Venus Temp 2
Venus Temp 2 Provisional Material
Venus Temp 2 provides the ideal combination of strength, hardness, flexibility, and esthetics.
When the 15 dentists who evaluated Venus Temp 2 were asked for their overall impressions of the provisional material, a dentist who said he would definitely purchase it and recommend it to colleagues called it 'as good a temporary material as I have used.'
Another evaluator, who rated all features as excellent, said it 'out-performed all the other bisacryl temporary materials we've used in accuracy of fit, strength, and ease of trimming!'
It's the unique formula of Heraeus Kulzer's Venus Temp 2 that provides the ideal combination of strength, hardness, and flexibility for temporary restorations that are both durable and esthetically pleasing.
Manufacturer Description: Venus Temp 2 is formulated to be optimally flowable for easy handling and application.
Evaluator Feedback: 'Very easy to handle, clear instructions, excellent working time,' is how 1 dentist responded when asked to share what he liked most about the material. 'I love the ease of use. The gun makes it easy to dispense and it sets up quickly and trims very easily,' noted a dentist who rated all features as excellent and called the material 'a great product.'
When asked what they'd like to see improved, a few evaluators commented on consistency, including one who said, 'sometimes I feel it's too rigid.' Fourteen of the 15 evaluators rated handling and ease of use as excellent or very good.
Manufacturer Description: Venus Temp 2's nanoparticle formula produces a brilliant, esthetic gloss finish.
Evaluator Feedback: Esthetics was identified by all 15 evaluators as very important or important when selecting a temporary crown and bridge material. With comments such as, 'patients love the esthetics,' and, 'polished well with very minimal shade change,' all 15 evaluators rated both esthetics and polishability/trimming as excellent, very good, or good. 'Your material didn't require any polishing (except for fit), even for our anterior cases,' said dentist in practice for 29 years. One dentist noted that 'it needs to be more radiolucent.'
Manufacturer Description: Venus Temp 2 combines higher barcol hardness, low flexural modulus, and high flexural strength, providing the ideal flexibility and strength for long-span bridges. The higher barcol hardness produces stronger restorations, while the lower flexural modulus yields a higher degree of flexibility to reduce the chance of fracture under stress.
Evaluator Feedback: Thirteen evaluators rated strength/hardness as excellent or very good. When asked what they liked most about the material, several evaluators cited this feature, with responses such as, 'dimensional stability/lack of shrinkage,' and, 'strength and hardness.' A dentist who noted that, 'this product was a lot stronger than the other two materials I use,' and described it as 'great on posterior molars and long-span provisional,' went on to say, 'The thing I loved (the strength) proved to be the most challenging. It's so strong that it's tough to trim and sets very rigid for the initial try in back in the teeth.' One evaluator, who said the material was 'easy to use and didn't shrink much,' reported that he 'used it on a 4-unit bridge and it broke.'
Eighty percent of the evaluators said they would definitely or probably purchase Venus Temp 2 and 93% said they would definitely or probably recommend it to their colleagues. 'I liked the durability, strength, and esthetics,' said a Texas dentist who called it a 'great product overall,' and noted, 'I'm planning to purchase Venus Temp 2 when needed for my next order.' A Wisconsin dentist who rated all features as excellent said, 'I let my assistant do the temps and she loves using it! After my second assistant started using it, he asked me what we should do with the other temp material we have.' All 15 evaluators rated their overall satisfaction with the material as excellent, very good, or good.

Before her last dentist appointment, my daughter actually told me “I can’t wait to go to the dentist!” I had to feel her forehead to make sure she wasn’t running a fever. When faced with an unpleasant experience, people often joke that “this is about as much fun as having a tooth pulled.” Here are some ideas on how you can...Read More
