densely sintered
Explanation:
I am not an expert in the field but numerous native web references support my suggestion.

Three examples:

http://www.nature.com/bdj/journal/v186/n9/full/4800134a.html
"Increasing patient expectations regarding the appearance of restorations continue to test the ingenuity and skill of the dental team. To this end the quest for sufficiently strong, metal-free, all-ceramic restorations to function in all areas of the mouth continues apace. We report on a possible solution to this problem that uses computer-aided design/computer-aided milling (CAD/CAM) technology coupled with a novel, ***densely sintered***, ceramic material. In this article we offer suggestions for case selection, preparation design, and luting procedures, and in addition illustrate these with a number of completed cases."

"Modern requisites for ceramic restorations

The main esthetic drawback of PFM crowns is the metallic infrastructure which is a barrier to light diffusion. Alumina and zirconia based "all-ceramic" restorations now feature high mechanical properties and are reliable prostheses without sacrifying their obvious esthetic and biological qualities.

CAD-CAM generated ***densely sintered*** and aluminum zirconia oxide infrastructures for crowns, anterior bridges and laminates are now fabricated in two production centers, one in the US and one in Sweden."
