Straumann CARES Launches New Zerion Shades and ZrO2 Customized Abutment Blanks

ANDOVER, Massachusetts – (April 2, 2013) – As part of our continuous effort to provide dental laboratories with best-in-class products, we are happy to announce two enhancements to our CARES portfolio.

New lighter and more translucent zerion®

Following a positive Market Acceptance Test, we now offer zerion® shades that are slightly brighter and more translucent than the previously available shades.

Effective April 2, these improved shades will replace existing zerion shades. No action is required on the laboratories part - processing procedures for zerion do not change, and no software update is required. This product enhancement is available for our dental laboratory customers using CARES® Visual platforms from 5.IO to the new CARES System 8.0.

Larger ZrO2 Customized Abutment blank sizes for CARES 8.0 and CARES 6.2 Windows customers*

We are also pleased to announce that our ZrO2 blank sizes have been increased in height and diameter. Additionally, we have lowered the emergence profile for bone level implant blanks for increased design flexibility.

Straumann CARES 8.0 and 6.2 Windows customers will benefit from these larger blanks by simply updating their software after April 2nd, 2013.
