Let’s face it: Any product that offers easy, thorough cleanup in on point with today’s consumer. This is true whether you’re using a paper towel to clean up a spilled beverage or, in the case of a dentist, removing excess cement from crown placement. 

In the dental profession, easy cleanup is more than a “nice-to-have” feature; it’s crucial to success. According to a 2015 Dental Omnibus report by The Key Group, 21% of crown failures are due to secondary caries, due in part, to excess resin cement. Nearly all dentists (97%)  agree that cleaning up excess cement is important to ensure health of the gingiva, according to a study published in the Journal of Dentistry.

In light of these findings, DENTSPLY Sirona has introduced a new Calibra family of definitive cements, designed for simplified cleanup of excess cement. Calibra cements have a tack cure initiation phase of up to 10 seconds, eliminating the stress of over-curing.  They also offer an extended 45-second gel phase window, allowing the dentist to thoroughly remove excess cement without rushing.

Dentists also want to choose the ideal cement for every restorative procedure, so having 3 options makes it easier:
1. Calibra Universal - The universal choice for nearly any indication with no separate bonding agent.
2. Calibra Ceram – A maximum-strength adhesive cement with immediate and long-term bonding for all-ceramics and CAD/CAM restorations.
3. Calibra Veneer – A veneer cement with a thixotropic nature for favorable handling and ShadeStable technology to prevent color shift over time.
