A new adhesive has been unveiled that that could help dentists go through with cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Triodent have released the Griptab, which allows dentists to get a secure grip when handling crowns, onlays, inlays and veneers and means that the restorations can be picked up and put down again several times during procedures.
Dr George Freedman, founder and past president of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and a founder of the Canadian Academy for Esthetic Dentistry, claimed that the Griptab lessens the risk of dropping implants.
He said: "We've used Griptab many times already and it works brilliantly. We're very excited about it. It worked like a charm."
The adhesive comes in three sizes and is resistant to Silane and moisture.
Last week, a top British dentist claimed that the popularity of cosmetic dentistry is growing at the moment, with some of the most requested treatments being veneers, teeth-whitening and orthodontic work.
