3M™ Chairside Zirconia, a new CAD/CAM zirconia block for the CEREC SpeedFire furnace, offers a well-balanced, high strength, esthetic option for single-unit crowns and 3-unit bridges.
Fast sintering time of approximately 20 minutes for a thin walled crown in the CEREC® SpeedFire furnace allows for a more efficient single visit appointment. 3M Chairside Zirconia can also be fast fired in high temperature sintering furnaces, including the Programat® CS4. Cementation is simplified with 3M™ RelyX™ Luting Plus Resin Modified Glass Ionomer Cement or 3M™ RelyX™ Unicem 2 Self Adhesive Resin Cement..
*With one pontic supported on each side by a crown
**CEREC® SpeedFire furnace, restorations with particular designs (parameter integrated in CEREC® software; wall thickness 1.2 mm or less)
***19.6 min for small, thin walled crowns; 22.4 min for all other crowns
