Combination of GIC advantages and composite advantages
Riva Light Cure is a light-cured, resin-reinforced glass ionomer restorative cement. Glass ionomers release fluoride and chemically bond to the tooth structure whilst composites have excellent aesthetics. Riva Light Cure is a combination of both with excellent aesthetics, fluoride release and chemically bonds to the tooth structure.
Riva Light Cure HV can be manipulated immediately after mixing. It is a very sculptable material. It does not stick to instruments and resists any initial threading traditionally found with a light cured GIC. Riva Light Cure HV does not lift off after placement, particularly in the maxillary position.
Great marginal adaptation
Riva Light Cure is the answer to long term microleakage prevention. Use it as a estorative or a base under permanent restorations. “....light-cured and self-cured glass ionomer bases were more effective in reducing microleakage in both the occlusal and proximal cavo surfaces than a flowable resin.“ (1)
Bioactive proprietary ionglass™ technology
Riva Light Cure utilises SDI’s proprietary ionglass™ filler developed by our glass technologists. ionglass™ is a radiopaque, high ion releasing, bioactive glass used in SDI’s range of glass ionomer products. Riva Light Cure releases fluoride to assist with remineralisation of the natural dentition.
Riva Light Cure does not contain any Bisphenol A (BPA) or its derivatives. Use this product with confidence and peace of mind.
Highest colour stability
Riva Light Cure has excellent resistance to common stains such as black tea and red wine. Riva Light Cure absorbs about half as much colour from these tannin-rich solutions.
Orange light safe tip
Riva Light Cure’s capsule has a transparent orange nozzle. This protects the paste from curing under operating light in between placement.
Riva Light Cure is quick and simple to place. No bonding procedure is required. It chemically bonds to the tooth and provides ion exchange to demineralised dentition.
Long term wear resistance
The surface hardness of resin-reinforced glass ionomer cements means good long-term wear resistance. The greater the surface hardness, the greater the resistance to permanent surface indentation.
High flexural strength
High flexural strength ensures reduced cracking and failure in flexion. Riva Light Cure has excellent flexural strength.
Having many shades available, Riva Light Cure enables natural looking restorations with chameleon effects.
