Stackable, dual-cure, fluoride-releasing, radiopaque composite core build-up
Core build-ups in vital and non-vital teeth

  • Advanced Dual-Cure Formula. 
30 second cure to a depth of 8mm! 
If light curing is not an option – allow Q-Core to self-cure in 4.5 minutes intra-orally!
  • Improved natural appearance.
  • The greater translucency of the enhanced Q-Core presents a more natural tooth appearance, which minimizes the chance of shadows under ceramic crowns - yet provides good contrast and excellent radiopacity.
  • Outstanding handling for ease of use.
  • Q-Core will stay put – even in difficult 
maxillary core build-ups, yet flows under 
pressure for excellent adaptation.
  • Preps like dentin without ditching.
  • Superior durability for peace of mind.
  • Q-Core composite core build-up material 
utilizes exclusive Hyperbranched.
  • TechnologyTM1 and nano-fillers for superior 
mechanical properties and long-term clinical success - available in automix SyringeMixTM and cartridge dispensers.
  • Depth of cure: A3 shade 8mm. White and blue shade 6mm.
