Katana Zirconia Crowns
Zirconia has been a choice restoration for posterior crowns since the decline in the demand for alloy based restorations…but the zirconia that has been manufactured was aesthetic enough for an anterior region. With that information, manufacturers have been developing a way to fill the need for this, and now we are able to introduce aesthetic zirconia, Katana™ zirconia.
Katana™ aesthetic zirconia is manufactured by one of the top porcelain companies in the world, Noritake. What is amazing about this aesthetic zirconia by Katana™ is the highly aesthetic results it can produce. The Katana™ zirconia disc is multi-layered which helps achieve a natural tooth appearance.
Katana™ zirconia has incredible strength (1200mpa), and still has a translucency like no other, getting impeccable results and has an advantage as a full contour zirconia crown versus a porcelain fused restoration. Katana™ contains an enamel layer, a first transition layer, a second transition layer, and finally a body layer. This leaves no issues while adjusting the crown, whereas a typical zirconia crown, that are dipped and stained, the shade could easily be removed while adjusting with a bur.
A special addition to your first Katana™ zirconia crown case is our ON-BOARD kit, which arrives with each first case of Katana™ zirconia. Our ON-BOARD kit includes a prep guide, cementation guide, and a step by step direction of how to download an exclusive app onto your iphone or droid for custom shade matching for your patient.
