Versatile application and shading options: The nano-modifier contained in Tetric N-Ceram imparts the material with outstanding modeling properties. The material does not stick to instruments. Nano-particles are responsible for the material’s exceptional polishing properties. The integrated nano-color pigments are characteristic of the technology used in Tetric N-Ceram. Together with the natural translucency of the material, they create a chameleon effect. The nano-color pigments feature a spherical structure. As they are homogeneously distributed in the composite, they are responsible for improving the adjustment of the shade of the restoration to the surrounding natural teeth. As a result, very beautiful restorations are achieved, which are hardly distinguishable from the natural tooth structure. Tetric N-Ceram is available in 16 shades: two dentin shades, ten enamel shades, a highly translucent incisal shade, and three bleach shades.
A well-coordinated system: Tetric N-Ceram forms part of the Tetric N-Collection, a comprehensive composite restorative system for the fabrication of high-quality standard restorations. All the products of this system are coordinated with each other to ensure clinical success. Apart from the universal composite Tetric N-Ceram, Tetric N-Collection comprises the flowable composite Tetric N-Flow as well as the total-etch adhesive Tetric N-Bond, which is best used in conjunction with N-Etch, a 37% phosphoric acid etching gel. In addition, the self-etching adhesive Tetric N-Bond Self-Etch is available.

- The material does not stick to the instruments.
Tetric N-Ceram is a light-curing, radiopaque nano-hybrid composite based on nano-optimized technology for direct restorative procedures.
It can be universally applied to restore teeth in the anterior and posterior regions. Its nano-optimized filler technology is responsible for the material’s unique chameleon effect and natural esthetic results. Tetric N-Ceram demonstrates an exceptionally high level of radiopacity and thus significantly facilitates the diagnosis of secondary caries.
Tetric N-Ceram is available in 18 shades – 11 enamel, 3 dentin, 1 incisal, and 3 bleach shades. It is supplied in both syringes and Cavifils. The Tetric N-Ceram shade range comprises eleven universal materials. Depending on the requirements, they can be combined with three Dentin, one Transpa, or three Bleach shades.
