      Coltene/Whaledent Perm whenever possible. Diamond D and Excel Cold cure on hand to match above and other shade families.

      Immed Semi-Flex rpd:
      Ron/TD Dental's Qdent

      Uhler's - Nice medium level of melanin shading, not overboard. Works well for greater than 50% of pts in my region.

      Occasionally Diamond D but mostly, I use Lucitone 199 by Dentsply and love it.
      Dentsply recently introduced their new pour acrylic called Hipa, the color is a perfect match to their Lucitone 199, when Hipa is used to repair my 199, you could never tell the color difference, it's also perfect for flippers.

      For the meharry, I use GC.

      Lucitone is a well established(read as: old) brand presence that many people in my area use as a generic term. That's about the only nice thing I have to say about it.

      Diamond D:
      polishes faster with sharper detail and 'higher shine'
      Cures harder
      packs easier
      has better working properties during mix and pack stages
      It has enough time to roll it out and get all the veining lined up for more natural look, doesn't stick to the separation sheet nearly as bad during trial pack
      Finishes easier
      smells up the lab less

      Doesn't turn brown, in fact it has shown no color degredation at all yet on any cases I have out with it. I also make and keep test chips every six months and with every lot I receive. A set is kept wet, a set is kept dry. Dry set from 2 years ago still looks like the wet set from the latest chip make.

      The cold cure and heat are an absolutly perfect and undetecable match.

      Call them and ask for a sample, the people are kind and gracious. It's so good they only need to get you to use it once to keep you coming for more.

      The heat cure can be microwaved or water bath cured by changing monomers, same powder.

      I have no connection to them, just thought I was dreaming when I packed, devested, fi ished and polished my first case.

      Lucitone, well, I try not to speak ill of the aged and infirm. :) I don't know if it is possible to be a regional environment issue with 199 being so poor in long term appearance here. We have exceptionally high limestone content in the water and it may exacerbate issues.
      I will say that they outright lied to me when I asked if their new pourable HIPA, since they had the chance to being a completely new formulation, chemically bonded to the teeth enough that diatorics were no longer needed. They said yes. The IFU says you must make them.


      If someone wants to buy it, I have a hardly opened Lucitone HIPA trial pack...

      We use...
      GC naturecryl for press packing
      GC pour and Lucitone HIPA for pour processing
      Fricke hard flex for nightguards and temp flex partials
      Ivobase high impact for injection
      Inject dura flex and acytel resins for flex clasps and partials
      Mixture of acrylics for repairing to try and match as best as possible but I like dentsply repair material

      This is a Lucitone that's just processed, not even off the model or finished yet.
