The finished veneering ceramic is inserted with a filling nozzle into the plastic vial. Exactly 50 grams pass through a funnel into each container. A balanced scale controls the filling quantity. The full vial is now automatically sealed with a plastic lid until it is manually reopened for use in the dental laboratory. In the end, each technician on site must know what kind of veneering ceramics he or she is dealing with and in which shade. This means that the journey of the ceramic vial is far from over: Now it awaits the corona treatment, which involves an unexpected turn on the conveyor belt. Directly above the plastic lid, two electrodes generate a spark, which creates a controlled plasma flame. The flame is blown onto the lid surface. This opens the plastic pores, which can absorb color and thus the lettering via pad printing. "If we did not do that, the color would not hold. Everything runs completely automatically." After half an hour, the pores close again. Then the lettering is securely integrated in the plastic. The fully automated journey of the vial continues on. Pneumatic cylinders now fix it securely to allow the appropriate imprint on the body of the vial as well. Article name, shade and part of the article number are added permanently on both the lid and body of the vial. As a result, the veneering material can be properly classified in the laboratory without any chance of them being mixed up. Using the article number, each production batch can be clearly traced. This process requires a lot of effort, but it pays off. The small lettering provides a big benefit.

Perfect interaction: veneering VITA YZ® with VITAVM®9
VITA VM 9 is a highly-esthetic, fine-structure feldspar ceramic that is perfectly adapted to the CTE value of zirconia frameworks (approx. 10.5, e.g. such as VITA YZ) – regardless of whether they are white, colored or translucent.
In addition, you can also use VITA VM 9 for individualizing restorations made from VITABLOCS MARK II and VITA PM 9 press ceramic pellets.
The main components are pure-grade potash and albite feldspar materials that offer brilliant shade effects as well as optimum physical properties, such as extreme flexural strength values.
Thanks to its homogeneous, compact surface, VITA VM 9 supports outstanding grinding and polishing, particularly in situ. This results in smooth and densely compact surfaces.
Accumulation of plaque on the ceramic surface is significantly reduced, supporting the patient in caring for their high-quality restoration.
VITA VM 9 is a high-quality system component provided by the innovative VITA VM concept – the universal solution for all common indications. Metal-ceramics, all-ceramics or composite: the possibilities are endless!
VITA AKZENT Plus and VITA INTERNO stains are also available for individual finalization.

Natural care for discoloration and metallic post abutments
Natural restorations o of incisors is the most demanding of the dental disciplines. Cases of discoloration of the dentine and/or metallic pivot teeth/stump teeth pose a special esthetic
challenge. Here, dental technicians have to choose a material mix which provides a reliable mask, but also allows for natural shading and lighting.
In the following case, Master Dental Technician Show Yamamoto (Tokyo, Japan) shows how such a clinical situation can be successfully solved with the VITA YZ zirconium dioxide and VITA VM 9 veneering ceramic. The clinical treatment and intraoral photography were carried out by Dr. Takuya Yada (Tokyo, Japan).
