Announcing the newest COMPONEER innovation: COMPONEER CLASS V
Cervical defects are typically treated using adhesive bonding and composite. The unique new approach is to place COMPONEER CLASS V prefabricated, polymerized shells, made from highly filled, radiopaque nano-hybrid composite based on Coltene’s highly rated Synergy D6 system.
This facial anatomic template facilitates the direct treatment of cervical lesions with a long lasting aesthetic solution offering easier and safer application with improved marginal adaptation and optimized shrinkage management at the margins. COMPONEER prefabricated composite shells offer the added benefits of composite adjustment and finishing at placement and repairability later if needed.
Class V fillings are quite common in dental practice, particularly with adults. In at least one study, almost 80% of the patients aged 46-50 years needed at least one Class V treatment. One of the main causes for Class V lesions is bruxism, which can be related to stress, and the most affected teeth are the first and second premolars.
Once again, Coltene’s COMPONEER system brings you and your patients affordable innovation.
