Ivoclar Vivadent Reprises “Just Cure It!” Bluephase® Style Initiative

Company to donate $100 for each curing light sold to support breast cancer research


In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Ivoclar Vivadent will once again donate $100 for each pink Bluephase® Style LED Curing Light sold during the month of October to Susan G. Koman for breast cancer research. Ivoclar Vivadent employees have also supported the cause by participating in the Susan G. Koman Race for the Cure. This marks the sixth year for Ivoclar Vivadent’s “Just Cure It!” campaign, which was initiated in 2013.

“Each year we are inspired by how well-received this campaign is, and we remain committed to helping to fund the research that is so essential to finding a cure,” emphasized Robert A. Ganley, CEO of Ivoclar Vivadent. 

Withits Polywave™ technology, the Bluephase Style provides the broadest spectrum available to efficiently cure all dental materials, and its specially designed light probe easily accesses posterior teeth. The Bluephase® Style can be used cordless or corded, and its slim design and intuitive two-button operation is lightweight, very small, and ideal for any treatment. 

According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), an estimated 266,120 new cases of breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in the United States in 2018, which underscores the aggressive and deadly nature of the disease. While there is still much to learn about breast cancer, the NCI has reported a steady decline in breast cancer deaths since 1990, which is attributed to advancements in diagnosis and treatment. For more information, contact the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health at www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/types/breast, or by phone at 1-800-4-cancer.

VITA AKZENT Plus CHROMA STAINS help lab technicians and 

chairside-milling dentists reduce remakes with the wrong shade. 

YORBA LINDA, Calif., May 8, 2018 — Achieving accurate and reliable shade matches is the goal of every dental professional, yet accomplishing that is not always easy. Thirty percent of restorations have to be remade due to an inaccurate shade match. But now there’s a simple fix. Rather than remaking restorations with a poor color match, VITA has developed an innovative new product that reduces remakes by “rescuing” restorations with the wrong shade. The new VITA AKZENT Plus CHROMA STAINS can change a shade value up to two shades darker, helping lab technicians and chairside-milling dentists reduce remakes that have the wrong shade. The CTE-independent stains are universally accepted so they can be used on all common veneering ceramics, monolithic zirconium, silicate and feldspar ceramics. VITA AKZENT Plus CHROMA STAINS are easy to use and can correct chromasticity in just a few minutes, helping dental professionals save time and money. The stains are available in VITA classical and 3D-MASTER shades as a powder or paste

VITA is a leading provider of innovative dental products. The company pioneered the field of tooth shade determination with the development of the world-renowned VITA classical shade guide and its proprietary VITA SYSTEM 3D-MASTER®, the first and only system of its kind that covers the complete range of natural tooth shades.  From premium denture teeth and veneering materials, to digital shade measurement, furnaces and CAD/CAM restorations, VITA helps laboratory technicians and clinicians deliver high quality and esthetic results to patients quickly and efficiently.

YORBA LINDA, Calif.

VITA ZIRCONIA YZ HT SHADE LIQUIDS deliver a perfect shade match each and every time

YORBA LINDA, Calif. (Jan. 15, 2018) — VITA North America, which pioneered the field of tooth shade determination with the development of the world-renowned VITA classical shade guide and its proprietary VITA SYSTEM 3D-MASTER®, introduces the VITA ZIRCONIA YZ HT SHADE LIQUIDs. Designed specifically for convenient chairside solutions, VITA ZIRCONIA YZ HT SHADE LIQUIDs deliver a perfect shade match each and every time.   The new shade liquids eliminate the need to stock countless pre-shaded blocks that don’t match, while simultaneously streamlining chairside inventory. While the shade liquids were developed for use with VITA ZIRCONIA YZ material, they can also be used to infiltrate zirconia by other manufacturers, including pre-shaded zirconia blocks, which often don’t exactly match with their identified shade system.

Another convenient benefit: the ability to custom color zirconia restorations prior to sintering, while also creating fine shade tones quickly and easily. Colors can also be leveraged to adjust intensity and characterization. A complete range of shade options is available, including a combination of basic and additional shades that enable individual reproduction of the entire range of VITA shades. VITA ZIRCONIA YZ HT SHADE LIQUIDs are available in seven VITA classical A1-D4 shades and seven VITA SYSTEM 3D-MASTER shades, as well as supplementary shades for gingival, cervical and incisal areas.

VITA’s ZIRCONIA YZ HT SHADE LIQUIDs come in a convenient new starter kit, and contain all the essentials to deliver a perfect shade match and the highest level of esthetics for chairside and milling clinicians—all at an economical price. Plus, they’re easy to use! A few simple brush strokes following a “paint by numbers” technique is all it takes to deliver a finished restoration with natural esthetics.  

VITA is a leading provider of innovative dental products. From premium denture teeth and veneering materials, to digital shade measurement, furnaces and CAD/CAM restorations, VITA helps laboratory technicians and clinicians deliver high quality and esthetic results to patients quickly and efficiently.
