Designed to provide the strength, esthetics and durability of an indirect restoration, Admira Fusion from VOCO is a universal direct restorative material featuring nano-ORMOCER (Organic Modified CERamic) technologies.
The nano-ORMOCER technologies combine nano-hybrid technology with silicon oxide used for both the glass fillers as well as the ceramic resin matrix, according to a press release. This allows the Admira Fusion material to work with just 1.25 percent polymerization shrinkage by volume—up to half the polymerization shrinkage of some dental composites—while also cutting shrinkage stress by as much as 50 percent. The material also provides esthetic properties such as high color stability, optimal translucency and opacity, and high surface hardness.
The light-curing, radiopaque material is highly biocompatible, does not include commonly used monomers such as BisGMA, and its 84 percent by weight inorganic filler content helps provide excellent wear resistance. It is compatible with conventional bonding materials, and is suited for use in both the anterior and posterior regions.
