Jensen Dental will be showcasing Imagine™, our newest full contour zirconia at LMT Lab Day next month!

Imagine™ gives you all the translucency of pressed ceramic without all the pressing. With twice the strength of lithium disilicate (769 mPa),create bridges up to three units in length with this new material.

Don't take our word for it, stop by the Jensen booth at Lab Day and see it in action through live demos that will be taking place Friday afternoon and all day Saturday. Hope to see you there!

Visit our website www.jensendental.com or call your Jensen Sales Consultant for more information 800.243.2000.

I've seen this material several times and it IS a game changer! Also, it's mPa is higher than most other "Ultra" translucent materials which is a plus!

When will Jensen start selling Imagine zirconia ?
Is it compatible with 3M's coloring liquids, or new liquids ?
Does it sinter at same times & temps as XT ?
Any longer tool life with Imagine compared to XT ?

Stacey, answers these questions correctly and I will let you send me 2 free pucks...... lol

Charles:
We are launching Imagine in Chicago and plan to start selling it immediately after. It absolutely is compatible with Lava Plus liquids. It sinters at 1450c which is 80-100c lower than XT. I don't have reporting back on bur life but my guess is it will be better, certainly no worse. BTW, the flexural strength is 769 mPa which is considerably higher than the others you are seeing. Very exciting times!

It all sounds good, but consider the trade offs...so trans that now we're back to dealing with stump shades, and even though its stronger than e.max, its limited to 3 unit bridges. Ill wait and see.

Stacey, do you know if Jensen will have some sort of stump shade chart kind of like the emax chart so we will know when Imagine can't be used.
Minimum thickness of zirconia on darker stump shades.. etc etc tips
Maybe zirconia-Imagine, blocks out darker stump shades better than LD,, Emax LT ?
Imagine is comparable to LT's or closer to MT ?

More like HT. Your not going to be using this material over Ti abutments, but Inlays, Onlays, Full Contour, Veneers, 3 Unit Bridges, and over Zr Abutments. Imagine e.Max HT but with the ability to mill better margins and anatomy, customizing the shade of the restoration instead of using a monochromatic ingot or block, and stronger Mpa.
This material will do to e.Max what e.Max did to Empress and Authentic.

will this be available in lava blocks, 98mm pucks, and 100mm pucks? And, what thicknesses?

Joe, this will be available in frames and pucks. Thicknesses will be shared when we have confirmation so stay tuned.

What is the translucency % at? Most zirconia seems to be around 30%ish. Emax is about 65%.

You mentioned veneers. Does this mean you can etch and bond this material somehow?

My doctors and I have been placing zirconia veneers since 2012 after coming across the article written by Jack D. Griffin, Jr., DMD found in the June 2011, Volume 7, Issue 6 of Inside dentistry.
http://www.dentalaegis.com/id/2011/06/bonding-of-zirconia-veneers

"Z-Prime Plus, which uses MDP and carboxylic monomers formulated specifically for zirconia, alumina, and metal.
Studies have shown that these phosphate monomers are very effective in improving cohesive zirconia bonding to resin cements. The phosphate monomers form the basis for chemical bonds between the zirconia and the primer allowing for a cohesive bond to the resin cement. This reliable bond is critical especially in a minimally retentive case such as veneers."

A brief step by step: Zirconia cannot be etched and bonded in a traditional manner. After try-in and cleaning with alcohol, the zirconia primer is placed into the restorations and then dried.
The teeth are then pumiced and etched with phosphoric acid. DBA is then then applied (All-Bond 3),air-thinned, and dual-cure composite luting material is applied onto the teeth and the veneers are seated. Clean up is done and then all restorations are then cured for 40 seconds from both the lingual and facial.

We don't do them all the time, but the ones we did have been holding strong. With this new material I can see us doing more. We use that Z-Prime+ from BISCO for both veneers and maryland bridges.

so zirconia veneers, eh?

what will they think of next.

Imagine ZR is a zirconia which means that it cannot be traditionally etched for bonding. Considering this is truly a millable material that exhibits outstanding esthetics and refractive properties in a monolithic state, we do believe it shows great promise.

As far as translucency goes, there is no standardized method for testing this and the variables involved in processing it in the laboratory vary significantly (Sintering furnace temps, heat rates, holds, etc). Having said that, it is being compared to the translucency that lithium disilicate exhibits. Additionally, it is colored internally through the use of dyeing liquids and effect shades which offers great flexibility and customization without the need for layering ceramic on it, but you are welcome to do as it is indicated for this use as well (Substructure).
