3M Introduces New Universal Restorative

For busy dental professionals, a variety of responsibilities and tasks make staying on schedule a challenge. Implementing time-saving products and procedures is crucial to meeting these daily demands and even simple changes can make a significant difference. In order to help dentists increase efficiencies, 3M introduces 3M™ Filtek™ Universal Restorative – a new universal composite that offers a modernized approach to anterior and posterior restorations, with a simplified shading process and advanced composite technology to provide strong and esthetic results.

Knowing efficiency is key, 3M simplified the overall shade selection process. Using NaturalMatch technology, 3M developed eight designer shades, plus an Extra White (XW) that cover the 19 VITA classical and bleach shades.1 A Pink Opaquer was also created to mask metal and stained dentition. In addition, the shades have one universal opacity to meet most clinical needs.

Filtek Universal Restorative utilizes NaturalMatch technology, a blend of 3M’s composite technologies for durability and esthetics. Propriety low-stress monomers reduce shrinkage stress, while use of nanofillers creates a TRUE nanocomposite that provides high strength and excellent wear resistance.

Filtek Universal Restorative also features capsules that can be warmed2 and an improved tip design that allows the material to extrude like a flowable composite, and then become more viscous for shaping. At 8 mm, the tip is longer than our previous universal capsules, which enables good adaptation even in hard to reach areas.
