The glass ionomer restorative with true esthetics
*all shades A2
Combination of GIC advantages and composite advantages
Riva Light Cure is a light-cured, resin-reinforced glass ionomer restorative cement. Glass ionomers release fluoride and chemically bond to the tooth structure whilst composites have excellent aesthetics. Riva Light Cure is a combination of both with excellent aesthetics, fluoride release and chemically bonds to the tooth structure.
Great marginal adaptation
Riva Light Cure is the answer to long term microleakage prevention. Use it as a restorative or a base under permanent restorations. “….light-cured and self-cured glass ionomer bases were more effective in reducing microleakage in both the occlusal and proximal cavo surfaces than a flowable resin.“ (1)
Riva Light Cure HV can be manipulated immediately after mixing. It is a very sculptable material. It does not stick to instruments and resists any initial threading traditionally found with a light cured GIC. Riva Light Cure HV does not lift off after placement, particularly in the maxillary position.
Bioactive proprietary ionglass™ technology
Riva Light Cure utilises SDI’s proprietary ionglass™ filler developed by our glass technologists. ionglass™ is a radiopaque, high ion releasing, bioactive glass used in SDI’s range of glass ionomer products. Riva Light Cure releases fluoride to assist with remineralisation of the natural dentition.
