VITA IMPLANT SOLUTIONS (IS) are new CAD/CAM blanks for implant-supported restorations manufactured from hybrid ceramic, glass ceramic and composites, which VITA Zahnfabrik (Bad Säckingen, Germany) will be introducing at IDS 2015. The blanks feature an integrated interface (screw canal including anti-rotation lock) for an adhesive/titanium base (e.g. TiBase), making them compatible with the implant systems of many manufacturers. The IS blanks are available in three versions, VITA ENAMIC IS, VITA SUPRINITY IS and VITA CAD-Temp IS.
Best solutions for implant-supported restorations
VITA ENAMIC IS blanks are recommended for permanent restorations. Thanks to an elasticity that is similar to dentine, the hybrid ceramic is capable of absorbing the impact of masticatory forces. In addition, manufacturing of VITA ENAMIC IS superstructures can be done quickly and cost-effectively, since the material can be processed with CAD/CAM equipment with incredible speed and precision. Restorations made of hybrid ceramic can be inserted directly after polishing since no further thermal treatment is necessary. VITA SUPRINITY IS, the high-strength, zirconia-reinforced glass ceramic for permanent superstructures, will also be presented at the IDS.
Blanks made from both materials will be available in two different geometries and degrees of translucency. This allows manufacturing of both two-piece restorations consisting of a mesostructure and a crown, and one-piece monolithic abutment crowns. The one-piece solution is primarily recommended for the posterior area and the two-piece solution for implant-supported crown restorations in the anterior area.
VITA IMPLANT SOLUTIONS are rounded off with the VITA CAD-Temp IS blanks made of composite material for temporary restorations. In addition to their suitability for provisional restorations, they can also be used for creating individualized emergence profiles.
