Amann Girrbach has relaunched an optimised portfolio of acrylate blanks, providing improved material properties and shade synchronised with Ceramill Zolid zirconia.
With the relaunch, Amann Girrbach has structured its PMMA material range more clearly and increases the maximum wearing time to three years. At the same time, laboratories will in part benefit from lower costs. The innovations in the portfolio include materials for temporary crowns and bridges, for splints as well as for casting and pressing.
Ceramill A-Temp ML replaces Ceramill Temp ML as a material for long-term temporary restorations and will in future be available in monochrome as well as a multilayer blank in the most common A-D shades according to the VITA shade guide. Due to the unique shade synchronisation with the materials of the Zolid zirconia portfolio, A-Temp forms the perfect basis for the fabrication of highly aesthetic crowns and bridges. In addition, the material will also be available in block form and this opens up new possibilities for intelligent stock-keeping with both Amann Girrbach and universal mandrels.
Under the name A-Splint, Amann Girrbach introduces new PMMA blanks for the fabrication of CAD/CAM-manufactured splints with up to three years retention time in the patient's mouth, replacing Ceramill Splintec Standard. In the area of casting and pressing, A-Cast succeeds the previous Ceramill PMMA blanks. The long-established products Ceramill Temp and Ceramill Splintec from Merz Dental will continue to be part of the portfolio.
In addition to longer wearing time and lower costs, there is yet another advantage: Amann Girrbach introduces standardised sizes and new intermediate sizes in the course of the relaunch. Thus, all blanks are available in heights of 14, 16 and 20 mm (A-Cast only 14 and 20 mm). As a result, the right blanks can be found for every size of restoration.
