Image Gallery would like to announce that we have bought the Ceramill Motion 2 Mill, the most versatile hybrid 5-axis mill on the market made by Amann Girrbach. This will allow us to have complete control over the work we provide to you and your patients. We strive very hard to make sure we create only the best work possible out of the best materials available. We do extensive research on all the equipment and materials we provide to your office. We will be providing you with complete translucency on what materials we use and why we are using them. As always we welcome any feedback you have so we can utilize new technology with the newest materials but keep control of the prosthesis you are placing in your patients’ mouths. Dentistry is rapidly changing; Image Gallery understands how much your world is changing in the dental office, with technology, insurance, corporate dentistry, team members, materials, bonding, FDA rules etc. We want to make your job as easy as possible by providing you the tools needed to know that you are giving your patients something that is going to last.
Each month we will provide you with research we are doing on the products we are using. If you have something you would like us to research for you let us know. This month we are providing you with information on the zirconia we are currently using. We have changed from the BioZ and CubeX2 to a more esthetic zirconia from Amman Girrbach, obviously a German Company. We are using Zolid and Zolid FX which is the higher translucent material. We also have new coloring materials and are coloring each case as to what is best for that situation. We will hand paint bridges before sintering because pontics need more coloring than abutment teeth. Darker shades need more time in solutions than lighter shades. Denser zirconia needs stronger intensity than the FX translucent shades which we can use a dimmer to dilute the solutions. Please give us feedback on the new zirconia. As always we provide you with an iDentceram Certificate so you know what zirconia and porcelain we are using.
So you can see we are at work solving solutions to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible in your office. We are also redoing our RX forms to make it easier for you to choose what materials you want to use. Please see the enclosed flyer on the new Zirconia we are using and feel free to give me call with any questions you have.
We appreciate your continued support;
