Highly translucent zirconia Cercon ht: Getting the shade right and reproducible with True Color Technology
Shade matching for dental restorations is one of the most sensitive working steps in the dental laboratory. This is why every dental technician looks for the best possible platform from which to perform this step. When it comes to zirconia, Dentsply Sirona Prosthetics has set a new benchmark with its True Color Technology. There is a separate Cercon ht blank available in each of the 16 classic VITA1 shades, and each of the shades matches the standard with unprecedented accuracy.
For Increased Brilliance: Extra-Translucent Zirconia
The new extra-translucent zirconia material Cercon xt, an additional variant of this successful ceramics system, is now available to dental laboratories. Its main application is for monolithic restorations with enhanced esthetics. Here the dental laboratory can enjoy the benefits of pre-shaded blanks in the classic 16 VITA* shades — the True Color Technology approach so much appreciated in Cercon ht.
