Zirkon Workflow Set
Five steps to the finished restoration
The zirconia workflow set covers everything, from working on pre-sintered zirconia to high-shine polishing, in one set.
Out of a close cooperation with dental technicians extremely specialized on milling services resulted this state-of-the art set including brand-new and unique developments such as the 2-in-1 polisher for pre-sintered zirconia and the all-ceramic KERA cutters.
The set stands out with a perfect selection to be used in five steps:
Step 1: Processing the pre-sintered zirconia prior to final sintering using the all-ceramic KERA cutters for separating, cleaning and structuring. And, for coarse and fine polishing using the newly developed 2-in-1 polisher (Fig. 9800 055) with a combined fine (white) and medium (grey) working part.
Step 2: Initial grinding over large areas of the sintered restoration, e.g. thinning crown margins and correcting the shape with the pink abrasive tools (interspersed with diamonds). Due to the innovative synthetic bond these abrasives can be used without water cooling, thus preventing disruptive spray formation.
Step 3: ZIRAMANT diamond instruments, with their special mix of grit sizes (green/black: coarse grit & red/red: fine grit) can be used to make delicate fine corrections on the sintered zirconia.
Step 4: Two-step polishing of the sintered restoration using zirconia polishers, interspersed with high amount of diamonds. The final result is equivalent to glaze firing and can thus replace an additional firing step.
Step 5: Using the diamond polishing paste, the restoration can then be given a glossy finish.
The set features a practical, application-based selection of instruments. Another advantage is that it is easy to tell apart the instruments for processing pre-sintered zirconia blanks (white, all-ceramic instruments and 2-in-1 polishers) and those for processing the sintered restoration (all other instruments).
