FCZ (Full Contour Zirconia) is an ideal option for patients with bruxism. At a microscopic level, its monolithic crystalline structure is smooth, which aids in decreasing wear on opposing teeth, while providing impressive strength of 700-1100 MPa.
Our PFZ (Porcelain Fused to Zirconia) has a flexural strength of 1200 MPa. It can be milled as a traditional coping, or in cases where anterior incisal function is heavy, we mill the lingual in zirconia and add a porcelain facial.
