Vita VM9 has been designed as a special ceramic featuring a fine structure for partially yttrium-stabilized Zr02 substructures with a CTE of approx. 10.5 The material is also perfectly suited for individualizing VITABLOCS and for individualizing Vita PM9 restorations. Like all Vita VM materials, Vita VM9 excels in its refraction and reflection behavior which is similar to that of enamel. Accordingly, the Base Dentine and Transpa Dentine porcelains which have been perfectly matched within the Vita System 3D-Master allow the production of restorations with a highly natural appearance. The use of fluorescent and opalescent additional materials results in individual and aesthetically appealing results. A modified manufacturing process helped to create a new type of ceramic. Compared to conventional ceramics, the structure that is obtained after firing reveals a particularly homogeneous distribution of the crystal and glass phase. This structure is defined as fine structure. The fine structure provides a number of benefits for dental technicians, dentists and patients alike. Thanks to the homogeneous sealed surface, Vita VM9 offers excellent grinding and polishing properties in situ to ensure smooth and perfectly sealed surfaces.
