Q: Is Evanesce best for anterior or posterior cases?
A: Both: Evanesce is truly a universal composite. Evanesce is a stiffer composite by design and features a high compressive strength, making it an excellent choice for durable posterior restorations. Evanesce’s esthetics and non-slump consistency combined with its ability to quickly come to a high-shine make it an ideal choice for any anterior composite restoration. Evanesce matches the VITA shade guide accurately, providing ideal shade predictability, while its unique nano-fillers allow Evanesce to blend into natural tooth structure to create truly invisible margins.
Q: This composite is stiffer than what I’m used to – why is that?
A: Clinician’s Choice designed Evanesce to be a little stiffer, which allows for superior handling. Evanesce’s no-slump handing allows the material to freeze when sculpting is complete, until it’s light-cured. For posterior teeth, this stiffness allows for Evanesce to be packed effortlessly into the restoration and hold its position.
Q: What is Evanesce’s wear resistance?
A: Evanesce’s wear rate is 38 microns per 200,000 brushes.
Q: How often do you have to cure when packing Evanesce?
A: It is important to cure every 2mm of Evanesce before adding any additional material, just as you would for any non-bulk fill composite.
Q: Can Evanesce be used with any bond?
A: Yes, Evanesce is compatible with all bonding materials.
Q: How can Evanesce help manage my inventory?
A: You can actually reduce your office’s inventory by using Evanesce for all your composite restorations. Truly a universal composite, Evanesce is ideal for both anterior and posterior restorations while its simple technique often requires only a single shade or, in more complex cases, fewer layers of composite.
Q: What instruments pair well with Evanesce?
A: We suggest using the Dr. Ronald Jordan Instrument #10 for condensing Evanesce into a Class II preparation and for sculpting into the occlusal surface of the tooth. This instrument is also ideal for composite contouring. The Dr. Ronald Jordan Instrument #04 features long, slender blades for shaping and sculpting composites interproximally. For a high-shine lustre on all composite surfaces, we recommend A.S.A.P. All Surface Access Polishers.
