Throughout the clinical treatment journey, Ivoclar offers a harmonized suite of materials to support the various stages of direct restorative dentistry, enabling procedures that are fast, improved, and strong.

Stronger: Ivoclar's high-quality dental products not only offer patients outstanding quality and esthetics but are also formulated to enhance the efficiency of the dental team.

Ivoclar has crafted a compelling direct restorative workflow that seamlessly integrates esthetics, quality, and efficiency, ensuring that each step from isolation to preventive care is meticulously coordinated. Key components of this workflow include:

  • OptraGate®: This latex-free lip and cheek retractor provides effective and rapid relative isolation, ensuring a clear view of the treatment field and patient comfort.
  • Adhese® Universal: A single-component, light-cured adhesive for direct and indirect bonding procedures, delivered in the user-friendly VivaPen, which offers up to 4 times more applications per ml of content, thus enhancing the practice's economic efficiency.
  • Tetric® Line: Comprising 4 coordinated composite materials, the Tetric Line ensures an efficient workflow and excellent esthetic results, with time savings of up to 51% in the posterior region, according to Ivoclar. The Tetric Line includes 4-millimeter composites Tetric PowerFill and Tetric PowerFlow, known for their lifelike esthetic properties and reliable curing behavior, as well as universal composites Tetric EvoFlow and Tetric Prime.
  • OptraSculpt®: Designed for non-stick shaping and contouring of composite resin, these instruments ensure effortless composite contouring.
  • Bluephase® PowerCure: Offering intelligent light-curing with short exposure times, this curing light is equipped with patented Polyvision technology to actively support dentists during the curing process.
  • OptraGloss®: A universal polisher suitable for extraoral and intraoral high-gloss polishing, providing smooth and shiny restoration surfaces in just 1 step.

For effective protection of finished restorations, applying a fluoride-containing protective varnish is recommended, strengthening protection against caries and erosion, treating hypersensitive tooth necks, increasing enamel acid resistance, and preventing sensitivities.
