Dental labs worldwide using Intellifit now can use Heraeus Premium virtual teeth when designing natural-looking dental restorations for dentists and their patients with digital speed, precision, and consistency.

In 2009, Heraeus, a provider of esthetic dental solutions, licensed its Mondial tooth line to Sensable, a provider of Touch-Enabled dental restoration design and fabrication solutions.

The addition of Heraeus’ Premium tooth library further extends the versatility of Sensable’s Intellifit for creating a variety of restorations including metal and flexible partials, crowns, bridges, veneers, and full contour substructures and overstructures. Officially launched in early 2008 and used by dental labs worldwide, Sensable’s Intellifit system is a TE (Touch Enabled) CAD/CAM system for designing fixed and removable restorations.

For years, Heraeus has retained the natural anatomy and morphology of each tooth. By integrating the Premium line virtual teeth, Sensable’s Intellifit system expands dental labs’ choice in tooth libraries to jump-start their digital designs and achieve greater precision and consistency in the restorations they create.

“Heraeus denture teeth have long been synonymous with high-end excellence, providing the patient with both exceptional esthetics and function,” said Bob Steingart, president of Sensable Dental. “By integrating the Premium line digital tooth library into the Intellifit system, we continue to fulfill our promise to provide dental labs with the utmost in versatility, flexibility and productivity.”

Added Chris Holden, president of Heraeus Kulzer, “We’re pleased to be able to use our complementary strengths and expertise to provide solutions that allow dental labs to add to their bottom line while providing superior results to the dentists."

The Heraeus Premium tooth library will be included in the newest version of Intellifit, which was announced in Chicago in February 2011 at three dental lab industry events timed with the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting.
