Where: All dental practices doing restorative work could benefit from using VisCalor bulk, which provides the viscosity and adaptability of a flowable composite and the sculptability of a packable composite in a single material for a true monoblock concept.

When: As an 83% filled nano-hybrid composite, the material meets the need for a bulk-fill restorative for long-term performance. Also, with VisCalor bulk, restorations can be placed without a separate occlusal layer, multiple increments, or a base material.

Why: The VisCalor approach combines the viscosity of a flowable composite for application and adaptability with the sculptability of a packable composite for strength and performance. It also cuts the average time it takes to fill cavities—especially those that are 4 mm deep—by more than 40%. As a result, VisCalor bulk can be used for both small and large cavities no matter how deep or narrow, without compromising adaptation or strength.

*How: VisCalor bulk’s ability to hold up over time and wear stands out compared with the durability of other bulk-fill materials. Combined with its other physical properties (flexural strength, polymerization shrinkage, shrinkage stress, water absorption, etc), VisCalor bulk’s 2-in-1 material minimizes procedural steps, reduces costs, and increases simplicity, making this product the ideal bulk-fill restorative.
