Primero® Lab System
Primero Lab System
PRIMERO is an acronym for Prosthetic Mimetic Restoration, because the crown build-up is an exact copy of the natural teeth of the patient. The Primero restoration consist of two layers, a substructure of zirconia with the anatomical contour of natural dentine and a layer of transparant hydrothermal porcelain incisal, with the hardness of natural enamel. The dentine is shaded as a dentin according to the VITA Classical guide. The 2Hue® colormodel assures the exact tooth color where the thickness of the Primero Enamel incisal layer is 0.6 mm.
3 Step porcelain application
The Primero® Lab System was developed for automatic porcelain veneering of zirconia by CAD/CAM. The porcelain layer provides high clinical performance with chip-resistance and natural aesthetics and abrasion against antagonists. The 3 STEP Porcelain Application can directly be implemented in the daily milling operation. Because of the histo-anatomic design, Primero® restorations manifest color gradients, that can also be seen in natural teeth and individualisation without extra effort.
Primero Enamel porcelain sets
Primero restorations normaly do not need further individualisation, because of enamel thickness color gradients. For certain cases and for teeth with particular artifacts, individual accents may be needed. For individividualisation and correction two kits are availble:
Primero Artist Kit, een kit to modify the incisal layer of Primero restorations. The Primero Artist Set with 12 modifiers (dentine and incisal modifiers) to control the individual brightness and to fulfil the highest demands in the art of layering after Hans-Jürgen Joit, ZTM..
Primero Stain Set, a set with most used paste glaze colors to apply artefacts and final corrections of Primero restorations.
