Introducing the Intelligently Simplified Single Shade Composite with Light Diffusion Technology (LDT)
From the innovators of dental composite technology—Kuraray Noritake Dental—comes a simplified solution for common posterior restorations, independent of the underlying and adjacent tooth structure.
The single-shade concept of CLEARFIL MAJESTY™ ES-2 Universal composite does away with the need to determine and select the right composite shade for posterior restorations, thereby streamlining the restorative procedure and also saving time. When using CLEARFIL MAJESTY™ ES-2 Universal, a single shade is all it takes. The material also comes with exceptional handling, excellent polishabilty and excellent wear resistance properties.
Due to the material’s specific level of translucency and the integration of Kuraray Noritake Dental’s Light Diffusion Technology (LDT), a blocker or opaquer is not needed. LDT makes restorations diffuse light in a way similar to natural tooth structure, thereby enabling the composite to integrate easily and smoothly into the preparation, resulting in virtually invisible margins.
“No other resin composite that I’ve tried restores posterior cavities as simply and efficiently as CLEARFIL MAJESTY™ ES-2 Universal,” states Troy Schmedding, DDS. “The material eliminates the need for shade selection and a simple monolayer technique is all it takes to get optimal results. It also possesses a wide blending effect and low shrinkage—everything I look for in a composite—that’s why I consider it my ‘go-to’ material for posterior restorations.”
“We are committed to providing dental professionals with innovative solutions that help them provide better care to their patients,” says Dr. Dinesh Sinha, Senior Technical and Marketing Manager at Kuraray Noritake. “CLEARFIL MAJESTY™ ES-2 Universal composite builds upon Kuraray Noritake’s extensive knowledge of nano-hybrid polymer technology to deliver a superior restorative experience for dentists and patients alike.”
