Buffered, safe porcelain etching
PorceLock® is the perfect companion for porcelain and crown and bridge repair. PorceLock® is a buffered 2.5% hydrofluoric acid gel that is both safe and effective for intraoral and extraoral use.
PorceLock® creates bond strengths three to five times greater than treatments using silane alone. It achieves bond strengths approaching those of etched enamel after a 3-5 minute treatment. For repair of porcelain surfaces, the use of PorceLock® and Cerinate Prime® with Ultra-Bond® allows you to achieve strong and reliable intraoral bonds. PorceLock’s® gel viscosity and needle tip dispensing allows you to place the gel only where you want it.
Buffered, safe porcelain etching.
Sandblast (microetch) to roughen the porcelain surface.
Apply Revitalize Porcelain Etchant to the porcelain surface for 2-3 minutes. Then rinse and dry.
Apply Porcelain Conditioner to the porcelain surface for 30 seconds, then rinse and dry. Apply Cerinate Prime® and gently air dry.
Mix together equal portions of Tenure A and B and apply 3-5 coats.
Apply Revitalize Resin Cement inside LUMINEERS® and place LUMINEERS® on the tooth surface.
Light cure for 1-2 seconds using the Ceri-Taper 2 mm or 4 mm tacking tip and the Sapphire® Plasma Arc Curing Light. Remove excess Revitalize Resin Cement from the margins by using a soft brush coated with Tenure S. Using a 9 mm tip and the Sapphire PAC Light, completely cure all LUMINEERS®, exposing each surface for 5 seconds.
Finishing – Adjust the occlusion and perform a routine finish on the margins.
What is the primary use of Porcelock®?
PorceLock® is a porcelain etchant. PorceLock® is a buffered 2.5% hydrofluoric acid gel that is safe and effective for intraoral and extraoral use. It is the perfect companion for porcelain crown and bridge repair.
How effective is PorceLock®?
Using PorceLock® creates bond strengths three to five times greater than treatments using silane alone. It achieves bond strengths approaching those of etched enamel after a 3-5 minute treatment.
My lab work comes back pre-etched from the Cerinate® Smile Design Studios. Why would I need Porcelock®?
PorceLock® is needed in any porcelain repair procedure, and also would be used in re-seating a unit that has de-bonded. PorceLock® is also required when bonding porcelain-to-porcelain.
