Tetric N-Ceram Bulk Fill : The efficient way of filling
Tetric N-Ceram Bulk Fill from Ivoclar Vivadent offers dental professionals an efficient solution for restoring posterior teeth. The mouldable composite resin can be placed in increments of up to four-millimetres using the bulk filling technique.
Dentists no longer have to place fillings in several two-millimetre increments that need to be cured individually. Tetric N-Ceram Bulk Fill enables posterior teeth to be restored with only one layer measuring up to four-millimetres in thickness, which considerably heightens efficiency. The patented light activator Ivocerin is responsible for ensuring the complete cure of the filling. Compared with conventional light initiators, the Ivocerin polymerization booster is much more reactive. Therefore, polymerization is initiated even in very deep cavities and the material is fully cured.
Short polymerization time, long working time
Even though Tetric N-Ceram Bulk Fill cures quickly in only ten seconds (> 1,000 mW/cm2), it can be shaped for as long as 3 minutes and 20 seconds. The light sensitivity inhibitor shields the material from ambient light and allows it to be contoured without the pressure of time. Due to its smooth consistency, Tetric N-Ceram Bulk Fill readily adapts to cavity walls. A specially conditioned composite filler, also called a shrinkage stress reliever, keeps shrinkage and shrinkage stress during polymerization to a minimum. It acts like a spring to dampen the forces generated during shrinkage. Tetric N-Ceram Bulk Fill is available in three universal shades: IVA, IVB and IVW.
A well-coordinated system
Tetric N-Ceram Bulk Fill forms a part of the Tetric N-Collection, a comprehensive restorative system for the fabrication of high-quality standard restorations. All the products of this system are coordinated to ensure clinical success. Apart from the universal composite Tetric N-Ceram, the Tetric N-Collection comprises the flowable composite Tetric N-Flow and the total-etch adhesive Tetric N-Bond, which is best used in conjunction with N-Etch, a 37-percent phosphoric acid etching gel. Alternatively, the self-etching adhesive Tetric N-Bond is available.
