Charlotte, North Carolina, U.S.A, 01 April 2019 — Dentsply Sirona’s new TPH Spectra® ST flow extends the benefits of our novel SphereTEC® filler technology to flowable composites. Excellent chameleon blending enables 5 shades to cover the full VITA®1 range, and flow-on-demand handling provides versatility across all traditional flowable indications.
Dentsply Sirona’s latest innovation in composite filler technology, SphereTEC®, was introduced to the dental industry in 2015, and to North America in 2017. Over 14 million composite restorations later, clinicians will now be able to enjoy SphereTEC benefits in all composite cases with the comprehensive TPH Spectra ST portfolio. Designed to perfectly complement TPH Spectra ST universal composite, new TPH Spectra® ST flow Flowable Composite Restorative is characterized by this cutting-edge filler technology.
SphereTEC technology enables TPH Spectra ST flow composite to excel in the areas that matter most to dentists: handling, esthetics, and durability. The spherical-shaped filler particles allow for excellent adaptation to cavity surfaces, and work together with smaller irregular-shaped filler particles in the material to achieve versatile, flow-on-demand-handling. Precise match of SphereTEC filler to the TPH Spectra ST flow resin matrix creates an excellent chameleon shade blending effect and a perfect match to TPH Spectra ST universal composite shades. The unique structure of SphereTEC fillers maximizes composite strength and durability, while their sub-micron primary particle size ensures excellent esthetics and polishability.
The new TPH Spectra ST flow composite brings enhanced simplicity and versatility to traditional flowable indications. It uses five universal CLOUD shades A1 to A4 to cover the entire VITA®1 Classic range, streamlining flowable composite inventory and ensuring highly esthetic clinical results thanks to their distinct chameleon effect. TPH Spectra ST flow composite also offers one bleach shade (BW), two opaque dentin shades (D1 and D3), and one translucent enamel shade (E1) to accommodate special cases.
Dentists can dispense this flowable composite using syringes or the Compula® Tips unit-dose option. Syringe refills are packaged with 2 syringes (1.8g each) and 25 syringe tips, while Compula® Tips refills contain 16 Compula® Tips (0.25g each).
TPH Spectra ST flow composite will be available for purchase from authorized distributors on April 8, 2019. With this product introduction, dentists can simplify every restoration with the TPH Spectra ST family of composites, featuring SphereTEC filler technology:
· TPH Spectra ST universal composite covers the most common cases,

· And now TPH Spectra ST flow composite provides efficient esthetic flowable versatility.
