Experts provide insider information
The new ceramic products from Ivoclar Vivadent are now in use in most parts of the world. And they are the talk of the industry. A small, select group of experts met in Vienna to discuss the products, and it looks like the ceramics already have quite a following!
Stimulating exchange in Vienna
Sixteen opinion leaders from ten different countries met before the beginning of the “Competence in Esthetics” symposium hosted by Ivoclar Vivadent. The company invited them to the meeting in the Austrian capital with the aim of allowing users of the ceramic materials to share their initial experiences with the products, which were introduced last October. In return, they were given exclusive insights into the world of research and development of Ivoclar Vivadent. They were also treated to an attractive social program. The participants took a tour of the city of Vienna on a historic tramway and they spent a convivial evening at the famous Hotel Sacher. In addition, they were introduced to the recently inaugurated Ivoclar Vivadent training centre, which was transformed into a world of ceramics (masters) for one and a half days.
Some of the comments about the new ceramics:
Michele Temperani (Italy): “The new metal-ceramic IPS Style is great. We are pleased to have a material at our disposal that provides more luminosity without looking opaque”.
Dominique Vinci (Switzerland): “IPS Ivocolor is fast. It’s easy to glaze with just one layer: simply fantastic. IPS Ivocolor is a truly innovative product for me. It has changed the way I work. Thank you for this new product!”
Oliver Morhofer (Germany): “IPS Style has excellent brightness, perfect fluorescence and fantastic surface finish. In combination with the new IPS Ivocolor staining and glazing materials it offers a great solution for all laboratories.”
Lee Culp (USA): “One of the incredible things that just happened this year is IPS Style. We are mainly an all-ceramic laboratory but there are certain cases that we rely on metal-ceramics for. In those cases we felt IPS Style to be the perfect ceramic. First of all because of its ease of use and low shrinkage, which is very important to us in trying to build our ceramics accurately.”
Didier Crescenzo (France): “I love the new IPS Style Ceram materials with their attractive chroma and brightness and low shrinkage. The light intensity of the new IPS e.max Ceram Power Dentin materials is really exceptional. I use these materials a lot.
Hélène Crescenzo (France): “We are very happy to have introduced IPS Style Ceram in our laboratory. The new IPS Ivocolor stains for metal-ceramics provide materials similar to those of IPS e.max Ceram, which are already available for lithium disilicate. This is a great advantage. The number of materials needed in the dental lab is reduced quite considerably with the two systems.”
Velimir Zujic (Croatia): “IPS Style allows me to express my very own personal style. It’s like heaven on earth for me!”
Florin Stoboran (Romania): “Whenever I work with IPS e.max Ceram Power Dentin materials I feel the power in me.”
