With the help of Kuraray Noritake’s powerful material, this clinician helps patients achieve the smiles they want without sacrificing the durability they need.


Restoring damaged or missing teeth is an essential aspect of modern dentistry. Advances in materials and techniques have improved dentists’ ability to achieve predictable, long-lasting outcomes. One such advance is the use of chairside esthetic zirconia crowns, which provide excellent strength and durability without compromising esthetics.

Katana Zirconia ONE


The new and improved block, KATANA™ Zirconia ONE, is a multilayered block consisting of 4 layers of zirconia in graduated shades. The block allows the chairside fabrication of natural-tooth-colored restorations, eliminating additional sintering time. The flexural strength has improved to 933 MPa.
