PRODUCTS TO SEE AT GNY
Interview with Brendan Steidle, product marketing manager,
Dentists have been placing composite restorations for a
very long time, yet we are always seeking a composite
restorative system that is strong and beautiful. Can you
review the benefits of your composite system?
G-aenial Sculpt is a condensable, universal composite. It offers the
beauty and polishability that dentists need for an anterior composite,
along with the strength and wear-resistance that is necessary for
posterior composite. It is important to consider using bonding agents
that are designed to be compatible with your direct restorations. They
should not negatively impact the esthetics of your anterior composites
and should enhance the longevity of restorations. G-Premio Bond has
been designed to complement the physical properties and characteristics of G-aenial Sculpt.
How does G-aenial Sculpt differ from G-aenial Universal Flo?
G-aenial Sculpt is a packable composite that offers the same high-density and uniform-dispersion nano-filler technology found in G-aenial
Universal Flo, an injectable composite restorative material. G-aenial
Sculpt is strong, wear-resistant, and radiopaque, while offering the
optimal esthetics, chameleon effect, and self-shining properties. It can
be sculpted, and it will not slump or drift after placement. It is available
in 17 shades and can be delivered in a syringe or a unitip.
What features make G-Premio Bond unique?
G-Premio Bond is an eighth-generation bonding agent that offers versatility of use with total, selective, and self-etch techniques. It contains
4-META and MDP for bonding to preparations with no compromises.
It can be used universally for direct and indirect restorations, repairing indirect restorations, or for dentinal hypersensitivity. It has a low
film thickness ( 3 microns!), and will not pool into the corners of the

In addition, G-Premio Bond offers optimal
color stability and will not change the appearance of your direct or indirect restorations. G-Premio Bond is available in single-dose packs
or as a new silicone cover to allow for more
precise drop dispensing and to minimize
air contamination and material waste. The
properties of G-Premio Bond will be the same
whether you are applying the first or the last
drop from the bottle.
What feedback are you getting from
clinicians who have used G-aenial
Sculpt with G-Premio Bond?
Clinicians appreciate the balance of excellent handling characteristics, esthetics, wear-resistance, and radiopacity of G-aenial Sculpt.
G-Premio Bond has such a low film thickness that it does not create the “voids” that
many dentists see in radiographs between
their restorations and the underlying tooth
structure. This allows them to monitor restorations for breakdown and secondary caries
with much more accuracy.
For highly cosmetic cases, dentists appreciate the chameleon effect that G-aenial Sculpt
offers, and find that the margin between restorative material and tooth structure is nearly
indistinguishable. The self-polishing property
of this material makes restorations look more
beautiful over time.
