A Cercon Zirconia aesthetic restoration

Cercon Zirconia

Cercon Zirconia is a system for aesthetic metal-free milled crowns and bridges. The reliability of Cercon Zirconia restorations is backed up by more than five years of proven clinical success. The system is used to fabricate anterior or posterior single units or multi-unit bridge restorations out of translucent, biocompatible zirconia, the strongest and toughest dental ceramic. Cercon Zirconia restorations have an opaque core to mask discolouration and can be placed with conventional cementation or adhesive bonding techniques. Great results can be achieved when used in combination with implants.
