2 questions to MDT Volkmar Schmidt, Wiesbaden

“Creapearl 2 is like a modern Porsche”

The brain isn’t jarred in any way because the eyes don’t question the denture tooth, they simply accept it as natural.

 

Mr Schmidt, Creapearl 2 is Creation’s new range of denture teeth, which they’ve brought out for IDS 2015. What makes this range what it is, for you?

Geller has managed to create a denture tooth that fully matches the expectations of the observer, in both its inner and outer morphology. The brain isn’t jarred in any way because the eyes don’t question the denture tooth, they simply accept it as natural.

The real success for me is the subtle opalescence in the incisal area – that blue-orange tone is very difficult to produce in ceramic. This opalescence, which doesn’t jump out at you straight away, has something to do with natural light reflexes.

Now and again I’ve previously thought: I could do with a bit more “Wow” in that denture tooth, and that’s exactly what Creapearl 2 offers.

 

So does it make the previous model redundant?

No, both denture teeth have their merits. Creapearl 2 takes it further, but it doesn’t make the previous model immediately look old. Put it this way: the new prosthetic denture tooth is like a modern Porsche, with which everyone can drive around the racetrack and get amazing lap times. Creapearl is more like a solid Porsche, one that you can have a lot of fun with, but that you have to make adjustments for.

So Creapearl 2 is better suited as an introductory denture tooth. It will certainly convince even the young dental technicians who essentially want to layer ceramic, but haven’t got there yet. Because in order to layer such a high-class and high-aesthetic tooth in ceramic you need a lot of experience and skill.

In short: for me, Creapearl 2 is even less of a manufactured denture tooth, and much more natural for it!
