Vintage art
Vintage Art® universal paste porcelain stains with an ultra-fine particle structure, ideal for all internal and external stain techniques to replicate variations found in vital teeth.

Vintage Art is a ready-to-use, logically structured color concept. With superb coverage characteristics, Vintage Art makes it easy to adjust any porcelain toward the correct shade.

Vintage Art has excellent handling and application properties and reproduces natural dentin fluorescence. With an unlimited C.T.E. range, Vintage Art can be applied directly to any substructure to obtain three-dimensional effects.

Ideal for use with all porcelain systems and allowing versatile application, Vintage Art simple shade adaptation can be used with metal porcelain, alumina porcelain, zirconia porcelain and CAD/CAM ceramic blocks.

Vintage Art, which can be individually mixed and maintains stable color even after repeated firing cycles, is ideal for the specific application of prominent and fine color accents in the laboratory and in the dental practice.
