Kerr Restoratives announced the launch of Maxcem Elite Chroma, said to be the first self-etch/self-adhesive resin cement offering a color cleanup indicator, reportedly making it the smartest cement available on the market today.

The Smart Cement™ begins with a pink color that fades at the gel state, which is designed to tell the clinician the optimal time to cleanup excess cement. The pink color will disappear after both self-cure and tack cure, reportedly allowing for maximum flexibility in its use. In addition to the color cleanup indicator, Maxcem Elite Chroma also offers One-Peel™ cleanup, automix delivery system, easy no-refrigeration storage and compatibility with all indirect restorations.

Reportedly featuring best-in-class adhesion when compared to other leading self-adhesive cements, Maxcem Elite Chroma is said to form a strong and durable bond with a wide variety of dental substrates and is compatible with all indirect restorations: anterior or posterior ceramics, PFMs, metal restorations and CAD/CAM materials. 

“Maxcem Elite Chroma is a prime example of how we continually provide innovative products to address the evolving needs of the dentist,” said Phil Prentice, vice president, North American Marketing, Kerr. “As a company, our new addition to our cements portfolio and how we provide a total solution to the dentist as Kerr Restoratives is how we strive to do more everyday.”

Radiopaque for easy identification on X-rays, the cement is available in a dual-barrel, automix syringe system supplied with single-use automix tips and optional curved dispensing tips designed to allow the user to deliver the desired volume of cement directly into restoration and/or tooth preparations.
