SCH‹TZ DENTAL GROUP's TiZian porcelain can be used on zirconium or titanium substructures and is free of feldspar...See more for high transparency and esthetics, even after multiple firings. The combination of particle sizes between .3 and 60 microns results in extremely low firing shrinkage. The surface texture is homogenous and compact even after the first bake, and the resulting hardness is similar to that of natural dentition. Both simple ceramic restorations and high-end veneers can be layered easily. TiZian is highly polishable, even intraorally; has high bonding strength; and is available in kits or individually in 10- and 50-g bottles.

The isostatically pressed zirconia blocks come in 16- and 20-mm depths in six different sizes. The nesting software allows you to place up to 30 units on one block to maximize productivity and reduce costs. You can also mill on unused portions of zirconium and acrylic blocks for increased savings. There are no bar codes, dongle fees or maintenance/software contracts required. The TiZian software includes a virtual articulator that works with all systems and an abutment designer with a library of 11 implant systems to which you can add.
The new TiZian Smart Scan from SCHUTZ scans up to 72% faster and features a large field of view (80x60x80mm). High-precision...See more scans for complex works such as large-span restorations and implant-supported bars can be created with short scan times: scan a single die in 59 seconds or a full jaw in 92 seconds. The TiZian Smart Scan has an accuracy of less than 10 microns and the large-capacity scanning bay allows you to scan fully articulated models with most articulation systems. The open .stl file format means you can work with any open milling system including the Schutz TiZian Eco 4-axis dry milling unit and the TiZian Cut 5 wet/dry 5-axis milling unit. The compact system fits easily on any workspace and comes with the newest version of Schutz Exocad, a 64-bit workstation and 22" monitor.
