Universal Composite

Transcend universal composite is an innovative dental composite material used for direct and indirect restorations in both the anterior and posterior regions. It provides unprecedented shade matching with just one Universal Body shade due to its patented Resin Particle Match™ technology that eliminates the need for a blocker or opaquer to hide darker underlying colors. For anterior cases that demand more esthetic care, a simple and complementary shade system is available that includes four dentin and two enamel shades.

Transcend composite has a high compressive strength that helps the composite provide long-lasting restorations that can withstand the forces of mastication.1 Its ideal working consistency is easy to sculpt.2 Additionally, Transcend composite has a long-lasting gloss3 and is incredibly resistant to wear.4 With Transcend universal composite you can be confident in achieving exceptional, durable, esthetic results.

The Universal Body shade has amazing chameleon-like properties and doesn't require a blocker. I use it for the vast majority of my fillings. For those demanding cosmetic situations, the simple dentin and enamel shades allow for layering and give incredible results. Another home run product for Ultradent.

High Polishability

That Lasts

Transcend universal composite has excellent working consistency that makes it easy to sculpt, does not stick to instruments, stays where clinicians want, and polishes beautifully.6 Note in the test below that the beautiful gloss of Transcend composite barely changes from its initial shiny texture after being subjected to 5,000 brushing cycles.

Transcend has been an exciting addition to my daily clinical practice. We all want our dentistry to look as natural and as esthetic as possible while providing high-quality, long-lasting results. Transcend makes it quick and easy to match the shade for my patients. Transcend not only improves the final result but it also saves time and reduces stress because I can feel confident my shade match is going to be great!

Shade Adaptability

During Teeth Whitening

No new composite restorations may be required after the whitening treatment is completed for teeth that have been previously restored with Transcend composite, as the shade of the composite can adapt itself to continue to match the optical properties of the surrounding dentition as teeth get whitened.7

For the whitening test above, the tooth restored with Transcend composite was exposed to room-temperature 10% carbamide peroxide whitening gel for a total of 8 hours. After this time, the tooth was taken out of the gel, rinsed, and stored in room-temperature water. The tooth was put back into water overnight. The process was repeated daily for a set of 3 consecutive days and photographs were taken approximately one hour after each whitening cycle. The carbamide peroxide gel was changed for each round of the whitening study.

The clinicians who know me, know I am a faithful Vit-l-escence™ user. I like to place multiple layers for great esthetics whether I am restoring anterior or posterior teeth. However, there are times when I have felt it would be great to be able to just place one shade and not feel as though I have compromised the case. Transcend has accomplished this for me. I have been amazed at the beautiful case outcomes with just a single shade. I like having the simple 6 additional shade offerings for those cases where layering may be able to improve the result. With the Universal Body shade plus the dentin and enamel shades, I can cover about 90 percent of my cases.
