  • With Smart Chromatic Technology, dental composite can match surrounding tooth structure, creating the perfect shade match for any patient.
  • The restoration will continue to match even as the patient’s surrounding tooth changes shades.
  • Regular particle sizes in resin composite contribute to increased strength and a smooth, highly polished finish. 

Until recently, resin composites were colored—or had their colors modified—via the chemical process, using optical modifiers/pigments to make the composites similar to the natural tooth shade.

However, a new composite resin now includes the ability to match tooth color by virtue of its optical structure—which means that the particles will reflect the same color as the surrounding tooth structure. This creates the perfect shade match for any patient.

Combining innovative shade-matching ability with exceptional handling, polishability, and strength, this next generation of universal composites has much to offer your practice and your patients.
