Just like in a family, each member has a role to play. But collectively, each one is still part of the whole family. Like the famous quote, “the sum of the parts, equals the whole”. The same philosophy applies with Kuraray composite restorative materials: each one has a specified use, but all belong to the CLEARFIL™ MAJESTY family.
The first member of the family is CLEARFIL™ MAJESTY ES-2. This member has two siblings: CLEARFIL™ MAJESTY ES -2 Classic and Premium. CLEARFIL™ MAJESTY Classic has the following features and benefits: It is 78wt% filled; available in 16 traditional shades ranging from A-D (with two additional bleaching shades XW and W); and is intended as a mono-layer product. One shade would be used to complete the restoration.
CLEARFIL™ MAJESTY ES-2 Premium is a multi-layered product, where a selection of both and E and D shades will be used on each restoration. The E shades are enamel shades, which offer higher translucency; whereby the D shades are for the dentin region of the tooth.
Each member of this family offers shade selection based on lightness, utilizing the VITA Classical shade guide. We recommend rearranging the shade guide from the lightest to the darkest shade to assist you in obtaining the most accurate shade match.
The next member of the MAJESTY family worth mentioning is CLEARFIL™ MAJESTY ES-2 Universal. This product was brought to market to primarily use in the posterior region of the mouth. One shade only, this composite offers a chameleon effect and LD technology (light-diffusion technology) for seamless blending and almost indetectable margins. One shade streamlines your inventory!
Last but not least, CLEARFIL™ MAJESTY ES Flow is the family member which can be used as a liner/base material; or as a filling material for all cavity classifications. It contains silane-coated spherical filler particles, which offer a one-step polish. Just use a wet alcohol wipe on the surface to produce a high glossy surface. This product is available in syringe format with needle-nose applicator tips.
These family members rely on each other, but function independently, depending on your practice’s needs. Available in both syringe and PLT (pre-loaded tip), choose the delivery system which is right for you. Use the flowable material with either CLEARFIL™ MAJESTY ES-2 or Universal. The products are interchangeable, based on your personal preference. There is a family member ready to assist you with your restorative needs!
