What is Zirconia?

Zirconium dioxide (ZrO2), sometimes known as Zirconia is a white crystalline oxide of zirconium. Dental zirconia blocks are formed under pressure from zirconium oxide powder stabilized with yttria, plus additional additives for bonding and translucency.

Zirconia is the most preferred modern material for medical applications such as artificial hip joints.
