GRADIA

Indirect Restoration System

gradia

GRADIA is an indirect restoration system for crown and bridge, inlays, onlays and veneers. This product is an advanced ‘MFR composite’. Its internal structure consists of reinforced bonds between an organic/inorganic filler and a lightly-filled matrix resin which together impart a very high mechanical strength while being ‘gentle’ on opposing teeth. This makes GRADIA particularly suitable for posterior high-wear, high-pressure restorations that are prone to chipping or cracking when made with porcelain. The composite is also simple to handle, biocompatible, very technique tolerant and can be easily polished to a beautiful natural gloss.

When you want to use a composite restorative and the quality of your work demands using only the best, there is no finer system than GRADIA. Years of experience have shown that with GRADIA you can create beautiful, life-like restorations without the ‘paleness’ of traditional composites as well as restorations with all the toughness of natural teeth. Another benefit with GRADIA is that GRADIA® gum shades, our gingiva build-up composite, is an integral part of the GRADIA system. Used separately, each product gives superb results. But if a patient requires teeth and gum restorations where their ‘white’ and ‘red’ esthetics need to be finely balanced, then the complete system is ideal. The shades and accessories of both products are fully harmonized so you can precisely color match your restorations to the patient and to each other, regardless of age or ethnicity.

GC Initial

Complete Ceramic System

gc initial

GC Initial can create metal-ceramic restorations all the way to full-ceramic. This product consists of six ceramics in one integrated product line with one color system. No longer does the ceramist have to spend valuable time learning to use a myriad of different ceramics from an array of manufacturers to create the variety of restorations which may be needed to complete a case. Each GC Initial ceramic is adapted to meet the needs of its particular fabrication process and framework, such as its coefficient of thermal expansion (or CTE). Stress cracks and fractures are therefore avoided, which assures strong bonding, adhesion and retention. With GC Initial, you need to master only one layering technique and one shade system. The Initial ceramic system allows you to use the identical processing method for all components using a single shade system. You don’t have to re-adjust to other unaccustomed layering techniques or layering systems. GC Initial gives you more essential time to be creative. It doesn’t matter if you are working with full ceramic, metal-based, titanium or zirconium oxide or aluminum oxide frameworks; this system has its own components when low-fusing technology or the ceramic pressing techniques are used. GC Initial is also ideally suited for use with the proven sintering technique. GC Initial MC is used for the first coating on investment dies. Your work can then be completed easily and efficiently with the “low-fusing” component, GC Initial LF.
