Description

Filtek Bulk Fill Posterior Restorative is a single-step composite that can be placed in 5 mm increments. This bulkfill composite eliminates the need for expensive dispensing devices, additional layers and multiple steps, giving dentists a fast and easy option for direct restorations. Its two novel methacrylate monomers act to lower polymerization stress and enables bulk placement without sacrificing strength or wear resistance. Filtek Bulk Fill Posterior Restorative utilizes the same nanofiller technology of other Filtek restoratives. Filtek Bulk Fill Posterior Restorative is available in capsule or syringe delivery in five shades: A1, A2, A3, B1, and C2. Filtek Bulk Fill Posterior Restorative was evaluated by 40 consultants in 1380 uses. This bulk fill composite received a 91% clinical rating.

Product Features

Filtek Bulk Fill Posterior Restorative has an adequate depth of cure so that most posterior restorations can be completed in a single layer. The composite is easy to dispense from capsules and adapts well to cavity walls. The texture is a little waxy, and the placement instrument may drag on the surface during sculpting. Final anatomy is easy to achieve with a diamond during finishing, and the composite polishes to a smooth surface with standard rotary instruments. The available shades are adequate for posterior use, and the translucency allows good blending with enamel. In deep restorations or stained teeth, the translucency creates a gray appearance. Filtek Bulk Fill Posterior Restorative exhibits radiopacity so that it is visible on radiographs.
