The Third Generation of Zirconia Veneering Porcelain
Assmann, Steffen
A successful technique when veneering zirconia frameworks calls for the development of efficient veneering porcelains, which must fulfil numerous requirements. This article focuses on the mechanical requirements and characteristics of Zenoflex dimension as a modern, third-generation ZrO2 veneering porcelain and documents its performance with the aid of two aging simulation tests using different setups after veneering ZrO2 frameworks.

Convincing features of Zenoflex dimension include excellent handling properties, very good firing shrinkage, variable layering options, variable shade guide and outstanding aesthetics. Its integration in the Zenotec CAD/CAM concept of Wieland Dental + Technik confirms that, overall, Zenoflex dimension impressively fulfils the formulated property profile of "resistant to chipping - aesthetic - digitally compatible".

Keywords: zirconia frameworks, veneering porcelains, Zenoflex
