Heraeus Kulzer has announced the U.S. launch of PALA cre-active, a light-curing color fluid system used for the customized characterization of dentures. 

The PALA cre-active system includes a variety of fluid colors (white, polar, pink, red, maroon, black) and gingiva material (pink, shade 200, R50, light pink, clear and gum) designed to create a highly natural, realistic appearance. PALA cre-active color fluids can be mixed into the cre-active gingiva material as color intensifying agents. Due to the availability of both paste and liquid consistencies and six different color shades, highly customized gingival regions reportedly can be created featuring smooth or rough surfaces with transparent, light red or dark red effects.

When used in combination with Signum® connector bonding agent, the PALA cre-active system is said to be suitable for characterizing full and partial dentures, as well as implant-retained dentures. While PALA cre-active can be used with most light-curing units, Heraeus Kulzer suggests that  the Signum HiLite® power light-curing unit is ideal for the polymerization of the characterized denture. 

Other reported advantages laboratories will experience with the PALA cre-active system are quick and easy application (12 anterior teeth can be done in approximately 30 minutes), quick corrections, and the ability to be both ground and polished.

 “We are very excited about the ability of PALA cre-active to help dental laboratories economically and efficiently provide their customers with remarkably natural looking, individually characterized dentures,” said Sonny Serreno, Director of Scientific & Clinical Affairs for Heraeus Kulzer. “The combination of PALA cre-active, Signum connector bonding agent and the Signum HiLite power curing light allows dental laboratories to differentiate themselves and increase the value they bring to their dental practices.”
