Kuraray Noritake Dental unveiled a pair of new products in its CLEARFIL dental materials line this week and Friday night at a reception at the CDA Presents the Art + Science of Dentistry, Richard Young, DDS, showed off a number of impressive cases he performed using CLEARFIL MAJESTY™ ES Flow Universal and CLEARFIL™ Universal Bond Quick 2.

Dr Young, a very early adopter of advanced bonding techniques, is an Assistant Professor of Restorative Dentistry at Loma Linda University in the under graduate dental esthetics program, and practice management courses. At Friday’s event in Anaheim, he explained how the new high-viscosity universal flowable composite and single-bottle adhesive allow him to perform restoratives procedures with confidence.

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.

Dinesh Weerasinghe, PhD, senior technical and marketing manager, dental division, Kuraray America, introduced Dr Young at Friday’s launch reception but not before his presentation highlighted several breakthrough products that the company has developed over the years, many of which changed the way clinicians treat patients and many which changed the capabilities of bonding.

Weerasinghe explained the vast research and development, along with testing and clinician feedback that takes place before any new Kuraray product hits the market.

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 easy to use while also delivering great physical and esthetic outcomes.

Dr Young added that the new CLEARFIL Universal Bond Quick 2 represents the next generation of adhesive dentistry. The adhesive is suited for use with a range of direct and indirect restorative approaches including light-cured composites, and self-adhesive cements. He shared a variety of cases where patients were treated with the two new products with great results, some cases of which his colleague friends didn’t think were possible.

When used with self-adhesive resin cements, a separate activator is not needed for CLEARFIL Universal Bond Quick 2. Both Dr Young and Weerasinghe added that the new adhesive simplifies the bonding process with benefits that include enhancements in application time, film thickness, and bond layer uniformity.
