Compatible innovation

"The new technologies are combined in what Septodont calls Nano-Dimer Conversion Technology® in the new universal composite named N'DURANCE®. The major design changes are directed to primarily reducing the polymerization shrinkage. Decreasing shrinkage will decrease the stress on the bonded interface and could increase the prognosis of the bond produced by any of the dentin and enamel bonding agents used by the dentist. While the new resin is extremely biocompatible and the new dimer acid derives from 'green' technology, the new technology is compatible with the conventional composites, bonding agents and curing lights. The new composite has physical and mechanical properties that make it an effective restorative for both anterior and posterior restorations."
