Katana has become my favored zirconia brand when the clinical circumstances allow adequate occlusal reduction. The sintering time in the Dentsply Sirona SpeedFire furnace is in the 18-minute range. This is an incredible fact! A significant advantage of a multi zirconia application is the beautiful gradient is already in the pre-milled block. All we do is choose the shade (1-2 shades darker than target shade}, mill, and polish after sintering. This video will demonstrate the practical finishing steps for Katana STML using the Klim Institute Meisinger Zirconia Lab Kit JK04

Chairside zirconia restoration...getting better every month. ZirCAD LT, multi infiltration effect, and polished. Chairside zirconia provides a complete portfolio for restoring posterior teeth.

I do appreciate the all-zirconia restorations and provide quite a number of them as a treatment option in my clinical theater.  The primary benefit of the all zirconia restoration for me is the conservative crown prep and biomechanical “muscle” material behavior.  In the next year, we will find an abundance of new brands and translucency options being introduced to the market.  We will need to decipher recommended prep style and reductionRead more

The inverted sintered cone diamond on the Meisinger JK03 Klim Institute Lab kit is the most versatile shaping diamond. It works well on posterior occlusal surface refinements and micro texturing anterior labial surfaces.
