COLTENE’s AFFINIS Black Edition impression material: “The best impressions the lab had seen”

Dr Mahesh Vasireddy is principal dentist at York Dental Practice. He is an experienced dental surgeon, with a special interest in endodontics and cosmetic dentistry. Mahesh believes in providing the highest standard of ethical dentistry and putting his patients first.

Here, he discusses why he uses COLTENE’s AFFINIS™ Black Edition impression material: “I’ve sent my impressions taken with AFFINIS to several of my labs – one said they were the best they’d ever seen! The main reason is the black and gold colour combination, so any drag or voids can be picked up straight away, with clear margins.

“I started using AFFINIS Black Edition heavy body, with AFFINIS Precious regular body a couple of years ago. It gives extremely accurate impressions, without distortion and voids.

“These are fantastic impressions of a full arch prep or a single unit, with excellent colour contrast, that are easy to remove, meaning a comfortable experience for my patients.”
