DE-Mark is a highly radiopaque flowable hybrid liner.
DE-Mark is placed in a thin layer over the entire floor of the restoration using either the syringe tip or an explorer.
You can see just how thin the DE-Mark is applied and then cured for 20 seconds
Renamel Nano is placed one cusp at a time. Each layer should not exceed 2 to 2½ mm in depth. Cure increments for 20 seconds.

Finished restoration after polishing
This restoration shows an old amalgam that needs to be replaced with composite. After the amalgam is removed, the tooth is prepped. Place bonding agent in a thin layer. Then place your cavity liner into the preparation before placement of a microhybrid or nanofill composite so you can clearly identify the composite on an X-Ray. Renamel De-Mark from Cosmedent is a hyper radiopaque cavity liner for easy identification between composite and tooth structure.
Place your desired composite in 2 to 2 ½ mm increments. The cusps are built one at a time to reduce stress on tooth structure. Cure, finish and polish for a long lasting, invisible restoration.
