SOUTH BEND, Indiana—Heraeus Kulzer, a leader in dental esthetics, has announced the U.S. market launch of PALA cre-active.

PALA cre-active is a light-curing color fluid system used for the customized characterization of dentures.

The system includes a variety of fluid colors (white, polar, pink, red, maroon, black) and gingiva material (pink, shade 200, R50, light pink, clear, and gum) to create a natural, realistic appearance. PALA cre-active color fluids can be mixed into the cre-active gingiva material as color intensifying agents.

Due to the availability of paste and liquid consistencies and six different color shades, customized gingival regions can be created featuring smooth or rough surfaces with transparent, light red, or dark red effects.

When used in combination with Signum connector bonding agent, the PALA cre-active system is particularly suitable for characterizing full and partial dentures, as well as implant-retained dentures. While PALA cre-active can be used with most light-curing units, Heraeus Kulzer indicates that the Signum HiLite power light-curing unit is intended for the polymerization of the characterized denture.

Other advantages laboratories will experience with the PALA cre-active system are quick and easy application (12 anterior teeth can be done in approximately 30 minutes), quick corrections, and the ability to be ground and polished.

“We are very excited about the ability of PALA cre-active to help dental laboratories economically and efficiently provide their customers with remarkably natural-looking, individually characterized dentures,” said Sonny Serreno, director of scientific and clinical affairs for Heraeus Kulzer.

“The combination of PALA cre-active, Signum connector bonding agent, and the Signum HiLite power curing light allows dental laboratories to differentiate themselves and increase the value they bring to their dental practices.”
