Prevent shade remakes - saving time and money!
When placing LUMINEERS, you can be assured of a perfect match to adjacent teeth or existing restorations when you use the Cerinate Shade Modification System II. The Cerinate Shade Modification System II is the only resin color modifier and opaquer system available that allows for total color, translucency and opacity control of porcelain and composite restorations. By using these shade modifiers, you can be assured of success when you need to enhance your porcelain veneers and composites to create a polychromatic appearance to your restorations.
The Cerinate Shade Modification System II can be used alone or mixed with a light-cure composite resin or resin cement to modify a tint. The tints can be successfully layered. Tooth discolorations are easily masked with the light-cure or dual-cure, patented, masking agent TetraPaque (included in the kit).
In studies, TetraPaque has been shown to have the maximum opacity with minimal thickness to cover dark stains, tetracycline discoloration, white spots, fluorosis and endodontic staining.
When a dual-cured material is needed, as with crowns and inlay/onlays, the dual-cure initiator is mixed with the light-curing component. Its unlimited depth of cure assures complete curing.
