(Brea, CA) – Adding to their already popular selection of VITA machinable ceramics, Vident announces the roll-out of VITABLOCS® RealLife, a quality new dimension in anterior restorations. As the first ceramic block offering 3-dimensional esthetics for anterior chairside restorations, VITABLOCS Real Life maximizes the potential of CEREC technology beyond posterior teeth. Using Sirona CEREC or inLab 3D V3.80 software, the technology makes it easy to change the position of the restoration in the block, as needed, to reproduce the individual requirements for translucency, chroma and lightness. The restoration can be moved in all three spatial directions for design flexibility. A highly esthetic result can be created with a simple click of the mouse, significantly reducing design time.
The product’s curved dentine core with surrounding enamel coat, mimics the tooth’s natural enamel layered over the supporting dentin shade, providing natural, unsurpassed esthetics. RealLife also eliminates the need for characterizing with stains or individualizing with veneering materials for fast efficient production and natural shading without hand layering. RealLife VITABLOCS are composed of the same fine-structure, 4 micron particle size feldspar ceramic as VITABLOCS Mark II/TriLuxe, offering excellent polishing properties and abrasion resistance with reduced wear on grinding tools, margin chipping and polishing time.
“The VITABLOCS RealLife machinable ceramic blocks are designed to offer the highest level of individualization,” explains Janet Siwinski, product marketing manager for Vident. “The unique characteristics of this block provide proven clinical reliability and allow for efficient production and reduced design time, making it the ideal solution for anterior restorations.”
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.
