Celtra Duo’s threefold functional zirconia-reinforced lithium silicate microstructure reportedly offers a balance of opalescence, fluorescence and translucency, plus reduced crystal size that increases flexural strength.

Celtra Duo’s threefold functional zirconia-reinforced lithium silicate microstructure reportedly offers a balance of opalescence, fluorescence and translucency, plus reduced crystal size that increases flexural strength.

The new material’s increased glass content is said to visibly increase translucency and facilitate opalescence and fluorescence, while 10% dissolved zirconia strengthens the glass matrix without clouding. 

Additionally, the glass ceramic crystals’ ultrafine microstructure allows for fast, simple processing of the zirconia-reinforced lithium silicate.  Celtra Duo uses the same furnaces and CAM units as conventional C and B porcelain, which reportedly allows labs to expand services without any additional investment.  Post-mill, single-unit crowns and inlay and outlay restorations are correctly shaded, eliminating additional crystallization steps required with other materials.

Restorations may be customized with Celtra Universal Stain & Glaze System, which is also compatible with zirconia and lithium systems, as well as most porcelain systems.
