Starting in 2016, COLTENE will enter the CAD/CAM materials market when it begins selling the new BRILLIANT Crios material for Sirona’s CEREC CAD/CAM System.
The reinforced composite blocks of material are designed to provide high performance with the benefits of a hybrid composite restoration and the precision fabrication of the CEREC system, according to a press release.
The material combines the properties of COLTENE’s MIRIS and BRILLIANT EverGlow materials for high flexural strength and elasticity with a shock absorbing effect. The material is highly wear resistant and kind to opposing teeth, with a long-lasting luster. It causes less wear on milling burs than glass ceramics, and can be repaired intraorally with a corresponding hybrid composite.
BRILLIANT Crios will be available in nine low- and four high-translucency shades, and it can be characterized using a dental composite. It is suited for fabricating inlays, onlays, crowns and veneers.
