Biocompatible Nano-ORMOCER® Direct Bulk Fill Restorative
The World’s First ALL CERAMIC-based Direct Bulk-fill Restorative
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% lower polymerization shrinkage (1.25% by volume) than today’s conventional composites, as well as up to 50% lower shrinkage stress; two key physical properties as it relates to bulk-fill restoratives. Admira Fusion x-tra has a 4mm depth of cure 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.
