DMG’s new Luxacrown enables simple, quick and cost-effective chairside fabrication of long-lasting crowns.
The result is a precision-fit, aesthetic and long-lasting restoration which can be worn for up to five years.
In addition to excellent flexural strength, it also possesses outstanding fracture toughness which ensures long-term stability of semi-permanent restorations.
Very hard (Barcol hardness 54), in-vitro studies have confirmed its high mechanical strength.
Standardised chewing and wear simulations of masticatory behaviour with artificial aging verified a lifespan of up to five years for Luxacrown, in vitro study of Luxacrown; N. Albrecht, S. Duy, Germany , FEB 2016.
Its special indication as a semi-permanent crown and bridge material with outstanding wear allows for a wide range of indications.
It can be used to protect the remaining tooth as well as to restore the anatomical form and masticatory function.
Luxacrown is recommended, too, if long-term observation of treatment success is necessary, when bridging the gap for healing phases and in difficult restoration situations.
DMG has also recently launched a new temporary luting cement which stands out by blending in.
Tempocemid is a translucent, dual-cure composite luting cement for temporary luting of all kinds of temporary restorations.
Invisible, but detectable it can be used for temporary and semi-permanent luting of temporary crowns, bridges, inlays and onlays; and temporary luting of temporary veneers. It is also ideal for luting implant-borne restorations.
