In a dental lab, a job well done requires efficient and accurate work. To enable more options for efficient workflows, 3M ESPE has announced updates for the 3M True Definition Scanner and 3M ESPE Lava Plus high-translucency zirconia.
The 3M True Definition Scannerhas three new, lab-focused CAD/CAM Trusted Connections with 3Shape Dental System, Exocad DentalCAD, and Dental Wings, that seamlessly integrate with its proprietary 3M Margin Marking Software. The new Trusted Connections allow labs to apply accuracy to their entire digital workflow and offer dentists a broader selection of dental labs to work with.
3M ESPE has released Lava Plus high-translucency zirconia in a disc format for open-source milling. The 98 mm-diameter zirconia discs are available in thicknesses of 14 mm, 18 mm, and 25 mm, and in formats with and without a step. The product’s patented shading system, developed specifically for Lava Plus zirconia, offers a wide range of dyeing liquids with 18 shades for a consistent match to the VITA classical A1 – D4 shade guide (VITA Zahnfabrik), plus two additional 3M ESPE bleach shades. These dyeing liquids can also be used with the Lava Plus high-translucency enamel liquids, which are available in 100 ml bottles and in shades of Enamel Bleach, Enamel Light, and Enamel Medium.
