 Japanese dental company GC becomes Sirona’s latest material partner. The cooperation expands the global range of top-quality CAD/CAM blocks for Sirona systems offered by authorized manufacturers.

Bensheim/Salzburg. Sirona, the technology leader in the dental industry, has entered into an agreement with a new material partner for the production of CAD/CAM blocks, such as composites and other restorative materials for CEREC and inLab. The Japanese dental company GC Corporation complements the group of selected partners that manufacture high-performance materials for the milling and grinding of CAD/CAM restorations: VITA Zahnfabrik, Ivoclar Vivadent, Merz Dental, DENTSPLY and 3M ESPE. GC produces consumables, devices and equipment for dental practices and laboratories. The Tokyo-based company is the global market leader for glass-ionomer materials and also the world’s largest provider of expertise, advancements, product quality and top customer service in the fields of composites, ceramic layering and adhesive systems.

“GC is a prestigious dental company that focuses primarily on Japan and other Asian markets. As these markets are becoming increasingly important for our CAD/CAM business, we are happy to have a material partner in the region who meets our high quality standards,” says Dr. Joachim Pfeiffer, Vice President of CAD/CAM Systems at Sirona in Bensheim. Sirona expects this partnership to provide sales support in the rapidly expanding Asian markets, while GC profits through established access to Sirona CAD/CAM users worldwide.

Japan is one of the largest growth markets for CAD/CAM restorations and prostheses. The country is already very well prepared for the change to CAD/CAM technology. Therefore, innovative dental technology combined with high-quality materials is increasingly in demand by local dentists.
