SOUTH BEND, Ind., March 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Heraeus Kulzer, provider of esthetic dental solutions, and Sensable Dental,
leading provider of Touch-Enabled dental restoration design and
fabrication solutions, announced today that Sensable Dental is
integrating the Heraeus Premium line digital tooth library into its
award-winning Intellifitâ„¢ Digital Restoration System.
Dental labs worldwide using Intellifit now can utilize Heraeus Premium
virtual teeth when designing natural-looking dental restorations for
dentists and their patients with digital speed, precision and
consistency.  

In 2009,
Heraeus licensed its popular Mondial tooth line to Sensable. The
addition of Heraeus’ Premium tooth library further extends the
versatility of Sensable’s Intellifit for creating a wide variety of restorations
including metal and flexible partials, crowns, bridges,veneers and
full contour substructures and overstructures.  Officially launched in
early 2008 and used by dental labs worldwide,Sensable’s Intellifit
system is the first and only TE (Touch Enabled) CAD/CAM system for
designing both fixed and removable restorations.

For years,
Heraeus has set the standard for natural dental esthetics and
functionality by retaining the natural anatomy and morphology of each
tooth. By integrating the Premium line virtual teeth, Sensable’s
Intellifit system expands dental labs’ choice in tooth libraries to
jump-start their digital designs and achieve greater precision and
consistency in the restorations they create.  

“Heraeus
denture teeth have long been synonymous with high-end excellence –
providing the patient with both exceptional esthetics and function,”
said Bob Steingart, president of Sensable
Dental. “By integrating the Premium line digital tooth library into the
Intellifit system, we continue to fulfill our promise to provide dental
labs with the utmost in versatility, flexibility and productivity.”

to be able to use our complementary strengths and expertise to provide
solutions that allow dental labs to add to their bottom line while
providing superior results to the dentists,” says Chris Holden, President of Heraeus Kulzer.
