DenMat's next-generation material creates esthetic, durable, and affordable temporaries.

A premium temporary material at a practical price, Perfectemp10 is the next generation of the popular, award-winning Perfectemp brand. Perfectemp10 acrylic composite is formulated to deliver strong, esthetic, functional, and affordable provisional restorations. DenMat unveiled the stronger, faster-setting Perfectemp10 in August 2013 at the California Dental Association Fall Session in San Francisco.

At Chairside

A true multitasker, Perfectemp10 is indicated for provisional full and partial crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and veneers. It comes in 5 VITA shades A1, A2, A3.5, B1, and BL-2. Perfectemp10 exhibits many properties that simplify and speed the process of temporization. Its 10:1 automix formulation enhances strength, imparts flexibility without brittleness, and speeds set times. Perfectemp10 offers a 4:30 set time and a removal time range between 1:30 and 2:30.

With a minimal oxygen-inhibited layer for optimal handling, Perfectemp10 requires little to no finishing and polishing, yet achieves a natural-looking final luster finish. It is available in either 50-mL dual barrel cartridges or 10-mL dual-barrel syringes to fit any working style.

Perfectemp10 was developed with longevity and durability in mind. It exhibits high compressive (400 MPa) and flexural (120 MPa) strengths combined with only 3.4% shrinkage, ensuring an accurate fit and marginal integrity. Other vital stats include a flexural modulus of 3000 MPa, diametral tensile strength of 70 MPa, and extrusion force (2 mm/min) of 340 N.* In third-party testing, Perfectemp10 outperformed other materials for flexural modulus and strength, compression strength, and diametral tensile strength.*

These proven properties deliver savings in both cost and time involved with replacing failed temporary restorations. With minimal heat generation, there is no danger of pulp damage. Additionally, Perfectemp10 contains no Bisphenol A for biocompatibility and complete patient safety. As mentioned, Perfectemp10's natural high-luster smooth finish, enabled by a uniform level structure, discourages plaque accumulation to promote hygiene.

Perfectemp10 maximizes the effectiveness of the all-important provisionalization process, combining easy handling, optimal physical properties, natural esthetics, and affordability.
