Why Use a Bulk Fill?

Ever wondered if a bulk fill was right for you? Or if the product you’re using might not be working the way it was meant to? Then check out Dentistry Today’s article and case study about Estelite Bulk Fill Flow. The article demonstrates the advantages of the product and explains why it is the bulk fill of choice for countless dental professionals—perhaps why it might even be the right choice for you.


Bulk fills offer countless advantages to dentists, but the main benefit of using a bulk fill is how much faster and easier they make restorations compared to traditional methods.

Without bulk fills, dentists typically must cure several increments of composite in order to complete a deep restoration. Bulk fills save time and effort in reducing this process to a single layer.

Estelite Bulk Fill Flow takes only 10 seconds to cure up to 4 mm deep without the need for a capping layer. It has beautiful, glossy results and leaves both the dentist and the patient smiling. And, most importantly, it’s faster than almost every competitor.

See for yourself how fast it is compared to other products:

 

And despite the speed and depth of Estelite Bulk Fill Flow, dentists can feel rest assured knowing that Estelite Bulk Fill Flow flows and adapts into the cavity until it is flush against the surface. This capability of the product prevents restoration failures and provides an excellent marginal seal. The diagram below demonstrates this characteristic.

Incisal Edge Repair with OMNICHROMA Composite

Repairing a small chip on the incisal edge can be very difficult to match the color and very difficult to obtain a long lasting permanent result. This is especially true if the patient grinds or clenches their teeth. It can be helpful to inform the patient to be careful of bad habits, such as biting nails, pencils, or pens and biting down on hard foods. A night guard should be advised to protect the teeth from hard occlusal trauma at night. When the composite restoration comes out and the patient didn’t follow the dentist’s advice, they have themselves to blame! Getting the shade correct on an anterior tooth is also very important. This article will show how a new composite material called OMNICHROMA (Tokuyama Dental America) works well to blend into the color of the natural tooth using structural color.
