Dental ceramics made of the natural product feldspar

"Did the supplier do a good job with the pre-sorting?" VITA Zahnfabrik regularly inspects the quality and properties of feldspar rock which is the basis for ceramic dental materials, not just in the raw material warehouse but also directly at the site of the mine. Each individual stone is inspected by hand for impurities. Deposits of mica and quartz give information about the degree of purity. The expert knows: "The stones must always correspond to a typical appearance in order to be able to meet the VITA quality criteria during course of production." The geologist's experienced inspection is indispensable for this. Only the quality is verified in the pre-inspection are the stones washed, broken and sorted.

In a second step, firing samples and chemical analyses provide more in-depth information about the quality of the raw material. Only the best feldspar then becomes the precious fine-structure feldspar ceramic from which all VITA veneering material lines are made. With computer support, the natural material is used in the form of the proven VITABLOCS in the milling unit. The unique CAD/CAM hybrid ceramic VITA ENAMIC is based internally on a porous fired fine-structure feldspar ceramic network, which is then infiltrated with a polymer under pressure and heat.

Feldspar rock is the reliable basis for highly esthetic and biocompatible restorations with functional material properties. There is a piece of nature in every restoration.

VITA Veneering Materials. VITAVM® The system of unlimited possibilities

 "Good material is the core of every restoration. It is one of the most essential tools for the dental technician, and provides form and function for creativity." Renato Carretti

The VITA VM Concept:

  • a veneering concept for any indication, for metal-ceramic, all-ceramic and composite restorations
  • available in VITA SYSTEM 3D-MASTER and VITA classical A1–D4 shades.
  • superb processing characteristics, superior modelling and excellent milling and polishing properties
  • minimal shrinkage behavior of the ceramic and ability for individual adjustments
  • The innovative fine-structure ceramics and composite materials have outstanding chemical and physical properties. especially in situ
  • Thermal shock resistance, acid solubility, flexural strength and many more values that are consistently measured and included
  • To ensure perfect bonding, all ceramics have been matched with the CTE of the substructure material
  • All composite components have been perfectly matched with the indications and feature excellent shade stability and low plaque affinity

The indications of the veneering materials

The designations of the VITA VM ceramic components are based on the CTE range of the veneering material.

  • VITA VM7 for the veneering of oxide ceramic substructures with a CTE range of 7.2 – 7.8.
  • VITA VM 9 for the veneering of zirconia substructures with a CTE of approximately 10.5. Also for individualizing VITABLOCS and the VITA PM 9 press ceramic pellets.
  • VITA VM 11 for the individualization of restorations made of zirconia-reinforced lithium silicate ceramic (ZLS), especially for VITA SUPRINITY PC.
  • VITA VM 13 for the veneering of metal substructures made of conventional alloys with a CTE range of 13.8 –15.2.
  • VITA VM 15 for the veneering of metal substructures of multi-indication alloys (especially eco alloys) with a CTE range of 16.0 –17.3

VITA VMK Master®
For full veneering of metal substructures in the conventional CTE range

VITA VMK Master is a natural feldspar veneering ceramic for conventional bonding alloys (approx. 13.8 - 15.2 µm/mK), regardless of whether the conventional alloys are cast, milled or sintered.

  • Precise and reliable processing.
  • Masterful in reliability, practicality and esthetics – that's VITA VMK Master.

VITA VM LC
VITA VM CC

The indications of the veneering resins

The designations of the VITA VM resin components VM LC and VM CC are based on the type of polymerization (LC = Light Curing, CC = Cold Curing)

VITA VM LC light-curing microparticle composite for fixed and removable restorations for extraoral use; for veneering metal and composite substructures, individualizing VITA CAD Temp, VITA ENAMIC and VITA resin teeth

VITA VM CC filler-free cold-curing resin for extraoral fabrication of temporary restorations, for bonding VITA resin teeth and for repairs VITA VM CC filler-free cold-curing resin for extraoral fabrication of temporary restorations; for bonding VITA resin teeth and for repairs
