Zenostar system shines in new splendor
Schaan, Liechtenstein – 3 October 2014
Extended portfolio, optimized processing properties and enhanced coordination with Ivoclar Vivadent products provide added benefits for customers.
Zenostar is the zirconium oxide system from Wieland Dental. With its versatile range of indications for single-tooth restorations up to multi-unit bridges, the material offers a broad selection of processing options and thus even more flexibility, efficiency and reliability – particularly now that Zenostar is compatible with the IPS e.max veneering system from Ivoclar Vivadent.
As of now, Zenostar offers manifold processing options and high efficiency for the fabrication of full-contour restorations and frameworks. This is made possible by two innovations: The first novelty is the Zenostar T-Disc portfolio (previous name: Zenostar Zr Translucent) featuring a new colour code. By renaming the translucent Zenostar Zr disc into Zenostar T, the colour codes now match the ones of IPS e.max from Ivoclar Vivadent. Given the addition of the new T3 shade, all 16 A-D tooth shades are even easier to reproduce. Moreover, the reduced disc hardness leads to enhanced milling properties and longer milling tool service lives. The adjusted and optimized scaling factor provides for an even higher accuracy of fit of the restorations.
The second innovation is the introduction of Zenostar MO (Medium Opacity), which replaces Zenostar Zr Bridge. Due to the slightly higher opacity, the Zenostar MO discs are the ideal material for veneering framework structures. The discs are available in four different shades (MO1 to MO4) as well as without shading (MO0). A preshaded material has thus become part of the product offering. Furthermore, the designation MO blends in with the shade philosophy of IPS e.max.
