February 22nd, 2018 Kuraray Noritake Dental will introduce KATANA Zirconia Block at the Chicago Mid-Winter meeting. The new multi-layered, KATANA Zirconia Block provides more translucency while maintaining high flexural strength (763 MPa). The blocks are indicated for use with the Dentsply Sirona CEREC® CAD/CAM system and SpeedFire™ ovens. With 15-minute milling and 30-minute sintering (for cases involving a crown using dry milling), the KATANA Zirconia Block provides an excellent alternative to lithium disilicated-based glass ceramics. Customers will be able to place initial orders through Henry Schein, Inc. and Patterson Dental Supply for shipment at the end of March.
All single-unit anterior and posterior restorations
