Our full-contour zirconia restorations are a seamless solution for crowns and bridges. These monolithic restorations are made from a single block of zirconia, harnessing its natural translucency and strength. At Bolton Dental Laboratory, we use the latest CAD/CAM technology to create excellent margins and contours for every full-contour zirconia restoration we craft. Whether you need an anterior or posterior crown or bridge, we have you covered. Our team also ensures that the surfaces of these restorations are smooth, improving their appearance and ensuring they are gentle on natural teeth. With high flexural strength and fracture resistance, these restorations are built to last. Plus, their lifelike translucency gives them a natural look that blends seamlessly with your smile. Trust Bolton Dental Laboratory for your full-contour zirconia restoration needs.

- Resin Ionomer cement (RelyX or RelyX Unicem, 3M ESPE)
- Maxcem Elite (Kerr)

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).
