New to the Market
A | CEREC® Zirconia and CEREC SpeedFire
Combining the new CEREC SpeedFire furnace and CEREC Zirconia material, dentists can now deliver full-contour crowns and small bridges made of full-strength, high-quality zirconium oxide in a single visit.
CEREC Zirconia is a pre-shaded translucent zirconium oxide available in 10 classic VITA shades. The material is milled in an enlarged form and then densely sintered to its final size in the new sintering furnace, CEREC SpeedFire. The oversized mill facilitates a new level of precision, leading to superbly fitting restorations. The sintering process takes 10 to 15 minutes for crowns and less than 30 minutes for bridges. The subsequent glaze firing gives a high-gloss finish to the restoration.
Other benefits include minimal tooth reduction, reduced cost because zirconia is less expensive than alternative materials, and less postoperative sensitivity due to the use of traditional cementing techniques.
The short process to produce CEREC Zirconia restorations is both convenient and economical. With this introduction, Dentsply Sirona also offers a new wet/dry mill option for its milling units. Dry milling reduces the overall processing time for zirconia and, combined with one of the world’s fastest sintering cycles, enables the chairside procedure.
B | 3.1 mmD Eztetic™ Implant
The 3.1 mmD EZTETIC IMPLANT offers a strong, esthetic solution for narrow anterior spaces with a precise implant-abutment connection that reduces micromovement and microleakage.
C | Locator R-TX
The Locator R-TX improves on the most widely used overdenture attachment system by increasing potential angle correction from 40° to 60° and providing more abutment durability with a carbon nitride coating. The Locator R-TX also features a gingiva-colored abutment and denture cap for a more esthetic result.
D | IP Temp Cement Capsules
Shofu’s bio-interactive IP Temp Cement, now available in capsules, helps create an effective microbial barrier between the prosthesis and the tooth. Very low film thickness of 10 µm and easy removal of the excess material make the cement an indispensable tool in the provision of final prostheses.
