Most dentists think of zirconia as the highest strength, all-ceramic material that they can use to balance esthetics and durability. It is the material we go to for patients with occlusal risk, for second molars at higher risk of fracture and for all ceramic bridges. When you start to discuss zirconia you will hear flexural strengths of 900-1,400 mPa thrown around.
