Core-Post is ideal for core buildups in single- tooth restorations. Since it flexes like natural tooth structure, it dramatically minimizes tooth stress and fractures that occur with standard metal posts. With a coefficient of thermal expansion and modulus of elasticity nearly identical to dentin, its exceptional physical properties are key to its strength and compatibility with cement, dentin, and core. It's radiopaque, easy to cut and use, and available in both carbon fiber for increased posterior strength and tooth-colored glass fiber for anterior aesthetics. Both carbon fiber and glass fiber Core-Posts are available in 5 diameters: 1.0, 1.2, 1.4, 1.7, and 2.0 mm. The Core-Post Value Kit includes 50 posts. A single vial kit (one size each of 10 posts) is also available as well as an intro kit, which contains 2 carbon posts and 2 glass posts. For more information, call (800) 445-0345 or visit denmat.com.
