New Chairside Zirconia, powered by Roland DGA, offers fully sintered zirconia CAD/CAM milling blocks designed for use with the company’s DGSHAPE DWX-42W Series wet-milling solutions. This innovation makes same-day chairside zirconia restorations achievable with a simple prep, scan, mill, and seat workflow.
Now available through authorized Roland DGA dental resellers, Chairside Zirconia is a game-changer for clinical dental professionals. Unlike traditional monolithic dry-milled zirconia materials, it features an exclusive 3-layer gradient design (25% Incisal, 25% Transition, and 50% Dentin) that ensures optimal restorative esthetics with natural translucency while maintaining superior zirconia strength properties.
Chairside Zirconia’s multi-layered composition eliminates the need for sintering or additional finishing, removing the requirement for a sintering or ceramic oven. It boasts an average flexural strength of 500 MPa without firing, surpassing the 364 MPa average for traditional lithium disilicate milling blocks after firing and crystallization. Additionally, Chairside Zirconia has a particle size of approximately 4.0 µm, nearly four times greater than the average traditional zirconia milling puck. Its coarse microstructure, combined with exceptional fracture toughness and low scratch hardness, allows for superior milling capabilities and results. Moreover, Chairside Zirconia is specifically designed for wet-milling, thanks to its unique particle structure and density, setting it apart from traditional zirconia materials.
“Chairside Zirconia is a revolutionary product that offers significant advantages for clinical dental professionals,” said Roland DGA’s dental marketing manager, Lisa Aguirre. “The unique qualities of this material, along with the minimal finishing time required, make same-day zirconia restorations possible, without compromising strength or esthetics.”
Perfect for single unit, anterior, and posterior restorations, Chairside Zirconia is offered in a variety of shades and milling block sizes. It is compatible with Roland DGA’s DGSHAPE DWX-42W Series Chairside wet-milling solutions and ZGB-125D, ZGB-50D, ZGB25D, and ZGB2-75D milling tools. A money-saving Chairside Zirconia Powered by Roland DGA “Starter Kit,” which includes zirconia blocks in two different shades, three ZGB milling tools, and Polishing Paste, is also available.
