Which crown is best for posterior teeth?

Solid zirconia has had remarkable success for posterior crowns, particularly for patients with heavy occlusion and bruxers who prefer a natural tooth color crown as opposed to metal. And, since there is no porcelain to chip or fracture, the repair and failure rate is less than the traditional PFM.
