Voco's new Admira Fusion X-tra is the world's first all-ceramic-based direct bulk-fill restorative material.

After almost two decades of intensive research and development, Voco created the first ever nano-ORMOCERwith its nanohybrid and ORMOCER(ORganically MOdified CERamic) technologies. The company launched Admira Fusion, the first all-ceramic-based direct universal restorative, and now it has introduced Admira Fusion X-tra, the first all-ceramic-based direct bulk-fill restorative material.

As a nano-ORMOCER, Admira Fusion X-tra’s chemistry base is formed by silicon oxide, making up both the glass fillers as well as the ceramic-resin matrix, a first of its kind. This unique "pure silicate" technology offers several advantages, including up to 50% lower polymerization shrinkage (1.25% by volume) and up to 50% lower shrinkage stress than today’s conventional composites—two key physical properties for bulk-fill restoratives. Admira Fusion X-tra has a 4-mm depth of cure for fast and long-lasting posterior restorations.

The ORMOCER matrix used in Admira Fusion X-tra makes the material highly biocompatible, as it contains none of today’s classic monomers—such as bisphenol A (BPA), bisphenol A glycidyl methacrylate (bis-GMA), triethyleneglycol-dimethacrylate (TEGDMA), urethane dimethacrylate (UDMA), etc. The light-curing, radiopaque Admira Fusion X-tra contains 84% inorganic filler content (by weight), giving it excellent strength and wear resistance. This homogeneous material offers nonsticky handling and is compatible with all conventional bonding materials.

Admira Fusion X-tra is available in one universal shade. Its nanoparticulate amplifies its chameleon effect, enhancing its ability to adapt and blend to surrounding tooth structure compared to conventional composites.
