Harmonize

Harmonize™

Universal Composite with Adaptive Response Technology

Experience the next generation composite that elevates your artistry.

Harmonize™ begins with ARTAdaptive Response Technology, the nanoparticle filler system that makes achieving lifelike restorations easier than ever before. ART also enables better blending capabilities and enhanced structural integrity, providing your restorations with exceptional strength and unmatched aesthetics.

Benefits

It is the ART in Harmonize that enables the seamless aesthetic qualities, remarkable handling, and strength comparable to a natural tooth.

  • Adaptive reflection to the light wavelength for an enhanced chameleon effect
  • Superior gloss retention and easier polishability
  • Adaptive viscosity for an easy shape of the composite and prevention of slumping
  • Minimised stickiness and simplified carving
  • Better curing efficacy for a long lasting performance

Reinforced filler structure

Very small spherical Silica and Zirconia particles are linked together and fused in a reinforced structure.

 

This improves the interaction and crosslinking between the filler system and the resin matrix, resulting in more efficient polymerisation and higher strength.

Proven mechanical strength

Harmonize demonstrates superior strength when compared to other leading composites, also owing to its high filler loading.

Dynamic viscosity

The patented rehological modifier allows the composite to adapt to each procedural step:

  • Improved flowability while sculpting, making it easy to shape the composite.
  • Increased viscosity once sculpting is complete, preventing the material from slumping.

Spherical shape

The spherical shape of the ART filler system enables high loading (81%), minimising stickiness and simplifying carving.

 

Why is it ideal for aesthetic restorations?

Harmonize is the first composite able to diffuse and reflect light in a similar way to human enamel, leading to an enhanced chameleon effect for better blending.

In real conditions, the way teeth reflect light is determined by two factors:

  • The light wavelength
  • The surface morphology

Light does not reflect from tooth enamel in a uniform manner: lower wavelengths (blue light) are diffused and are scattered more. Higher wavelengths (such as red light) are more specular on collimated. In other words, when interacting with the tooth structure, the specular reflection is wavelength dependent.

To help blend into tooth structure, a composite material should emulate this characteristic of human enamel at different wavelengths.
