CORE BUILD UP
Core Paste XP Syringe has the same strength and excellent handling characteristics of original Core Paste, with over 29 years of clinical success. The auto-mixing syringe is easy to use and creates up to 60% less waste than cartridge systems that require a dispensing gun. The stackable viscosity allows you to build up without a matrix or core form and the dual-cure formula gives you the confidence of a self-cure with the option of light-curing to speed the procedure.
Core Paste XP Syringe is a creamy, radiopaque paste developed specifically for high-strength, reliable, core build-ups. When there is insufficient tooth structure available for a fixed prosthesis, Core Paste XP Syringe provides the added strength and stability needed for long-term clinical success.
Core Paste XP Syringe is available in Enamel and White, and White with Fluoride. Core Paste XP Syringe is also available with fluoride for added protection.
"I have used a few of these other 'highly-rated' popular core materials you see advertised and let me tell you, Core Paste is the best material on the market." -Dr. George Diaz, Long Beach, CA
"Core Paste is in a league of its own for core build-ups!"
Integral post and core procedures

The true measure of value is reliability
Remove all decay and make the necessary preparation for the core build-up.
Remove any eugenol or root canal sealer contaminant with Dry Bond from the preparation.
Rinse and air dry.
Etch the tooth with Etch’N’Seal, Den-Mat’s 37% Phosphoric Acid medium viscosity etchant.
Once you have completely rinsed and dried the echant from the preparation, apply 3-5 coats of Tenure MPB bonding agent to the preparation.
NOTE: See the Tenure Product Page for complete instructions.
Align the straight edge of the auto mixing housing with the small flange
Push the mixing tip onto the syringe
Attach the intraoral tip firmly (If necessary)
Preparation of the Auto-Mix Syringe
NOTE: You must extrude a pea-sized amount of material after placing the mixing tip on the syringe - discard this material. This is crucial to ensure that Infinity Syringable sets properly. Repeat this step each time a mixing tip is placed on the syringe.
Syringe the Core Paste directly into the preparation
NOTE: Please see instructions available on the website for the type of Core Paste delivery system that you have for correct material preparation instructions.
Insert the Core Post.
NOTE: Carbon fiber posts are recommended for posterior restorations given their increased strength, and glass fiber posts are recommended for anterior restorations given their increased esthetics.
Light cure the Core Paste.
Use a 557 carbide burr to remove the post at the surface of the core build-up.
Use a crown preparation diamond burr to finish the core build-up.

How do I know if the product is still good / what is the expiration date?
The expiration date is 18 months from the date of purchase. If you do not know when the product was purchased, you can contact your Den-Mat account representative and they will be able to let you know when you purchased the product. You can also use one of the light cure test rings provided with the product to ensure that it will still polymerize. Simply syringe the product into the test ring until it is flush with the top of the ring. Light cure for the recommended time for your type of light. Flip the test ring over and using a scaling instrument, scratch the composite to see if it has fully polymerized.
Will my bonding agent work with Core Paste?
There are bonding agents on the market that do not work with self-cure composites. Contact your bonding agent’s manufacturer if you are uncertain if the product is compatible with self-cure composites. Tenure is the best bonding agent to use with Core Paste due to years of clinical success. Tenure was specially developed to give you the strongest bond when using Core Paste. Tenure will also be compatible with any light, self, or dual-curing materials in your office, and so would be a great addition to your practice.
What is the advantage to using Core Paste over amalgam?
Amalgam presents a mercury hazard. Additionally, the color is not esthetic. It requires two office visits and does not bond to the tooth. With composite materials, a one-visit build-up can be achieved. Additionally, it bonds to the tooth, is ready to prepare in 5-10 minutes, can be tooth colored, cuts like dentin, can be applied freehand or matrix/core form, and is less likely to cause root fracture.
What is Core Paste and what delivery systems are available?
Core Paste is a composite resin system that has high compressive strength and simple placement characteristics. It is available in jars, syringeable (auto-mixing, dual-barrel syringes used with a dispensing gun), and XP a self-contained, dual barrel mixing syringe (no gun required). All of these delivery systems are a paste/paste formulation.
What is the main benefit of Core Paste XP?
Core Paste XP makes the procedure Faster, Easier and Better. The stackable viscosity eliminates the need for matrix or core forms. It is also a dual-cure material available in white and enamel shades. It results in 60% less waste than cartridge systems and requires no mixing, no mess.
What does the phrase "cuts like dentin" mean?
The diamond won’t jack-rabbit at the transition from tooth to core, causing ditching or an irregular surface.
Why use Core-Posts?
The Core-Post was designed to flex with teeth under normal conditions eliminating tooth stress and fractures that can occur with a standard metal post.
How do I know when to use the carbon fiber posts versus the glass fiber posts?
Select glass-fiber posts for anterior teeth where esthetics are paramount and a tooth-colored core is needed. The low modulus of elasticity is similar to dentin and allows for flexure without root fracture. Carbon-fiber posts have an increased strength and modulus of elasticity that allow their use in select posterior as well as anterior cases.
