GC Initial LF Basic Set | MPN # 877006
GC Initial can create metal-ceramic restorations all the way to full-ceramic. This product consists of six ceramics in one integrated product line with one color system. No longer does the ceramist have to spend valuable time learning to use a myriad of different ceramics from an array of manufacturers to create the variety of restorations which may be needed to complete a case. Each GC Initial ceramic is adapted to meet the needs of its particular fabrication process and framework, such as its coefficient of thermal expansion (or CTE). Stress cracks and fractures are therefore avoided, which assures strong bonding, adhesion and retention. With GC Initial, you need to master only one layering technique and one shade system. The Initial ceramic system allows you to use the identical processing method for all components using a single shade system. You don't have to re-adjust to other unaccustomed layering techniques or layering systems. GC Initial gives you more essential time to be creative. It doesn’t matter if you are working with full ceramic, metal-based, titanium or zirconium oxide or aluminum oxide frameworks; this system has its own components when low-fusing technology or the ceramic pressing techniques are used. GC Initial is also ideally suited for use with the proven sintering technique. GC Initial MC is used for the first coating on investment dies. Your work can then be completed easily and efficiently with the "low-fusing" component, GC Initial LF.
To extend the unparalleled shading system of GC Initial, we've introduced GC Initial Bleach Shades with a unique color set that allows for matching even the lightest tooth shades. They are available as separate sets, each containing different components. When adding them together, you can increasingly create aesthetic restorations.
With the same shading system and build-up technique, GC Initial requires a short-learning curve and can easily be adapted by high volume labs or tooth design boutiques, regardless of the substructure or framework. This product was developed for maximum technique tolerance, which is very forgiving and has extremely low shrinkage.
