VITA Zahnfabrik (Bad Säckingen, Germany) is expanding its VITA VM LC line of light-curing microparticle-composites. In addition to the paste version, low-viscosity VITA VM LC flow additional materials will also be introduced.

24.02.2014 | VITA Zahnfabrik – 90 years as an innovative partner for practices and laboratories
The VITA Zahnfabrik success story began 90 years ago. Established on July 17th, 1924 in Essen, Germany, and based in Bad Säckingen since 1943, this company has now been family-run for three generations. With the development of the Helios tooth in the 1920s, the foundation was laid for VITA's areas of expertise ‒ denture teeth, shades and ceramics. At the time, the Helios layering was revolutionary, providing the starting point for today's VITA teeth: natural shade gradients with a structure that replicates human dentition by combining a dentin core with an enamel and incisal layer. This development enabled an unprecedented level of natural esthetics, paving the way for all VITA innovations to follow.
03.02.2014 | 90 years of innovation – VITA Zahnfabrik
90 years ago in 1924, the foundation was laid for the start of VITA Zahnfabrik H. Rauter GmbH & Co. KG.

For 90 years, VITA Zahnfabrik has been combining tradition and experience with revolutionary ideas and inspiring dynamism. The secret of our success lies in the consistent, systematic development of our core competencies within a framework of clearly-defined business divisions combined with strategic collaboration with selected partners in order to establish a strong network.

27.03.2012 | Multiple patient cases, one single software – a wealth of possibilities
"Technology is on the way to achieving such a level of perfection that humans soon won't need themselves" – at least this is what the Polish writer Stanislaw Jerzy Lec feared in the 1970s. Thankfully, it hasn't come to that. Even today, machines cannot entirely replace human beings. On the contrary, achieving the perfect result requires a combination of advanced technology and manual precision work. And the dental industry is no exception. ‒ Here, modern CAD/CAM fabrication and digital planning continue to make enormous strides. The new VITA Assist software from VITA Zahnfabrik provides support for communication, and is available for €299. It optimizes communication between the dental surgeon and dental technician as well as between the practitioner and

28.11.2011 | Den eigenen Zahnersatz aktiv mitgestalten
Patients who are being fitted with a prosthetic have usually been suffering for quite some time, and are very reserved when it comes to "false teeth". Will they fit? What will I look like if I laugh with my false teeth in? Will others notice I am wearing false teeth? Dentists and dental technicians have to alleviate these fears and convince patients that their new teeth are going to restore, not just functionality but also quality of life.
25.11.2011 | New firing unit VITA ZYRCOMAT 6000 MS:

21.03.2010 | Which advantages do VITABLOCS RealLife have from your point of view compared to other silicate ceramic blocks?
The unique characteristic of these blocks is their three-dimensional structure with their dentine core and enamel coating which corresponds to the structure of natural tooth substance featuring an arched colour gradient between dentine and enamel. Thanks to the parabolic design of the dentine core, a nature-identical reproduction of the anatomical shape of the natural tooth is possible. At the same time, the 3D block structure in combination with the new CEREC / inLab software version 3.80 enables the flexible positioning of the restoration in the block in all three spatial dimensions, so that I can now manufacture chairside restorations with a high degree of individuality.
