Description

BEAUTIFIL Flow Plus is a fluoride-releasing and recharging, light-cured flowable restorative material that incorporates Giomer technology. It is indicated for all classes of anterior and posterior restorations and for the repair of restorations and prostheses. BEAUTIFIL Flow Plus is designed to be a base, a liner and a final restorative all in one. This flowable composite is available in two viscosities and is delivered from syringes designed for no dripping or oozing. BEAUTIFIL Flow Plus cures in 20 seconds with a halogen light unit and in 10 seconds with an LED light-curing unit when placed in 2 mm increments. Zero Flow (F00) shades are: Bleach White , A0.5, A1, A2, A3, A3.5, A4, Opaque shades A0.5-O, A1-O, A2-O, and Incisal. Low Flow (F03) shades are: Bleach White,  A0.5, A1, A2, A3, A3.5, A4, Opaque shades A2-O, A3-O, Incisal, Milky White, and Cervical. The BEAUTIFIL Flow Plus Introductory Kit (available for a limited time only) contains four 2.2-g syringes of composite: one each of shades A2 and A3 in each of the two viscosities; manufacturer’s instructions; and product information. BEAUTIFIL Flow Plus is also available in refill syringes. BEAUTIFIL Flow Plus was evaluated by 15 consultants in 377 uses. BEAUTIFIL Flow Plus received a 91% clinical rating.
