HT vs. SHT zirconia - a direct case comparison

11. May, 2016
Ceramill Zolid White FX (SHT zirconia) above, Ceramill Zolid White (HT zirconia) at the bottom

Initial situation:

Single restoration made from highly translucent zirconia ordered by the dentist

Indication & material used:

High-strength, aesthetic zircona – Highly translucent Ceramill Zolid White and super-high-translucent Ceramill Zolid FX White

Realization:

With both models: The frameworks are buccally reduced and veneered with porcelain in the clearly visible (premolars) region. The remaining areas and the two molars are monolithically designed, stained and customised.

Conclusion:

The focus of this restoration was mainly on cost-effectiveness. However, highly aesthetic results can be easily attained using both zirconium oxides. The difference hereby is in the translucency – which is clearly visible in the direct comparison above.
