Three areas of strength
Ivoclar Vivadent operates in the three product areas Direct Restoratives, Fixed Prosthetics and Removable Prosthetics. In these areas, the company offers dentists and dental technicians products and product systems that support them across the entire treatment and fabrication process and enable them to achieve esthetic results. Since its acquisition of Wieland Dental in 2012, Ivoclar Vivadent disposes of an extended range of CAD/CAM materials and equipment. With regard to digital workflows, the company offers not only high-quality products but also supports dentists and dental technicians with state-of-the-art technologies and first-class trainings and courses.
Restorative materials have traditionally been a core strength of Ivoclar Vivadent. Consequently, a number of its materials have been ranking among the leading products in the dental market for years. In addition, effective bonding agents, high-performance curing lights, patient-friendly auxiliaries and high-quality care products facilitate the work of dental professionals in the direct restorative therapy.
Veneers, crowns and bridges made of all-ceramic materials from Ivoclar Vivadent ensure highly esthetic restorations and have become an integral part of modern dentistry. Materials for metal-supported crowns and bridges, cutting-edge ceramic furnaces and a wide selection of alloys, luting cements for restorations and care products complement the range of materials in this product category.
Ivoclar Vivadent also meets exacting standards required by dental professionals in removable denture prosthetics. Age- and type-specific tooth moulds are part of the range just as are materials for highly accurate bite registrations, apparatus for the fabrication of high-precision dentures and advanced lab composites. Additionally, a range of coordinated products assists patients in the daily care of their dentures.
