From reliable, tried-and-true dental materials that have been used for years to brand new materials just hitting the market, it is important for clinicians to continue to stay aware of the options available for restoration. In this product showcase, we've highlighted the top composites.
1. 3M™ Filtek™ Supreme Flowable Restorative
3M's current flowable composites now have an improved syringe design to simplify placement. The tip produces virtually no bubbles or material run-on, and the syringe is more ergonomic, making it easier to hold and inject.
2. ACTIVA™ Presto™
ACTIVA Presto is the first universal light cure composite that uses biomimicry to protect the tooth. Its elevated handling and multiple shades provide elevated esthetics, and a patented rubberized resin gives unparalleled durability.
3. BRILLIANT EverGlow®
BRILLIANT EverGlow is a universal submicron hybrid composite offering easy polishability, gloss retention, ideal handling and exceptional blending properties. Available in seven universal shades plus enamel and opaque shades for highly aesthetic restorations.
4. Evanesce™ Nano-Enhanced Restorative
Truly universal for both anterior and posterior composite restorations, Evanesce Nano-Enhanced Universal Restorative features ideal, slump-free handling and beautiful shade matching to the VITA shade guide. Evanesce is highly polishable for the ultimate restorative esthetics.
5. FIT SA
This self-adhesive nano-hybrid flowable composite eliminates the need for the technique-sensitive bonding procedure. Perfect for liners, Class V, and PRR restorations, it features bioactive Giomer Technology, and is clinically proven to prevent secondary decay.
6. G-ænial™ Universal Injectable
G-ænial™ Universal Injectable is an injectable high-strength ultra-fine particle composite with ideal viscosity, handling, and adaptation characteristics. It provides superb adaptation to the cavity, has high flexural strength, and may be used for all Class I-V cavities.
7. CLEARFIL MAJESTY™ ES-2 Universal
CLEARFIL MAJESTY ES-2 Universal offers a single-shade option for restorations without needing a blocker or opaquer. Light Diffusion Technology (LDT) makes restorations diffuse light in a similar way to the tooth structure. The material integrates easily and smoothly into the surrounding tooth structure, and preparation margins become virtually invisible. CLEARFIL MAJESTY™ ES-2 Universal is available in both syringe and PLT dispensing (unit dose).
8. NATURAL ELEGANCE PREMIUM FLOW NANO COMPOSITE
A light-cured, highly radiopaque, resin-based, flowable composite. Its thixotropic properties impart ideal flowability for improved adaptation, making it ideal as a liner/base.
OMNICHROMA is the world's first one-shade universal composite to esthetically match every patient from A1 to D4 with a single shade of composite. Every Shade. One Choice. Also available as a flowable, OMNICHROMA FLOW.
10. Predicta® Bioactive Core
Predicta® Bioactive Core is a dual-cure composite for core build-ups and post cementations. It releases calcium and phosphate ions and releases and recharges fluoride ions. Available in multiple viscosities and shades.
11. RE-GEN™ Flowable Composite Liner
RE-GEN™ Flowable Composite Liner contains Bioglass 45S5 to aid in the prevention of erosion and secondary decay. The Bio-Regernerative nature of RE-GEN™ helps preserve marginal integrity.
12. SimpliShade™ Universal Composite
SimpliShade covers all 16 VITA shades in just 3 shades. Simplify your inventory management and save yourself time on shade selection while having the confidence in premium handling qualities and highly esthetic restorations.
13. Tetric® Prime
Tetric Prime is a high-performance universal composite system that offers shade compatibility with IPS e.max® lithium disilicate, twelve streamlined shades with outstanding chameleon effect, and high radiopacity to visualize marginal integrity and ensures proper diagnosis in future recalls.
14. Ti-Core® Flow+
Reinforced core material and post cement all in one. Ti-Core Flow+ offers many benefits, including ease of placement, exceptional bond to the tooth's structure, dual-cure, no ditching or grooving, and more.
15. VisCalor bulk
VisCalor bulk is the world's first thermo-viscous bulk-fill, offering a unique 2-in-1 restorative. Once warmed, VisCalor bulk delivers the viscosity of a flowable. It then cools once placed, offering the immediate sculptability of a packable and eliminating the need for a separate base or liner, multiple increments, and/or an occlusal capping layer.
ZNano™ is a universal nanocomposite that simplifies the color-matching process and achieves life-like esthetics. 5 adaptive shades, high polishability, superior physical properties, and non-stick handling offer easy and beautiful restorations.
