CAD/CAM technology offers the advantage of providing conservative dentistry with ceramic blocks that require less removal of natural tooth structure.

Maximum strength and color transformation for e.max lithium disilicate ceramic material takes only minutes with glazing and crystallization in our Programat furnace.
