All too often, fragile, thin-walled teeth present major restorative problems; cast posts or extractions are the only alternative. But now Luminex®, a clear, light-transmitting, plastic post, polymerizes light-cured composites within the entire root canal. After curing, the Luminex post is removed, leaving a ready canal for a corresponding Surtex Post.
The Luminex post technique centers and forms a parallel-sided canal for corresponding Dentatus Surtex metal posts. Luminex posts have superior aesthetics for light-cured composite inside the canal that masks metal posts with a reflective tooth colored foundation for modern restorations. Having technique versatility, Luminex smooth and grooved posts may also be used as an impression and castable post pattern in the direct and indirect fabrication of posts. Luminex Posts are available in the Luminex Post System and refills to match.
