When it comes to high-end restorations, Kiss will allow you to achieve a top-quality veneer in a manner that is both faster and simpler. Optimized shade pigments enhance the shade fidelity of Kiss, similar to the V-shades. This also largely eliminates the problem of differences in shade appearance under different lighting conditions. In the classic high-fusing veneering ceramics, the opalescence can lose its effect after a number of firing cycles. With Kiss, this effect – and with it the natural light dynamic appearance – remains intact thanks to the patented manufacturing process used for the Kiss opal powders.
All V-shades can be produced with the 40 materials shown here, without any mixing at all. The range of six incisals allows a better representation of the V-shades in the incisal area. All opaques are precisely adjusted to the respective basic shade. Their fluorescence levels are adapted to the different shade intensities and, consequently, to the natural tooth model. A superb base for your daily work – effortless success for almost everything you attempt.
The six fluorescent Power Chromas can reproduce the majority of all cervical and mamelon effects as well as increases in chroma. Simple 1:1 mixtures between these Power Chromas results in an additional 15 intermediate shades.
With the Action-i-Dentins Dentsply Sirona introduces additional masses for even greater individualization supporting more advanced veneering concepts with rich colors including additional Gum shades.
The individual incisals within the Kiss concept allow the emulation of all natural opalescent and fluorescent effects.
Opal incisals 1 and 2 are intended for lighter (OS 1) and darker (OS 2) shades. For intermediate shades, the two powders are simply mixed at a 1:1 ratio. The same principle holds for Flu Inside 1 and 2. These highly fluorescent materials are designed for the inner layers, covering the opaque even where space is limited, while at the same time increasing the lightness in the incisal area.
White Surface (WS) is a whitish opalescent effect used to increase surface value (brightness). The effect can be minimized by adding Stand by. To reproduce the effects of teeth that have been bleached, Bleach Opaques and Bleach Dentins are available.
A particularly successful and versatile correction material is the transparent Final Kiss.
The Stand by multifunctional material is a strongly transparent opal effect that is one of the keystones of the Kiss concept. It can be used by itself or mixed with any other material.
The three opal effects, Ocean, Sky and Fog, control value and opalescence in bluish and greyish incisal regions. Sunset and Sunrise are suitable for incisal characterization and for subdued transparent chroma gradations in the body region.
By mixing Gum 1 to Gum 4 with selected effects (see chart), natural gingival effects can be emulated very closely and simply.
