ZERAMEX[R] XT was developed for outstanding soft-tissue attachment and low inflammatory response.[i] The white zirconia material especially benefits patients with a thin mucosal biotype.[ii] Zirconia implants demonstrate a low affinity to plaque[iii] and studies have shown that microcirculatory dynamics in peri-implant mucosa around zirconia are comparable with those around natural teeth.[iv]
Today, many framework materials for FDPs are fabricated using CAD/CAM technology, such as zirconia, high-resistance polymers (polyether ether ketone), and hybrid ceramic restorations, which use mechanical properties and biocompatibility to provide sufficient mechanical resistance to chemical attacks and to determine clinical success (3-6).

In recent years, zirconia has been widely used in dentistry due to its excellent mechanical and aesthetics properties and its biocompatibility [1].
Zirconia abutment fabrication and metal-free-implant-supported prostheses favor a better aesthetic situation than the metal counterpart [2].
Zirconia dental implants are potential alternative to titanium dental implants.
Among esthetic restorative materials, zirconia is being widely used on both deciduous and permanent dentition [3, 4].
The sites (acidic and basic) coexist on the surface of zirconia and can interact both cooperatively and independently, based on reactions.
Overall, these features make zirconia the ideal material for core and frameworks of prosthesis in anterior and posterior region [1-3].
