Long Island City, NY (August 26th, 2010) – Sirona Dental Systems (Nasdaq: SIRO) today announced the availability of the inLab Multilayer Design Option, which utilizes new VITA Rapid Layer Technology, during the CEREC® 25th Anniversary Celebration, a milestone event celebrating the 25-year anniversary of its CEREC CAD/CAM system.

VITA Rapid Layer Technology is a high-speed bridge production technique that utilizes innovative Sirona inLab V3.80 software, along with the Sirona inLab MC XL milling unit, to mill both the framework and corresponding full-contour overlay with a few mouse clicks. Natural-looking veneer structures can now be manufactured quickly and simply.

This fully computerized process guarantees efficient production of the substructure and overlay structure at once, producing fully anatomical bridges and crowns without the need for traditional waxing, porcelain layering or pressing.

Using Sirona inLab V3.80 software, the VITA Rapid Layer Technology process starts with the generation of the anatomical multi-unit bridge or crown on screen. The software automatically calculates the data for both the substructure and fully contoured overlay within a few seconds.

The framework is then milled from a VITA In-Ceram® YZ block, and the full-contour overlay is milled from VITABLOCS TriLuxe forte polychromatic ceramic, perfectly matching the VITA YZ substructure with an adhesive luting composite, creating a long-lasting bond between the substructure and veneering ceramic for an esthetic bridge restoration with long-term durability.
