Ivoclar Vivadent launches comprehensive CAD/CAM product portfolio under new brand
COLOGNE, Germany: Increasing digitalisation of the dental treatment workflow requires all the different components used in a process to be optimally coordinated. To meet this demand, Ivoclar Vivadent has extended its long-standing materials and processing expertise to the entire digital process chain with a comprehensive portfolio of CAD/CAM products for both dental laboratories and practices. The new range, under the brand Ivoclar Digital, is being presented for the first time at IDS 2017, the company announced during a press conference in Cologne in Germany today.
“This is a consistent further development, since we have accumulated significant know-how in the field of digitally processed materials with products such as IPS e.max,” said CEO Robert Ganley, explaining the expansion. “This knowledge has gone into the development of milling units and support services that will allow dental professionals to improve their efficiency and performance. They are designed to deliver predictable and aesthetic results.”
For Ivoclar Digital, new products have been added to the company’s range of aesthetic, state-of-the-art CAD/CAM materials for fixed, removable and implant-supported prosthetic restorations, including versatile ZirCAD blocks and a range of discs for the IPS e.max system. Dentists and laboratories will be able to digitally produce dental restorations quickly and easily with four new PrograMill digital milling units that are suited for laboratories of all sizes. The range of high-end scanners from 3Shape has also been extended to include the new 3Shape E series, which, together with the Dental Designer software and exclusively developed Ivoclar Digital software add-ons, is aimed at increasing the reliability and efficiency of fully digitised processing procedures. The Ivoclar Digital offering includes Service+, a dental outsourcing partner, that, according to Ivoclar, will assist laboratories entering CAD/CAM fabrication by taking on design and production orders and providing them with access to an extended range of materials and indications.
“We plan to enhance our customer-focused market strength significantly with the introduction of Ivoclar Digital. This is a unique new digital product portfolio based on our core competences in digital materials and processes,” commented Ganley.
Visitors to IDS can experience the new portfolio and other innovations from Ivoclar Vivadent, such as the new cordless Bluephase Style 20i curing light, boasting the latest LED generation, over the next six days at Booth A020–B029 in Hall 11.3.
