VITA SUPRINITY: a new generation of glass ceramic

New Products CEREC

VITA Zahnfabrik has developed a new generation zirconia-reinforced lithium silicate glass ceramic material, or simply ZLS, in collaboration with Degudent GmbH and the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC.


The new glass ceramic is marketed by VITA Zahnfabrik under the name of VITA SUPRINITY. With a zirconium dioxide content around ten times that of traditional CAD/CAM glass ceramic in combination with a particularly fine-grained and homogeneous structure, ZLS ensures excellent mechanical properties. The high strength and reliability of the new material gives it a wide range of applications.

VITA SUPRINITY is distinguished by its outstanding mechanical strength and is also highly user-friendly. The new glass ceramic allows easy manual reworking and excellent polishing and can also be crystallized without auxiliary firing paste.

Furthermore, its optimum edge stability ensures improved precision. The end results are aesthetically impressive with their natural translucency, fluorescence and opalescence. With a wide range of indications including anterior and posterior crowns, supra-constructions on implants as well as veneers, inlays and onlays, the new generation of glass ceramic is highly versatile. The material is available in the geometries LS14 (18 x 14 x 12 mm) for the CEREC/inLab MC XL system in shades 0M1, A1, A2, A3.5, B2, C2 and D2, each in two different degrees of translucency (T = Translucent, HT = High Translucent).
