Latitude

Latitude is a light curing radiopaque fine-particle hybrid composite for universal use in the anterior and posterior region.

Latitude is state of the art nano particle light curing composite for all indications.
It shows an outstanding combination of high durability, polish ability to high luster and easy handling qualities which are outperforming most products in the same category. With it’s high translucency Latitude blends well into surrounding tooth structure.

Latitude has been extensively tested clinically and in wear simulations and showed excellent performance in the stress bearing and in the contact free area. It’s clinical handling is characterized as pack & tap type of viscosity which creates outstanding sculptability in complex defects like box shaped cavities and all kind of corners. Although Latitude is an excellent universal composite, the combination of the above mentioned properties makes it an ideal material for long lasting posterior restorations with natural esthetic.
