Translucent (and ultra-translucent) integral zirconium is well suited for bridges and single permanent crowns and abutments, with lower cost and superior mechanical properties when compared to layered zirconium.  An additional benefit is that this material allows for very thin walls on the milled item (0,6 mm) still offering a very good aesthetic, fully comparable to a layered metal-ceramic prosthesis (dentin and enamel).
