Like all zirconia restorations, our Nautilus restorations offer you superior strength. But, with its enhanced anatomy and availability in Classic or 3D shades, our Nautilus Full-Contour offers you a more esthetic all-zirconia option.

  • Enhanced Anatomy – Nautilus Full Contour is designed using enhanced primary and secondary anatomy, giving you a natural appearance.
  • More Translucent Zirconia – Compared to standard zirconia, 25-30% more light passes through Nautilus Full Contour, creating a more esthetic restoration.
  • More Shading Options – Nautilus Full Contour can be shaded to match your patient’s natural tooth color using both Vita Classic and 3D shades.
  • Biocompatible – No allergic reactions or tissue irritation.

Prep Requirements

  • A chamfer margin is preferred; however any traditional full-cast crown prep is acceptable. Avoid a beveled or knife-edge design.

  • No sharp or right angles.

Instructions of Adjustments and Polishing

  • Do not have patient bite in to place.
  • A fine-grit diamond bur and water spray are necessary when adjusting Nautilus Full-Contour. If the temperature of zirconia exceeds certain limits, micro-fractures and surface defects can occur, lowering the strength of the restoration.
  • Polish Nautilus Full-Contour with a small brush and diamond polishing paste.
