Reshaping Canines to Create Lateral Incisors
Kaufmann-Jinoian, Vanik
VITA ENAMIC generally allows superior restorations to be fabricated very quickly and inexpensively. The dental surgeon who was initially sceptical has since become an enthusiastic fan of the hybrid ceramic. With a conventional CAD/CAM glass ceramic such as lithium disilicate ceramic, it would not be possible to create partial non-prep veneers in this way. Due to their brittle characteristics, it would have been expected that such materials would fracture when milling thin restoration margins of this kind. Thanks to the intelligent combination of ceramic and polymer material, VITA ENAMIC is also the first material to demonstrate properties incredibly similar to those of natural dentition. It can be assumed that a VITA ENAMIC restoration will bond reliably with the tooth substance when adhesively cemented in the mouth, and that it will flexibly adapt thanks to its elasticity.
