COLTENE is a global leader in dental consumables and small equipment covering the whole dental treatment process. Dentists and dental labs worldwide rely on the company’s products for implant-based therapies and dental reconstructions, as well as traditional therapies. COLTENE has been the leading developer and manufacturer of high-precision impression materials and innovative, aesthetically-pleasing filling materials since the mid-sixties. In 1990, the Swiss Coltène AG joined forces with the American company Whaledent Inc., a producer of technical dental consumables established in 1956 in New York. Since then, the combined Coltène/Whaledent brand has brought polymer chemistry-based impression and filling materials, a broad range of high-precision mechanical instruments, dental pins and posts, carbide and diamond burs and other rotary instruments.
