Absolute Dentin

  • Category: Parkell
  • Brand: High Strength Core Composite

New Absolute Dentin® LV is a nano-filled, dual-cure core composite material conveniently packaged in a hand-dispensed 5ml syringe. A proprietary, low shrinkage filler provides impressive compressive, tensile and flexural strengths for strong, durable composite cores. The manufacturing of Absolute Dentin LV involves a process that is void of any BisPhenol A (BP-A). Absolute Dentin LV cuts similar to dentin resisting bur ditching. The material ensures excellent adaptation to irregularly-shaped tooth structures and post/core preparations.

Absolute Dentin LV’s dual-cure capability ensures complete polymerization in deep areas of the tooth and root (when cementing a post and building a core). Absolute Dentin LV is available in Tooth Shade for maintaining aesthetics under full ceramic restorations and a White Shade for masking underlying aesthetic discrepancies and for allowing a visual delineation of the core from natural tooth shades.

High-Strength Core Composite that Stacks Great and Preps Like Dentin

Today’s metal-free esthetic crowns demand a stiff supporting core. That’s why when it comes to a core build-up material you want the best—the ABSOLUTE BEST. High-strength Absolute Dentin™ stacks great and preps like dentin right out of the cartridge. Plus, it’s versatile. Not only can it be used to build-up material in the core of a broken down tooth, but also as a cement for endodontic posts.


When it comes to a composite material, the smallest amount of flex can cause a fragile ceramic crown to craze or fracture. That’s why we created Absolute Dentin to cure to a Barcol hardness of 72, the typical hardness of dentin (hence the name). This core composite material displays a 172MPa flexural strength for strong, stable cores that last and resist flexing. This high level of durability also helps to reduce the chance that your bur will ditch when it goes from core to tooth and back again while finishing.

Convenient and Saves Time

With Absolute Dentin there’s no need for hand mixing or triturating. It displays excellent flow directly out of the cartridge for simple placement and minimal waste. Plus, with dual-cure capabilities, it means you don’t have to build-and-light-cure the core in layers. Just express the material onto the tooth and light-cure the surface for 40 seconds; the rest of the material will self-cure in approximately 4 minutes. With this streamlined placement, you’ll spend less time chairside!


Absolute Dentin is available in our popular 50ml cartridge for high volume practices and also in handy 10ml cartridges. Designed for easy dispensing and storage, the 10ml cartridges are packaged two cartridges to a kit (20ml total) and are available in all three shades– Arctic White, Tooth Shade or Blue. 10ml size cartridges require a 10ml dispensing gun.
