Perfect for even your most demanding esthetic indirect restorations, GC Initial LiSi Press is the first lithium disilicate ceramic ingot with High Density Micronization (HDM), a technology unique to GC that provides exceptional physical properties and aesthetics, according to GC America. HDM uses equally dispersed lithium disilicate micro-crystals to fill the entire glass matrix rather than using traditional larger size crystals that do not take full advantage of the matrix structure, the company said.
The result is the ultimate combination of strength and aesthetics, making GC Initial LiSi Press perfectly suitable for all types of restorations through all levels of transparency, according to the company. Most importantly, HDM technology helps ensure the product remains extremely stable, without distortion or drop in value, the company said.
GC Initial LiSi Press has vibrant and warm color tones with excellent florescence, similar to natural teeth, for very lifelike restorations under any light source, GC America said. GC Initial LiSi Press reverses the issues occasionally experienced with other lithium disilicate systems, such as color stability, surface imperfections, low-value results and distortions, according to the company. GC Initial LiSi Press delivers a stunning, resilient final restoration, the company said.
The product will be available to ship in the U.S. and Canada on or after Feb. 25, 2019.
