The new super-strong Bruxzir crown.

The strong and beautiful Bruxzir crown

As a cosmetic dentist in Gig Harbor I am thrilled to announce that we are now offering the BruxZir crown.  A monolithic zirconia crown, the BruxZir crown offers an aesthetic alternative to the full gold crown.  Don’t get me wrong, I still love gold as a dental restorative material.  Some of my older patients come in with eight or ten gold inlays, onlays and crowns and they just look like jewelry to me!  I so appreciate the beautiful craftsmanship!  That said, most people now prefer something a little more….  natural.  The problem is that the very last molar in the mouth is subjected to tremendous forces, forces that often resulted in porcelain wear or even fracture.  We now have a great alternative, both incredibly strong and beautiful.  Zirconia looks like porcelain, but if you look in the periodic table of elements, it’s located amongst the metals.  For a great combination of both superior strength and aesthetics I now recommend BruxZir crowns.  Check out this youtube video from our very own Ziemek Lab http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9998Rd2MtA
