SDI Riva Light Cure Glass Ionomer Restorative (50 Capsules)


SDI Riva Light Cure Glass Ionomer Restorative (50 Capsules)



Combination of GIC advantages and composite advantages

Riva Light Cure is a light-cured, resin-reinforced glass ionomer restorative cement.


SKU: N/A Manufacture:


Glass ionomers release fluoride and chemically bond to the tooth structure whilst composites have excellent aesthetics. Riva Light Cure is a combination of both with excellent aesthetics, fluoride release and chemically bonds to the tooth structure. Great marginal adaptation.

  • Riva Light Cure is the answer to long term microleakage prevention. Use it as a restorative or a base under permanent restorations. “….light-cured and self-cured glass ionomer bases were more effective in reducing microleakage in both the occlusal and proximal cavo surfaces than a flowable resin.“ (1)
  • Riva Light Cure HV can be manipulated immediately after mixing. It is a very sculptable material. It does not stick to instruments and resists any initial threading traditionally found with a light cured GIC. Riva Light Cure HV does not lift off after placement, particularly in the maxillary position.
  • Riva Light Cure utilises SDI’s proprietary ionglass™ filler developed by our glass technologists. ionglass™ is a radiopaque, high ion releasing, bioactive glass used in SDI’s range of glass ionomer products. Riva Light Cure releases fluoride to assist with remineralisation of the natural dentition.
  • Having many shades available, Riva Light Cure enables natural looking restorations with chameleon effects.
  • The surface hardness of resin-reinforced glass ionomer cements means good long-term wear resistance. The greater the surface hardness, the greater the resistance to permanent surface indentation.
  • Riva Light Cure has excellent resistance to common stains such as black tea and red wine. Riva Light Cure absorbs about half as much color from these tannin-rich solutions.
  • High flexural strength ensures reduced cracking and failure in flexion. Riva Light Cure has excellent flexural strength.
  • Riva Light Cure is quick and simple to place. No bonding procedure is required. It chemically bonds to the tooth and provides ion exchange to demineralised dentition.
  • Riva Light Cure does not contain any Bisphenol A (BPA) or its derivatives. Use this product with confidence and peace of mind.
  • Riva Light Cure’s capsule has a transparent orange nozzle. This protects the paste from curing under operating light in between placement.
