(Brea, CA) VITAs high quality, clinically proven Machinable Ceramics are now offered in Disc form for Open CAD/CAM Systems. The Discs fit most Open CAD/CAM Systems, making them convenient and economical to process with optimal materials. Available in VITA In-Ceram YZ, VITA CAD-Temp, and CAD-Waxx, the VITA Discs are manufactured using dry pressing procedures, which promote an assured uniformity, regardless of thickness.

Featuring a diameter of 98 mm and a height of 14, 18 or 20 mm, the VITA In-Ceram YZ Discs are ideal for multi-unit bridge structures with long spans. Up to 40 single restorations can be milled or cut with open CAD/CAM Systems, permitting optimal use of the material. With a flexural strength benefit of >900 MPa and an above average fracture toughness of 5.9 MPa, VITA In-Ceram YZ Discs are exceptionally strong. Made of zirconium dioxide partially stabilized with yttrium, the state of the art, biocompatible material in the VITA In-Ceram YZ Discs offers high corrosion resistance and low thermal conductivity. Each individual Disc is identified with the enlargement factor clearly printed on it, which aids in the precise milling of restorations and promotes an assured fit. VITA In-Ceram YZ Discs are backed by a 10-year warranty.

Ideal for long-term temporary restorations for open CAD/CAM systems, VITA CAD-Temp Discs are made of machinable polymer composite material which has the perfect blend of strength and elasticity. VITA CAD-Temp Discs exhibit lasting color stability and natural fluorescence in several monocolor shades. The exceptional esthetics and easy shade matching make the Discs a top choice for multiple treatment indications, particularly for implant patients where long term tissue healing is prescribed. And since the Discs are compatible with all provisional cements, there is no need to change your current temporary cementation products or techniques.

VITA CAD-Waxx Discs are a millable, filler-free acrylate polymer that can be used in place of wax for producing full-contour restorations. This extremely pliable material is easier to work with than wax and eliminates the labor-intensive manual wax-up process and eliminates marginal creep. VITA CAD-Waxx Discs are indicated for copings and bridge frameworks using the lost wax technique and can be used for the fabrication of surgical stents. The marginal accuracy of restorations can be checked intraorally before the final restoration is produced, eliminating re-makes due to poor marginal fit.

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.
