dental zirconia is, most often, a modified yttria (Y2O3) tetragonal zirconia polycrystal (Y-TZP). Yttria is added to stabilize the crystal structure transformation during firing at an elevated temperature and improve the physical properties of zirconia.

The three forms of zirconia used in dental crowns are:

  • Solid or monolithic zirconia.
  • Layered zirconia.
  • High translucent zirconia.

The variety of zirconia blocks:




3D pro ML, 3D ML, 4D ML

Multi mix

What type of zirconia is the best?

Solid zirconia, or “monolithic zirconia,” is opaque, so it’s generally recommended for posterior crowns. Solid zirconia contains more stabilizers than high translucent zirconia, making it more durable to withstand the forces of mastication. This material is particularly suitable for patients who may grind their teeth.

What is the quality of zirconia?

The six categories used to describe the quality of cubic zirconia are: AAAAA (the highest quality), AAAA, AAA, AA, A and AB (the lowest quality). The highest quality stones are hard and clear, while the lowest quality stones are cloudy and soft. Most cubic zirconia sold today are rated as AAA quality stones.

Here are some important points which will let you know how Zirconia block is used in the dental industry;

  • The selection of the right dental zirconia blocks is essential, as it will determine the crown or bridge’s size and shape. These blocks will be fixed on the milling machine and then scanned using the CAM/CAD scanner.
  • The next step is setting the parameters, as mentioned in the shrinkage co-efficient of the zirconia blocks. Then. then thee experts will do the milling
  • the Expert will insert the milling products into the sintering furnace, and once the sintering is done, the product is completed, and you can insert this in the patient’s mouth for oral well-being.
  • Cosmetic dentistry restoration requirement: People love the move-star of shinning teeth, the 3D multilayer dental zirconia block, can be achieved the perfect smile need. Based on the dentistry cosmetic restoration, there is no process of liquid coloring anymore.
  • Feature of 3D multilayer dental zirconia block

How many types of zirconia are there?

They are classified to 12 types with yttria content, monochromatic/polychromatic, uniform/hybrid composition, and monolayer/multilayer. Zirconia with a higher yttria content has higher translucency and lower mechanical strength.

The main disadvantage of zirconia:

One potential disadvantage of a zirconia crown is its opaque appearance, which can make it look less than natural. This is especially true for monolithic zirconia crowns, which are made just from zirconia, although it may be less of an issue for teeth in the back of your mouth.


1.High transparency at incisal edge;

2.High strength

3.Good aesthetics, suitable for all cases.
