The new, versatile, nano-hybrid composite builds on Heraeus’ many years of experience in the development of composite materials. After more than five years of research, with the Charisma Diamond, Heraeus introduces the next generation of Charisma restorative materials. The newly developed filling system and the patented matrix provide the Charisma Diamond composite with better aesthetics, durability and comfort of use.
The highly dense composite filler system with nanoparticles allows for very natural aesthetics. Charisma Diamond provides a clear effect of changing colors. The refractive indexes of the fillers and the matrix have been perfectly matched, so that the restoration takes on the color of the surrounding tooth structure. The edges of the restoration are practically invisible. The ultra-fine filler particles facilitate polishing and achieving a high, long-lasting gloss.
The patented Charisma Diamond matrix is based on an exceptionally high-strength, special, low-shrink monomer. The high bending strength of the composite makes it resistant to pressure during chewing. This minimizes the risk of cracks and ensures a long service life of the restorations. The low material shrinkage stress reduces the risk of delamination of the margins and protects the restoration against discoloration and secondary caries.
With the Charisma Diamond, the dentist can create Grade I to V restorations of all levels of complexity. In simple cases, very good results can be achieved with the technique of one color, using universal colors. For exceptional results, even with difficult restorations, the dentist can use the multi-color technique by combining shades of different translucency. Charisma Diamond includes 21 universal shades, 4 opaque dentine shades and 4 incisal shades.
Charisma Diamond shows high consistency and a convenient long processing time under working light. It does not stick to the instruments and can therefore be applied easily and efficiently.
