Optident expands its White Dental Beauty portfolio with the CompoSite system
Today (8th April) Optident announces the launch of the professional CompoSite system, as part of its White Dental Beauty portfolio. With accreditation and education by StyleItaliano, CompoSite provides a dedicated restorative system, including a bulk-fill and intelligent flowable composite.
Tim Butterfield, Managing Director of Optident, explained: “Comprising nine syringes in total, CompoSite was born from the #whiteology vision that dentists should be able to offer their patients the smile they deserve, using minimally invasive, predictable and repeatable results.
“Driven by patient demand for a brighter, whiter smile, CompoSite offers five shades of white, in addition to two flowables, an enamel and a posterior.”
The CompoSite system consists of the following:
Si0, Si0.5, Si1, Si2 & Si3 – Known as the ‘five shades of white’, these shades are designed for whitening and restorative cases, assisting with the perfect colour match for bleached or naturally white teeth. These multi-functional shades can be used for mono layering in full direct veneer cases, or in conjunction with the Enamel for a two-layer technique.
SiM & SiMP – These two flowable shades each provide different benefits. SiM uses an opaque light resin, instantly camouflaging the shade of the tooth and providing a neutral base for immediate restorative work. SiMP is a multipurpose flowable, which can be used as a base/liner and to cement veneers or overlays.
SiE – This enamel shade has been designed to blend flawlessly with all the Si universal shades, featuring a calibrated translucency. It is ideal for a two-layer technique and for simply characterising the incisal edge.
SiP – This posterior bulk fill has a high filler content and is designed specifically to work easily with the ‘Fast Modelling Technique’, minimising shrinkage or fracture.
In a statement Optident claims that the CompoSite colour palette: “Allows the dentist to specifically tailor the shade of white to the patients' needs and produces a fine balance of brightness ideal for any smile transformation, especially when using a direct veneer technique”.
The CompoSite toolkit is completed with special flowable shades, utilising the “Camouflage Technique”, masking any discolouration and providing a neutral base.
Tim Butterfield concludes: “CompoSite has been developed with optimum viscosity, for excellent handling and a non-sticky consistency making it ideal for modelling and shaping. The system offers high polishability, with natural fluorescence and high colour stability resulting in beautiful long-term aesthetics.
“Boasting an 8-minute working time, the posterior bulk fill CompoSite has a high filler content of 80% and the ISO filler is wear-resistant with low shrinkage when light cured. This is particularly helpful when adopting the Fast Modelling Technique (FMT) which simplifies occlusal anatomy substantially.”
In addition to CompoSite, White Dental Beauty offers four professional whitening systems, tailored to suit individual patients’ needs. All White Dental Beauty’s products are accredited by the StyleItaliano group and are exclusively available through Optident in the United Kingdom.
