Tetric CAD enhances Ivoclar Vivadent’s block portfolio

The successful Tetric composite family is growing: the new Tetric CAD composite blocks are now available. They round out Ivoclar Vivadent’s broad portfolio of blocks. The introduction of Tetric CAD enables dental practices to use materials from Ivoclar Vivadent for all of their digital restorations.

Tetric CAD is an esthetic composite block designed for the efficient production of indirect single-unit restorations. The new block is based on the proven Tetric technology and adds a new option to the range of direct restorative treatments covered by the Tetric Evo-Line. Due to the pronounced chameleon effect of the material, restorations made of Tetric CAD optically blend into the existing tooth structure to generate a natural esthetic integration.

Conveniently efficient and easy
The block is straightforward to use and efficient to process. It allows restorations to be milled and polished quickly and then seated using an adhesive technique. In this way, dentists quickly achieve an esthetic result. The new blocks are therefore especially suited for treatments in a single session.

Sensible addition to portfolio
Tetric CAD complements the Tetric family and completes the broad portfolio of CAD/CAM blocks provided by Ivoclar Vivadent. The portfolio now covers a wide spectrum of indications, ranging from temporary restorations made of PMMA materials to permanent restorations made of ceramic, zirconia or composite.

Designed for several systems
The new composite blocks are available in an MT and HT level of translucency, in five and four shades and in sizes I12 and C14. They can be processed with PrograMill (Ivoclar Vivadent), CEREC/inLab (Dentsply Sirona) or PlanMill (Planmeca) systems.

Tetric® and PrograMill® are registered trademarks of Ivoclar Vivadent AG.
