What to do if the ceramic cracks during contouring?

Elegant Dent ceramics contain leucite and most of the time ceramic cracks during this process occur because a conventional leucite-free ceramic which are available on the market was used.

Thanks to the inclusion of leucite crystals this will be avoided in Elegant Dent if firing parameters are adhered to and complete crystal formation occurs, cracks will be avoided. However, using an uncalibrated furnace may lead to insufficient or over sintering which can lead to a more glassy phase and can be susceptible to cracks when contouring.

Please refer to suggested firing parameters and use a calibrated furnace.
