Medical-grade silicones for dental impression

Vinylpolysiloxanes (VPS) are widely used in dentistry to make impression of hard and soft oral tissues, and our easy-to-handle addition-cure VPS silicones offer excellent reproduction of details.

Dental impression materials and addition-cure silicones

Dental impression materials are used to make replicas of hard and soft oral tissues for the purposes of making models for study, diagnosis, or the fabrication of prosthetic devices. 

Addition-cure silicones, also called vinylpolysiloxanes (VPS), provide a variety of benefits compared to other materials:

  • No dimensional change upon setting or storage
  • Suitable working times and working characteristics
  • Suitable physical properties (hardness, strength, etc.)
  • Excellent reproduction of details
  • Good biocompatibility
  • Optimum colors for high visibility
  • Easy to dispense, easy to use
  • Work with a variety of techniques
