High Performance, Ultra-High Durability: Today's Bulk-Fill Restoratives
November 21, 2018
Bulk-fill composites are continually improving, as manufacturers develop features that precisely target clinicians’ concerns.
A high-strength ultra-fine particle composite may be used as a one-step application for bulk filling up to the occlusal surface (up to 4 mm) without the need for capping or veneering with another composite.
New technology offers durable and longer-lasting restorations with high gloss retention and low shrinkage stress/volumetric shrinkage.
Although new generations of bulk-fill composites have been developed, concerns and misconceptions about their features persist. Therefore, even though bulk-fill materials offer distinct advantages for practice efficiency, clinicians might not have full confidence in these restorations. However, the truth is that bulk-fill composites are continually improving, as manufacturers develop features that precisely target clinicians’ concerns about employing these materials.
For example, a high-strength ultra-fine particle composite with ideal viscosity, handling, and adaptation characteristics offers ultra-high durability, color stability, and low volumetric shrinkage for efficiency and predictable success. This eBook explains how new technology has improved this new generation of bulk-fills and what that means for your practice.
