ESTELITE ASTERIA introduces a new simplified 2-step layering concept. This comprehensive system is comprised of minimal shades; just 7 Body shades and 5 Enamel shades cover the entire dental shade range.
The Body shades have excellent blending ability with less width of margin bevel thanks to their state-of-the-art optical properties. The Body shades provide some translucency with sufficient opacity to avoid shining hrough without the use of opaque or dentin shades. A1B-A4B shades blend with most natural dentition. The supplemental Body shade BL is recommended for high value bleached teeth and B3B is for yellowish teeth.
The Enamel shades have compatible translucency as a substitute for natural enamel. The primary use of NE shade is for the anterior teeth and OcE is for the posterior occlusal area. The supplemental Body shade TE is for highly translucent anterior teeth, WE is for whitish enamel and YE is for discolored orangish enamel.
The concept of bi-phase stratification is bound to the chromatic properties of Estelite ASTERIA which allow to use just two masses for obtaining highly aesthetic restorations, even in the anterior sectors.
The level of translucence of Body masses responds incredibly well to the thicknesses used, allowing to use just one mass,even in the passing cavities, such as Classes IV.
The enamel masses complete the technique: they are conceived to be used in minimal thicknesses, giving a very natural aspect to the restoration.
Appropriately studied for the posteriors, the OcE enamel has excellent sculpting properties and wonderful aesthetics performances; depending on the thickness and on the anatomical modelling, the result will be a restoration with a tridimensional chromatic effect.
The Supra-Nano inorganic spherical filler contained in Estelite Asteria offers decreased polymerization shrinkage and competitive wear resistance.
The Supra-Nano Spherical filler in ESTELITE ASTERIA facilitates a very smooth surface with
superior gloss that is easily obtained with polishing and is sustained long term.
