Veneering Materials Overview

The VITA VM family of porcelains is designed to allow the production of highly esthetic restorations in a very short amount of time. The VM system features two easy buildup techniques regardless of the substructure (PFM or all-ceramic). Plus, VM porcelains are part of the VITA system of restorative solutions and blend perfectly with all VITA 3D-Master and VITA Classical shaded materials. This means that no matter what the need, from single anteriors to challenging combination cases, you are assured a comprehensive system of VITA materials that feature the superior shade match, esthetics and reliability you have come to expect.

Show here are the two VM buildup techniques – the “basic layering” 2-powder and the added depth of the “buildup layering” 3-powder technique:

VITA VM7 porcelain is perfect for aluminous all-ceramic substructures VITA VM®7For all-ceramic substructure materials in the CTE range of approximate 7.2-7.9 (such as VITA In-Ceram Alumina, Spinell, Zirconia, and VITA In-Ceram AL )
VITA VM 9 is perfect for veneering YZ all-ceramic substructures VITA VM®9For all-ceramic substructure materials in the CTE range of approximate 10.5 (such as VITA In-Ceram YZ-Cubes) and for individualizing VITABLOCS Mark II
VM11_bottle_bd VITA VM®11VITA VM 11 is a low-melting fine-structure feldspar ceramic in the CTE range of 11,2 – 11,6 that has been developed especially for individualizing crown substructures made of zirconia reinforced lithium silicate ceramic (ZLS).
VITA VM13 is perfect for veneering PFMs VITA VM®13For veneering metal substructures in the conventional CTE range of approximate 13.8-15.2
