Carestream Dental’s CS 3000 Milling Machine Earns Additional Certification from VITA for Use with VITA ENAMIC Ceramic

ATLANTA—Carestream Dental and VITA have once again partnered to support their respective restoration offerings. Carestream Dental’s CS 3000 milling machine has earned certification from VITA to work with the company’s VITA ENAMIC® hybrid dental ceramic, which combines the benefits of dental ceramics with those of composite materials.
Carestream Dental’s CS 3000 milling machine was officially launched as part of the CS Solutions CAD/CAM restoration portfolio. The milling machine features a four-axis brushless motor that produces high-quality restorations with ±25 µm accuracy. The unit’s compact design and quiet, vibration-free milling allow practitioners to use the machine anywhere, even chairside.
Additionally, the CS 3000’s sturdy construction provides high torsion-resistance with minimum deviation for precise milling, even after years of use. The average milling time for a crown with the CS 3000 is less than 15 minutes, allowing practitioners to mill aesthetic, anatomically accurate restorations in a single appointment. 
“CS Solutions and VITA are the perfect match, and we welcome them as an industry-leading partner who can offer versatile materials to meet doctors’ preferences,” Edward Shellard, D.M.D., chief marketing officer, director of business development, Carestream Dental, said. “The CS Solutions portfolio is all about providing tools to practitioners to make their restoration workflow more efficient, and VITA ENAMIC gives them another option when it comes to customizing a crown for their patient.”
“The expansion of the material selection with VITA ENAMIC allows CS 3000 practitioners to choose the perfect material for the individual needs of their patients,” Patrick Bayer, cooperation manager, VITA, said. “We’re proud to be Carestream Dental’s partner as they continue to broaden their offerings in the CAD/CAM product category. Together, the CS 3000 and the VITA CAD/CAM materials provide practices with an efficient solution concept to create high quality restorations.”
VITA ENAMIC is the first hybrid dental ceramic with a dual-network structure for superior absorption of masticatory forces. The innovative network makes VITA ENAMIC both very strong and highly elastic. This hybrid ceramic is suitable for posterior crowns and facilitates thinner walls for minimally-invasive restorations. This tooth-colored hybrid material features properties that are almost identical to those of natural teeth and produces a natural play of colors thanks to its excellent light conductivity.
The certification marks the ongoing relationship between Carestream Dental and VITA, as the CS 3000 also received approval to work with the company’s VITABLOCS® Mark II restorative, a fine-structure feldspar ceramic material, in October 2013.
