This new universal composite from Ultradent features high levels of translucency, allowing for ideal pigmentation and opacification to ensure highly esthetic restorative treatment.
Ultradent has announced the launch of Transcend™, a new universal composite that is designed with high levels of translucency to allow clinicians to achieve esthetic results that patients desire from their restorative work. Transcend uses Ultradent’s Resin Particle Match™ technology to ensure those high levels of translucency which in turn lead to ideal pigmentation and opacity, according to a press release from the company.
Transcend uses a nanohybrid formula that makes it suitable for posterior and anterior restorations, as well as lending it good handling properties. It is said to be malleable without sacrificing strength, and aims to maintain balance in its high wear-resistance but less abrasive nature, per the press release. Transcend also touts the ability to block underlying tooth color via its opacity which eliminates the need for a blocker shade, freeing up inventory space and saving money.
“Transcend composite enables dentists to achieve excellent esthetic results with ease,” Ultradent Sr. VP of Research & Development Neil Jessop says in the press release. “Its unique formulation offers the perfect balance or flexibility, strength, and gloss retention to ensure the long-lasting results patients are seeking.”
Transcend composite also features 4 dentin shades and 2 enamel shades for cases requiring layering.
