Hardness and Durability
The hardness and durability of Enigma teeth are achieved through:
- a system of double cross linking using specially developed polymers
and cross linking agents giving a network of interpenetrating polymer
- precise computer dosing control of the layers required for each
individual tooth in each mold.
- precise computer control of the polymerization process.
Enigma teeth are therefore manufactured to be extremely durable as
can be seen from the comparisons below.
Bond to Acrylic
Despite their outstanding hardness and durability Enigma teeth exhibit
excellent bond strength to methyl methacrylate denture bases. It should
however be noted that some base materials have lower bond strengths
to many brands of teeth. It is therefore recommended to use Enigma
Hi-Base which has been extensively tested with Enigma teeth.
Anterior Teeth Also Available in Pairs
Enigma anteriors are also available in pairs. In the natural dentition,
canine teeth often appear darker than - or of a different shade to
- neighbouring incisors and premolars. To reproduce this using other
brands often requires buying two sets and wasting one of them. With
Enigma teeth you can order exactly what you need from the wide range
available. Ordering in pairs can also save money with partial dentures.
Please choose any shade combination. The following suggestions may
| Centrals/Laterals || Canine |
|D2 ||D3 |
|A3 ||A3.5 |
|B2 ||B3 |
|B3 ||B4 |
|C2 ||B3 |
|A4 ||B4 |
Opalescence and Fluorescence
Natural tooth enamel is opalescent, which adds to its translucency
without making it look grey. This effect has been built into Enigma
tooth enamel. The natural healthy tooth also fluoresces under UV lighting
as does Enigma. So a denture made using Enigma teeth reflects and
retracts light arriving from from different directions mimicking the
beauty and vitality of natural living teeth.
Wide Shade Range
Enigma teeth are provided in the 16 standard shades A1-D4 in every
mold. The same vitality can be found across the whole Enigma shade
range with even the very light A1 and B1 containing subtle variations
in colour and translucency.
Matching Posterior Teeth
complex colour blending of the anteriors is carried through to the
posteriors so that their cusps mimic those of natural teeth. The darker
neck colour adds to the feeling that here too a superior tooth is
being used. Enigma posteriors have high strength, high resistance
to wear, and the same bond strength to the denture base as the anteriors.
