Heraeus Licenses its Acclaimed Premium Tooth Library to Sensable for Integration into Intellifit™ Digital Restoration System
SOUTH BEND, INDIANA, March 7, 2011 – Heraeus Kulzer, provider of esthetic dental solutions, and Sensable Dental, leading provider of Touch-Enabled dental restoration design and fabrication solutions, announced today that Sensable Dental is integrating the Heraeus Premium line digital tooth library into its award-winning Intellifit™ Digital Restoration System. Dental labs worldwide using Intellifit now can utilize Heraeus Premium virtual teeth when designing natural-looking dental restorations for dentists and their patients with digital speed, precision and consistency.
In 2009, Heraeus licensed its popular Mondial tooth line to Sensable. The addition of Heraeus’ Premium tooth library further extends the versatility of Sensable’s Intellifit for creating a wide variety of restorations including metal and flexible partials, crowns, bridges, veneers and full contour substructures and overstructures. Officially launched in early 2008 and used by dental labs worldwide, Sensable’s Intellifit system is the first and only TE (Touch Enabled) CAD/CAM system for designing both fixed and removable restorations.
For years, Heraeus has set the standard for natural dental esthetics and functionality by retaining the natural anatomy and morphology of each tooth. By integrating the Premium line virtual teeth, Sensable’s Intellifit system expands dental labs’ choice in tooth libraries to jump-start their digital designs and achieve greater precision and consistency in the restorations they create.
“Heraeus denture teeth have long been synonymous with high-end excellence – providing the patient with both exceptional esthetics and function,” said Bob Steingart, president of Sensable Dental. “By integrating the Premium line digital tooth library into the Intellifit system, we continue to fulfill our promise to provide dental labs with the utmost in versatility, flexibility and productivity.”
“We’re pleased to be able to use our complementary strengths and expertise to provide solutions that allow dental labs to add to their bottom line while providing superior results to the dentists," says Chris Holden, President of Heraeus Kulzer.
The Heraeus Premium tooth library will be included in the newest version of Intellifit, which was announced in Chicago last week at three dental lab industry events timed with the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting.
