Riva LightCure GIC P/L
Light Cured Resin Reinforced Glass Ionomer Restorative Material
Light Cured Resin Reinforced Glass Ionomer Restorative Material (RMGIC)
The multi awarded easy handling glass ionomer
Drawing on 50 years of dental research experience, SDI’s ionglass™ filler was developed specially for Riva and is manufactured in Australia by our glass experts.
The ionglass™ technology mimics the natural tooth structure, guaranteeing restorations will withstand long term mastication forces and patients will be satisfied with the treatment.
Riva Light Cure contains ionglassTM filler, made of a unique blend of different sizes of ultrafine highly reactive glass particles.
This bioactive proprietary hybrid glass enables long term restorations, being outstanding in handling, strength and aesthetics.
The ionglassTM filler contains fluoride and strontium ions which synergistically enhance tooth bioremineralisation.

Riva Light Cure mimics teeth
Riva Light Cure ionglassTM biomimetic technology mimics dentine’s hydrophilic characteristic. It also mimics translucency and opacity of dentine and enamel, for a beautiful natural-looking restoration.
Riva Light Cure replaces dentine and bonds chemically to the tooth. No etching or adhesive is required, dramatically reducing the risk of sensitivity. A patient with a nice smile and no sensitivity has better quality of life.
High flexural strength
Riva Light Cure with ionglassTM biomimetic technology ensures very high flexural strength, for long term restorations that will withstand mastication forces without cracking. The high flexural strength also makes Riva Light Cure the ideal material for minimally invasive treatments, cervical erosions/abfraction lesions, class V restorations and as a base or liner.
High fluoride release
The extra strong matrix provides great fluoride release. This increases the chances that Riva Light Cure restorations will be free of caries, while having very low wear.
Research shows that Riva Light Cure has the highest cumulative fluoride release at 6 weeks.† With Riva Light Cure, patients receive long term restorations every time, increasing their satisfaction with the treatment provided by the dentist.
Riva Light Cure can be effortlessly placed and sculptured without sticking to your instruments. This outstanding restorative does not pluck, saving you time and maintaining placement integrity, especially when restoring upper teeth.
Riva Light Cure offers fantastic handling, perfect for quick placements in patients who require quick restorations, such as children, people with special needs or patients with back or neck problems.
Riva Light Cure is formulated to give you the best aesthetic result.† It provides high translucency and ideal optical properties. This chameleon effect effortlessly blends with surrounding tooth structure and dentine.
