Beauty. Strength. Versatility.
VITA PM9 is VITA’s latest restorative material in the VM line of small particle, 3D-Master shaded porcelain systems with excellent wear rates. The difference between PM9 and the other VM porcelains is that PM9 is a stand-alone or press-to-zirconia porcelain. This makes PM9 an extremely versatile all-ceramic system that enables technicians to consistently produce beautiful, high-strength restorations of all types.
Pressable VITA PM 9 is based on the proven fine-structure ceramic VITAVM®9 and is used for pressing to yttrium-stabilized ZrO2 frameworks in the CTE range of 10.4 – 10.6 x 10-6 such as VITA In-Ceram YZ and other zirconium oxide substructure materials for natural looking high-strength anterior and posterior crowns and bridges.
VITA PM 9 may also be pressed without the support of a zirconium substructure for the fabrication of single or multi-surface inlays, onlays, partial crowns, veneers and anterior crowns using the staining/glazing or layering technique. Restorations made from PM9 can be easily characterized using the layering technique with the entire range of VM9 ceramic materials or individualized (using the staining technique) with VITA Akzent or VITA Shading Paste stains. Each of the twenty shaded pellets in the system is available in two levels of translucency and can be stained/glazed, or modified using the powders in the VITAVM®9 porcelain system.
PM9 2 gram pellets are available in 10 VITA 3D-Master shades, each with two different levels of translucency. Here is the relative translucency of the translucent pellets:
And here is the relative translucency of the Opaque pellets:
The shade of the Opaque pellet of VITA PM9 has been matched with YZ Coloring Liquid. The opaque variation is primarily suitable for the press-to technique and the translucent variation is suitable for the staining and layering technique for unsupported pressing.
