Crown & Bridge


BruxZir® Full Zirconia

"Trachsel Dental’s most popular restoration since 2010!"

  • Monolithic restoration (no porcelain overlay)
  • 1,100 Mpa Strength
  • CAD/CAM Produced
  • All Indications

What is BruxZir Solid Zirconia?

BruxZir Solid Zirconia is the #1 prescribed brand of full-contour zirconia in North America. Providing a stronger and more durable cementable solution, BruxZir restorations can be used in almost any clinical situation and are an esthetic alternative to cast gold and metal occlusal PFMs.

Patient Benefits

BruxZir is completely chip-proof, as it is made of solid zirconia with no porcelain overlay. As a result, this monolithic material is extremely durable. The glazed smooth surface of the final BruxZir restoration prevents plaque buildup and opposing dentition wear.

Preparation Requirements for BruxZir Crowns & Bridges:

Shoulder preparation not needed, feather edge is OK. It is a conservative preparation similar to full-cast gold, so any preparation with at least 0.5 mm of occlusal space is accepted. Minimum occlusal reduction of 0.5 mm; 1 mm is ideal.

Cementation Recommendations:

Ceramir Crown & Bridge or a resin-reinforced glass ionomer cement such as RelyX™Luting Cement (3M ESPE; St. Paul, Minn.) or GC FujiPlus™ (GC America; Alsip; Ill.) For short or over-tapered preparations, use a resin cement such as RelyX™ Unicem (3M ESPE) or Panavia™ F2.0 (Kuraray; New York, N.Y.).

BruxZir® Anterior Solid Zirconia - HTZ

"High Translucency Zirconia HTZ!"

  • Monolithic restoration (no porcelain overlay)
  • 650-720 Mpa Strength
  • CAD/CAM Produced
  • Indicated for single units and up to 3-unit bridgework in all tooth positions
  • BruxZir®  Anterior HTZ is twice as strong as lithium disilicate and is 10-15% more translucent than standard zirconia
  • Trachsel Dental Studio has seen excellent results for over two years with this product!

What is CubeX2 Zirconia?

The new CubeX material combines the known positive properties of zirconia with a significant increase in translucency (49% translucency) making it ideal for anterior and posterior applications up to 3-unit bridgework in all tooth positions. Highly biocompatible, CubeX is the ideal restorative material for today’s dentistry offering the translucency of a lithium disilicate while retaining the strength of zirconia at 720MPa. Unlike current glass ceramics, CubeX allows for a conservative feather edge preparation due to its high strength. Dentists no longer have to choose between traditional zirconia and lithium disilicate... CubeX has both strength and beauty!

Clinical Indications:

CubeX2 is indicated for single crowns and 3-unit bridgework in all tooth positions

Preparation Requirements for CubeX2:

Cubex requires less tooth preparation than lithium disilicate (e.max). Ideally 0.8mm chamfer or rounded shoulder prep is preferred, however a feather-edge margin is acceptable with 1.0 – 1.5mm occlusal reduction.

Cementation Recommendations:

Ceramir Crown & Bridge or a resin-reinforced glass ionomer cement such as RelyX Luting Cement (3M ESPE) or GC Fuji Plus (GC America) for short over-tapered preparations, use a resin cement such as RelyX Unicem (3M ESPE) or Panavia F2.0 (Kuraray).
