Straumann CARES X-Stream: the complete implant-based prosthetic restoration in 1 step: 1 scan, 1 design session and 1 delivery
Zr02 customized abutment for bone level and tissue level implants
STRAUMANN extends its CARES zirconia portfolio to feature nine new CARES zerion LT shades, ranging from pure white...See more to dark yellow. The new shades can be used for final restorations including crowns, bridges, and the CARES® Variobase™ Abutment, a titanium-alloy bonding base with a ceramic coping. CARES laboratories benefit from expanded shade options to achieve the desired esthetic shade match for individual patient situations. Processing procedures for zerion do not change; all customers running software versions ranging from CARES 6.2 Linux to the latest CARES 8.0 can perform a complimentary software update to receive these new shade options.
The number of laboratories declined 12.5%, from approximately 12,000 to 10,500. The number of GPs and prosthodontists increased 17%, from 133,623 to 156,011. This means the ratio of dentists to labs increased from 11:1 to 15:1.
