Heraeus Launches Remarkably Smooth Venus® Pearl Composite

SOUTH BEND, Ind., May 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Heraeus Kulzer, LLC, the worldwide leader in dental esthetics, today announced that it has launched a new light curing, radio-opaque nano hybrid composite - Venus® Pearl.  Venus Pearl is indicated for adhesively bonded, tooth-colored restorations in the anterior and posterior regions. Due to its remarkably soft consistency, this new universal composite delivers outstanding handling while still providing the minimal shrinkage stress and high flexural strength for which the Venus family of composites is known.

Venus Pearl is available on the market as pre-dosed capsules (preloaded tip, PLT) or syringe in five different package options.  It becomes the latest addition to Heraeus' highly successful Venus family of composite materials, including the flagship Venus Diamond line.

Soft consistency for easy handling

The soft yet non-sticky consistency of Venus Pearl facilitates stress-free handling that is ideal for detailed cases requiring excellent sculptability and extended working time. Ultrafine-ground filling particles promote a long-lasting, natural-looking, high-luster polish. As with Venus Diamond, Venus Pearl achieves excellent color adaptation when used with either a single-layer or multi-layer technique.

Prior to launching Venus Pearl, Heraeus subjected the product to an extensive field test involving dentists from a number of European countries as well as the United States. The extremely positive response from the evaluators confirmed that Venus Pearl delivers exceptional handling in a practice environment. In fact, 92.3% of respondents felt the consistency was the same as or better than their current composite, and 9 out of 10 indicated they would use Venus Pearl in their office.

The perfect addition to a successful formula

Since 2002, the Venus family of innovative materials has provided restorative solutions that address the highest esthetic expectations of dentists and their patients.  With the softer Venus Pearl joining the firmer Venus Diamond in Heraeus' product portfolio, the company offers dental professionals a choice of two esthetic composites with superior mechanical properties that can be used according to personal preferences as well as indications.

Both composites utilize Heraeus' patented monomer matrix and the nano hybrid filler system. The proven and well-received formula combines minimal shrinkage stress and high flexural strength. These benefits are crucial in protecting against secondary caries and fracture, which are the main reasons composite fillings fail. By optimizing the filler system to effect a softer consistency, the unique physical structure of Venus Pearl makes it ideal in cases requiring greater malleability, such as those involving the anterior.

Long-lasting esthetic results

Due to the fine alignment of the refraction index of the fillers and the matrix, the Venus Pearl composite filling takes on the color of the surrounding hard tooth substance perfectly following polymerization to provide a remarkably natural look. A broad color spectrum with 26 different shades and three levels of translucency results in virtually undetectable restorative margins. The Venus Family Shade Guide and the Venus Pearl Layering Guide aid in optimal esthetic outcomes, both for single-shade and multiple-shade layer techniques.

The benefits of a broad range of indications

Due to its superior material properties, Venus Pearl can be used in numerous applications. It is suitable for direct (Class I-V) and indirect restorations, esthetic corrections, splinting of loosened teeth, restoration of primary teeth, repairs of ceramic and composite restorations, direct composite veneers, and core build-ups. It is compatible with all common bonding systems.
