The latest CLEARFIL dental materials from Kuraray Noritake Dental are a high-viscosity universal flowable composite and a single-bottle adhesive.

Both CLEARFIL MAJESTY™ ES Flow Universal and CLEARFIL™ Universal Bond Quick 2 build on the company’s previous advancements in dental material development with a focus on providing solutions that are simple for clinicians to use while achieving the desired physical and esthetic outcomes.

Described in a press release as a versatile flowable material that provides durable and esthetic outcomes, CLEARFIL MAJESTY ES Flow Universal is a high-viscosity material featuring a unique light-diffusion filler matrix said to allow a single shade to blend in with tooth shades across the entire spectrum of the 16 VITA classical shades. The formulation is designed to approximate the light-diffusion properties of natural tooth structure. This allows restorations fabricated with the material to blend into the surrounding dentition.

The material is suited for use in both the posterior and anterior regions. A single Universal shade is all that is needed for posterior restorations, while an additional shade, Universal Dark, is available for use in the anterior.

“CLEARFIL MAJESTY ES Flow Universal represents a major advancement in flowable composite technology,” says Dinesh Weerasinghe, PhD, senior technical and marketing manager, dental division, Kuraray America in a press release. “By combining superior physical properties with unparalleled esthetics, this material simplifies the restorative process while delivering results that are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. This allows CLEARFIL MAJESTY ES Flow Universal to be used as a direct restorative material indicated for all cavity classes.”

Formulated from a custom blend of the 10-Methacryloyloxydecyl dihydrogen phosphate (MDP) monomer originally developed by Kuraray Noritake, along with Amide, and Urethane Tetramethacrylate (UTM), CLEARFIL Universal Bond Quick 2 is a single-bottle adhesive system that can be applied quickly, without the need for an activation step. The adhesive forms an immediate bond to both dentin and enamel while also creating a thin, uniform adhesive layer that avoids pooling, which allows for stronger, more consistent bonds.

CLEARFIL Universal Bond Quick 2 is suited for use with a range of direct and indirect restorative approaches including light-cured composites, and self-adhesive cements. When used with self-adhesive resin cements, a separate activator is not needed.

The adhesive is available in either bottle or unit-dose delivery solutions, allowing individual practices to stock their preferred adhesive format.

“CLEARFIL Universal Bond Quick 2 represents the next generation of adhesive dentistry,” says Weerasinghe in a press release. “By addressing common challenges like application time, film thickness, and bond layer uniformity, this product delivers exceptional performance that simplifies the bonding process for clinicians.”
