” The chameleon-like properties of Estelite Asteria permitted to obtain excellent mimetism of the additive procedures on the two incisors; in fact, the optimum colour transition was obtained by mainly using one single body mass. Then small quantities of enamel mass permitted to obtain a more natural and esthetic reconstructed incisal margin of teeth 11 and 12. An enamel mass (Estelite Asteria NE) was also used to cement the E-max Maryland bridge; the new Tokuyama composite has truly excellent consistency and can also be used in the adhesive cementation of indirect composite or ceramic restorations, with no need to pre-heat it. ”
