Katana has become my favored zirconia brand when the clinical circumstances allow adequate occlusal reduction. The sintering time in the Dentsply Sirona SpeedFire furnace is in the 18-minute range.

I do appreciate the all-zirconia restorations and provide quite a number of them as a treatment option in my clinical theater. The primary benefit of the all zirconia restoration for me is the conservative crown prep and biomechanical “muscle” material behavior. In the next year, we will find an abundance of new brands and translucency options being introduced to the market. We will need to decipher recommended prep style and reductionRead more
