Tanaka Enamel ZR™ Supreme
A Perfect Marriage of Strength and Beauty
True translucency is essential for a lifelike appearance. With a standard opaque zirconia, translucency must be faked with coloring, which appears dull and lifeless compared to super high translucent zirconia. It is also possible for zirconia to be too translucent resulting in diminished strength and a glass-like appearance.
We developed the Enamel ZR™ Supreme as a solution to such problems in our own lab. This zirconia block was designed from the ground up to provide the finest balance between strength and translucency that allowed us to create full zirconia restorations that are both durable and naturally beautiful.
|Translucency||49% at 1mm thickness|
|Thickness (mm)||10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22|

Coloring is more difficult with high translucency zirconia due to its yttria content. This is why we have designed a coloring liquid which is formulated specifically for working with Enamel ZR Supreme, making it the perfect block for when you need full control of the color.
