Admira Fusion x-tra (2020 Product Award)

Consultants’ Comments

  • “This material has a chameleon effect and blends well with the adjacent tooth structure.”
  • “Wears similarly to a ceramic restoration.”
  • “I would use this material in all scenarios, including anterior esthetics.”
  • “Adhesion is excellent.”
  • “For a material that is so radiopaque, it is one of the most esthetic direct restorative materials we have at our disposal.”
  • “Great polishability. An extraordinary finish – the cavosurface junction is seamless.”
  • “Easy handling and versatile.”

Clinical Tips

  • “If you’re not layering, use a sectional matrix to establish an acceptable contact.”
  • “It works well when warmed up.”
  • “Pack it in 2 mm increments, but cure it in 4 mm increments.”
  • “I wet the plastic instruments with an unfilled resin to aid in sculpting.”

Description

Admira Fusion x-tra is the first all-ceramic-based, universal bulk fill direct restorative material. It is indicated for Class I, II and IV restorations, core build-ups, and as a base for Class I and II restorations. Additional indications include restorations in primary teeth; the repair of small enamel defects, veneers and provisional restorations; extended fissure sealing; and, splinting anterior teeth. Admira Fusion x-tra is based on nanohybrid ‘organically modified ceramics’ technology (ORMOCER®), and features a silicon oxide matrix and silicon oxide fillers to provide for minimal polymerization shrinkage and low shrinkage stress, increased surface hardness and color stability. Admira Fusion x-tra has a 4 mm depth of cure, a 20-second cure time, and contains a filler content of 84% by weight to provide high wear resistance. It is compatible with all conventional bonding agents, and contains none of the monomers used in traditional composite restorative materials (e.g., BISGMA, UDMA, HEMA, TEGDMA). Admira Fusion x-tra is available in a Universal shade in 0.2 g capsules for direct application, as well as in 3 g syringes.
