Zolid Gen-X – Esthetic all-rounder
Zolid Gen-X puts an end to the time-consuming search for the right blank for the popular res- toration, quite simply because the latest blanks of the Zolid DNA generation are true all-rounders!
Zolid Gen-X combines all the advantages of the Zolid HT+ product group: the excellent esthetic properties and out- standing mechanical values allow exceeding any indication limitations.
In addition, Gen-X possesses a natural color gradient that takes the blank to a new level in terms of efficiency and esthetics.
Perfect match 16 Vita shades
Due to the natural esthetics and the flexural strength of over 1000 MPa, almost all types of indications can be easily realized.
The fluent shade and translucency gradient perfectly imitates nature. Added to this is the shade certainty provided by the perfectly matched 16 Vita shades.
Fun right from the start
Through the harmonious integration into the “Esthetic Management” and the detailed description of the manufacturing process, Zolid GEN-X promises fun from the first second on.
The best choice
Due to its excellent properties, Zolid GEN-X can be used for any restorations. This reduces the complexity of selecting the right blank based on size and position.
Same, same but different!
Zolid GEN-X contains all advantages of Zolid HT+ in addition to the new features. With more than 2.5 million units manufactured since its introduction, this material class has already become well established.
To compensate for volume shrinkage during the sintering process, Ceramill restorations made of zirconium oxide and Sintron are always fabricated with a certain allowance. This is defined by entering the so-called magnification factor in the CAM software.
There are various CAM software systems on the market, all of which require different values to be entered. To meet the various requirements, the Ceramill blanks are marked with the following three specifications for the magnification factor:
Sintering of Zolid restoration
Sintering of zirconium oxide is one of the most important process steps in the fabrication of dental restorations.
The porous white body condenses under the influence of high temperatures and the blank achieves its final mechanical (strength) and optical (translucency) properties. The standardized as well as material friendly sintering temperature of 1450 °C ensures economical processes. This allows ZI, Zolid, Zolid HT+ or Zolid FX to be sintered together in a single furnace run.
Optimum results are achieved with the Ceramill Therm and Therm S high-temperature furnaces from Amann Girrbach. These are fully matched to the Zolid portfolio and thus achieve the best possible material properties.
