Sirona Multilayer

Aug. 27, 2010
Rapid Layer Technology enables production of substructure and accompanying full-contour overlay with a few mouse clicks.

LONG ISLAND CITY, New York--Sirona Dental Systems has announced availability of the inLab Multilayer Design Option,.

The option, which uses new VITA Rapid Layer Technology, was announced during the CEREC 25th Anniversary Celebration--an event celebrating the 25-year anniversary of the CEREC CAD/CAM system.

VITA Rapid Layer Technology is a high-speed bridge production technique that uses Sirona inLab V3.80 software, along with the Sirona inLab MC XL milling unit, to mill the framework and corresponding full-contour overlay with a few mouse clicks. Natural-looking veneer structures can be manufactured quickly and simply.

This computerized process helps guarantee efficient production of the substructure and overlay structure at once, producing fully anatomical bridges and crowns without the need for traditional waxing, porcelain layering or pressing.

Using Sirona inLab V3.80 software, the VITA Rapid Layer Technology process starts with the generation of the anatomical multi-unit bridge or crown on screen. The software automatically calculates the data for the substructure and fully contoured overlay within a few seconds.

The framework is then milled from a VITA In-Ceram YZ block, and the full-contour overlay is milled from VITABLOCS TriLuxe forte polychromatic ceramic, matching the VITA YZ substructure with an adhesive luting composite. This creates a long-lasting bond between the substructure and veneering ceramic for an esthetic bridge restoration with long-term durability.
