Fixed Restorations



Porcelain-fused-to-zirconia restorations from Finesse utilize our high-quality zirconia, as well as esthetic porcelain for the ultimate anterior solution. These restorations are an excellent alternative to porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns and bridges, as they completely eliminate any common appearance issues, like discoloration or a dark line appearing along the gingiva. Our team carefully crafts each PFZ restoration to ensure accurate fit and lifelike beauty. Thanks to zirconia's inherent translucency, these crowns and bridges automatically offer a warmer appearance.

A CAD/CAM substitute for traditional PFM, our porcelain-fused-to-zirconia can be used for anterior and posterior crowns, crowns over implants, and bridges of up to fourteen units.

  • Cases with less than 1 mm clearance
  • Bruxism
  • Patients who have broken a PFM crown
  • Cases that require bonding

The ideal preparation for PFZs is a chamfer margin preparation. If a porcelain labial margin is prescribed, then a shoulder margin preparation is required.

  • Resin Ionomer cement (RelyX or RelyX Unicem, 3M ESPE)
  • Maxcem Elite (Kerr)
  • Panavia F 2.0 (Kuraray) - ideal for short, tapered preparations
  • Glass ionomer cement (GC Fuji, GC America)

If an adjustment is required on the ceramic, use a fine diamond with water and air to keep the crown cool. To contour the ceramic, polish with a pink rubber wheel and diamond polishing paste (Brasseler, Shofu, Vident).
