Smart & efficient – Ceramill CAD/CAM nesting concept for multilayer resins & zirconias

The sophisticated nesting concept within the Ceramill workflow makes it possible to cover two Vita shades with only one Multilayer blank. This applies to both Ceramill A-Temp Multilayer resin as well as Zolid FX Multilayer zirconia. However, there are a few things to take into consideration to obtain the perfect shade result. The correct size is most important here!

Ceramill Sintron – indispensable in our laboratory!

Ich bin seit 2010 Laborleiter bei der Dentaltechnik Dr. Lerner GmbH. Wir sind ein eher kleines Labor mit vier Mitarbeitenden. Seit 15 Jahren habe ich mich auf den Bereich Teleskoptechnik mit den verschiedensten Materialien spezialisiert und bin somit also Teleskoptechniker mit Leib und Seele. 2013 stand die Entscheidung für ein CAD/CAM-System an; warum ich mich letzten Endes für das komplette Inhouse-System von Amann Girrbach entschieden habe, war vor allem dem Sintermetall Ceramill Sintron geschuldet.

Close-up: Zirconia surfaces

MDT Joachim Maier ran an ad hoc test series to analyse the effects of mechanical processing on sintered zirconia surfaces. The test involved using an atomic force microscope to examine the degree of damage caused to zirconia surfaces by grinding them with various diamond instruments (see image gallery above with the results). In the excerpt from his study published here he also provides hints as to how surfaces can nevertheless remain homogeneous.
