Coordinated with IPS e.max CAD and IPS e.max Press[5, 7, 9, 10]

Variolink Esthetic produces high bond strength values on restorations made of glass-ceramics, e.g. IPS e.max CAD[9, 12], IPS e.max Press[5, 7, 10] and IPS Empress CAD, when used in combination with the world’s first self-etching glass-ceramic primer Monobond Etch & Prime. The single-component ceramic primer etches and silanates glass-ceramic surfaces in one easy step. Etching the contact surfaces with the unpopular hydrofluoric acid is no longer required.

Reliable bond to zirconium oxide restorations[5, 8]

Variolink Esthetic DC produces reliable bond strength values on restorations made of zirconium oxide and glass-ceramic, when used in conjunction with the proven universal primer Monobond Plus[5, 8, 13]. Because of a innovative combination of adhesive monomers, this primer also achieves a very high bond to base metal and noble metal alloys[14].

Freedom to customize esthetics 


The seating of esthetic restorations is very demanding. The Effect shade range of Variolink Esthetic, which comprises a well-balanced and compact selection of shades, enables you to place your restorations seamlessly within the natural dentition, thereby further customizing the results.
The Effect shades allow dental professionals to match the shade effect of the restoration to that of the adjacent natural teeth. The “Neutral” shade demonstrates the highest translucency level and therefore enables colour-neutral luting of the restoration. The shades “Light” and “Light+” produce a gradual lightening effect, while the shades “Warm” and “Warm+” gradually darken the overlying ceramic or composite restoration.
