The best just got better with Luxatemp Ultra
Stronger and more durable than ever.
Luxatemp temporaries last longer because during development the emphasis was placed on the mechanical stability of the product. In addition to an improved initial hardness, Luxatemp Ultra has incredible values with regard to break resistance and flexural strength providing greater stability and durability. Flexural strength, in particular, determines the point at which the material gives way and breaks. Ultimately, this is how the success of a restoration is measured since minor deviations can be critical, especially with two-unit and multi-unit temporaries. A recent major university study found that Luxatemp Ultra surpasses all leading temporary materials in flexural strength.
Outstanding aesthetics, with superior stability.
Like its predecessor Luxatemp Fluorescence, Luxatemp Ultra also impresses aesthetically. The material’s fluorescence is similar to that of a natural tooth. The six (6) different shades give a dentist plenty of options to create a harmonious, natural overall picture. Especially beautiful: the good impression lasts. Luxatemp Ultra's excellent colour stability gives long-term temporaries a lastingly attractive appearance.
A fast and easy fit.
Luxatemp Ultra makes it fast and easy to craft temporaries that fit precisely, thanks to its superior handling characteristics. The material has optimal flow characteristics, cuts and handles easier, and cures faster. The convenient Automix and Smartmix systems simplify the mixing and the application process.
Perfect when everything comes together like that.

|"I could not practice aesthetic dentistry without Luxatemp."
— Dr. Larry Rosenthal, DDS, PC
|“Having been in clinical practice for over 30 years and educating other dentists for the past 25, there are only a few products that stand out as the very best! One of these is Luxatemp. Since my initial use in 1996, to the restorative case I prepared and provisionalized yesterday, this is definitely a product I could not be without. Other provisional materials may claim they are equal to Luxatemp, but that is just not the case and no other provisional material has stood the test of time and proven its excellence like Luxatemp. I use it in my practice daily and it has been my material of choice in all of my live-patient hands-on courses for the past 20+ years.”
— Dr. David S. Hornbrook
Luxatemp Ultra, a look that is hard to beat.
For years now, the name Luxatemp has been associated with precision-fit temporary crowns and bridges. Luxatemp Ultra has once again raised the bar - perfecting the perfect temporary material! Incorporating proprietary nano technology, Luxatemp Ultra continues the Luxatemp tradition of leading the dental industry's provisional category.
Luxatemp Ultra boasts of its flexural strength, break resistance and improved initial hardness making temporaries more stable than ever before.
The extraordinary color stability of Luxatemp Ultra offers a guarantee you can rely on. It also provides additional benefits in practical use: The material reaches its final hardness quicker.
The benefits that have long been associated with Luxatemp have, of course, all been preserved: top esthetics and excellent working properties.

Frequently Asked Questions
Luxatemp Ultra has a greater degree of flexural strength compared to Luxatemp Plus or Luxatemp Florescence. Luxatemp Ultra is recommended since it is the latest product within the Luxatemp family of products; however, product recommendation will vary depending on product being currently used and whether an issue is being experienced as well as the nature of the issue.
The temperature of Luxatemp Ultra during polymerization is low (approximately <40° depending on the measurement method). It also does not contain any methyl methacrylates or peroxide which minimizes the risk of an allergic reaction and prevents gum irritation.
Luxatemp Ultra should be removed during the elastic phase, i.e. 1:30-2:20 minutes after mixing Luxatemp Ultra. The time applies for intraoral application. Outside of the mouth, the time value doubles. The setting process should be monitored with a probe or with a sample of the material placed on the hand and tested for a “gummy bear” consistency.
Yes, Luxatemp Ultra is biocompatible because it does not contain methyl methacrylates which minimizes the risk of an allergic reaction. Additionally, the temperature of Luxatemp Ultra during polymerization is low (approximately <40° depending on the measurement method).
Luxatemp Ultra is chemically cured. Luxatemp Solar is light cured which is the reason for the black cartridge.
Yes, acrylic bonds to Luxatemp. Ensure surface is clean. Lightly abrade the pertinent spot on the restoration with a cutter or sandblaster. Apply monomer from acrylic to Luxatemp and then add acrylic to it.
Yes, ensure the area is clean. Then lightly abrade the area of the restoration with a cutter or sandblaster. Apply a bonding agent in accordance with the directions for use and add Luxatemp.
Luxatemp does not contain sulfur or sulfuric compounds such as sulfites.
When composite material sets, a very thin layer of non-hardened acrylic is present due to the presence of atmospheric oxygen that prevents the acrylic from setting completely.
The smear layer can be easily removed with alcohol.
- Luxatemp Ultra: A1, A2, A3, A3.5, B1 and Bleach Light
- Luxatemp Fluorescence: A1, A2, A3, A3.5, B1 and Bleach Light
- Luxatemp Plus: A1, A2, A3.5, B1 and Bleach Light
Luxatemp is available in Automix cartridges for a 10:1 dispenser and Smartmix syringe.
You can make 34-38 single crowns from one cartridge.
You can make 23-25 three-unit bridges from one cartridge.
You can make approximately 10 single crowns from one Smartmix syringe.
You can make approximately 5 three-unit bridges from one Smartmix syringe.
Leave the used mixing tip on the cartridge as a cap.
The setting of the cement may be inhibited.
Bubbles can be avoided by keeping the mixing tip immersed in the material preventing air from becoming trapped.
Luxatemp does not contain gluten.
Luxatemp does not contain BPA, metal or fluoride
Generally, long-term temporaries made with Luxatemp can remain in the mouth for roughly 6 months.
Temporaries can be repaired with LuxaFlow Ultra.
With Luxatemp Solar the elastic phase can be prolonged because final polymerization is done by light curing which makes it well-suited for multi-unit bridges.
