(Brea, CA) – VITA’s new Rapid Layer Technology is revolutionizing the way bridge restorations are produced. The manufacture of fully anatomical bridge restorations consisting of a framework and a veneer are now possible with the combination of CAD/CAM technology and VITA’s new Rapid Layer Technology. The computer-assisted manufacturing procedure is a high speed bridge production using Sirona’s CEREC/inLab MC XL. The new process uses a simple and efficient technique of bonding the TriLuxe forte polychromatic ceramic to the VITA YZ substructure with an adhesive luting composite, creating a long lasting bond between the substructure and veneering ceramic for an aesthetic bridge restoration with long term durability.  The procedure guarantees a time advantage over the classical layering technique, and what’s more, the result is absolutely reproducible. Natural looking veneer structures can now be manufactured quickly and simply.

           The VITABLOCS TriLuxe forte multi-layer block comes in a large size 40/19 which allows for digital veneering of bridge substructures of up to four units. Utilizing pre-colored LLI VITA YZ blocks reduces the need for coloring liquid and provides enhanced esthetics with increased color saturation and fluorescence. VITA’s Rapid Layer Technology software automatically calculates the milling data for both the full contour veneering ceramic, as well as the zirconia substructure for optimum support and minimal adjustments.  The reduced zirconia substructure acts as a support for the veneering structure to enhance stability and avoid chipping.

Vident has been a provider of innovative dental products since 1985 and is the North American subsidiary of VITA, manufacturer of the internationally recognized Classical Shade Guide, 3D-Master Shade System and quality VITA restorative materials.
