To prepare the VITA VM13 BASIC and BUILD UP layering, first apply WASH OPAQUE and OPAQUE to the substructure.
WASH OPAQUE fulfills the following functions:
1. Formation of the required adhesive oxides
2. Formation of a bond to the alloy surface
3. Enhancing the chroma of the restoration, particularly in the case of precious metal-free alloys
Wash opaque (WO) and the respective opaque material (OP) or SUN OPAQUE (SO) materials are available for the wash-bake. WO, OP and SO have the same chemical-physical properties and hence are perfectly suitable for the wash-bake.
For opaque firing, one opaque material is required for reproducing the VITA SYSTEM 3D-MASTER shades (one for each lightness level OP0-OP5) and the VITA classical A1–D4 shades (one for each shade).
Note: To produce a more intense and warmer shade, the respective OPAQUE can be mixed with Wash Opaque (WO golden-orange) or SUN OPAQUE (SO1 yellowish, SO2 orange and SO3 reddish). However, the final result of the restoration may differ significantly from the shade sample.
