The other day I randomly grabbed one of our Contourz full contour zirconia units off an outbound shelf just to see how it would stack up in a real world test.

It was also nice to see less gray in the translucency in the higher value shades A1, B1, C1 and BL4. Instead there is now a more natural transition between the body and incisal using the eMax Impulse ingots.
