In a great move that benefits the dental lab industry, dentists and patients,VITA North America recently signed on to join the IdentAlloy/IdentCeram Council and will begin providing certificates confirming the contents of the materials they use from VITA North America.
These certificates give the labs verification that the VITA North America materials they work with contain only the substances they expect, and this is information that can be passed along to the dentist to confirm that restorations made with VITA North America materials matches up to the prescription. Clinicians can also use the certificates to educate patients and confirm that they are providing the highest quality of care available.
VITA North America joins a long list of leading material manufacturers working with the Council and all of them deserve to be recognized as leaders pushing the industry toward greater reliability and accountability in the materials used to fabricate dental restorations.
