Don Cornell from Jensen Dental and I discuss the latest in their characterization system: MiYo. It has a glaze component with colors that truly give you: WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get.) The colors are formulated in a way that you do not see any significant chroma loss, or increase after firing. The best part, however, is that you have the ability to put “color on top of color” without mixing the colors! It is an amazing property of the material! Most stains will instantly mix into one another, but not MiYo, unless you intend to do so.
It has two other components: Structure and Pink. The Structure material is a hard ceramic material that has a unique property called, “sheer thinning.” As you manipulate the material the liquid releases the tension of the ceramic and it becomes pliable. It is intended to be used after the MiYo Color is heat-set, and applied over it. It gives excellent texture and can be used to make small anatomical changes.
The Pink System of MiYo then allows gingival characterization in various chromas and Structure textures.
