  • May 2009: ADA Releases Results of Lead Study

    When the controversy over the possibility of lead in PFM restorations arose in 2008, the ADA conducted an independent study to determine the degree to which lead may be present in crowns. In 2009, it released the results of this study, which found only trace amounts of the naturally occurring element in 44 different porcelain powders and 102 finished porcelain-metal crowns produced by domestic and foreign dental laboratories. The results ranged from below detectable to 113 parts per million (ppm) in the 44 porcelain powders, and an average of 46ppm in the crowns.

  • September 1985: The 80s' Most Significant Technological Advances

    In our first-ever State of the Industry survey, LMT asked readers to indicate the most significant technological advances that occurred between 1980 and 1985. Here's what they said:

    • All ceramic crowns (Dicor and Cerestore)
    • Laminate veneers/facings
    • Computerized/automated porcelain furnaces, burnout machines and casting machines
    • Light-cured resins
    • Semi-precious and non-precious alloys

    Looking at this list in hindsight, which of these five advances would you say had the most dramatic, lasting effect on your work?

  • Patrick Coon, CDT/TE · Technical Consultant at Ivoclar Vivadent, Inc.

    Longer span frameworks and those with a significant curve to them should have a support structure that would be left in place during sintering. This will help to stabilize them. You would then remove the support after sintering with a diamond disk and water. I would then do a regeneration firing before applying porcelain.

    Jimmy Stegall CAD/CAM Technicians

    Anyone have any advice on zirconia bridge frameworks "warping"? Hardly ever happens with frameworks with no curve, but seems to be more frequent with 4 unit and larger frames that curve (anterior). Individual units fit terrific internally and marginally, but 2-3 out of 10 times the frames will rock slightly....

  • Interesting facts to think about. 30 years ago, all the porcelain manufactures began to think about how to make porcelain powders which through a complicated and sophisticated build up technique would make it possible for the dental technician to create natural looking teeth. Twenty years later they began leaving out Opacious Dentin, then they began to manufacture a two powder build up, and today we are approached with the One powder "Do it all" porcelain. (Just add stains!). Personally I see a slow curve of downgrading the technical skills of the educated ceramist. It is truly a shame that we...See more — tagged Porcelain

  • To all of you my fellow partners in the Dental field, is a reality that the speed we are running with the technology is no joke, but, getting an specialty in CAD and not necessarily in CAM for some, will not make too much sense when our new technicians are just knowledgeable with a joystick (with all my respects) and have no fundamentals in Dental Technology. How many times have you asked a CAD technician if he/she is taking into consideration a curve of spee/ or perhaps if a crown lengthening if recommended?
    Don’t get me wrong, I love CAD and I love my field, but the losing art is not about...See more

    When Elephant products (Carrara porcelain) folded three month ago, I was very upset. All import of the porcelain to USA was cancelled. It had taken me quite a number of years to build up my entire porcelain production around their product. I have now switched to Ivoclar Inline and POM for all my pfm and really like the product. I still grieve the loss of the very personal service I got from European Dental Import, but this porcelain turns out to be really nice. I recommend it :0)
