Ivoclar Vivadent Variolink
Variolink Esthetic is an adhesive luting composite for the permanent cementation of ceramic and composite restorations. Based on its predecessors, Variolink II and Variolink Veneer, Variolink Esthetic combines features of both and is available in light-cure (LC) and dual-cure (DC) versions.
Variolink Esthetic contains the patented light initiator, Ivocerin, which is 100% amine-free for enhanced shade stability.
Variolink Esthetic LC is indicated for use with glass-ceramic, lithium disilicate and composite inlays, onlays, and veneers with a material thickness of less than two millimeters and sufficient translucency for light penetration.
Variolink Esthetic DC is designed for cases in which full light curing cannot be achieved, including opaque ceramic and composite inlays, onlays or partial crowns, and crowns and bridges. Each formulation has five shades available: Light+, Light, Neutral, Warm, and Warm+.
Variolink Esthetic LC is supplied in 2 g syringes, while Variolink Esthetic DCcomes in 5g and 9g automix syringes. The Variolink Esthetic system kits contain one syringe each of Warm, Neutral and Light cement and try-in paste, etching gel, Adhese Universal VivaPen, Monobond Plus, Liquid Strip, and accessories. Variolink Esthetic was evaluated by 31 consultants in over 300 uses. This adhesive resin cement system received a 98% clinical rating.
