Just in case you are still researching this topic, I thougt it wouldn't hurt to add input.
We...See more do our own in-house milling. It's part of the process to "test" every brand that gets offered to us. You'll always be better off without the "non-shaded/blank" zirconia (irregardless of the brand), mainly because the staining process and/or dipping process can get a bit tedious, and did you know that chemicals in the dipping liquid can actually damage your furnace? Mainly we use NexZir from Sagemax because of the feasibilty to use, and shade variation availability. For those restorations that require ideal esthetics/translucency and have a dark stump, we recommend this brand to make a more opcaious core and eliminate the posibilty of shade distortion - a discrepancy that tends to occur with e.max
Katana is a great product, but buying at a higher cost also means we have to sell at a higher cost. As you probably know, today's dental market it's close to a dog eat dog wolrd (sad but true). Also, we always do cut-back for anterior cases, so what's the point? when NexZir resolves the same issue (at a lower cost).
Zirlux tends to be monochromatic and often diffictult to accomplinsh great esthetic and translucent results.
We've tried a few others, what we can say is beware of the super cheap pricing, if the product is too cheap it's likely an inferior material and not worth the headache of a re-make later on.
If you contiune to outsource, it is imperative to get from the milling center (wouldn't hurt to do your own research also) MSDS and tech info... It's only a matter of time before your own dentist clients will need this info as well.
13% of respondents to LMT's 2013 Dentist Survey plan to retire within the next five years. As baby-boomer clients begin to reach retirement age, lab owners need to target younger dentists to ensure a consistent workflow and a dynamic and diverse customer base.
