    Variolink® Veneer-Ivoclar Vivadent

    Variolink Veneer is an “easy clean-up” microfill resin cementation system that features a unique
    “value” shade system. Available in seven light-cure (amine-free) shaded cements and try-in pastes,
    the logical “value” shading sequence simplifies cement selection. The shades are based on the true
    influences of the cement (i.e., the “value” or relative brightness) on the esthetics of final restoration,
    rather than on the “color” of the cement. As a result, clinicians truly have the ability to manipulate
    the visible effects demonstrated in the final restorations.

    Variolink Veneer is indicated for the adhesive cementation of all-ceramic restorations (e.g., IPS
    Empress®, IPS Empress® Esthetic, IPS ProCAD®, IPS e.max®) where light-curing is indicated.

    Variolink Veneer’s reinforced microfill technology provides high wear resistance with long-lasting
    polish and provides an ideal interface between ceramic/tooth structure and gingival tissue.
    Its formulation is also designed for easy clean-up regardless of your preferred placement
    technique – resulting in saving valuable time chairside.


    Easy Clean-up

    Variolink Veneer offers the clinician a fast, easy solution to cleaning up excess cement during the
    adhesive bonding procedure. No more grinding or burs or tedious clean up required. Simply load the
    restorations, seat and tack & wave with a dental curing light. Excess cement can be easily peeled away
    prior to complete polymerization. Variolink Veneer provides the unique combination of the security
    of adhesive bonding and the easy clean up of a conventional cement.

    Ultimate Esthetics

    Variolink Veneer offers 7 light-cure value shades to enhance the esthetics of
    the final restoration. The Medium Value (MV 0) is highly translucent and has
    little effect on the final restoration. The High Value (HV+1, HV+2, HV+3)
    shades allow the clinician to gradually brighten or increase the value and
    the Low Value shades (LV-1, LV-2, LV-3) provide a gradual “warming” effect
    to the appearance of the final restoration.

    This logical value shading system enables a close working relationship with
    the laboratory and ensures proper shade selection by simply determining if
    the restoration needs to reflect an increase or a decrease in value
    (or relative brightness.)

    Outstanding Physical Properties

    The microfill based chemistry provides key
    benefits for Variolink Veneer including lower
    wear, higher translucency, smoother surface
    finish at marginal interfaces and stronger bonds.

    • Significantly lower wear values compared
      to competitive resin cements currently on
      the market ensure long term clinical
      success of your esthetic restorations.
    • Practically complete transparency
      (with shade MV 0) gives you the option to
      minimize any affect of the cement on the appearance of the final restoration.
    • A smoother (microfill) surface finish
      minimizes dis at the margins.

    the only beef i have with variolink veneer is it's radiolucency. it rubs me raw to see what appears to be an open margin on an xray. for that reason alone i stopped using it and switched back to variolink II using the light cure component only. i didn't want future doc's looking at my work and incorrectly assuming negligence.

    I agree, Dr. Bret. This Variolink Veneer's a neat choice but yes, that issue of its radiolucency comes up in x-ray results. I'm also back to using Variolink II.
