Evaluators’ Comments

  • “Nice finish and polish with the EQUIA Forte Coat.”
  • “Easy to pack, even in subgingival areas.”
  • “When doing a core buildup and having to pack and contour to create a wall, this material makes it easy while also being less messy.”
  • “Placed it on a sensitive tooth and it took the sensitivity away.”
  • “I don’t like that it has to be triturated.”
  • “Great for pediatric patients, however, once you consider the activating/dispensing gun as well, it can be bulky.”
  • “A lot of steps, especially if you use the cavity conditioner.”

Clinical Tips

  • This material is soft and cuts really easy when prepping for a core buildup.
  • You want to sculpt it before it hardens too much as it gets sticker as it sets up.
  • Use a fine diamond to finish.
  • For Class V restorations, packing the material with your finger works well to contour to the root structure and is sometimes easier than using an instrument.
  • Can use with cavity conditioner to improve adhesion.
