Leading dental solutions provider, Roland DGA, has unveiled Chairside Zirconia, a groundbreaking product that transforms the process of same-day zirconia restorations. Chairside Zirconia, designed to be used with Roland DGA’s DWX-42W Series wet-milling solutions, offers fully sintered zirconia CAD/CAM milling blocks that eliminate the need for additional finishing or sintering.
Chairside Zirconia sets itself apart from traditional dry-milled zirconia materials with its unique 3-layer gradient design, ensuring optimal restorative esthetics with natural translucency while maintaining superior zirconia strength properties. Unlike other materials, Chairside Zirconia eliminates the necessity of a ceramic oven and boasts an impressive average flexural strength of 500 MPa without firing, surpassing the average strength of traditional lithium disilicate milling blocks after firing and crystallization.
The exceptional milling capabilities of Chairside Zirconia can be attributed to its coarse microstructure, combined with outstanding fracture toughness and low scratch hardness. With a particle size approximately four times larger than traditional zirconia milling pucks, Chairside Zirconia delivers superior milling results. Furthermore, it is specifically designed for wet-milling, setting it apart from conventional zirconia materials.
Lisa Aguirre, the dental marketing manager at Roland DGA, highlighted the benefits of Chairside Zirconia for dental professionals. She emphasized that “The unique qualities of this material, along with the minimal finishing time required, make same-day zirconia restorations possible, without compromising strength or esthetics.”
Chairside Zirconia is available in various shades and milling block sizes, catering to single-unit, anterior, and posterior restorations. It is fully compatible with Roland DGA’s DWX-42W Series Chairside wet-milling solutions and a wide range of milling tools. Roland DGA also offers a cost-saving “Starter Kit” that includes zirconia blocks in two different shades, ZGB milling tools, and Polishing Paste.
