Trust meets technology—The best of both worlds presented at IDS



Mon. 6. March 2017


BIEL, SWITZERLAND/COLOGNE, Germany: Swiss manufacturer Cendres+Métaux has been a trusted partner in the dental and medical business for over 100 years. The group has announced that it will be expanding its CAD/CAM milling services and adding dental alloys to its materials portfolio. Cendres+Métaux now offers permanent implant prostheses milled from precious metal, compatible with the most common implant platforms and for natural teeth. All products will be on display during the International Dental Show (IDS).

The combination of CAD/CAM workflow and the evidence-based use of precious metal for the production of reconstructive prostheses, which has been trusted in dentistry for decades, allows easy realisation of complex, tension-free superstructures with a high precision fit.

Precious metal offers optimal properties for biocompatible and high-quality dentures. Compared with other materials, such as cobalt–chromium or zirconia, precious metal has superior mechanical properties and is therefore better adapted to the structure and functional requirements of the mouth.


  • Easy realisation of complex superstructures in precious metal
  • Available for the most common implant systems
  • Evidence-based use of material for reconstructive prostheses
  • High-precision and tension-free fit owing to CAD/CAM technology
  • Easy processing, no error-prone processes.
