      Hey everyone !

      So I have been playing around with Creation ZiCT porcelain for the last 3 weeks . Haven't done much with it yet, but here is two cases I enjoyed doing with it .

      Prettau style screw retained bridge , white and pink

      Full arch , 4 bridges . 6 anterior is layered on the facial with full palatal zirconia

      Pros
      • Shrinknage is almost zero. Have never experienced anything like this with any other system I have tried. Same for tearing at the interproximals . ZERO
      • Great warmth shade wise . I can't fully explain it but it looks really really pretty .
      • When doing facial layering only , the connection between zirconia and ceramic at the incisal is invisible . Unlike e.max .
      • Great stability through multiple firings . No more missing rounded edges, no more value change that I had with every non high fusing system I have tried . And when I say all , I mean all .
      • Great range of effects , enamels , pink porcelain .

      Cons
      • I need to learn a new system and it is a bit different from what i was using till now. Need to mix a lot .
      • I am not Stefan Picha or Skip Carpenter ... damn !!

      Can you describe a first dentin firing program you have used on first case?

      ZI-F Party

      I know, I know, maybe I should try it, but since it (ZI-F) fires at a lower temp, I'm able to use it on more framework types.

      Beautiful! I love zict too. Another huge thing i notice is that the incisal edges dont chip away as much as im grinding in the wrong direction. With most other ceramics including zif, pretty big pieces chip away. Feels much more dense. Chroma is a bit intense i think. I usually mix 1/3-1/2 of a lighter dentin with my rxed dentin shade.

      Think he means diff substructure materials. Zr, emax, lisi. I use zif sometimes on my emax and hass amber press. But i pretty much use zict for zr unless i dont have a specific powder as i dont buy full kits.

      Same here, pretty much since it came out in the original formula, pre-"F" version.

      Very nice work and excellent outcome, Drizzt.

      When are you coming to Jensen Education Day and doing your hands on table clinic, or doing
      a 2-3 day hands on course?

      Amazing work Drizzt..
      Value, chroma, hue, texture, and translucency is spot on. This case is
      beyond incredible.... Do you feel Creation ZI-CT helps in achieving this kind of level of work ?
      Did you use any external staining when you glazed ?

      Thank you all for the kind comments .

      Charles yes I believe that if I made this case with another porcelain it would look different . With e.max a bit low value, with GC a bit hard in the eye for me . A bit cold . CT is really bright and looks really nice in the mouth
