The compressive strength and the flexural strength of OMNICHROMA are of average or higher levels among commercially available resin composites, ensuring clinically acceptable results.
OMNICHROMA exhibits an excellent balance between volume loss of the composite resin and wear of the human tooth. It is a composite resin that is less likely to abrade opposing teeth while not easily becoming abraded itself.
Glossiness - In polishability tests, OMNICHROMA is shown to produce extremely high gloss.
Stain Resistance - The extent of staining for OMNICHROMA was relatively low among commercially available resin composites when immersed in coffee for 24 hours at 80Â°C. Therefore, OMNICHROMA will resist staining for the life of the restoration.
Structural ColorStructural color occurs when different wavelengths of light are amplified or weakened by the structure of a material itself, expressing colors other than what the material may actually be. From morpho butterflies to peacocks, some of the rarest and most beautiful colors in nature are the result of structural color.
Smart Chromatic TechnologyThrough the utilization of Tokuyama's spherical fillers and Smart Chromatic Technology, OMNICHROMA is the first use of structural color in composite dentistry.OMNICHROMA's structural color mechanism is made possible by the precise shape and size of the filler within the composite. The 260nm identical spherical fillers of OMNICHROMA are the perfect size and shape to produce the effects of structural color to match the surrounding tooth color.
OMNICHROMA Fillers generate red-to-yellow structural color as ambient light passes through the composite, without the need of added pigments and dyes. The red-to-yellow color combines with the reflected color of the patient's surrounding dentition, creating the perfect match from A1 to D4 and beyond.
In large Class III and IV cases, OMNICHROMA may experience shade-matching interference due to a lack of surrounding dentition. OMNICHROMA BLOCKER is a supplementary material to be used in conjunction with OMNICHROMA as a lingual layer to prevent shade-matching interference in these cases. OMNICHROMA BLOCKER can also be used to mask slight staining, or to reconstruct a highly opaque tooth.
