Events to address light dynamics in creation of fixed restoratives

May 24, 2005
Heraeus Kulzer will demonstrate the benefits of its recently enhanced HeraCeram porcelain system at multiple venues.

Heraeus Kulzer Inc., the North American dental subsidiary of Hanau, Germany-based Heraeus Kulzer GmbH, has announced that it will be utilizing a variety of venues to explain the advantages of light dynamics as applied to the creation of fixed restoratives.

"HeraCeram gives you a unique blend of fluorescence, opalescence and chroma," said Allen Shapiro, director of marketing for Heraeus Kulzer's laboratory division. "It provides superior uniformity that allows you to match shades perfectly regardless of the substructure."

Major Events
The recently enhanced HeraCeram porcelain system will be on display at this year's 2005 Dental Dialogue meeting, which coincides with the California Dental Association Meeting from May 12-14 in Anaheim, Calif., at booth # 307.

Throughout each day of the meeting, there will be two expert build-up demonstrations from Yuri Polyak, CDT and Jerry Cruz, CDT, as well as continuous hands-on build-up sessions to test the attendee's skills against a "master" crown on display in the booth.

Individuals who take part in the hands-on session will be entered into a random drawing to win a grand prize iPod® mini or a 2nd prize iPod® shuffle after each session. Participants have a 1-in-5 chance to win an iPod. Visitors to the Heraeus Kulzer booth will also be eligible to enter a daily, no-obligation drawing for an iPod mini.
