• Core build-ups
• Integral post and core procedures
• Cementation of posts
• Repairing and preventing split roots
• Esthetic posterior restorations
• Dual-cure Formula
• Auto-mixing syringe delivery
• Excellent handling characteristics
• Enamel and White shades
• Assures complete polymerization in all situations.
• Eliminates hand mixing; less waste than cartridge/gun systems.
• Stackable viscosity and syringes easily; cuts like dentin.
• Enamel shade enhances the esthetics of translucent restorations.
White shade is easily distinguished from tooth structure.
• Easily distinguishable in radiographs.
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 toothcolored 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.
