Say sayonara to having to choose between strength or esthetics when it comes to Zirconia restorations. 3M now offers well-balanced efficiency for chairside crowns and bridges.
New 3M™ Chairside Zirconia enables you to provide both the high-strength AND beautiful esthetics you and your patients desire – in less time. The new material’s optimal blend of high-strength and esthetics is optimized for fast firing in the CEREC® SpeedFire Furnace1.
And, for easy shade matching, our Chairside Zirconia is available in eight different shades and two block sizes for crowns and three-unit bridges4 – designed to match the VITA® classical shades.
“The esthetics and better sintering time of 3M™ Chairside Zirconia have made this my go-to zirconia material. It polishes very easily and has a good level of translucency. I see no need to glaze this material. ~Daniel Buttermann, DDS
