Colours come into play


Schaan, Liechtenstein – 5 December 2008

Ivoclar Vivadent has launched IPS e.max ZirCAD Colour Blocks, homogeneously shaded zirconium oxide blocks. The blocks are an alternative to the IPS e.max ZirCAD Colouring Liquids for white blocks and the shades are adjusted to those of IPS e.max glass-ceramics. The blocks can be processed in Sirona’s inLab system.

Shaded zirconium oxide frameworks facilitate the reproduction of the required tooth shade and thus ensure highly aesthetic veneering results. Therefore, as an alternative to the IPS e.max ZirCAD Colouring Liquids for white blocks, Ivoclar Vivadent offers the new pre-shaded IPS e.max ZirCAD Colour Blocks. With the choice between pre-shaded blocks or Colouring Liquids for individual shading, laboratories now have a variety of processing options for zirconium oxide-supported restorations.

The shade concept of the IPS e.max ZirCAD Colour Blocks is based on the IPS e.max glass-ceramics shade system. The basic shade of the framework optimally supports the aesthetic veneering result – particularly when combination restorations involving lithium disilicate and oxide ceramics are fabricated. In addition, the basic shade is suitable for fabricating zirconium oxide primary crowns and implant superstructures.

The IPS e.max ZirCAD Colour Blocks can be processed in the inLab system from Sirona. The Colour Blocks are available immediately in the two shades MO1 and MO2 as well as in six different sizes.
