It ensures the precise positioning of the restoration in the mouth
Why does the curing time become longer?
Possible reason one is that there is too little powder and too much liquid. It is recommended to follow the instructions, or the doctor can adjust it according to the environment, temperature, and personal usage habits. Possible reason 2: The powder is damp. It is recommended to tighten the cap tightly after use and store in a dry place.
What is the reason for the soreness reported by patients after use?
Possible reason 1, there is leakage of pulp and near the pulp (<1mm). It is recommended to use calcium hydroxide cement or zinc oxide clove oil cement to protect the marrow before repairing. Possible reason 2: Glass ionomers will absorb a certain amount of water when they are solidified. If the teeth are dried or blown dry, it may cause soreness. It is recommended that the tooth should be properly moistened (without water drops) before the crown is glued to compensate for the moisture absorbed by the glass ionomer during the curing reaction.
How to deal with the discolored or stained PMMA provisional restorations?
Huge PMMA blocks are with good compactness, ensuring outstanding ability to resist stain. With appropriate polishing treatment, the restoration would retain high gloss even after prolonged utilization. If the restoration is still stained or discolored, you could remove the stained areas by cleaning and polishing the surface. You have to replace the stained restorations when the above operations are not permitted.
How to choose the thickness when I purchase PMMA blocks?
It depends on the applications. If you’d like to mill full dentures or full-arch implant prostheses, the 25mm or thicker blocks are more recommended. For conventional crowns or bridges restorations, you could choose the thickness according to the size of restorations.
Is there any difference in the numbers of layers for Huge multilayer PMMA blocks in different thickness (e.g. 14mm and 30mm) ?
The design of Huge Multilayer PMMA blocks are strictly follows the principle “ Seamless Gradient from cervical to incisal “, ensuring the restorations to own outstanding gradient appearance. No matter which thickness the prostheses milled from, they could achieve the excellent beauty of natural teeth.
How long do digital PMMA full dentures last?
The lifetime of dentures is related to the oral conditions, maintenance habits and other factors. Generally speaking, the lifetime of digital dentures is not much different compared to traditional dentures.
How to deal with it if the digital dentures are broken or stained?
The treatment is the same as conventional dentures.
How many missing teeth can the bridge span? (Whether there is a force point in the middle)
There are no more than 3 missing teeth, preferably 2.
How long can the bridge be builded by HS?
HS can do a half-mouth long bridge with 14 teeth.
For single crowns, how many can be made on a piece of AT bolck?
The number of restorations made on a piece of block is related to the size of the restoration and the ability of typesetting. Unsure how many can be made, usually about 15.
Zirconia teeth are light, not transparent enough, and white after sintering
Possible reason analysis
a problem with the sintering process or the sintering furnace. Insufficient crystallization time will cause problems such as under-cooking and whitening of zirconia (the main crystallization temperature is between 1000-1450, the heating speed is slow, and at least 120 minutes of heat preservation is required). If the sintering temperature is too high, the dyeing effect will become lighter. First confirm whether the sintering program used by the customer is the standard sintering curve provided by us, and then confirm whether the customer’s sintering furnace has problems such as unstable temperature field or uncleaned for a long time. If necessary, check the temperature field, or suggest that the customer replace the sintering furnace for sintering .
The teeth are not dried during the dyeing process, resulting in uneven local staining, and the residual water in the teeth may cause a large difference in local temperature of the teeth, resulting in insufficient local crystallization or cracks.
Cracks or fractures in teeth or long bridges after sintering. Possible reasons analysis
Due to the abnormality of the bur or engraving machine, cracks in the restoration were not found during the cutting process or re-grinding process, resulting in fracture after sintering.
Not dried after dyeing, resulting in uneven local temperature during the sintering process, cracks or breaks
There is a problem with the sintering process, the heating speed is too fast or the cooling speed is too fast, causing cracks or fractures
Problems such as fracture and porcelain collapse during the cutting of zirconia
The customer's tool has been used for too long, the customer's engraving machine has been uncalibrated for a long time, or the spindle has been deviated, and the restoration design has problems
Can the sintering curve be modified?(Change 6 steps into others)
Yes. Since the sintering machine used by individual customers cannot complete the 6-step sintering setting, we can modify it to 4 steps according to the guidance of the project department. But it is necessary to control the sintering temperature and time.

It is necessary to ensure the stability of any periodontal condition at the earliest stage possible.
How do l ensure my VinciSmile stays beautiful once my aligner treatment has finished?
Following your treatment plan, you need to ensure you wear your retainer all day every day for 6 months (remove only when eating and brushing teeth). It is then recommended that the retainer is worn at night 7-12 months post treatment (whilst sleeping). If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, it is strongly recommended to wear a retainer every day for life.
Is it uncomfortable to wear the VinciSmile aligners?
Most people experience tooth soreness for a few days when starting each new stage. This is totally normal and indicates that the aligners are exerting orthodontic force on your teeth. This soreness will gradually disappear in the following days. If it doesn't, please immediately contact your doctor.
