Kerr Dental’s Maxcem Elite and Maxcem Elite Chroma Universal Resin Cement meet all indirect restoration needs while reducing inventory requirements, according to the company. Along with universal versatility, Kerr Dental said, Maxcem Elite and Maxcem Elite Chroma also deliver higher bond strength and exceptional color stability.

“With Maxcem Elite and Maxcem Elite Chroma, practices can have the best of both worlds—the simplicity of a self-adhesive cement and the confidence of an adhesive resin cement that works with any leading universal bonding agent,” said Lea Pagaduan, senior marketing manager at Kerr Dental.

“Both can be used for any indirect restoration in self-cure, light-cure, or dual-cure modes, which means doctors can confidently keep using their preferred cementation technique,” Pagaduan said.

The cements also reduce the amount of time, resources, and money that practices spend on managing inventory, Kerr Dental said. Both are compatible with all tested dental substrates, with no additional activators needed for use with adhesive in self-cure or dark-cure mode, the company said.

Also, users can optimize cleanup time with One-peel cleanup and Maxcem Elite Chroma’s color indicator, which dispenses pink and fades as the cement cures, according to Kerr Dental.

“Doctors can enjoy this added simplicity and flexibility without sacrificing bond strength and performance,” said Cameron Hume, associate global product manager. “In tests, Maxcem Elite and Maxcem Elite Chroma offered one of the most secure holds compared to other leading self-adhesive cements on the market.”

Maxcem Elite and Maxcem Elite Chroma also demonstrate best-in-class bond strength to dentin and enamel with any leading bond agent without having to light-cure the adhesive, Kerr Dental said.

“While bond strength is critical, doctors also want their restorations to look beautiful,” said Hume. “Maxcem Elite and Maxcem Elite Chroma deliver on this demand as well, with long-lasting color stability and exceptional aesthetics.”

Because they both use the same proprietary and proven redox initiator system used in NX3 Nexus, Kerr Dental said, any color shifts over time are virtually imperceptible.
