Dentsply International introduces the Celtra Duo Zirconia-Reinforced Lithium Silicate (ZLS) milling block
Dentsply International Inc. launched the new Celtra Duo Zirconia-Reinforced Lithium Silicate (ZLS) milling block during the 2016 Chicago Midwinter Meeting.
Dentsply International's new fully crystallized Celtra Duo Zirconia-Reinforced Lithium Silicate (ZLS) milling block contains high glass content and features a zirconia-reinforced lithium silicate microstructure, resulting in a balance of durability, translucency, and opalescence for a natural-looking restoration. Celtra Duo ZLS is the only milling block material that can be processed in two different ways, providing the clinician complete control for each individual restorative case.
Celtra Duo is a threefold functional zirconia-reinforced lithium silicate (ZLS) block indicated for single-unit restorations, including crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. Celtra Duo blocks possess the unique capacity to be processed in two ways—either milled and polished or milled and fired. This dual-pathway component gives the clinician complete control in determining the appropriate solution to apply for each individual restorative case. Moreover, Celtra Duo ZLS can be processed by dry fire, eliminating the need for glaze.
The ZLS microstructure is composed of fine-grained lithium crystallites that contain high glass content and an exceptional balance of opalescence, fluorescence, and translucency, resulting in a natural-looking restoration. Additionally, the 10% zirconia content reinforces the glass matrix without clouding, while yielding high flexural strength properties for detailed margins and easy polishing. Celtra Duo ZLS can be used with the same milling units as all-ceramic restorations, including the inLab MC XL.
“Celtra Duo was specifically designed to provide doctors and patients with unique benefits that no other block holds,” remarked Dr. Markus Vollmann, Dentsply director of development and application technologies and creator of Celtra Duo ZLS. “Optimized aesthetics combined with a two-pathway option in one fully crystallized block enables clinicians to place a durable, naturally shaded, beautiful restoration. With an ultra-fine microstructure, the blocks are milled in a final crystallized state, possessing outstanding polishing properties and allowing the clinician the ability to shade match directly from the milling unit. We have already received remarkable feedback from both clinicians and patients on this revolutionary new restorative solution.”
