Riva Light Cure HV combines the best of glass ionomer cements and composites into one material.
Riva Light Cure HV is a high-viscosity resin-reinforced glass ionomer restorative cement from SDI (North America). According to the manufacturer, Riva Light Cure HV combines the fluoride release and strong chemical bond of glass ionomers with the esthetics of composites. SDI also describes the marerial as having excellent handling properties so that it is very sculptable and does not stick to instruments. In addition, Riva Light Cure HV uses SDI's proprietary ionglass filler, which is a radiopaque, high ion releasing, bioactive glass.
