Characteristics of zircon that make it useful in dentistry:
There are two ways to make zircon dental prostheses: either manually or through computer planning. Zircon overcame many of the materials previously used in transparent, metal-free structures due to its sturdiness and durability. This is due to the nature of zircon crystals which can be separated from each other and returned to their position when subjected to strong pressure. This made its use possible in the manufacturing of long bridges.
