Mimic the opalescent effects of enamel, brighten the tooth, and give it optical depth and vitality to your restorations with these two new Renamel shades…
Introducing two new Renamel shades that mimic the opalescent effects of enamel, brightening the tooth and giving it optical depth and vitality. Cosmedent offers this new color in Renamel® OPALITE™ Microfill and Renamel® OPAL™ Flowable Microfill.
Opalescence is the phenomenon of dichroism in which a material appears to be of one color when light is reflected from it and of another color when light is transmitted through it. The shorter wavelengths refract more and require a higher critical angle to escape an optically dense material than the reds and yellows. The hydroxyapatite crystals of enamel also act as prisms. Wavelengths of light have different degrees of translucency through teeth and dental materials. When illuminated, opals and enamel will transilluminate the reds and scatter the blues within their body, therefore enamel appears bluish even though it is colorless. The opalescent effects of enamel brighten the tooth and give it optical depth and vitality.
Add subtle opalescent effects with this packable, color-adaptive Microfill resin shade. With subtle opalescent effects, this shade will brighten a tooth and give it optical depth and vitality. This Renamel OPALITE shade has a color-adaptive effect and maintains the value of your restoration.
Try the Renamel OPALITE shade as a final layer on your anterior restorations to emulate a bright, natural enamel!
Renamel OPAL is a flowable translucent microfill shade with opalescent properties unique to anything on the market! This new shade recreates the subtle dichroism found in natural enamel. Due to the transmission of light when illuminated, opals and enamels will sometimes appear a delicate orange or blue.
Use Renamel OPAL shade beneath the final layer to create a natural incisal opalescence built into the restoration!
We are excited for the addition of Opal Flowable! It creates the appearance of translucency at the incisal edge. It adds dimension and brings the tooth to life. The flowable has excellent handling properties when using the composite brushes.
The opalescent effects within a tooth add a real sense of beauty and depth.
