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.

Mainly focused on selling to manufacturers and large laboratories, the latest system integrators include Core3d Centres, Apex Dental Milling, Clon3d, and Sagemax Bioceramics. Designed specifically for dental applications, exocad can be used with virtually any dental scanner, CAM, and fabrication system. "Our system is completely open and most of our customers customize the software to meet their unique strengths and business model," says Tillman Steinbrecher, CEO of exocad GmbH. The software features modules for crown and bridge, custom implant abutments and bars, as well as a virtual articulator, DICOM viewer, and TruSmile®. Two of the newest features include the bite splint module for designing night-guards and exoCAM simultaneous 5-axis CAM which currently works with the Roland DWX-50 mill. For details, call 855-396-4223, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.exocad.com. Roland DGA: Japan-based Roland has been selling its DWX-30 and DWX-50 Dental Milling Machines through a network of dealers. Its DWX-50 mills wax, zirconium and PMMA and is capable of five-axis simultaneous machining to achieve complex cuts. It features a five-station automatic tool changer with tool-length sensor, built-in dust collection tray for easy connection to any vacuum system and an innovative clamping system that securely holds a wide variety of materials. User Mark Jackson, Co-Owner and Vice President of Precision Ceramics Dental Laboratory in Montclair, CA, appreciates the machine for its low maintenance requirements, small footprint and efficient work area. He also praises the spindle collet that's sized to match other industrial milling equipment. "The common spindle collet size means we can cycle our burs through a variety of applications," says Jackson. "It's a nice feature that lets us maximize our efficiency." Roland's other dental mill, the DWX-30, is a four-axis machine that mills wax and zirconia and features three types of clamps—one for disks and two for blocks—making it easy to securely hold a wide variety of materials. Both Roland dental mills are open systems that work with scanners such as 3Shape, Dental Wings and I-Metric along with CAM software such as SUM 3D and Dentmill. The 5th axis on the DWX-50 and 4th axis on the DWX-30 are synchronous, allowing the machine to position the material in any axis simultaneously. This is a unique feature for machines in this price range. The DWX series is available through authorized Roland dealers. For details, call 800-542-2307 or visit www.rolanddga.com. White Peaks Dental Systems GmbH & Co. offers a variety of milling materials including Copran Zr-I and the high-translucency Copran Zr-I Ultra-T zirconium blanks and CopraTi-2, CopraTi-4 and CopraTi-5, grade-two, -four and -five titanium discs.
