More dental labs are continuing to expand their milling capacity. The same trend applies to the dental office space with smaller, more personal machines that offer quick, same-day service. Compared to manual prosthetic creation, milling machines save not only time, but also energy and materials. The economies of scale offered by milling machines have prompted significant increases in the size of the associated block and disc market. Long-term potential lies more within the disc market. Discs allow more prosthetics to be milled per unit of material than blocks; in an industry dealing with a large number of units and stiff pricing competition, reducing costs is all too important. The €312 million value of the 2015 European CAD/CAM block and disc market will see strong, steady growth as more than just dental labs continue the shift toward digital dentistry.
The European CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) block and disc market includes both permanent and temporary material types for blocks and discs. Permanent materials include ceramics and metals, while temporary substances are most often waxes. The market’s latest major technological development was the introduction of zirconia. Currently there are variations of zirconia, porcelain, glass ceramic and lithium disilicate, and the latest materials are hybrids. Hybrids are typically an alloy of ceramics. These developments continue to expand the CAD/CAM material market. More dental labs are expanding their milling capacities, but the real boon for future development lies in the orthodontic space. The ability to rapidly produce devices on a same-day basis and at a lower long-term cost will allow orthodontic offices to increase patient numbers. However, it is likely that the orthodontic market will consolidate as well, as the scale of production offered by CAD/CAM systems is too great to pass up.

Dental CAD/CAM Companies Analyzed
Ivoclar Vivadent led the European CAD/CAM block and disc market in 2015. Ivoclar Vivadent’s share in the disc market came from its purchase of Wieland Dental in late 2012. This brought a variety of disc options under the Zenotec and Zenostar names including zirconia, wax, acrylic, chromium cobalt and titanium.
Amann Girrbach was second in the 2015 European CAD/CAM block and disc market. Amann Girrbach sold its line of discs with a broad range of materials such as zirconia, CoCr (cobalt-chromium), feldspar ceramic and featured blocks from VITA Zahnfabrik, which were compatible with Amann Girrbach’s milling machines.
