LuxaCrown creates long-lasting semi-permanent crowns directly chairside, saving time and money for both the patient and the practice. The easy-to-make composite material is highly esthetic and shows remarkable longevity of up to 5 years. LuxaCrown is ideal for crown and bridge work, implant procedures where phasing of treatment over several weeks or months is recommended, for geriatric and pediatric patients and for patients who need an immediate, same-day crown. A perfect fit between temporary and permanent restorations, LuxaCrown offers patients an affordable, high-quality restorative option. LuxaCrown also offers clinicians and patients the confidence, natural esthetics and economy while delivering the high strength, efficiency and reliability dental professionals have come to expect from DMG.
Icon Etch Refill etching gel is an extension of the Icon Smooth Surface caries infiltrant, which effectively treats smooth surface white spot lesions. It contains three .45ml syringes of the Icon Etch etching gel and 15 smooth surface tips. The Icon product line was originally developed to facilitate treatment for early proximal caries using a highly fluid resin without the need for drilling. The additional solution for effectively treating cariogenic white spots on smooth surfaces was soon recognized and confirmed by studies.
