Master dental technician Anett Böttcher (Steinhoff & Günther Dental, Weisswasser, Germany) is celebrating an anniversary this year. She has been working as a dental technician for 30 years, and at the Steinhoff & Günther Dental laboratory for 26 years. Interaction with patients is especially important to her and the entire team. The team is always looking for the best materials in order to meet the needs and desires of patients who wear dentures. Their latest discovery is the VITAPAN EXCELL, the next generation of the legendary VITAPAN ready-to-use tooth, and an efficient, versatile solution with outstanding material properties. Aesthetic properties that mimic nature have been consistently implemented in the design of this premium multi-purpose tooth.
Ms. Böttcher, what do you like most about VITAPAN EXCELL molds and why?
We were impressed by the variety of shapes and sizes, as well as the anatomical structure. The tooth is suitable for a wide range of applications and has an extremely natural appearance.
What can you tell us about the color and play of light with VITAPAN EXCELL?
The natural interplay of morphology, shade, light transmission and reflection makes the VITAPAN EXCELL a very lifelike and aesthetic anterior tooth.
What are the advantages of the uniquely layered structure of VITAPAN EXCELL?
Like the structure of a natural tooth, there is a harmonious shade gradient from the neck to the incisal edge, which has a specific character. Shade accuracy is also excellent, both with respect to the shade guide and in combination with telescopic veneers and the VITAPAN LINGOFORM posterior tooth.
How does the VITAPAN EXCELL prosthetic tooth lend itself to processing and polishing?
Its excellent abrasion stability ensures safe and effective grinding and polishing. In our experience, the new tooth is very easy to process in every respect and allows for harmonious results.
What are the best applications for VITAPAN EXCELL prosthetic teeth?
We have tested the new anterior tooth for all kinds of applications, from full dentures to combination work. Our conclusion: It is excellent for all applications.
What kind of feedback have you had from clinicians about VITAPAN EXCELL prosthetics?
Our customers, just like my colleagues and I, really like the surface structure with its beautiful play of light and color.
