Gingival Characterisation for natural looking dentures using Enigma Gingival Composite presented by Stuart Marlow - 4 house verifiable CPD

There is nothing that complements beautiful teeth so much as beautiful natural gingival colouring. The ideal restorative outcome is to reproduce the patient’s own gums with their individual nuances of shade.

Beautiful, Tough & Durable The Enigma Gingival Composite range has been developed using micro-hybrid glass fillers. It provides not just durability and beauty but ease of handling and a superb smooth polish as well, adding beauty to the appliances you produce.

Colour Palette Enigma Gingival Composite is a comprehensive system of eleven shades providing the full colour palette. This width of shades enables easy reproduction of most gingival pigmentation without the need to mix colours, speeding up the process and making it quick and predictable. Precise positioning of the required shades is facilitated.

Vital & Easy to Polish Because Enigma Gingival Composite has been developed using the latest research into chairside composite materials, it has its own natural vitality.

Being a micro-hybrid it is non-sticky and easy to polish especially when the Schottlander Universal Polishing Wheel Super Fine (LBP-5) is used. The composite is placed and sculpted into position using the special Enigma instruments. No more attempting to control the position of a runny composite. Enigma Gingival Composite stays where you put it, ready for initial fixing with the light curing
