  • Performs well for both anterior and posterior restorations
  • Is both creamy and sculptable
  • Polishes beautifully
  • Matches shade guide perfectly

Vit-l-escence Master Layering Technique

See Instructions for Use for complete instructions, warnings, and precautions.

  1. For Class IV restorations, veneers, or diastema closures, we recommend a silicon putty matrix fabricated from diagnostic wax-up.

    For Class IV restorations
  2. Use the matrix as a guide for the basic shape of the restoration and to support the initial lingual placement of material.

    Use the matrix as a guide for the basic shape
  3. Use a thin layer of Opaque Snow™ to establish lingual contour and prevent show-through. This is not necessary if tooth structure exists on the lingual wall.

    Use a thin layer of Opaque Snow
  4. Inner dentin body layer includes the basic hue of the exposed dentin. If this is an A2, an A5 would be applied at the cervical and an A4 towards the incisal. Cure and apply basic hue (A2). Create mamelons using a carver.

    Inner dentin body layer
  5. Cover body and extend enamel edge with appropriate translucent shade. To achieve a "halo" (white line at the incisal edge), place a thin roll of Pearl Frost™ or Opaque Snow.

    Cover body and extend enamel edge with appropriate translucent shade
  6. Make final adjustments with multifluted finishing burs. Use Jiffy™ composite cups, points, and disks for smoothing. Polish with Jiffy™ HiShine™ polishers.

Vit-l-escence enables you to create lifelike restorations to perfectly match any patient’s smile. This case by Dr. Rafael Beolchi demonstrates how to produce natural results using a combination of shades within the Vit-l-escence system.

Dr. Jaimee Morgan demonstrates a three shade composite restoration technique using Ultradent's Vit-l-escence esthetic restorative material.

"​As a 30-year vet of trying to make anterior restorations look like teeth and having tried all the 'latest and greatest' new composites over this time, I have found Vit-l-escence to be the only composite with which I can predictably achieve my goal."

Dr. Jack Mullen – Rocky Mount, NC

"​Just the right amount of translucency and pearliness allows invisible blending on enamel margins for posterior restorations. Combined with the easy handling and finishability of your Vit-l-escence products, these shades are truly 'pearl' precious and beautiful."

Dr. Maryann Pittman – Saint Petersburg, FL

"​With Vit-l-escence, I can do Class IV restorations that are indistinguishable from natural teeth. What a great product!"

Dr. Sarah Balser – Columbus, OH

"​The ability to match various shades and nuances of natural teeth has given me the tools to produce results I would not have believed possible. This product alone raised my skill leavel at least two notices higher."

Dr. Harper Jones II – Pendleton, OR

Q: Can I use Vit-l-escence esthetic restorative material with the composite system I'm currently using?

A: Absolutely! We recommend augmenting your current composite system with the exclusive Vit-l-escence pearl and translucent shades. Adding these shades to your next restoration will add a value and depth to the final result, leaving your patient with a truly lifelike smile.

Q: In cases where the patient desires a bleached result, which shades do you recommend?

A: A thin layer of Opaque White followed by Pearl Frost will achieve a bleached result. Opaque Snow can also be used as a stand-alone bleach shade in cases where the patient desires very white teeth.
