Superior Strength, Superior Aesthetics
Filler particle size effects the aesthetic and mechanical properties of composites1. Luna contains a hybrid of nano and micron sized particles to achieve optimal aesthetics and strength.
Nano particles assist in polishability and the maintenance of surface smoothness over time. Micron sized particles contribute to strength and durability. Luna’s hybrid filler makes it ideal for anterior and posterior restorations.
Luna displays a chameleon effect, enabling it to take on the shade of the tooth surrounding it and present a seamless margin between tooth and restoration. Luna has an optimal translucency that allows the creation of natural looking restorations.
Natural fluorescence and opalescence
When exposed to ultraviolet light, Luna displays the fluorescent characteristics of natural tooth structure. Opalescent properties also match that of a natural tooth. In all types of light, restorations using Luna display intrinsic brilliance that ensures patient satisfaction after they leave the dental chair.
High Flexural Strength
High flexural strength is paramount to mitigate tension and compressive forces teeth are exposed to in stress bearing situations1. Class I and Class II restorations are subject to high forces and require the use of materials with high flexural strength. With flexural strength of 136 MPa, Luna is ideal for use in stress bearing areas and is designed to withstand the forces of mastication.
Samples prepared according to ISO 4049
Superior Compressive Strength
Luna has a filler load of 77% by weight. Strontium glass filler in combination with the carefully selected filler loading, delivers high compressive strength to enhance the longevity of restorations.
