Milford, DE, April 28, 2016.DENTSPLY Sirona introduces the new Calibra® family of definitive cements. Whatever your cementation needs, you can now count on easy cleanup, simple selection, and successful results.
Cement cleanup is no simple task. Improper cleanup of excess cement can increase the chances of crown failure.1 Thorough cleanup is essential, as 21% of crown failures are due to secondary caries, due in part, to excess resin cement.2 It’s no wonder 97% of dentists say cleaning up excess cement is important to ensure health of the gingiva.3
That's why the Calibra® family of cements has simplified cleanup of excess cement. Benefit from the speed of tack curing without the stress of over-curing with a tack cure initiation phase of up to 10 seconds. And an extended 45-second gel phase window4 means you have all the time you need to thoroughly remove excess cement without rushing.
Cement cleanup isn’t the only issue dentists have to tackle. Choosing the right cement for your procedure has never been simple… until now. The Calibra® family of definitive cements has made it easier than ever to choose the perfect cement for every restorative procedure:

4 10-second tack cure equals five-seconds wave cure per surface (buccal, lingual). For excess cement cleanup, monowave output LED lights with a single peak output around 470nm. High power, dual or broad spectrum lights may cause premature hardening of excess cement. Check curing light effect on mixed cement in the laboratory prior clinical use. Light curing mixed cement after one minute, or continuously for more than 10 seconds, at any time, will cause cement to adhesively set.
