Luscent® Anchors are made of unidirectional fiberglass rods encapsulated in a strong resin matrix. The rods transmit light, ensuring complete cure of core material. Luscent Anchors also reflect natural hues and eliminate shadowing through composites at the margin, making them ideal for highly esthetic restorations.
In addition to aesthetics, Luscent Anchors feature excellent strength characteristics. Their flexural modulus is approximately 20 GPA, very similar to that of natural dentine. Light or dual cure composites bond to the Luscent Anchors, which allow sufficient time for exact centering and seating of the anchor, as well as a complete fill of the composite inside the canal thus creating a cohesive, strong monobloc foundation. Luscent Anchors can be placed in both narrow and large canals with conventional adhesive techniques and materials.
