Straumann CADCAM prosthetics now available in high-performance ceramics from VITA 

 

  • Collaboration with VITA extends Straumann’s range of CADCAM materials, which is one of the broadest on the market

 

 

Basel , 11 April 2011 – Straumann is pleased to announce that customers in Europe can now order CARES® CADCAM precision inlays, onlays, veneers, crowns and partial crowns in VITA Mark II and TriLuxe glass ceramics.

 

Supplied by VITA Zahnfabrik in Germany, VITA Mark II and TriLuxe are well-established fine-structure feldspar ceramics offering a wide range of colors with high translucence and excellent shade-matching (chameleon effect). These qualities, combined with strength and durability, make these materials an excellent choice for restorations that are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

 

Tooth and implant borne restorations designed and manufactured by Straumann® CARES® Digital Solutions are increasingly popular thanks to the accuracy of its scanner, the powerful ingenuity of its design software and the high quality and precision of its milling system. Moreover, Straumann offers one of the broadest ranges of material options on the market1 – from metals and polymers to a selection of high-performance ceramics that cater for a variety of preferences among dental laboratories.

 

The launch of Straumann CARES prosthetics in VITA ceramics follows a collaboration agreement between the two companies, which was announced at the International Dental Show in Cologne. VITA Mark II and TriLuxe restorations by Straumann are scheduled to become available to customers in other markets in the near future.
