Composite Restorations

We fabricate indirect composite restorations for crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays. Our material of choice, Gradia, is stacked in a conventional manner, using both dentin and enamel powders for an esthetic, true-to-life appearance. Gradia, by GC America, has unsurpassed durability, natural opalescence, and excellent lifelike esthetics, which are the result of an innovative hybrid MFR formulation. The unique chemistry of the composite couples a micro-fine ceramic/pre-polymer filler with a urethane dimethacrylate matrix to produce a superior ceramic composite with exceptionally high strength, wear resistance and superior polishability. It is biocompatible and kind to opposing teeth.

  • GRADIA offers outstanding esthetics - true to life color and translucency for beautiful, natural looking restorations full of vitality.
  • Level of translucency and light transmission similar to natural dentition. Restorations are bright, opalescent and have a warm looking appearance.
  • Builds up like porcelain
  • Superior strength and beauty are superior to conventional hard resins.
  • GRADIA restorations can be permanently placed with Fuji PLUS, Fuji CEM or resin cement with sufficiently retentive preparations. Minimally retentive crown preparations and veneers require a resin cement.

 

It is recommended that composite only be used when in occlusal contact with another resin restoration, natural tooth structure, or resin partial/denture teeth. Composite is not recommended when the opposing dentition is a crown or porcelain denture tooth.
