Low-viscosity core build-up material

BISCO has long prided itself on its ability to bring science to the art of dentistry through its wide range of versatile products that are revolutionizing dental offices around the world. BISCO is proud to introduce Core-Flo™ DC Lite, a dual-cured, radiopaque, fluoride-containing core material. Core-Flo DC Lite is a brand extension of BISCO’s tried and true stackable core material Core-Flo DC.

Core-Flo DC Lite is a self-leveling, low-viscosity material, perfect for cases where a matrix band may be required, lower viscosity is desired, or initial subgingival margins are present and not visible (eg, fractured cusp). Core-Flo DC Lite’s compressive and flexural strength offers the clinician reliability and durability when fabricating direct restorations.

Core-Flo DC Lite is indicated for core build-up, post cementation, and as a dentin replacement material and is available intwo esthetic shades: Natural/A1 andOpaque White.

Multiple Indications

Core-Flo DC Lite is an excellent choice for post cementation. The ability to prepare a post space, place a bonding agent, and complete the core at the same time provides great office efficiency and minimal inventory. In addition, Core-Flo DC Lite can be used as a dentin substitute in large direct composite restorations, achieving excellent clinical results with minimal wear, fracture, or patient sensitivity. Dual-cure chemistry allows for bulk placement without the worry of adequate curing light penetration or voids when placing multiple layers.

The Major Benefits of Core-Flo DC Lite

Core-Flo DC Lite’s optimal self-leveling viscosity allows for excellent adaptation, resulting in gap-free margins when replacing natural dentition with a direct core build-up. Its high strength and low water sorption provides a strong foundation for both crowns and direct restoratives. The material is easy to prepare and cuts like dentin. Core-Flo DC Lite’s void-free flow makes it an ideal material to use for post cementation.

Universal Primer

Core-Flo DC Lite is available with Universal Primer™, a low-film thickness, dual-cured adhesive and primer that is designed for the dentist who may prefer not to light cure the adhesive layer under indirect restorations. The combination of Universal Primer and Core-Flo DC Lite offers high bond strengths to dentin, enamel and fiber posts.
