Our Zirconia Milling Center
Haus Dental Design & Milling Center is committed to providing top-quality dental solutions to dental laboratories across the nation. Founded by Alex Kim, CDT, who leads the company as CEO, Haus specializes in digital dental production, serving dental labs by providing superior dental design and milling services through our state-of-the-art milling center. We are located in Carrollton, Texas, and we serve clients across the nation. When working on dental products, such as implants, crowns, bridges, veneers, and more, Haus has access to a wide range of products and brands popular with our clients. One of the preferred materials we work with is zirconia. Further down this page, we discuss the different types of zirconia products that are available, and the different brands we work with, along with what makes zirconia such an excellent material for dental solutions. But first, here’s a brief overview on zirconia.
A Quick Overview On Zirconia
- Excellent Quality: Zirconia is known in the industry as a quality material for creating dental products and milling them to precise specifications. It’s also proven to be durable and strong for the patient, which means a longer-lasting solution the patient can be pleased with.
- Results In A Smooth Surface: If you already have any dental crowns or implants, you know how important it is that the surface of your restoration be smooth, not rough. Zirconia products can be finished to a natural, comfortable surface texture for a smooth finish dental patients will appreciate.
- Precise, Comfortable Fit: Dental restorations need to fit well, otherwise the patient can experience a degree of discomfort. For example, crowns that are too tight or too loose will cause issues. With zirconia products, dental professionals can achieve a precise fit for a more comfortable experience for the patient, both during the dental procedure, and well beyond into everyday life, year after year.
- Better Than Metal Products: For many dentists and patients alike, ceramic zirconia is far superior to metals, such as gold. This durable ceramic material is chemically unreactive, making it the preferred choice for any patient with an allergy or even a mild sensitivity to metal.
- Attractive And Natural-looking: What’s more, zirconia products can be made to look like natural teeth, resulting in an attractive option that matches the rest of the patient’s teeth.
For aesthetics, quality, durability, strength, and safety, zirconia is a top choice! It can be molded into many different types of dental restorations, including crowns, implants, bridges, and dentures, and it can be milled with a high degree of precision for an excellent fit and greater comfort. This is why it’s the material of choice for dental labs across the nation, and why we use it in our dental milling center. Our technicians enjoy working with zirconia, whether it’s solid or multi-layered, for the beautiful results we can achieve with this dental material. In terms of translucency, strength, and durability, it is an excellent option we highly recommend for a wide range of dental solutions.
We Specialize In Milling And Design
Here at Haus Dental Design & Milling Center, we are experts in the design and milling process. We work closely with each client, making sure we fully understand the specifications and we have a complete set of files and instructions before we begin the job.

Alex went on to work with his teams to make improvements in the field, including key changes to the software and the kinds of materials used for a better experience for everyone involved in the process. Pioneering efforts included changes that helped bring Zirconia Discs and the BruxZir® brand to the forefront.

Our Quality Zirconia Products
We choose to work with zirconia because it is a top-rated material in the dental industry. Zirconia is well-suited for implants, dentures, crowns, bridges, and more, and there are several quality brands to choose from, which we will go over in a moment. But first, what are some of the important factors you need to consider when using zirconia?
What To Consider With Zirconia
Zirconia is a strong ceramic material that is highly durable, making it an excellent choice for crowns in particular, especially those located in posterior positions in the mouth. Because these back teeth use a great deal of force and strength to chew food and grind it down, a strong material is an important consideration for dental restorations. Thankfully, zirconia is known for its strength, and it holds up well at meal- and snack-times. Another important consideration is workability. How difficult is it to work with zirconia? For a specialized milling center like our own, the answer is that it isn’t difficult at all. We have zirconia milling machines that can handle every custom job our clients bring us. Our cutting-edge CAD/CAM technology and our knowledgeable technicians make us the right choice for all your zirconia dental milling needs.

As you can see, when it comes to dental milling for all types of restorations, zirconia is a preferred material because it offers so many benefits. It’s strong enough to withstand the pressures involved with eating and chewing, making it a durable option. It’s beautiful, with a translucent quality that closely mimics real tooth enamel. Technicians like working with this material because it can be shaped and molded into practically any type of dental restoration, with the end result matching the look and feel of real teeth. At our dental design and milling center, it truly is a type of material we like to use for all kinds of dental products, from single to complete implants, to crowns and bridges.
Do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have. Our dental milling center is here to help you through the design and milling process, every step of the way. If you’re not sure how to proceed, or you’d like to ask us anything before you begin, we encourage you to send us your questions!
A Little More About Zirconia Materials
Here are several more things we’d like you to know about zirconia. First, its high degree of translucency enables it to mimic the look of natural teeth. Many people can’t even tell the difference between natural teeth and zirconia dental restorations.
- More Options For Dental Labs: Zirconia comes in varying degrees of translucency, strength, and material composition, letting labs pick what’s best on a case-by-case basis.
- Solid or Layered: The material comes in solid or layered form; once again, this translates to greater options for dentists and dental labs.
- Shades Are Customizable: This lets dentists and labs come up with a better match to each patient’s natural teeth.
- Resistant To Fractures: Because zirconia is incredibly strong, the material resists fractures, leading to a better, more reliable dental restoration.
- A Highly Compatible Material: For the vast majority of patients, zirconia is highly compatible with the tissues of the mouth, making it the preferred choice particularly for anyone with allergies and sensitivities.
- Less Sensitive To Temperature Changes: People with zirconia crowns and implants typically report less sensitivity to hot and cold fluctuations, particularly when drinking liquids.
Zirconia Offers Options
As we’ve already mentioned, you’ll enjoy numerous options when you choose zirconia. For one thing, you can work with a solid block of material, or you can opt for a multi-layered approach. Everything from shade to strength can be customized. The patient ends up with restorations that are made of strong, durable material, which means they can stand up to a great deal of wear and tear without breaking or cracking. In addition, the patient will enjoy a beautiful, natural color with a translucency that mimics what you’d see in real teeth.
Solid vs. Multi-layered Zirconia
We can help you determine whether solid or multi-layered zirconia is the best option for your specific case. Layered zirconia offers higher degrees and quality of translucency, making it the option of choice for the front teeth, which are more visible. Solid zirconia provides greater strength, making it the natural choice for back teeth. Molars do a great deal of grinding and pressure application, making the stronger solid zirconia the better option for back teeth, in most cases.
Of course, there are other considerations you’ll need to go over before making your final decision. Haus Dental Design & Milling Center is here to guide you through the process so you can choose the right option for every patient. In dentistry, one size (or material type) doesn’t fit everyone equally! We want what’s best for your dentists and their patients, so please consult with us with any questions you may have.
