Description

Light-cured Core Build-Up Composite
Light-Core is a light-cured core build-up composite. Sculptable and non-slumping, it provides optimal handling. Light-Core has a 5mm depth of cure* at 500 mW/cm2. Light-Core is available in two shades: Translucent and Blue. Translucent is ideal for use under aesthetic restorations, such as all-ceramic crowns, inlays and onlays. Blue is ideal for use in conventional fixed restorations, such as metal-based restorations (all-metal or PFM). Blue facilitates placement when a contrast to tooth structure is desired. This contrast ensures your margins will be placed on tooth structure where they belong. Choose from economical syringes or convenient unit-dose tips.

Unique Benefits

  • Light-cured core material allows for immediate prepping after curing
  • 5mm depth of cure* promotes quick build-ups
  • Strong, fiber reinforced (8.05%) core material offers maximum strength for all core build-ups

Clinical Significance

  • Radiopaque Translucent shade is ideal for use under aesthetic restorations
  • Radiopaque Blue shade facilitates ease of placement and is ideal for use when you need a contrasting color to confirm that your margins are on tooth structure. Recommended for use under metal-based restorations.
