Light cured resin reinforced glass ionomer restorative material. The new Easy Activation capsules are now 70% easier to activate. This saves you time and effort when preparing a restoration. Riva Light Cure ionglassTM biomimetic technology mimics dentin’s hydrophilic characteristic. It also mimics translucency and opacity of dentin and enamel, for a beautiful natural-looking restoration. Riva Light Cure replaces dentin and bonds chemically to the tooth. No etching or adhesive is required, dramatically reducing the risk of sensitivity. A patient with a nice smile and no sensitivity has better quality of life. Riva Light Cure with ionglassTM biomimetic technology ensures very high flexural strength, for long term restorations that will withstand mastication forces without cracking. The high flexural strength also makes Riva Light Cure the ideal material for minimally invasive treatments, cervical erosions/abfraction lesions, class V restorations and as a base or liner. The extra strong matrix provides great fluoride release. This increases the chances that Riva Light Cure restorations will be free of caries, while having very low wear. Research shows that Riva Light Cure has the highest cumulative fluoride release at 6 weeks. With Riva Light Cure, patients receive long term restorations every time, increasing their satisfaction with the treatment provided by the dentist. Riva Light Cure can be effortlessly placed and sculptured without sticking to your instruments. This outstanding restorative does not pluck, saving you time and maintaining placement integrity, especially when restoring upper teeth. Riva Light Cure offers fantastic handling, perfect for quick placements in patients who require quick restorations, such as children, people with special needs or patients with back or neck problems. The Riva Light Cure capsule has a transparent orange nozzle. The orange tint protects the paste from prematurely curing under operating light in between placements. This innovation ensures you receive maximum placement control, while reducing waste. Riva Light Cure is 70% easier to extrude. This minimizes hand tremors and muscle stress, giving you more stability and control when placing restorations. Riva Light Cure is formulated to give you the best aesthetic result. It provides high translucency and ideal optical properties. This chameleon effect effortlessly blends with surrounding tooth structure and dentin. Riva Light Cure has excellent resistance to common stains such as black tea and red wine. Riva Light Cure outperforms other solutions by 50%, ensuring your patients have brighter and natural, whiter smiles for longer.

Using award winning patented ionglassTM technology, Riva Light Cure has earned its reputation through superior aesthetics, strength and handling. Riva Light Cure is the ideal long term glass ionomer solution. The ionglassTM technology stimulates the biomineralization of dentin by over saturating the minerals in its organic matrix. The result is the formation of fluorapatite crystals, which are more resistant to acid attacks than the natural tooth, benefiting patients during bacterial and acidic challenges. The surface hardness of resin-reinforced glass ionomer cements means good long term wear resistance. The greater the surface hardness, the greater the resistance to permanent surface indentation.
