Obsidian Ceramic Restorations - Dental Crowns, Bridges, Inlays and Onlays

Obsidian® Lithium Silicate Ceramic

Natural vitality with toughness far surpassing conventional ceramics

Obsidian® lithium silicate ceramic is a state-of-the-art restorative material that can be used for PFM and all-ceramic cases, as well as restorations milled in office. With this impressive versatility, Obsidian enables clinicians to prescribe a single material for virtually any indication in the mouth. A simplified workflow is possible, as using Obsidian easily facilitates a cohesive appearance across the arch, even when the oral situation demands multiple types of restorations. The translucency and esthetics of the material match those of natural dentition, making Obsidian the optimal combination of utility and beauty.

Clinicians who have incorporated in-office milling into their practices can utilize Obsidian Milling Blocks to deliver single-appointment monolithic restorations with great esthetics, lifelike translucency and high strength. Arriving to the practitioner in a partially crystallized state, restorations fabricated from Obsidian Milling Blocks require only a short firing cycle prior to seating.
