Would you like to skip the step of selecting the shade of your usual composite? The universal composite that uses Adaptive Light Matching technology renders your restorations invisible, achieving highly mimetic results with one shade, regardless of the patient's shade (A1-D4).
A single composite shade that matches the 16 VITA shades? Venus ONE Shade determines the shade of the restoration by absorbing the light waves reflected by the surrounding tooth. That's not all! This new range of composites is not only universal and tooth-colored, it also has features and innovations that you will see in more detail below.
What are the advantages, features and benefits of using Venus One Shade dental composite?.
This monochromatic composite covers more than 80% of restorations with just one syringe, Venus ONE Shade is the universal composite definition for everyday clinical cases thanks to:
- Excellent shade adaptation properties.
- Minimizes chippings and secondary caries.
- Free of BPA and Bis-GMA.
- Efficient handling and molding.
- High radio-opacity, which facilitates diagnosis.
- Long working time.
- Excellent polishability.
- More than 10 years in the market with patented scientific evidence.
Indications for Venus ONE Shade composite
This new color integrates with the rest of the Venus Pearl and Venus Diemond composite range and is ideal for:
- Basic restorations (e.g., in posteriors)
- Classes I
- Classes II
- Classes V
- Composite buttons (as discreet as the Invisalign aligners) .
- Small and large basic posterior restorations that do not extend buccally (only 1 piece)on occlusal faces
- Restorations that extend buccally (several pieces) but are not located in the aesthetic zone:
- Large posterior occlusal restorations
- Small anterior restorations
- Cervical restorations
Clinic case: Class I
Can Venus ONE Shade be used in previous ones? For the most visible aesthetic area it is advisable to use the rest of the Venus Pearl or Venus Diamond range, of which a wide variety of colors and levels of translucency are available.
How is the mimetism of the Venus ONE Shade universal composite achieved?
The Adaptive Light Matching technology makes it possible to use one syringe regardless of tooth shade (A1 - D4). The composite has a very high translucency, which causes it to determine the shade of the restoration by absorbing the light waves reflected by the surrounding tooth. Basically copies the color of the tooth and projects it.
In addition, it incorporates a balanced system of filler and pigment that matches the typical color space of natural teeth (red to yellow).

Consistency of Venus ONE Shade composite
The properties of this composite allow a long working time, as it does not pre-polymerize with the light of the cabinet, has a stable handling, allows easy sculpting (does not slip and does not stick to the instrument).
It is available in two consistencies:
- Creamy Consistency: Venus Pearl ONE Shade.
- Firm Consistency: Venus Diamond ONE Shade.
What is the difference between the two consistencies?
It is important to keep in mind that creamy is not the same as fluid, a synonym for creamy would be soft and for firm would be hard. Both consistencies come in paste, with the same indications and are excellent for modeling and polishing. It all depends on your preference. 85% of dentists use the creamy consistency.
Examples of competitor's similar viscosity:
- Venus Pearl ONE Shade: Empress (Ivoclar. Nanohybrid), Tetric (Ivoclar), CeramX (Dentsply) and Admira Fusion (Voco)
- Venus Diamond ONE Shade: Filtek P60 (3M) and Herculite (Kerr).
Restorations with excellent strength
To withstand the high masticatory forces, composites for posterior restorations must offer high flexural strength, as the maximum masticatory force in posteriors is twice as high as in the anterior area.
The flexural strength in Venus ONE Shade is particularly high and the minimal contraction force .
A study conducted in Germany by Prof. Nicoleta Ilie confirms the high bending strength of the new Venus ONE Shade. Both show high levels of resistance after artificial aging.
The aim of the study was to compare the initial flexural strength and after artificial aging of three monochromatic composites.
The Venus ONE Shade range of composites statistically exhibited significantly higher flexural strengths than the competition:
- ISO4049 limit: 80 MPa
- Venus Diamond ONE Shade: 164.2 ± 14 MPa
- Venus Pearl ONE Shade: 155.6 ± 16.9 MPa
Results showed that the material exhibits increased abrasion resistance being ideal for withstanding masticatory forces while maintaining an optimal level after aging.
Thanks to the TCD-urethane matrix and the optimized nanohybrid filling system, it allows adurable composite tooth reconstruction, reducing chippings, fractures, secondary caries and post-intervention sensitivity.
BPA- and Bis-GMA-free composite
Its TCD matrix is free of bis-GMA and BPA-related monomers, which generates total peace of mind for Dentists and patients who are concerned about the potential health risks and biocompatibility of composites, especially in those clinics where Holistic Dentistry is developed.
Kulzer does not use BPA as a compound in resin-based dental products such as composites and adhesive systems. You candownload the certificate here.
How to apply Venus ONE Shade composite
Video: Application of the Venus Pearl ONE Shade composite
The composite is applied on B1, A2 and C4 colored artificial teeth, the initial color and consistency of the composite is shown in the syringe (completely creamy and white color), you can observe the efficient handling of the composite material, no spillage, easy to sculpt with a creamy and low sticky consistency.
Venus ONE Shade is not a bulk fill composite! The layer thickness should be 2 mm applying a polymerization time of 20 seconds.
Venus ONE Shade determines the color of the restoration achieving a chameleon effect that adapts to the 16 VITA shades.
Clinical case with Venus Pearl ONE Shade by Dr. Edoardo Fossati: Secondary caries on teeth 25 and 27
The patient comes to the clinic with secondary caries at the margins of the restoration of teeth 25 and 27.
The insufficient restorations of pieces 25 and 27 are removed, and the cavity is excavated and prepared.
Selective enamel etching of teeth 25 and 27.
iBOND Universal is applied.
The reconstruction of the parts begins with the creation of the interproximal walls, using Venus Pearl ONE Shade.
Finally, the occlusal surface is modeled. In addition, the occlusal surface is characterized using a stain.
After polishing, the rubber dam is removed and the occlusion is adjusted..
Final situation. The shade of Venus Pearl ONE Shade blends perfectly with the surrounding tooth color.

Presentation of Venus ONE Shade composite.
As mentioned above, Venus ONE Shade composites come in two consistencies (creamy and firm), both of which come in replacement syringes and capsules, also available are Launch Kits of both syringes and capsules (Kits include a 4ml iBOND universal adhesive).
The syringes and capsules in the Venus ONE Shade range are easy to distinguish, they all feature a white plunger or tip as appropriate, plus the creamy consistency Venus Pearl ONE Shade has a red label while the Venus Diamond ONE Shade has a white label.
Venus ONE Shade composite is used daily to solve complex cases in a very short time. Kulzer has over 10 years of scientific evidence and has proven to have one of the most successful dental composites on the market. Kulzer has merged in a single syringe the most innovative features with a patented matrix by the brand.
Restorations have never been so easy, you will definitely skip the color selection step, saving a lot of time and reducing stock management in your dental practice.
