Aug. 20, 2010
Ceramic block offers 3-dimensional esthetics for anterior chairside restorations.
BREA, California--Adding to its selection of VITA machinable ceramics, Vident has announces debuted VITABLOCS RealLife.The prduct is a new dimension in anterior restorations. As a ceramic block that offers 3-dimensional esthetics for anterior chairside restorations, VITABLOCS Real Life helps maximize the potential of CEREC technology beyond posterior teeth. Using Sirona CEREC or inLab 3D V3.80 software, the technology helps make it easy to change the position of the restoration in the block, as needed, to reproduce the individual requirements for translucency, chroma, and lightness. The restoration can be moved in all three spatial directions for design flexibility. A highly esthetic result can be created with a simple click of the mouse, significantly reducing design time.The product’s curved dentine core with surrounding enamel coat mimics the tooth’s natural enamel layered over the supporting dentin shade to providing natural esthetics. RealLife also eliminates the need for characterizing with stains or individualizing with veneering materials for efficient production and natural shading without hand layering. RealLife VITABLOCS are composed of the same fine-structure, four micron particle size feldspar ceramic as VITABLOCS Mark II/TriLuxe to offer polishing properties and abrasion resistance with reduced wear on grinding tools, margin chipping and polishing time. “The VITABLOCS RealLife machinable ceramic blocks are designed to offer the highest level of individualization,” explained Janet Siwinski, product marketing manager for Vident. “The unique characteristics of this block provides proven clinical reliability and allow for efficient production and reduced design time, making it the ideal solution for anterior restorations.”For information, call (800) 828-3839 or visit read more about Vident, go to Vident.To comment on this product, go to
