NEW PRODUCT LAUNCH: 3M Raises the Bar in Same-Day Dentistry
ST. PAUL‚ Minn. – (Feb. 4, 2019) – Chairside CAD/CAM dentistry has promised convenience since its inception, including the advent of the single-visit crown; however, with convenience can come compromise. While software and equipment technology has advanced continuously, materials have struggled to keep pace. A strong material might appear lifeless in the mouth, while a more esthetic material may crack or fracture. Recognizing the need for a well-balanced alternative that maximizes new high-speed sintering technology, 3M is introducing 3M™ Chairside Zirconia – a new CAD/CAM zirconia block optimized for the fast-sintering CEREC® SpeedFire Furnace1. The new block offers an optimal blend of high strength and esthetics to go along with a fast sintering time of approximately 20 minutes2,3 for a thin-walled crown.
