Our White Fillings in Falls Church, VA
As a nano-ORMOCER, Admira Fusion’s chemical base is formed by silicon oxide, which makes up both the glass fillers and the ceramic resin matrix—a first of its kind. This “Pure Silicate Technology” offers several remarkable advantages that include up to 50% lower polymerization shrinkage (1.25% by volume), compared to today’s conventional composites, as well as up to 50% lower shrinkage stress. Additional physical properties include extremely high color stability, elevated esthetics in translucency and opacity that allow it to adapt to and blend with surrounding tooth structure, and high surface hardness and edge strength.
The ORMOCER technology used in the manufacturing of Admira Fusion makes it highly biocompatible, as it contains none of today’s classic monomers—such as bisphenol A (BPA), bisphenol A glycidyl methacrylate (bis-GMA), triethyleneglycol-dimethacrylate (TEGDMA), urethane dimethacrylate (UDMA), etc. The light-curing, radiopaque Admira Fusion contains 84% inorganic filler content (by weight), giving it excellent wear resistance, which, combined with Admira Fusion’s particularly high color stability, allows for its universal use in both the anterior and posterior regions. This homogeneous material offers nonsticky handling and is compatible with all conventional bonding materials.
What does this mean:
- BPA, bis-GMA, TEGDMA, UDMA free restorations!
- Optimal biocompatibility
- Less Shrinkage à less sensitivity
- Stain Free! No yellowing or discoloration with coffee/tea
