I use more and more resin crowns and charge in place of a SSC’s with signed disclosures rthey are semi-permanent with no warranty. I have a case with a full mouth of Tetric CADs on a 15 y/o girl with enamel hypoplasia (Deceased father and very limited funds. Blocks were donated by a combination of dealer and manufacturer and I did the labor for free). Saw her last week on recall and it’s been 7 months. They looked surprisingly good bc her hygiene is average to fair at best. No failures so far that I know of.
So my point is I love resin blocks for less-fortunate patients. What advantages would Crios have over the other resin blocs for the way I’d use them?


​In the US you can exclude warranty by signing a disclosure? 😀


Lol. It’s probably worth the paper it’s printed on but I just get it in writing that “The restoration is not the first choice in my professional opinion but is indicated by the manufacturer for its use, so it is being placed as another option” or something like that. I’m just wondering if Crios has any better characteristics than the other resins. I haven’t had any failures in the extremely short time I’ve used them, but I like what I see so far. I’ll order a pack of Crios and try them. I have 2 Z100 crowns on #2and 15 I placed as temps from my red cam...12 years ago!
