Kettenbach LP's Visalys® Temp reportedly sets new materials standards for provisional crowns and bridges. Visalys® Temp is said to ensure demonstrably stronger temporaries that are highly esthetic, more fracture-resistant and manufactured without BPA.

Visalys® Temp is a two-component BPA free resin based on a multifunctional acrylic composite. It can be used to make highly esthetic temporary crowns, partial crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and veneers including long-term provisionals. Now dentists can make provisional restorations that are remarkably stable and fracture resistant due to its unique, new monomer structure.

Scientific studies at the University of Erlangen, as well as extensive clinical practice tests, demonstrate that Visalys® Temp has excellent mechanical properties in comparison with leading competitor products. The stability and fracture resistance of a crown and bridge material are defined by six main parameters: bending strength, impact strength, diametral tensile strength, elastic modulus, fatigue factor, and Barcol hardness. In an independent in vivo market study, dentists rated provisional restorations made of Visalys® Temp as being clearly more break-resistant than other manufacturers’ temporaries; 90 percent of those surveyed said they would switch to Visalys® Temp.

 

Additionally, the material is said to be easy-to-use and offers optimal esthetic results in addition to stability. The smooth surface ensures a pleasant feeling in the mouth and impedes plaque formation. Visalys

Temp can be precisely milled and minimizes dust formation. Its natural fluorescence and translucency are optimal for restorations of front teeth. Visalys

Temp also contains no bisphenol A, a substance suspected of impairing health.
