A restoration made from composite material has many benefits such as increased strength and durability. Although composite restorations have aesthetic qualities, they do not give the natural tooth like appearance of porcelain. That is, until now.
New GC Gradia is a unique, light-cured, micro-ceramic-composite system for crowns, bridges, inlays and veneers, which compared to conventional composites gives restorations a more natural colour tone. A product of GC research, GC Gradia’s more natural tooth appearance has been achieved by developing its resin colour tones in conjunction with its application technique. This combined approach to development has created a system where the final restoration is of optimum hue, brightness and chroma, whilst minimising the paleness inherent with composites. The result is a restoration with an opalescence that's comparable to porcelain and closer to natural teeth which would previously have been impossible to attain using traditional composite materials.
