Consultants’ Comments

  • “It performed well – good flowability, stackability and it did not slump.”“The “white” and “blue” are easy to distinguish. It’s easy to gauge when shaping.”
  • “I was able to cut close to pins without any fracturing of the material.”
  • “The cured finish prior to trimming seems quite smooth and dense – a pleasure to use.”
  • “Simple to use and it appears to have a lower contact angle than other core materials.”
  • “One of the best materials I have ever used. The kit had everything.”
  • “The intraoral tip was a little big for some spaces – a smaller, longer one would be useful.”
  • “We had to cure in layers. I didn’t like that the adhesive is a 2-step.”
  • “Beautiful handling properties, just the right viscosity.  Adapts well to undercuts.”

Clinical Tips

  • Take your time when placing this material and use even, slow pressure.
  • Try the blue color. It’s great if the tooth ever needs a root canal retreat or crown replacement. The endodontist will thank you! Just don’t use it under an IPS e.max crown, the color will show.
  • We used it for conventional cores and emergency “build-up and recementing” of crowns and bridges when patients couldn’t afford or stay for definitive treatment – very impressive.
  • Give it an extra minute to start cutting it after curing this material.
  • Dispensing gun is available for easier extrusion.
  • Endo mixing tips are available for smaller spaces.

Evaluation Highlights

  • was evaluated by 30 consultants, and used 448 times in total.

Unique Features

  • Three different shades (yellow (tooth), blue, white)
  • Sets hard, cuts like dentin.
  • High bond strength to enamel, dentin and posts.
  • Medium viscosity allows for maximum control during application, and stackability.


  • Core build-ups
