The block goes into its holder like this

April 4

The block goes into its holder like this

"The quality of the products I produce is important to me." Now, the correct holder for the different milling machines has to be adhered to the block. This may sound trivial to some, but even here, absolute precision is needed. The machine must be correctly adjusted for each batch.

The tray with the CAD/CAM blocks which have met strict quality standards, will now be inserted. The hissing of pneumatic cylinders and the movements of axles are now audible. A pair of grippers returns again and again to the tray where the sorted VITABLOCS are waiting and automatically picks up one block after the other. The attentive eyes of the machine operator notice every detail. The correct holder is already waiting in the socket: a precise amount of two-component adhesive is automatically applied to its composite surface. For reliable bonding, there should not be too little adhesive. Too much glue could cause unwanted overflow.

Finally, the attachment and block are brought together and then secured with a clamp until the bond has set sufficiently. A little bit too high up, a touch too much to the right or left, should not happen. Only if the holder is glued completely straight and centered with the block, can it later be precisely clamped in so that exact grinding results can be achieved in the grinding machine. The machine operator carefully checks the bonds at the end with focused concentration. Samples with shearing tests provide additional security for a smooth CAD/CAM workflow in the laboratory and dental practice.

The position of the holder is meticulously checked.

The inlay with the chameleon effect: super translucent VITA ENAMIC ST

VITA ENAMIC® ST

If you are looking for the perfect inlay material for everyday practice, look no further than VITA ENAMIC ST. The super translucent CAD/CAM block for efficient chair-side treatment is based on the clinically proven hybrid ceramic blueprint, which has been in use since 2013. Under pressure and heat, a porous pre-sintered fine structure feldspar ceramic block (86% by weight) is infiltrated with a polymer (14% by weight). The dual network also offers clear advantages with regard to inlay treatment: the minimum layer thickness in the isthmus range is only one millimeter, which allows for a minimally invasive and defect-oriented preparation. The precise edges and the excellent edge stability ensure a perfect fit. Firing is not required. After grinding, the restoration is finished and polished, and it is then ready for integration. If desired, the light-curing stains from the VITA ENAMIC STAINS kit can also be used for individualization and glazing. 

VITA ENAMIC ST hybrid ceramic – everything else is just composite

Due to the dominant ceramic network, the material can be etched and silanized in the usual way with hydrofluoric acid. This not only leads to the best adhesion values when fully adhesive bonding is used, but also saves the need to purchase a sand blasting unit, as is the required for CAD/CAM composite blocks. A dual network as with VITA ENAMIC does not exist with highly filled composites: they are made with glass or ceramic fillers embedded in a polymer matrix in the familiar manner. To apply the term hybrid ceramic to these materials is therefore misleading.

VITA ENAMIC ST is primarily suitable for all restorations limited by enamel: inlays, onlays and table tops.
