They provide the strength, the resilience and the natural look as that of the enamel of a natural tooth.
They are also recreating the natural form and functionality of a damaged tooth,using zirconium instead of metal beneath the porcelain.
They are more biocompatible with the tissue, by having a more eye pleasing aesthetic result as well as greater durability.
Zirconium is made by digital computerized technology CAD-CAM with very high precision.
