Fabrication of an aesthetically pleasing

The interaction between chromatic dentin and the translucent incisal area in the visible anterior tooth region has previously been a limiting factor for the use of CAD/CAM systems. CEREC Blocs C In and the software algorithm set for these blocks have changed this.

CEREC Blocs C In

The blocks consist of an inner core of highly chromatic dentin covered by a translucent layer of enamel. The dentin cores are modeled after the shape of dentin in natural teeth. The outer shape of the tooth is determined by the biogeneric data in the software. An algorithm integrated in the software aids for the right positioning of the restoration in the block, so that the exact tooth color selected by the user is achieved and an aesthetically pleasing is possible.

The dentin core is used from both sides, so the same core can be used for very narrow front teeth in the lower jaw as well as for wide front teeth in the upper jaw..

The dentist can enter the tooth color and thickness of the incisal enamel in the software. After this data is entered, the algorithm automatically positions the crown in the block in the position suitable for the color indicated.

The user can individually adjust the patient‘s enamel substance without losing  the desired color in the incisal area.

Feldspar ceramics for aesthetic chairside/labside restorations

The CEREC Blocs and CEREC Blocs PC consist of a finely structured feldspar ceramic material which is biocompatible and resembles natural tooth enamel with regard to shading, strength and abrasion resistance.

CEREC Blocs

Thanks to the outstandingly fine structures and the sophisticated manufacturing process, restorations made of these materials can be placed immediately after milling and polishing.



CEREC Blocs C Enamel-like-properties - for inlays, onlays, veneers and fully anatomical crowns

CEREC Blocs C are optimized for use for inlays, partial crowns, and veneers. CEREC Blocs C guarantee a very good color integration into the residual tooth tissue of restorations and also have a clinical survival rate of 90% after 10 years.

 

CEREC Blocs

The benefits in brief:
  • High translucency and chameleon effect
  • Abrasiveness similar to enamel
  • Vita classical colors (A1-D3 + bleach 2C)
  • Very easy to polish
  • Extremely fast material, as no glazing is needed (chairside treatment is possible)

 

The material has antagonist-friendly abrasion properties, which in combination with optimal light conducting effects and white fluorescence results in highly stable, esthetic results.

Moreover, it is possible to enhance the esthetic appearance even more with customization options (for example, VITA Akzent Plus).

CEREC Blocs C PC Polychromatic – for natural-looking anterior and posterior crowns

CEREC Blocs C PC are optimized for the use in crowns; with their three different layers based on varying degrees of color saturation (chroma) they can be optimally adapted to characteristic color gradients in restorations with respect to translucency and intensity. And all of this in Vita classical colors A1C-D3C + bleach 2C.

The benefits in brief:
  • Highly esthetic posterior crowns
  • Colors known all around the world with the Vita classical colors (A1C-D3C + bleach 2C)
  • Very easy to polish
  • No additional glazing required, making very fast, full ceramic (chairside) treatment possible
  • Natural-looking enamel-dentin-cervix layering
  • For even better results, CEREC Blocs C PC can be virtually aligned in the CEREC milling preview and inLab software
  • Used millions of times
  • Also suitable for multiple layers

 

The differentiation of a more translucent top layer, a middle dentin layer with a normal degree of color intensity, and a more strongly pigmented lower layer as well as intermediate layers ensure optimum individuality and esthetics in the anterior and posterior tooth regions.

Multilayer with CEREC Blocs C PC:

Furthermore, the multi-layer technology with CEREC Blocs C and CEREC Blocs C PC allows extremely cost-efficient production of full-ceramic bridges and crowns. The fully anatomical suggestion is split by the software into two parts: the framework structure of zirconium oxide (inCoris ZI) and the veneer structure of feldspathic ceramic (CEREC Blocs C or CEREC Blocs C PC).
