It is available in the most popular shades, three levels of opacity: Enamel (80%), Universal (85%), and Dentin (90%), and three non-VITA FX Enamel shades.
8. FIT SA™
This self-adhesive nanohybrid flowable composite eliminates the need for a technique-sensitive bonding procedure. Perfect for liners, Class V restorations, and PRR restorations, it features bioactive Giomer Technology and is clinically proven to prevent secondary decay.
9. 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.
GrandioSO, the 89% filled universal nanohybrid composite, is extremely tooth-like with over 10 years of proven performance, excellent esthetics, and superior handling. Formulated to mimic many of the physical properties of natural tooth structure, including elasticity, thermocycling, and flexural and compressive strength, GrandioSO enhances performance where it matters most: at the margin.
11. NATURAL ELEGANCE PREMIUM FLOW NANO COMPOSITE
This light-cure, highly radiopaque, resin-based, flowable composite possesses thixotropic properties that 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 in a flowable formulation: OMNICHROMA® FLOW.
PermaFlo flowable composite is a light-cure, radiopaque, methacrylate-based, composite available in eight shades. Its thixotropic properties impart ideal flowability for improved adaptation. PermaFlo composite is 68% filled by weight with an average particle size of 0.7μm, and it demonstrates a low film thickness.
14. Predicta® Bioactive Core
Predicta Bioactive Core is a dual-cure composite for core buildups and post cementing procedures. It releases calcium and phosphate ions and releases and recharges fluoride ions. It is available in multiple viscosities and shades.
15. 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 confidence in the premium handling qualities and highly esthetic restorations.
