Ultradent Products, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of high-tech dental materials, is announcing the launch of Transcend™ universal composite, a new composite material providing unmatched esthetics and handling properties. Transcend composite is designed to simplify the restorative process by allowing dentists to complete most restorations with just one shade of composite.

Thanks to Ultradent Products’ Resin Particle Match™ technology, Transcend composite offers high levels of translucency, allowing for ideal pigmentation and opacification to match the surrounding dentition. The Universal Body shade also has optimal opacity to help block the underlying tooth color, eliminating the need for a blocker shade.

"Transcend composite enables dentists to achieve excellent esthetic results with ease," says Ultradent Products Sr. VP of Research & Development, Neil Jessop. "Its unique formulation offers the perfect balance of flexibility, strength, and gloss retention to ensure the long-lasting results patients are seeking."

Transcend composite is a nanohybrid formula that combines high strength and easy sculptability, making it ideal for both posterior and anterior composite restorations. The handling properties of Transcend composite have been finely tuned to be firm but malleable, allowing it to stay in place without drooping or slumping during manipulation. The material is highly wear-resistant, but also less abrasive to opposing dentition than other composites on the market.

In addition to the Universal Body shade, Transcend composite features four dentin shades and two enamel shades for cases when a layering technique is appropriate. These layering shades were handpicked to include only the most popular shades from Ultradent's esthetic composite lines to ensure dentists have the shades needed to accomplish restorative work done on a regular basis.
