DUX Dental Introduces First Translucent Zinc Oxide Non-Eugenol Cosmetic Dental Cement

OXNARD, Calif., June 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DUX Dental is introducing a new temporary dental cement that contains prismatic color blending nanofillers that act like tiny beads of glass to reflect the color of any adjacent surface. The new product, called ZONEfree, is the only zinc oxide non-eugenol cosmetic cement that is translucent. Its unique formulation combines the esthetic benefits of reflective nanofillers and translucency, creating a natural look that blends with the color of the patient's own teeth, crowns or other surfaces around it. ZONEfree will be available for order through major dental dealers starting July 1st.

"The desire for a superior aesthetic result now overshadows the simple need to replace a broken tooth. Television, print media, and the successful esthetic results seen among friends and co-workers have raised the public's expectation about what they will get from their health care provider," said Michael Durda, vice president of clinical affairs of DUX Dental in Oxnard, Calif. "Because ZONEfree combines both reflective and translucent proprieties in one formula, the dental team can easily achieve a beautiful, natural-looking result."

ZONEfree has the reliable hallmarks of a zinc oxide non eugenol cement in that it is easy to apply, easy to clean up and remove, and provides excellent retention strength. When ZONEfree is dispensed and applied the cement has a pearly white appearance, giving it enough color to allow the dentist or assistant to place it precisely and see excess cement during clean up and removal. Yet, when ZONEfree is spread thin the cement blends with the adjacent surfaces creating a "chameleon effect" that results in a natural esthetic look. As the only translucent zinc oxide non-eugenol temporary cement, dentists can use ZONEfree without worrying about resin on resin build up and other issues common to resin based temporary cements.

"From my perspective, the most important feature of ZONEfree are the reflective nanofillers that get an excellent result with temporaries. That to me is very unique about ZONEfree," said Dr. Gary Radz, D.D.S. of Cosmetic Dentistry of Colorado. "In our office we are focused on patient satisfaction and providing beautiful esthetic dentistry. I can be confident that we achieve both when using ZONEfree." Hear more from Dr. Radz in his video interview.
