VOCO America launches Admira Fusion x-tra

Article

VOCO is excited to introduce Admira Fusion x-tra, the world’s first ALL CERAMIC-based direct bulk-fill restorative material. After almost two decades of intensive research and development, VOCO has created the first ever nano-ORMOCER® through the innovative “FUSION” of VOCO’s proven Nano-Hybrid and ORMOCER® (ORganically MOdified CERamic) technologies.

VOCO is excited to introduce Admira Fusion x-tra, the world’s first ALL CERAMIC-based direct bulk-fill restorative material. After almost two decades of intensive research and development, VOCO has created the first ever nano-ORMOCER® through the innovative “FUSION” of VOCO’s proven Nano-Hybrid and ORMOCER® (ORganically MOdified CERamic) technologies. 

As a nano-ORMOCER® Admira Fusion x-tra’s chemistry base is formed by silicon oxide, making up both the glass fillers as well as the ceramic resin matrix, a first of its kind. This unique “Pure Silicate Technology” offers several remarkable advantages including up to 50 percent lower polymerization shrinkage (1.25 percent by volume) than today’s conventional composites, as well as up to 50 percent lower shrinkage stress; two key physical properties as it relates to bulk-fill restoratives. Admira Fusion x-tra has a 4mm depth of cure formulated for fast and long lasting posterior restorations and is available in one universal shade. Admira Fusion’s nano-particulate amplifies its chameleon effect, enhancing its ability to adapt and blend to surrounding tooth structure compared to conventional composites.

The ORMOCER® matrix used within Admira® Fusion x-tra makes the material highly biocompatible, as it contains none of today’s classic monomers (BisGMA [BPA], TEGDMA, UDMA, etc).  With an 84 % (by weight) inorganic filler content, the light-cured, radiopaque Admira Fusion x-tra has excellent strength and wear properties. Additionally it is compatible with all conventional bonding agents and offers homogeneous non-sticky handling.
