Dentine and enamel, with the Aura ultra universal restorative system, is the easy solution to creating as close to nature anterior and posterior restorations. Based on the natural make-up and colours of the dentine and enamel, Aura uses a logical yet innovative approach to shade-matching and layering in one single composite system. Its unique blend of filler and resin work in harmony to deliver the strength and aesthetics needed to provide long-lasting and life-like restorations with ease.

“I have been using Aura for over 5 years. It is easy to use, durable and has excellent aesthetics. There are a variety of shades. The Aura composite system is versatile and can be used for many bonding situations. There are great shades for bonding after tooth bleaching.”

Aura combines a low shrinkage resin composition with a unique morphology of ultra high density (UHD) filler. This provides the exceptional strength of a nano-hybrid composite that can withstand high compressive forces, coupled with an enamel shade range made from microfilled pre-polymerised particles for easy polishability and sculptability.

Aura removes the guesswork from finding the right shade for your restorations with its unique linear and scientific arrangement that brings predictability and simplicity to customising shades.

Selecting the dentine shade plays a major role in determining the overall tooth colour (hue). Nearly all dentine falls into the redbrown-yellow hue. Aura focuses on where tooth colours vary (the ‘chroma’) and how strong or weak the chroma is to recreate the natural make-up and colours of the enamel and dentine.

These SEM images show the difference in size of fillers when compared with other composite materials. The smaller prepolymerised microparticles of Aura make it stronger than a standard microfill. This allows for fast and easy polishing to a long-lasting high gloss finish without the ‘plucking effect’ of large particles. Those with larger particles are unable to achieve the same results.
