KATANA ZIRCONIA BLOCK

COLOR GRADIENT. 763 MPa. FOR CEREC.

18-minute Sintering with SpeedFire

KATANA™ Zirconia Block, the innovative multi layered zirconia block, can be used with Dentsply Sirona’s CEREC system. A new 18-minute sintering program has been developed and is now ready to install. The new technology makes it possible to fabricate a full zirconia single unit restoration in approx. 35 minutes.

MULTI-LAYERED TECHNOLOGY

The Multi-layered KATANA™ Zirconia Block consists of four layers of zirconia in gradated shades. This product allows the chair side fabrication of natural-tooth-colored restorations – eliminating time-consuming and difficult challenge in staining a restoration.

NEW SOLUTION FOR CHAIR SIDE

Dentists in the clinical setting often ask themselves to decide which is more important, the mechanical or the esthetic qualities of restorations. With its superb mechanical properties and esthetic qualities that mimic natural teeth, KATANA™ Zirconia Block resolves this dilemma. It provides new solutions to a variety of clinical problems that cannot be addressed by lithium silicate glass (LS glass) or conventional zirconia.

MINIMIZING WALL THICKNESS

As an all-ceramic option, zirconia has excellent mechanical properties. KATANA™ Zirconia Block, a highly translucent form of zirconia, has better mechanical properties than LS glass. This means that it is possibly by using KATANA™ Zirconia Block to design a thinner restoration than those that can be fabricated using LS glass. This results in both great mechanical properties and beautiful esthetics, with no compromise!

PANAVIA™ CEMENTATION FAMILY

Designed for ease of use with Zirconia

Zirconia is a non-silica-based ceramic which will not respond to a traditional pretreatment method such as, hydrofluoric acid-etching of the internal surface. Micro-mechanical retention achieved through sandblasting and chemical bonding through adhesion (ex. MDP) are key factors for successful zirconia bonding.

PANAVIA™ V5 and PANAVIA™ SA Cement Universal, which both include the MDP adhesive monomer, have high bond strength and durability to zirconia.
