A naturally occurring mineral with excellent bio-compatibility. When VITA In-Ceram was first introduced into the market in 1989, a new era of all-ceramic restorations began. The VITA In-Ceram slip technique allowed the production of restorations with excellent long term prognosis which included a three unit anterior all ceramic bridge.
The In-Ceram ALUMINA® slip technique has been successfully used for almost 14 years. Developments in the porcelain have shown that added strength can be provided when In-Ceram Alumina is milled from a block. The milled restoration offers the additional benefit of time flexibility to meet patient and dentist priorities.
VITA In-Ceram ALUMINA for CEREC® has a flexural strength of 500 MPa and a fracture toughness of 3.9 MPa•Ãm
Advantages for the dentist:
