Traditionally, dentists would have to use several layers of composite material to fill a deep preparation—an inconvenient, time-consuming process that still didn’t produce the best results. But the introduction of bulk fill composites has made these restorations easier, more durable, and more esthetic than ever before.

Initially intended to fill voids with one placement, bulk fills have expanded to multiple indications, including anterior and posterior restorations, core build-ups, splinting, indirect restorations (including inlays, onlays, and veneers), restorations of deciduous teeth, extended fissure sealing in molars and premolars, and the repair of defects in porcelain restorations, enamels, and temporaries.

An important feature of bulk fill composites is the materials’ ability to be cured and polymerized in 1 step, saving time for clinicians and their patients. These materials are also designed to be easier to handle and clinicians can readily find a material that best suits their workflows for any indication. Read on to brush up on many of the bulk fill composites that the industry has to offer.
