SOUTH BEND, Indiana--Heraeus Kulzer and DenTrek have announced activation of a new 3-D animated training module featuring Venus Bulk Fill, a flowable composite by Heraeus.To read more about Heraeus, go to Heraeus.The training module is available directly at Visitors to the site will also have access to Heraeus’ portfolio of live CE webinars, archived programs, and product training tutorials. Venus Bulk Fill is an advanced posterior restorative that enables bulk filling of 4-mm increments to provide dentists with a faster, easier technique than incremental layering. In a recent survey, three of four dentists reported that up to 60% of their restorations are at least 4 mm deep. Traditional flowables have a depth-of-cure capability of only 2 mm which requires multiple application of material and repeated light-curing to complete common restorations. This increases chair time, lowers productivity and raises the risks of voids and gaps in the restoration. “Venus Bulk Fill delivers what the dental profession has been looking for—the complete confidence to bulk fill an esthetic posterior composite restoration in half the procedure time without sacrificing quality,” said Robert Marus, DDS. In a recent survey, 82% of surveyed dentists cited a savings up to 10 hours of chairtime per month when they use a bulk fill material. Key advantages of Venus Bulk Fill include: * Great depth of cure and low shrinkage stress* Improved long-term marginal integrity* High flowability and self-adaptive handling* Coverage of cavity floor and walls* Longer working time* High radiopacity for accurate diagnosisVenus Bulk Fill Introductory Kits are available through distributors and include the materials required for a complete esthetic restoration, including a choice of iBOND Self Etch or iBOND Total Etch for the adhesive layer, Venus Bulk Fill for the base layer, and Venus Diamond for the final top layer.
