VITA SUPRINITY - the new generation of glass ceramic

Fig. 1: New: the zirconia reinforced lithium silicate ceramic VITA SUP... (PresseBox) (Bad Säckingen, ) With the zirconia reinforced lithium silicate ceramic, in short ZLS, VITA Zahnfabrik has developed a new generation of glass ceramic materials in collaboration with Degudent GmbH and the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC.

The new glass ceramic is marketed by VITA Zahnfabrik under the name of VITA SUPRINITY. With a zirconium dioxide content around ten times that of traditional CAD/CAM glass ceramic in combination with a particularly fine-grained and homogeneous structure, ZLS ensures excellent mechanical properties. The high strength and reliability of the new material gives CAD/CAM practice and laboratory users a wide range of possibilities for application.

VITA SUPRINITY is distinguished by its outstanding mechanical strength and is also highly user-friendly. The new glass ceramic allows easy manual reworking and excellent polishing, and can also be crystallized without auxiliary firing paste. Furthermore, its optimum edge stability ensures improved precision. The end results are esthetically impressive with their natural translucency, fluorescence and opalescence. With a wide range of indications including anterior and posterior crowns, supra-constructions on implants as well as veneers, inlays and onlays, the new generation of glass ceramic is highly versatile. The material is available in the geometries LS14 (18 x 14 x 12 mm) for the CEREC / inLab MC XL system in the shades 0M1, A1, A2, A3.5, B2, C2 and D2, each in two different degrees of translucency (T = Translucent, HT = High Translucent).

The VITA SUPRINITY Polishing Sets are recommended for the polishing of VITA SUPRINTIY restorations. Shade characterization is possible with the new VITA AKZENT Plus stains. The fine-structure feldspar ceramic VITA VM 11 was developed especially for the individualization of restorations made of the new glass ceramic. The market introduction of VITA SUPRINITY, together with the low-melting veneering ceramic and the special polishing instruments, is scheduled for autumn 2013.
