3M™ ESPE™ Filtek™ Bulk Fill Flowable Restorative

3M™ ESPE™ Filtek™ Bulk Fill Flowable Restorative is a bulk fill flowable that dentists can trust because of its high strength and wear resistance.

Recommended for bulk fill liner/base applications, Filtek

Bulk Fill composite helps dentists save time and steps. Its flowable viscosity provides good adaptation, and its 4 mm depth of cure reduces the need to incrementally layer restorative material. It also offers better wear resistance than other leading bulk fill flowables, while maintaining low stress and shrinkage. Most importantly, Filtek Bulk Fill flowable restorative offers higher compressive and diametral tensile strength than competitors, so dentists can feel confident placing it as a bulk fill composite.

Filtek Bulk Fill flowable is easy to use with both capsule and syringe delivery options, as well as availability in four shades-Universal, A1, A2 and A3. The capsules, syringe tips and plungers are designed in a bright orange color for easy and quick identification in the operatory.
