Temporaries that last.
- Substantially higher flexural strength and fracture toughness
- Improved initial hardness
- Great adaption and fit
- Outstanding esthetics and color stability
- Faster curing
- High biocompatibility
- Suited for long term temporaries
For years, Luxatemp has been the material of choice for perfectly
fitting temporary crowns and bridges worldwide. With the
new Luxatemp Star, DMG has now made the best even better*!
Luxatemp Star impresses with outstanding flexural strength and
break resistance ratings and an improved initial hardness thus
making temporary restorations stronger and more stable than
ever before. The dauntless bite into a candied apple is no longer
a toughness test, neither for the material nor for the relationship
between the dentist and the patient. And, of course, something
that lasts should also look good for the duration. Luxatemp
Star’s exceptional long-term color stability ensures that. Another
plus: the material now reaches its final hardness even faster.
The advantages Luxatemp has long been known for, of course,
have not changed: highest esthetics and excellent workability.
Complementary to Luxatemp Star DMG offers a wide range of
other premium products for temporary care – from glaze

Luxatemp temporaries last because one focus in the product’s
development was mechanical stability. Besides its improved initial
hardness, Luxatemp Star impresses with top ratings for break
resistance and flexural strength and thus ensures even more stability
Especially the flexural strength properties determine when a material
caves in and breaks. Ultimately, this is what the success of a restoration
is measured by because slight deviations can be vital, especially in case
of two- or multi-part temporaries.
As its predecessor Luxatemp-Fluorescence, Luxatemp Star also
impresses esthetically. The material’s fluorescence is similar to that
of a natural tooth. 6 different shades give a dentist plenty of rope to
create a harmonious, natural overall picture. Especially beautiful: the
good impression lasts. Luxatemp Star’s excellent color stability gives
even long-term temporaries a lastingly attractive appearance.
Temporaries must fit – immediately and precisely, without lengthy
grinding and correcting. Luxatemp Star offers a perfect fit that is
dependable. The key to precision lies in the material’s superior
characteristics: optimal flow characteristics in the impression taking
process, extremely minimal shrinkage, low water absorption – all that
allows for precision work. And the practical Automix and Smartmix
systems simplify the mixing and the application process.
Perfect when everything comes together like that.

This outstanding material impresses with excellent flexural strength
and break resistance and is well-suited for long-term temporaries as
well. Besides Luxatemp Star, DMG offers the tried and tested
Luxatemp-Automix Plus and Luxatemp-Solar, a dual-curing
variant with a long rubber-elastic phase particularly applicative for
A fluid, light-curing composite specifically developed for temporary
restoration add-ons and repairs. Also well-suited for smaller fillings and
A light-curing composite for temporary restorations of inlay
preparations and temporary closures of implant screw access canals.
Luxatemp-Inlay combines the advantages of elasticity and easy
removal in one piece.
The eugenol-free temporary luting cement with its thin film thickness
is well-suited for all applications, regardless of whether the definitive
cementation is conventional or adhesive.
Light-curing one-component varnish that gives the temporary a natural
shine and helps reducing plaque formation.
The time-saving thermoplastic impression polymer: tablets are simply
warmed in warm water and formed around the teeth to be restored.
