Esthetic cementation made simple
Schaan, Liechtenstein – 2. October 2014
Ivoclar Vivadent introduces the new luting composite Variolink Esthetic to the market.
The new luting composite Variolink Esthetic is an esthetic light- and dual-curing composite material for the permanent cementation of demanding ceramic and composite restorations. The material represents the next generation of the well-established, esthetic luting composite Variolink.
This new composite is characterized by its combination of exceptional esthetics and user-friendly processing. To ensure precise shade matching of the restoration with the surrounding dentition, the manufacturer has developed the "Effect" shade system. This new system includes five different shades, which enable colour-neutral cementation in addition to luting with brightening or darkening of the restoration. The reactive and patented light initiator Ivocerin safeguards the material’s exceptional shade stability.
The smart combination of light initiator and light sensitivity filter allows the dental professional to remove excess material with exceptional ease after successful pre-polymerization with light. Ivocerin ensures fast and reliable curing of the material during the subsequent light polymerization process. Special fillers are responsible for imparting the material with good flow properties as well as stability. The cement is easy to extrude from the syringe. Excess material smoothly flows from the cement gap, but remains stable at the cementation joint so that it can be readily removed.
In combination with Adhese Universal and Monobond Plus, Variolink Esthetic ensures clinically successful cementation of demanding restorations. Moreover, the composite can also be used with the proven adhesives Syntac and ExciTE F.
