Cercon ht is based on the yttria-stabilized zirconia material Cercon
base, which has been clinically proven for 10 years. With the addition
of a minuscule amount of alumina, a modified production process
and a sintering temperature adjusted to the specific requirements
of this material, Cercon ht combines proven clinical safety with
outstanding translucent properties.
✔ Flexural strength
Cercon ht has the same flexural strength as Cercon base.
✔ Long-term stability
Artificial-aging studies (thermal cycling and storing in a water
bath) have shown that the long-term stability of Cercon ht is the
same as for Cercon base.
✔ Veneering characteristics
Cercon ht has the same excellent veneering characteristics as
frameworks for metal-ceramic restorations, the gold standard.
✔ Clinical safety
Cercon ht is the result of ongoing Cercon development efforts,
offering comprehensive and validated safety.
