Tetric Composite System

Ivoclar Vivadent® Inc.

The New & Improved Tetric EvoFlow completes a well-balanced composite system:

Tetric EvoCeram (2mm layering for anterior or posterior restorations in 22 shades), Tetric EvoCeram Bulk Fill (4mm “bulk” layers in 3 shades) for direct posterior restorations and Tetric EvoFlow for all flowable indications (in 14 shades).

Tetric EvoFlow is indicated for all flowable indications. The viscosity is “flowable when desired and stable as required”, meaning it can be used effectively as a liner, but is also non-slumping in Class III and Class V restorations. Ivoclar Vivadent has expanded the shade range now offering three levels of translucency. The dentin shades (A2 Dentin, A3.5 Dentin, and B2 Dentin) are ideal when there is a need to mask slight discoloration in posterior preparations. The Cannula tips have been redesigned, decreasing the diameter to an extra-fine .9mm providing more precise placement.

Tetric EvoCeram resolves many issues dentists typically encounter with conventional composite materials, including their tendency to polymerize before restorations are fully contoured. A special additive incorporated into the photo-initiator system allows Tetric EvoCeram to be less reactive to ambient light while remaining highly reactive to curing lights, so the material won't cure until after placement, and will polymerize quickly once exposed to a curing light.

Tetric EvoCeram Bulk Fill is the first posterior composite with Ivocerin, a patented photo-initiator that is more reactive to curing than conventional initiators resulting in a deeper, more efficient cure. Tetric EvoCeram Bulk Fill now features: Single-layer placement up to 4mm for faster procedures, Low shrinkage and low shrinkage stress for superior margins, Nano-filler technology for improved strength, high-gloss polish and low wear.
