Vident Rapid Layer Technology

Aug. 20, 2010
Fully anatomical bridge restorations possible with the new technology.
BREA, California--VITA’s new Rapid Layer Technology is helping to revolutionize the way bridge restorations are produced. The manufacture of fully anatomical bridge restorations consisting of a framework and a veneer are now possible with the combination of CAD/CAM technology and the new Rapid Layer Technology. The computer-assisted manufacturing procedure is a high-speed bridge production that uses Sirona’s CEREC/inLab MC XL. The new process uses a simple and efficient technique of bonding the TriLuxe forte polychromatic ceramic to the VITA YZ substructure with an adhesive luting composite to create a long-lasting bond between the substructure and veneering ceramic for an esthetic bridge restoration with long-term durability. The procedure produces a time advantage as compared to the classical layering technique, and the result is reproducible. Natural-looking veneer structures can now be manufactured quickly. The VITABLOCS TriLuxe forte multi-layer block comes in a large size 40/19, which allows for digital veneering of bridge substructures of up to four units. Utilizing precolored LLI VITA YZ blocks reduces the need for coloring liquid and provides enhanced esthetics with increased color saturation and fluorescence. VITA’s Rapid Layer Technology software automatically calculates the milling data for the full contour veneering ceramic, as well as the zirconia substructure for support and minimal adjustments. The reduced zirconia substructure acts as a support for the veneering structure to enhance stability and avoid chipping.For information, call (800) 828-3839 or visit
