Ivoclar Vivadent’s Tetric CAD composite blocks and IPS e.max ZirCAD zirconium oxide materials now can be used with Planmeca’s PlanMill milling units.
Tetric CAD is an esthetic composite block designed for producing single-unit restorations, according to a press release. Because of the material’s pronounced chameleon effect, restorations made of Tetric CAD blend into the existing tooth structure. The block is easy to use and efficient to process. The new composite blocks are available in an MT and HT level of translucency, in five and four shades respectively and in sizes I12 and C14.
IPS e.max ZirCAD LT (low translucency) is a monolithic zirconium oxide block designed for crowns and 3-unit bridges. The material allows posterior crowns to be designed in a reduced wall thickness of 0.6 mm and anterior crowns in a reduced thickness of 0.4 mm. This increases translucency. The LT blocks are available in shades BL, A1-3, B1-2 as well as in C2 and D2.
In addition, shades B3, C2 and D2 have been added to the range of Telio CAD blocks for PlanMill. The cross-linked PMMA blocks are now available in nine LT shades (BL3, A1, A2, A3, A3.5, B1, in addition to the three new shades) and in two different block sizes (B40L and B55).
