Two opposites make a whole – a single composite for cementation and core build-up

This has long been considered impossible, due to conflicting requirements. By means of patented Active-Connect-Technology (ACT), however, dental specialists

Kettenbach Dental have succeeded in meeting the challenge without compromising the material. The result is the Visalys® CemCore system, which enables both adhesive cementation and core build-up to be achieved with just a few components. Interlinking brands and the business.

Just three components for cementation and core build-up: The Visalys® CemCore system from Kettenbach

Cementation composites need to be as hydrophilic as possible and highly fluid, whereas core build-up requires a high degree of stability, and a material that swells as little as possible. Kettenbach Dental has now developed a groundbreaking technology that simply eliminates the conflicts: Active-Connect-Technology allows optimal mixing of the somewhat hydrophobic cementation composite, Visalys® CemCore, with the hydrophilic Visalys® Tooth Primer, on the damp surface of the tooth.

Despite its hydrophobic properties, the innovative composite achieves a high adhesive strength without swelling. Visalys® CemCore flows superbly into every clearance, and yet displays a high degree of stability: gentle application of pressure ensures the degree of flow required when carrying out restoration, for example. Release the pressure, and Visalys® CemCore reverts to its firm consistency so that excess material does not expand and is easy to remove after application.

The Visalys® CemCore system incorporates three basic components: the composite cement after which it is named, one single-component primer for teeth and another for

restoration. It is exceptionally convenient to use and can be tailored to the application: Visalys® CemCore is available in the tried and tested automix syringe. The range of five different colors [Universal (A2/A3), Translucent, Bleach, Opaque and Dark (A4)] ensures an excellent basis for the aesthetic outcome. For securing restorations where outstanding aesthetics are demanded, additional color-matched try-in pastes are available where required. The Tooth Primer can be applied direct to dentine or enamel without mixing, and the Restorative Primer is suitable for pre-treatment of all restoration surfaces.

This makes the Visalys® CemCore system suitable both for cementation and also for core build-up using a single composite – the Active-Connect-Technology ensures powerful adhesion with Visalys® Tooth Primer and Visalys® Restorative Primer, while low liquid absorption ensures a high degree of dimensional stability in the core build-up and hence a reduced risk of fracture in the final restoration. Visalys® CemCore is available to try in Universal (A2/A3) color with a starter pack, which includes not only the Visalys® CemCore but also Visalys® Tooth Primer and Visalys® Restorative Primer, along with the required accessories.
