VOCO has announced a material partnership with Planmeca, integrating VOCO materials to the Planmeca system, designed to help service a growing segment of computer-aided design (CAD) / computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) users.
The company is releasing the fire-free nano-ceramic hybrid Grandio blocs PlanMill. VOCO reported that Grandio blocs are high quality with many other milling systems, and with its tooth-like properties, aesthetics, and time-saving attributes.
The nano-ceramic hybrid block minimises the need for firing, saving time and money while simplifying optional characterisation and intraoral repair. The high filler degree of 86% allows for wear resistance and long-term colour stability.
In addition, its toothlike elasticity and thermal expansion behaviour enhance marginal integrity compared to ceramic or zirconia. The blocs are formulated to offer precision-milled, thin, tapered edges as low as 0.8mm for crowns, without concern for chipping or breakage.
Grandio blocs PlanMill is indicated for crowns, inlays, onlays, veneers, and implant-supported crowns. Planmeca’s latest software update allows PlanMill users to select the ideal milling strategy for Grandio blocs PlanMill.
