AMHERST, N.Y.—Ivoclar Vivadent has announced the introduction of its Efficient Esthetics product portfolio for direct restorative procedures. Designed to help dentists achieve high-quality aesthetic restorations with greater efficiency and predictability, the product combination is said to reduce working steps by up to 58 percent, without compromising restoration durability.
The coordinated products include the Tetric Evo-Line family of composites, Adhese Universal, Bluephase Style LED curing light, and OptraGate lip and cheek retractor.
The Tetric Evo-Line composites include four well-coordinated resins for direct restorative needs and feature refractive index technology to create aesthetic restorations in true A–D shades. Sculptable Tetric EvoCeram and flowable Tetric EvoFlow are universal 2mm layering composites for anterior and posterior restorations. Sculptable Tetric EvoCeram Bulk Fill and flowable Tetric EvoFlow Bulk Fill can both be used for 4mm bulk placement in the posterior region to save clinicians up to 47 percent of placement time compared to conventional composites.
With Adhese Universal—a single-component, light-cured adhesive for direct and indirect bonding procedures and all etching protocols—high bond strengths (>25 MPa) can be achieved. Available in the VivaPen, Adhese Universal can achieve predictable results with virtually no sensitivity.
Designed specifically for intraoral polymerization of light-curing dental materials, the Bluephase Style high-powered Polywave LED curing light features a 10-mm probe that covers the surface of most preparations in one cycle. Clinically proven to effectively cure all materials, the high-powered Bluephase Style LEDs allow for complete, reliable curing in just 10 seconds.
OptraGate is the single use, latex-fee lip and cheek retractor with a unique flexibility and elasticity that make it quick and easy for dental professionals to place and comfortable for patients to wear. The product is available in junior, small, and regular sizes and indicated for a variety of applications—including intraoral scanning and restorative treatments. OptraGate promotes increased access and visibility of the treatment field and improves treatment procedure efficiency.
