In the history of human beings, teeth are what the most important ogan. We use teeth chewing meats and taste hard nuts. The use of teeth will wear and tear the teeth. In the past, dentist use different materials for dental restorations, most of them are disappeared, only zirconia became the most popular material. Nowaday, zirconia block usage in dental is still increasing.

Zirconia usage in dental increasing is due to CAD/CAM technologe widely used in many dental labs. When the price CAD/CAM milling machines drop to an afortable arrange, dental labs can use zirconia blocks to make more nice denture than before with lower price.
Key features of zirconia block
In the market there are different brand of zirconia blocks. Some call them zirconia discs, some call them zirconia blanks. They may also have diferent merchandize names. But essentially, the differences are below 3 features due to different manufacturing process:
- Monolithic zirconia with maximum strength(1200Mpa)
- Multilayer zirconia with maximum aesthetics for translucency
- Between above to compromise with strength and translucency
So with this knowledge, It’s easy to compare with zirconia block products between different brand and their commercial names. It depends on the dentist’s purpose of fixing, where is the missing tooth. Anterior restorations may need highest tranlucency while back teeth may need highest strength.
