SOUTH BEND, Ind., March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Heraeus Kulzer, LLC, the leader in advancing dental esthetics and overall dental wellbeing, announced today that as a member of the Venus brand of low stress composites, Venus® Bulk Fill will now be available in syringes this March. The precise syringe delivery of Venus Bulk Fill will provide dentists with an easier, faster restorative solution that is more cost effective per restoration than the traditional incremental layering technique.
Venus® Bulk Fill is used for bulk filling Class I and II restorations in 4mm increments. In an advanced review, REALITY RESEARCH LAB states that Venus Bulk Fill achieved an 85.3% cure goal at the bottom of proximal box (5.2% better than a competitive bulk fill composite) and had significantly lower shrinkage stress than that of conventional flowables.
"The self-adapting handling properties of Venus Bulk Fill provide the ideal flowability into all cavo-surfaces eliminating the chance for voids that can occur with traditional composites and flowables especially at the most critical area when dealing with Class II type restorations -- the gingival box," says Andrew Shannon, DDS.
Venus Bulk Fill Syringe will be available through distributors starting in March. The inherent value of this system is that it was designed with the dentist in mind: "Venus Bulk Fill combines the benefits of time savings and ease of use, but most importantly empowers dentists to provide their patients with a low stress restoration that produces the ultimate in clinical success – a highly esthetic, long lasting restoration," adds Jennifer Kalinowski, Sr. Product Manager for Heraeus.
