KATANA™ AVENCIA™ Block is a new type of hybrid ceramic developed bringing together the organic/inorganic technology and experience that we have gained through long years developing and working with restorative materials.

Produced by an Innovative Manufacturing Method

KATANA™ AVENCIA™ Block is produced using our unique manufacturing method.
The nano-sized fillers are densely compressed into a block, which is then uniformly infused with resin monomer.

The resin is then polymerized by heating it. Our new type of hybrid ceramic has great mechanical strength to withstand occlusal pressure, as well as excellent gloss retention.

Superior Polishability and Polish Retention
