Both in the posterior and anterior regions.


For monolithic or minimal buccally reduced dental frameworks made of zirconium dioxide or lithium disilicate. One system allows labs to realize all its Zr and LDS ceramic restorations, micro-layering and painting techniques, and anterior or posterior restorations.


The Initial IQ ONE SQIN is a paintable color-and-form ceramic system that offers esthetic restorations comparable to conventionally layered restorations without the demand of a lab’s time. Based on the GC Initial “IQ philosophy,” the system consists of different ceramic materials adapted to be used together, assuring efficient and esthetically convincing finalization of monolithic and buccally reduced restorations. The system comprises Lustre Pastes ONE, Spectrum Stains, and SQIN.

*The How

The Initial IQ ONE SQIN gives lab technicians the choice of micro-layering or painting techniques. The GC Initial IQ Lustre Pastes ONE are used as a color and individualization layer, assuring a perfect connection firing before application of the SQIN powders. In the micro-layering technique, SQIN is easily applied in a layer thickness of 0.1 to 0.6 mm over the painted and fired Lustre Pastes ONE surface. The refined mixture of feldspar-based glasses creates a lifelike 3D effect, resulting in color depth and lifelike translucency. In the painting technique, the Lustre Pastes feldspar-based 3D paint-on ceramic adds color depth and lifelike translucency with a very natural glaze to monolithic restorations.
