Renamel Nano is color-coded to the Renamel Restorative System for use in multi-layer, build-up techniques.
According to Cosmedent, Renamel Nano is a true universal product. It can be used in Class I through Class V restorations including diastema closure, full color change veneers, building up of incisal edges, and for developing canine rise.
It comes in 12 shades (A1, A2, A3, A3.5, B-Zero, B1, C3, D2, D3, SB3, light incisal, and medium incisal) in either 0.25 g single use compules or 5 g syringes. Renamel Nano can be combined with Cosmedent’s other product, Renamel Microfill, but it is designed to be used alone.
The manufacturer of Renamel Nano states that the material polishes to a high luster. When the 6 dentists who evaluated Renamel Nano were asked to rate the polishability of the material, 100% of them rated it as excellent. One evaluator summed it up by saying that the polishability is “Fantastic!”
Match to Tooth Structure
According to information provided by the manufacturer, the translucency of Renamel Nano allows it to blend well to tooth structure without compromising the opacity of the natural dentition. The evaluators were first asked how important match to tooth structure is when choosing a composite. Four evaluators said this criteria is very important and 2 said it is important. They were then asked to rate the match to tooth structure of this nano composite. Five evaluators rated Renamel Nano as excellent for match to tooth structure and 1 rated it as very good. One evaluator commented that he “really enjoyed the opacity of the body composite for those big fractures.” Another said, “Excellent match to tooth structure.”
Cosmedent describes Renamel Nano as a “true universal.” The manufacturer claims that the material can be used successfully in Class I through V restorations for both anterior and posterior restorations.
The dentist evaluators were asked about the importance of esthetics when choosing a new composite. Four said esthetics are very important and 2 said they are important. When they were then asked to rate the esthetics of Renamel Nano, 5 rated the product as excellent and 1 rated it as very good. One of the dentists described the esthetics as “very good. One of the best I’ve seen.”
According to Cosmedent, Renamel Nano feathers nicely along the margins. The manufacturer also says that the combination of translucency and fluorescence in this product causes the composite/enamel border to disappear when the material is polished. When the evaluators were asked to rate this nanocomposite on margination, 4 rated it excellent and 2 rated it very good to good. One evaluator commented that the product “blended nicely with enamel.”
Renamel Nano is 80% filled and, according to Cosmedent, does not slump when handling because of ultrasmall nanofillers. These small fillers increase filler loading, which adds strength. Cosmedent says that the product is easy to place and manipulate, even when carving detailed anatomy. In addition, the sculptability of the material reduces the amount of time needed during finishing.
When the evaluators were asked to rate the sculptability of Renamel Nano, 3 rated it as excellent, 2 rated it as very good, and 1 rated it as good. One evaluator said that he was “able to sculpt with the material very well.” Some of the evaluators did note that they found the material to be sticky.
At the end of the evaluation, the evaluators were asked to give their overall satisfaction rating for Renamel Nano. Four of the evaluators rated it excellent and 2 rated it good. One evaluator said, “I am very impressed with the material.”
Breakthrough Light-Cured Nanofill Composite
Renamel Nano applies quickly and easily and offers a much better value per gram than other leading nanofill composites.
Renamel Nano has been reformulated to offer improved handling capabilities. At 82% filler content, Renamel Nano is the most filled universal composite on the market, offering superior wear resistance and the highest esthetic properties. Renamel Nano was designed by Cosmedent’s award-winning team of polymer chemists for dentists who want to work with a single composite in both the anterior and posterior but do not want to compromise on the end esthetic result. Renamel Nano is easy to place and manipulate, especially when carving finely detailed anatomy, without the risk of pullback or slumping. Along the margins, Renamel Nano feathers easily, and the combination of ideal translucency and fluorescence means the composite/ enamel interface disappears when polished.
Indications for use include Class I through Class V restorations, diastema closure, full color change veneers, building up incisal edges, developing canine rise, and all types of esthetic restorations both anterior and posterior. Ideally matched to the Vita shade guide, Renamel Nano is available in 12 esthetic shades—A1, A2, A3, A3.5, B-Zero, B1, C3, D2, D3, SB3, Light Incisal, and Medium Incisal. Choose between 5 g syringes or 0.25 g compules. Jason Schwartz
