Frequently Asked Questions
How are Veneer
Styx more efficient for aiding in veneer cementation than using one
ís fingers or other implements?
Styx are easy to use and are ideal for the positioning and
cementation of porcelain veneers. Bulky fingers tend to obstruct one ís view,
making it difficult to both see the veneer and to direct light to the portion
of the veneer that needs to be cured.†
Those slippery, gloved fingers have compromised tactile sensation and
can inadvertently cause the veneer to move, resulting in undesired results and
costly consequences.† No other dental
implement is designed to adequately hold and position veneers without
slippage.† Only Veneer
Styx can give the assurance of predictable results while enhancing
the dentist ís vision during veneer placement. The slender, contoured design of
the Veneer Styx tip keeps the margins of the veneer clearly visible and
accessible, allowing easy access for the light source, floss and interproximal
serrated metal strips.
What makes Veneer
Styx tips so unique?
Styx tips are made of a semi-soft, flexible and slightly tacky
material that is ideal for positioning and holding the veneer in place during
the cementation process.† Each tip has
an internal hex, which allows it to rotate to fit both anterior and posterior,
maxillary and mandibular teeth.† It has
a slender design that narrows at one end and widens at the other (for cervical
and incisal widths respectively), and a body design that follows the convex
nature of the veneer.† Additionally, Veneer
Styx are excellent for seating inlays and onlays, as they apply just
the right amount of gentle pressure without any slippage.† Veneer Styx tips are
also disposable, so they are compliant with infection control guidelines.
How many Veneer
Styx Starter Kits do you recommend a dentist who places veneers has
recommended that dentists who incorporate porcelain veneers into their practice
have two Veneer Styx per operatory and enough replacement tips to
cover the number of veneer patients they see over a six month period.
