Lucida: A word that in Italian language means polished
We are proud to present to you our latest development. A system that solves several problems of the common dentists and the expert ones. For this development, we created a partnership with DiaShine USA who was at all the time up to the highest standards in material quality, research, development and proactivity to make this product a reality.
A complete solution to final gloss
For over 35 years in restorative dentistry, our common experience with the final shine is generally with a felt wheel combined with a paste to obtain the maximum gloss, unfortunately for some of us, it has been somehow unreliable and sometimes non-higienical. The problem we always faced was the inability to autoclave the felts plus the cost and thickness of these.
”In my 40 years of career, LUCIDA is the best polishing for composites without a doubt, clinically proven and scientifically demonstrated by our surface analysis in Ancona UniversityProf. Angelo PutignanoStyle Italiano Founder
THE ADVANTAGES OF LUCIDA POLISH KIT
AUTOCLAVABLE AND REUSABLE
Latch mandrel for the Lucida Star Felt is autoclavable and ready to be reused.
ROUNDED ANGLES SHAPE
Thanks to Lucida Star rounded angles it is now possible to reach narrow area and get the desired intermittent touch.
Lucida Stars acquire a variable thickness depending on the pressure and speed applied.
EASIER AND SAVING TIME
The combined solution with Lucida Paste and Lucida Star felt allow to make a single-step composite restorations polishing.
THE POLISHING STEP HAS BEEN SIMPLIFIED
CLINICAL CASE BY DR OSAMA SHAALAN – MEMBER OF STYLE ITALIANO
By the introduction of new simple techniques, materials, and tools, we can simplify our daily work and make it predictable and repeatable. Thanks to the Lucida™ star-shaped felt and the one-step polishing paste, also the polishing step has been simplified!
The perio diamond bur from the Styleitaliano Finishing kit is ideal to even the surface at low speed, and to correct shape and contour.
The spiral wheel polisher is ideal for pre-polishing, thanks to its flexible shape which adapts to all tooth surfaces.
The Lucida™ Star Felt is a disposable polishing device. Latch mandrels for the Lucida Star Felt may be autoclaved and reused. The DiaShine Lucida™ Paste is completely water soluble. These two allow for a single-step polishing of composite restorations.
The final situation, with correct shape, shade and contour, and a glossy surface.

LUCIDA INTRO KIT
– 70 LUCIDA Star felt wheel
– 5 LUCIDA Mandrels
– 1 LUCIDA Paste
The Lucida product line is composed of 70 Lucida Star disposable felt wheels, 5 Lucida Mandrel autoclavable screw-on mandrels to hold the felts, and 1 Lucida Paste for extreme gloss in combination with the felts. An integral solution was given to all the problems faced with these high-gloss products, and not only, we had the chance of enhancing the results compared with the previously existing ones.
Lucida Mandrels are autoclavable and with 5 of them in each kit, a mounted felt is always ready for action.
With Lucida Star we have solved all the problems of the conventional felt wheels on several fronts. With its unique thickness we can reach areas that were never possible before and because of their convenient price, being sold always in abundant amounts, they are truly disposable. Their star shape allows them to have a desired intermittent touch and thanks to these rounded angles they acquire a variable thickness depending on the force and speed applied.
In combination with Lucida Paste, a sub-micron hybrid water-soluble patented polishing compound, the gloss obtained with this system is unique. Composite manufacturers are dedicating more and more resources on making their composites polishable. Gloss persistent Lucida is the missing piece and is finally here
