FRIDAY 22nd NOVEMBER – 13.00-14.30

SPAKER: Dott. Marco Valenti; Odt. Angelo Canale


The use of zirconia by clinicians worldwide has increased lot in the last years.
The success of this material is linked both to the possibility of using it in monolithic and layered and to the development of zirconia with optical properties that are close to those of glass ceramics, but with higher wear resistance. Kuraray Noritake was the first company to produce multilayered zirconia discs that allow to achieve excellent results without the need of color infiltration before sintering. The three series of KATANA zirconia (UTML, STML and HTML), used in accordance with their characteristics, offer unquestionable benefits.

The speakers will talk about a restorative approach that considers the biomechanical and aesthetics characteristics of the materials, focusing on the needs of the patients. During the speech, the different types of zirconia, ceramics, shades and the Dentist-Lab digital flow will be analyzed from intra oral scan to cementation. The philosophy of the speakers presumes that every treatment should have a rational cost-benefit ratio especially regarding the quality of the work for the patient.
