Delcam demonstrated its latest software release, DentMILL 2014, that offers enhanced milling precision, especially important for abutment interfaces. The software imports vector information that defines...See more the alignment of the interfaces and overlays predefined milling templates for the interfaces which is more accurate than .stl geometry, according to the company. Another improvement to the system is the intelligent stock-management system, which allows the user to select only the sizes of material block currently in stock and suitable for the specified milling machine and fixture. After milling, partially used blocks can be added back into the stock-management system for future use.

DENTAL TEAM: Scott Atkin, Creative Dental Laboratory and Dr. Michael Foley, both in Scottsdale, AZ RESTORATIVE PROBLEM: A 79-year-old male patient with an existing PFM full mouth rehab needed a classic...See more A3 shade replacement bridge for teeth #11 through #15. TREATMENT PLAN: A five-unit Crystal Diamond full contour bridge was prescribed. Crystal Diamond was chosen for its excellent translucency and strength, ideal for highly esthetic anterior and posterior metal-free restorations. FABRICATION PROCESS: The case was scanned using a 3Shape D710 scanner and milled using Delcam software on a DentMill 4 milling machine from Digital Dental Lab. After milling, Atkin infiltrated the non-colored zirconia with a combination of Tanaka Zircolor and Zirkonzahn's Color Liquids Prettau® Aquarell shading liquids using green micro-brushes to ensure uniform application of the shading liquids. The technique, based on the instructional Shading Techniques DVD provided by Dental Laboratory Milling Supplies, allows for gradient transitional shading and high translucency. The sintering process must take into account the type of zirconia used and the number of restorations sintered at one time. Crystal Diamond is a high-heat zirconia, and generally the larger the mass and weight--like this five-unit bridge--the longer the heat-soak temperature. The accuracy and programmability of a sintering oven is key to achieving esthetic results for full contour zirconia; the laboratory used the high-temp Sintermax TI700 from Sintering Ovens.com and a custom ramp and heat-soak program specifically for long-span, full contour bridges. Zirkonzahn Zirconia Stains and Glaze were used post-sintering to endow natural tooth characteristics. Except for using different temperatures, the staining and glazing method was the same as those used with other ceramic restorations. Because of the underlying shades and gradients created using pre-sintering shading liquids, very little staining was needed on the final restoration. The patient and the doctor were pleased with the results and the fact that the color of the solid zirconia bridge matches the adjacent PFM restorations.

In Chicago, Delcam demonstrated its latest DentMILL software for milling implant restorations. Software enhancements include: Improved integration with the DentCAD design software, including a new interface...See more that features bolder and clearer icons and a reduced number of toolbars to allow maximum screen space. Improved nesting allows more efficient use of materials. For instance, restorations are oriented in the optimum alignment so the most cost-effective part of the block can be used. The milling templates have been extended to a wider range of materials, including titanium, cobalt-chrome and glass ceramics. New strategies offer smoother machining to give the best possible surface finish. Faster calculation times thanks to new background-processing capabilities. For instance, toolpath calculations can be started on the first items added to the block while the remaining restorations are still being positioned. Closer integration between DentMILL and Delcam's OrderManager workflow management software so the system is automatically updated with manufacturing data as it's generated.
